Providing a stylish, characterful and contemporary lifestyle combination, this three-bedroom Period town house is just yards from the town centre facilities, along a quiet no-through road with on-street parking. There is a long rear garden including a seating area adjoining the River Lud, and a good size garden store. NO CHAIN. Directions
From St. James' church proceed a few yards along Upgate and turn left along Little Eastgate. Follow the road to the junction with Eastgate and then bear left along the one-way system through the town centre and at the small junction continue as far as the two mini roundabouts. Carry straight on at the first, turn left at the second along Ramsgate and Alexandra Road is then the first turning on the right. The house will be found after the small S-bend on the left side. The Property
Dating back to around 1900 and positioned within the central Conservation Area of Louth, this surprisingly spacious town house has solid engineering brick walls beneath a pitched timber roof structure covered in natural slate. The property has a gas central heating system by a combination boiler and uPVC double-glazed windows, those on the front elevation having been replaced around 2011. There is also a cast iron log-burning stove to the feature fireplace in the sitting room which rapidly warms the house during winter.
There is a garden of excellent size to the rear with steps down from the house, a useful timber and solid-built store, lawned and seating areas with established shrubs and the far area forms a seating area directly adjacent to the River Lud.
The accommodation provides a lifestyle which combines traditional character with modern amenities and in particular, an impressive modern fitted kitchen, partially extending into a glass-roofed wing and a modern bathroom with P-shaped bath and shower fittings. Accommodation
