Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating from 1937 and displaying so many architectural art deco characteristics, Ryehill is a rather special detached residence believed to have been originally constructed for one of the directors of the renowned Cleethorpes building company, Wilkinson and Houghton Ltd. Much of the charm of the property has been retained through to the present day and discerning purchasers are sure to appreciate the authentic elements of this elegant well located home.

The house stands proudly on the corner of Cromwell Road and Howlett Road and principal features include the quadrant shaped Entrance Lobby, the breathtaking wood panelled Reception Hall with a mezzanine gallery Landing above and the main Lounge with French doors opening into the rear garden. A grand Drawing Room features a classic mahogany fire surround and semi circular front bay and in addition there is a combined Sitting/Dining Room and a delightful Conservatory. The Dining Kitchen is comprehensively equipped with chestnut units, pale grey worksurfaces and Neff appliances and the picture of the ground floor accommodation is completed by a Utility Room, a useful Cloakroom and a large Study/Office.

At first floor level the central Landing is particularly substantial and provides access to all four double bedrooms, three with double aspect windows for maximum natural light. One of the bedrooms features a concealed vanity handbasin (an early forerunner to en-suite facilities!) and there is a Bathroom complete with a sunken bath, a quadrant shower and original tiling. There is a separate Toilet (with a w.c. in the main bathroom also) and a pull down ladder gives access to the spacious Loft/Hobby Room with four skylight windows and plenty of storage.

Ryehill benefits from gas central heating, uPVC framed double glazing and a security alarm system and is adjoined by an excellent size Garage with sliding doors and internal access to the house itself. The gardens are wonderfully mature with established shrubs and trees providing screened privacy at the front, a wider than expected side garden and a superb rear garden including a rectangular lawn, a sunken paved area and pond and beds and borders replete with established shrubs, plants and flowers.

The facilities of the popular resort of Cleethorpes are within easy reach with the sea front just a few hundred metres away at the eastern end of Cromwell Road. Shopping facilities, bars and restaurants are located on St Peters Avenue and the Kingsway and regular buses serve the general area.

Prospective purchasers seeking a property that is a little different would be well advised to visit Ryehill. From its wooden shingle clad first floor front elevation through to its castellated parapets and basketwork pattern lintels there is always something to catch the eye and set it apart from its neighbours. A rare opportunity indeed! EPC Rating - E
