Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

***RECENTLY REDUCED*** Believed to date from around 1870, Becklands Stables, as it is now known, was originally built as the grooms bungalow, stables and coach house for The Becklands, a fine Victorian residence situated nearby and home to Grimsby's French born Member of Parliament Mr Henri Josse. Although the main house no longer stands, having being replaced with a more modern home in the 1950s, the grooms cottage and outbuildings remain and in the hands of the current long term owners have been extended and enhanced to create the unique lifestyle home we see today.

Becklands Stables is tucked away off a shared lane which leads south off Waltham Road between the main part of Barnoldby le Beck and Waltham village. The bungalow stands within around 0.75 of an acre of mainly walled garden which has been variously used as a formal garden, paddock, chicken runs etc. The bungalow itself offers great flexibility of use with the accommodation including a central Entrance Hall, a cosy Lounge, a magnificent Snooker Room, a formal Dining Room, a Kitchen equipped with a range of gloss white units and a good size Utility Room. There are potentially four Bedrooms if required (including the Master with its en-suite Shower Room) although one is currently used as a useful Office/Study. A Family Bathroom and separate Toilet serve the additional bedrooms and a particularly notable feature of the property is the superb Leisure/Tub Room accessed via the Master Bedroom suite and complete with a Jazzi endless swim pool and multi jet hot tub/massage spa for relaxing and entertaining.

In the Agents opinion the significant range of outbuildings will for many people be key to their decision to purchase. With workshops, stables, a tack room, garaging and a 54'0 long first floor haystore and other stores this area of the property offers so much potential subject to obtaining any necessary permissions. Options possibly may include the creation of additional living accommodation, conversion to holiday lettings, a base for a business perhaps or even a split to create a separate dwelling - or they can just continue to be enjoyed as great ancillary space as at present for hobbies, livery and related equestrian needs.

An interesting option is the chance to acquire an 8 acre paddock complete with an open fronted barn situated close to Becklands Stables and owned by the same vendors. Anyone interested in this additional land should contact our office to discuss its availability and price.

The village of Waltham with its excellent range of shopping facilities and popular schools is only a short drive or a reasonable walk away to the eastern side. Barnoldby le Beck benefits from a lovely village pub, The Ship Inn, which is equally popular with locals and those from further afield.

Only a full viewing of Becklands Stables will allow a prospective purchaser to appreciate just what it offers in terms of the living accommodation, the outbuildings and the walled grounds. The rural setting is an absolute delight yet the facilities of Waltham and nearby Grimsby avoid any sense of isolation or remoteness. A wonderful and unique lifestyle home. EPC Rating - E
