4 bedroom detached house for saleSCARTHO ROAD, GRIMSBY
Situated on Scartho Road and set within wonderfully mature gardens Lockington House is an impressive detached house which offers for more accommodation than one might initially suspect. Substantially extended at the rear and remodelled in more recent years to create the open plan living space so popular with today’s buyers this really is a home which should be viewed to be fully appreciated.
The property was built in 1928 and its classic design includes Tudor influences and a central gabled projection to the front elevation, Principal features of the accommodation include the welcoming Reception Hall with a wood block floor and spelled balustrade staircase, a stylish Cloakroom and the front Sitting Room with a beige tiled fireplace and double doors linking to the Dining/Garden Room. Three originally separate rooms have now been linked by the removal of their adjoining walls and the resulting space now forms an ‘L’ shape including a superb 26’4 Living Room and an almost square Dining Area. This area in turn links to the very impressive Kitchen which is comprehensively appointed with a host of antique cream wall and base cabinets, speckled granite worksurfaces and a Rosières Bocuse professional standard range cooker. A central island unit incorporates a breakfast bar overhang and two doors lead outside into the garden. A useful walk-in Utility area leads off the Dining Area and includes provision for appliances.

The second largest bedroom is fitted with a range of white wardrobes whilst the other two both feature washbasins. The spacious Family Bathroom is breath-taking with a white suite including a rare circular whirlpool bath and an oversize quadrant shower cubicle. The house has the benefit of gas central heating, uPVC framed double glazing and a security alarm system for peace of mind.

A block paved in and out driveway allows easy access to the road and substantial shrubs and trees in the front garden provide a partial privacy screen for the property.
