No 5 occupies arguably one of the largest gardens along this sought after residential location overlooking Peoples Park and is within reasonable walking distance of the town centre. Set within extensive grounds approaching two thirds of an acre the gardens are best viewed from the rear, which are an absolute joy for the enthusiastic gardener. Resembling a private park, the garden has a profusion of colour and its magnificent towering trees create the perfect backdrop. Neat bordered lawns sweep around the rear of the home featuring various sheltered small ‘pocket’ gardens interspersed with flower beds, a pond and a tree lined pathway linking a wonderful loggia adjoin the rear sitting room. Whilst occupying a broad frontage the property the property features two front driveways. The main driveway has a crazy paved entrance screened by double gates leading in turn to the single garage with electric door. This area provides a safe and secure parking bay and gives access to the kitchen.

A second driveway is situated on the far southern boundary and a long tree lined driveway leads in turn to a large detached brick garage measuring 20’1 x 18’3 and has a further single garage adjacent complete with electric door. This extra area provides excellent flexible space for a number of uses and is features a brick and fenced boundary ensuring privacy for the present owner.

The property is well located for the facilities of central Grimsby Institute and other colleges and local private schools include St Martins and St James on nearby Bargate. Regular buses serve the area and the railway station and hospital are close by. Home to the same family for over 40 years, Chilham represents a rare opportunity to acquire a most imposing and respectable detached residence in this prestigious location set within wonderful gardens and must be seen to be appreciated.
