An opportunity to acquire a Period cottage with larger than average plot providing potential for extension and outbuildings, (subject to planning permission) and generally requiring a scheme of modernisation and improvement. Directions
From Louth take the Legbourne Road and proceed to the outskirts, take the first exit at the roundabout and then follow the B1200 road for several miles. Carry straight on at the Manby Middlegate traffic lights, proceed through open countryside and to the far end of Saltfleetby village. At the T-junction with the A1031 road turn left and follow the road to Saltfleet. Libra will be found on the right side just a short distance after the small S-bend in the village centre. The Property
The brickwork of this semi-detached cottage suggests that the property may date back beyond the beginning of the 19th century and the principal walls are of solid brick construction beneath a pitched timber roof structure which is now covered in concrete interlocking tiles.
A more recent lean-to extension was constructed at the side, together with an outbuilding providing two general store rooms. The plot is of surprising size with a wide frontage and is remembered as a productive apple orchard in older times. Accommodation

A short distance to the side of the cottage there is a Detached Outbuilding of brick construction separated internally to form two stores and approached through a side door which requires repair/renewal. There are two side windows, and the smallest store has a small window to the opposite side. This building has an electricity supply with consumer unit, power point and light.
Once an orchard, the large plot now requires planting and landscaping but is an excellent size providing the potential to create a large garden and if required, seek planning permission for extensions to the current cottage or construction of additional outbuildings. NB.
The land has been treated by a specialist for an outbreak of Japanese Knotweed. Viewing:
Strictly by prior appointment through the selling agent. Location
