Grimoldby is a popular country village approximately five miles from the market town of Louth and in conjunction with the neighbouring village of Manby, there are local facilities including a primary school, post office/store, mini supermarket, restaurant and two churches. Louth has a wider range of amenities, including many individual shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, together with secondary schools including the King Edward VI grammar school. On the outskirts of Louth is the Kenwick Park leisure complex with equestrian centre and Grimoldby is about five miles from the coast, where day passes can be obtained to hack along the beaches for miles. The area also has a network of bridleways from Louth to the coast and within the Wolds to the west.

This garden land now has the benefit of outline Planning Permission (Ref; N/067/01139/20) for the erection of four dwellings, comprising four detached cottage style homes with double garages. Full details of the planning consent and all relevant plans can be found on the East Lindsey Council's website: Consent was given in September 2020. The precise wording of the Planning Decision Notice and the relevant conditions should be considered in detail by a prospective purchaser. The outline planning allows the purchaser to finalise the reserved matters of the development including landscaping, scale, design and specification of the homes to their taste. The proposed layout and retained woodland is shown on the below plans.

The site currently largely populated by woodland, measures to a total approximate size of 1.3 acres (STS) including access affording very generous plots allowing for sizeable homes to be built along with associated garaging. In order to construct the homes some woodland clearance will be required by the purchaser in accordance with the tree retention plan mentioned in condition 8 of the planning.

The site nestled within the village will retain a private and executive style location, down a long private drive with no nearby roads and neighbouring property, having open Greenland and gardens either side. An attractive pond on the site (to be retained) provides a superb amenity and wildlife feature.

The site is accessed directly from Manby Middlegate, with the driveway passing neighbouring houses before opening into the site to the rear. The driveway is to be constructed by the buyer, however the existing structures currently on the access drive including a garage and workshop will be removed by the current vendor by or after exchange of contracts.

The purchaser is to satisfy themselves as to the exact position and accessibility of nearby mains services and will be required to make their own connections. BDLD CMCL
