Situation The property stands in a quiet residential area of Louth, a popular market town known as the Capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds and positioned on the eastern fringe of this area of outstanding natural beauty. There are 3 markets each week and the town has many individual shops, highly regarded primary, secondary and grammar schools, many cafes, bars and restaurants. Grimsby is approximately 16 miles to the north whilst Lincoln is some 25 miles to the southwest. 

The Property Time House is positioned at the end of a small secluded and tree-lined private lane serving just 6 period homes and is attached to properties at the rear which were very probably former wings and outbuildings of the original house (see photo on last page) When viewing the property, turn through the wrought iron hand gate onto the stone terrace leading to the handsome pillared portico with steps up to the front door. The house overlooks its own charming walled gardens which are on the south side in front of the main elevation with sweeping, mature borders.

This elegant and versatile 4/5 bedroom home dates back to the 1840s and has recently been superbly re-styled combining fashionable neutral colour schemes (mainly White Mist, Chantilly and Hints of Grey) with many period features including the restored original pine floorboards. The house faces south-west with light flooding the front reception rooms and bedrooms. On the lower ground floor a rear hallway has independent access from outside and doorways to the spacious family dining-kitchen, beamed dining room and a guest wing with bedroom and en-suite bathroom or potentially a home office if preferred. A second family bathroom and separate toilet have only recently been refitted in white.
