From St James' church in the centre of Louth, travel north along Bridge Street for a short distance and this soon becomes Grimsby Road as the road rises. Very soon look for the first left turning into St. Mary's Lane and after taking this turn look for the house standing well back from the road on the right.
Alternatively, on foot from the church after crossing the river on Bridge Street, turn left into the small car park , walk into the park area at the top of the slope and then keep to the right side of the park, until the steps which lead down to St Marys Lane. The house is a short way to the right on the opposite side of the road. The Property
Completed around the end of 2015 and Architect Stage approved, this unique residential property blends beautifully into its mature tree-lined grounds. Constructed by local highly respected builders Messrs Grantham Bros. of Louth, the house has a glue-lam timber frame on a piled and ring-beamed foundation, brick faced walls of "English Bond" appearance, and a substantial slate roof on a timber framed King-Post trussed structure with boarding under the felt and battens.
Heating is provided by a gas central heating system with conventional radiators to the ground floor accommodation and under-floor heating through the first floor living area with digital zone controllers together with wall controls for ventilation fans in a number of rooms. There is a security alarm system and the rooms are flooded with light, featuring some amazing double-glazed panels from floor level, contrasting window style and fitted louvre blinds to the principle glazed areas.
