A surprisingly spacious, detached family house full of individual personality and positioned in an established residential area of Louth market town with a sunny rear garden enjoying a sylvan backdrop, a driveway at the front providing off-street parking and the accommodation features an exceptional open plan kitchen, living and dining room with wide, bi-folding doors onto a large deck ideal for entertaining. Directions
From St. James' church travel south for a short distance along Upgate and turn left onto Mercer Row. Follow the road through the town centre as far as the two mini roundabouts and at the second of these, turn left along Ramsgate. At the next mini roundabout take the second exit along Ramsgate Road and then turn second left into Victoria Road. The house will be found after a short distance on the left side. The Property
We believe that this individual detached family home may date back to the 1930's. The property has mainly rendered external walls on a brick plinth with decorative brick exposed corner quoins beneath pitched timber roof structures covered in concrete tiles.
There is a feature corner window projecting at ground level, mirrored by a matching inset window over and there are two feature V-shaped oriel bow windows to the side elevation in the living/dining kitchen.
Heating is provided by a modern gas central heating system with condensing boiler and the majority of the windows are uPVC double-glazed. Also, there is a fireplace with open grate in the sitting room and in addition to the modern cooking appliances there is a handsome mint green Rayburn multifuel cooking range.
The house also features a superb master bedroom of exceptional size and the overall floor area of this property far exceeds the average space within a three-bedroomed home.
The rear garden is a particular feature and includes a spacious raised timber deck which is level with the floor of the living/dining-kitchen through wide, bi-folding glazed doors and has steps down to a mature garden beyond with summer house and garden shed. The backdrop of mature trees gives the rear garden a rural feel which belies its setting within the town. Accommodation
