Positioned on a small lane in the heart of the village, this individual building plot has detailed planning permission with conditions approved, footings built, concrete base poured and building control approval to date. The planned design is for a modern detached cottage combining character and modern efficiency, with exceptionally spacious open plan living accommodation, 3 double bedrooms, family bathroom and ensuite shower room. Garden to front and side together with a double-width driveway and patio area.
From Louth take the A16 road north and continue to the far side of Utterby village, continue past the staggered crossroads and then take the right turn to Fulstow. Go through the steam railway crossing and follow the lane to the crossroads. Keep ahead at the crossroads onto Main Street and continue until the plot is found on the left side. The New House
The house has been designed to have brick faced and rendered, insulated cavity walls under pitched, tiled roofs incorporating a projecting two-storey gable wing and two pitched roof dormers to the main east-facing elevation. Two further pitched roof dormers are indicated on the opposite west elevation.
It is anticipated that the house will have uPVC framed double=glazed windows and French doors, composite main and secondary external doors and an efficient modern central heating system, possibly incorporating underfloor heating if the buyer so chooses.
The property has attractive elevations which complement the variety of period properties along the lane and the interior has been planned to suit modern tastes for spacious open plan living and well-proportioned bedrooms. Accommodation
(Approximate room dimensions have been scaled on-screen from the approved architect's drawings and are therefore approximate) Ground Floor
Main Entrance with tiled Canopy Porch on timber brackets and composite front door with double-glazed pane into the: Entrance Lobby
With double doors to a utility and storage cupboard designed for stacking a washing machine and tumble dryer with space adjacent for shelving. This lobby area is open into the: Living/Kitchen
Reception and Dining area which in turn is fully open plan with the Kitchen and Lounge Areas having an overall length of 10.9m (35ft 9) x a main width of 3.9m (12ft 10) reducing in the kitchen area and extending to a maximum of 5.6m (18ft 5) in the lobby area. This superb, spacious living space is bright and airy with three windows on the west elevation, two windows on the east elevation, a double south window in the kitchen area and French doors onto the front garden area.
The return staircase leads off to the first floor with kite-winder steps having a window above on the side elevation. There is space beneath to form a storage cupboard or leave this area open. The staircase would suit an oak and glazed balustrade/screen or spindles.
The kitchen is designed for a long run of base and wall units to the west wall, a return run of base units along the south wall and possibilities for a u-shaped configuration or to extend a peninsular range with or without a breakfast bar, into the dining area. This range would provide ample scope to integrate cooking appliances, dishwasher and refrigerator or lends itself to an American style fridge freezer at the end of the longer range of units. A sink unit would probably be positioned under the double south window.
The living area can also be approached from the internal doorway of an: Enclosed Entrance Lobby
with composite door complementing the main entrance, from the driveway, and a further tiled porch above is possible. A door from this lobby opens into a: Cloakroom/WC
to be fitted with a low-level WC and bracket wash basin. Window to the east elevation. First Floor Landing
3.5m (11ft 6) x 2m (6ft 6) inc. stairwell. An L-shaped Landing with balustrade or oak and glazed screen extending from the stairs to create a gallery, and natural light from the window over the staircase. A trap access to the roof void would probably be located here. Doors lead off to the three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Master Bedroom
4.8m (15ft 8) x 3.6m (11ft 10) overall, including the ensuite Shower Room. This double bedroom is L-shaped around the shower room and is dual-aspect having a gable front window and east facing side window for morning sunshine. The shape of the room suggests that a double wardrobe could be built to the right of the door opening.
. Ensuite Shower Room
The shower room has a dormer window and is designed for a shower cubicle, low-level WC and pedestal or vanity wash basin Bedroom 2 -
3.7m (12ft 2) x 2.65m (8ft 9) A double bedroom with a south gable window which will also catch the morning sun. Space for wardrobes. Bedroom 3 -

The property will have vehicular and pedestrian right of way over the adjoining driveway which is owned by and gives access to the Wendy House, a cottage positioned well back, at the rear. Double width Driveway
which could be used entirely for parking or part paved as a patio area with borders. Planning and Building Control

Fulstow has a public house, called the Cross-Keys, a Grade 2 Listed church dedicated to St Lawrence, a village hall for community functions and a primary school known as the Fulstow Academy.
Louth has three markets each week and many individual shops, a cinema, theatre, recent sports and swimming centre, golf club, tennis academy, athletics and football grounds, and a Leisure Centre on the outskirts at Kenwick Park which includes further golf course and an equestrian centre. The Wolds and Coast provide contrasting natural retreats and reserves. Grimsby is the main business centre in the area and Fulstow is within easy commuting distance of industrial concerns along the south banks of the Humber Estuary, and for some the Humber Bridge brings the North Bank into acceptable reach.
