A truly exceptional and immaculate home just a short walk from the town centre and grammar school, this detached, individual 3 / 4 bedroom house stands in the prime Highfields residential area of Louth and has been transformed by a comprehensive refurbishment scheme with a superb, high-quality specification into a fabulous turn-key lifestyle opportunity. Directions
From St. James' Church travel south along Upgate and carry straight on at the traffic lights up the hill. Take the second right turning into Meridian View and follow the road until Bluestone Rise branches off to the right. The property will then be found on the left side.
Meridian View is so called as the Prime Meridian runs through the centre of Louth market town. The name Bluestone Rise relates to the blue stones which were relocated from Northern Britain to the Lincolnshire area during the ice age by glaciers - an example can be seen outside Louth Museum and the scenic Bluestone Heath Road stretches across the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Location
Louth is positioned on the eastern fringes of the Lincolnshire Wolds with easy access by car or on foot across the rolling hills. There are popular, busy markets three times each week and many local seasonal and specialist events take place throughout the year.
Louth is especially admired for the many independent shops and traders together with a fine choice of cafes, restaurants, wine bars and pubs with a current trend towards a continental style, street café environment.
There are highly regarded primary schools and academies including the King Edward VI Grammar, which is just a short walk from the property. The Meridian Sports and Swimming Complex has been built in recent years complementing the London Road Sports Grounds and Hall, a tennis academy, bowls, football club, golf club and the Kenwick Park Leisure Centre also with swimming pool, golf course and an equestrian centre.
Louth has a thriving theatre, a cinema and attractive parks on the west side of town in Hubbard's Hills and Westgate Fields.
The coast is about 10 miles away from Louth at its nearest point and the area around Louth has many fine country walks and bridleways. Grimsby is approximately 16 miles to the north whilst Lincoln is some 25 miles to the south-west. The Property
We understand that the property was constructed in 1994 with brick-faced cavity walls beneath a concrete tiled roof.
The house has a distinctive cottage style with a high-pitched roof and features a two-storey projecting gable at the rear with Juliet balcony, single-storey projecting gables to the front and side elevations and tile-hung, pitched roof dormer windows to the front and rear roof slopes.
The windows and external doors are framed in mahogany style uPVC and double-glazed panes and mahogany-effect, uPVC double-glazed, mainly square leaded panes. There are tilt and slide double-glazed patio doors from the lounge and dining room onto the patios and garden at the rear.
The external joinery to the eaves is finished in contemporary grey tones and the rainwater gutters and downpipes have been renewed in complementary grey.
The detached garage has been constructed to complement the house in brick and block with a pitched timber roof structure covered in concrete tiles, double glazed side window and pedestrian door.
The property has been subjected to a comprehensive refurbishment scheme within the last two years and heating is now provided by a newly installed Mitsubishi air source system and Mitsubishi smart hot water tank located in the roof void. The radiators have been renewed and several of these are finished in "anthracite grey".
The heating is controlled by a Nest wi-fi enabled system whereby versatile, remote control via a mobile phone app is possible. There are also Nest smoke alarm/carbon monoxide alarms.
The water supply has a full water softening system and instant hot or cold water is "on tap" quite literally, by virtue of the impressive, Quooker tap in the kitchen.
Both the kitchen and utility room have been refitted in complementary style with units having slate-grey painted solid wood doors and integrated appliances, together with impressive Statuario Bianco quartz work surfaces and upstands. There is an integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer, a new Haier French-style fridge freezer, a built-in oven and ceramic induction hob with cooker hood over.
The family bathroom, shower room and en suite wet room have all been refitted to a high standard to include Grohe WC's with concealed cisterns; the wet room has a rainfall shower and flexible hand set.
Flooring is particularly important combining quality carpets with extensive porcelain oak plank tiling together with porcelain floor and wall tiles to the bath/shower rooms. The master bedroom features a long range of wardrobes in subtle grey tones and the guest bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling and inward-opening French doors to a Juliet balcony with views across the western outskirts of Louth.
The property features new LED warm white spotlight downlighters to the ceilings and there is a new consumer unit in metal cabinet.
Externally, a superb quality cobble-paved driveway is laid diagonally with straight borders and provides extensive parking and turning space to the side and the front of the house, whilst leading to the good-sized single garage. The well-maintained gardens are beautifully orientated for the sun and the front windows, particularly on the first floor, present far-reaching views across the town to the spire of St. James' Church and beyond.
