Constructed around 1983, this detached family residence has brick-faced principal walls beneath pitched timber roof structures covered in concrete tiles. Heating is provided by a mains gas-fired central heating system and there is a feature fireplace with open grate in the lounge.

The property stands in a superb plot and is approached over a long, sweeping in/out gravel driveway providing ample parking space before the house and giving access to the garages. The driveway encloses a centre lawn with shrubbery and there are side lawns with ornamental trees all set behind front hornbeam hedges on the boundary.
Immediately at the rear of the house there is a large crazy-paved patio which enjoys the sun throughout the day with inset heathers and bedding plants, a brick-lined border, slate bed with large rocks and pathway at the side to the snooker room.
The entrance drive continues from the front of the house between the detached garage and the main house before extending across the full width of the plot at the rear of the house, leading eventually to the games/snooker room.
Beyond this rear driveway there is a superb-size garden principally laid to lawn with a large wildlife pond towards the rear, the bank of solar photovoltaic panels to the left side and lawned banks around the pond with ornamental trees, shrubs and bushes. The pond is shaped around a projecting lawn upon which there is a rotating timber log cabin/summer house with light and power supply, and which can follow the sun, culminating in the sunset over the water.
Beyond the formal garden there is a low hedge and the land at the rear presently forms part of a larger field. NB the purchaser will be required to erect a new boundary fence where the land is open to the adjoining field of timber post and rail type within a set time period. The land provides the potential for equestrian, horticultural or hobby farm use or possibly in association with leisure activities, subject to obtaining planning consent.
There is a dyke between the formal garden and land but access from the rear left corner of the garden over a grassed area into the paddock. A temporary right of way over the land can be granted from the end of the roadway to the north until the buyer has formed a driveway into the paddock. NB
we are advised that the dyke belongs to the Lindsey Marsh Drainage board and they will retain an access over the adjacent land to the dyke for maintenance and clearing purposes Location
