Property description

A rare opportunity in this especially sought-after residential area of Louth - an individual garden building plot in an elevated position, with planning permission for a spacious individual house with car port, garage, 8.8m vaulted lounge, 3 or 4 bedrooms (two with ensuite dressing and bath or shower rooms), family bathroom and ground floor shower room. There is potential to create an alternative room layout to suit the purchaser and possibly via an application for non-material amendments. 

Directions From St James' Church, travel north along Bridge Street into Grimsby Road and then take the first left turn along St. Mary's Lane. Carry on for some distance and take the right turn up the narrow lane just after number 46 (see the location plan adjacent) which leads to further properties on St. Mary's Lane, positioned along the hillside. The building plot will be accessed from this lane via a right of way over the area shown blue on the location plan. 

Location Louth is positioned on the eastern fringes of the Lincolnshire Wolds with easy access by car or on foot across the rolling hills. There are popular, busy markets three times each week and many local seasonal and specialist events take place throughout the year. The central Conservation Area features some interesting Period properties surrounding the magnificent spire of St James church in the centre. Louth is especially admired for the many independent shops and traders together with a fine choice of cafes, restaurants, wine bars and pubs with a current trend towards a continental style, street café environment.

There are highly regarded primary schools and academies including the King Edward VI Grammar school. The Meridian Sports and Swimming Complex has been built in recent years complementing the London Road Sports Grounds and Hall, whilst further sporting facilities include a tennis academy, bowls, football club, golf club and the Kenwick Park Leisure Centre also with swimming pool, golf course and an equestrian centre.

Louth has a thriving theatre, a cinema and attractive parks on the west side of town in Hubbard's Hills and Westgate Fields. The coast is about 10 miles away from Louth at its nearest point and the area around Louth has many fine country walks and bridleways. Grimsby is approximately 16 miles to the north whilst Lincoln is some 25 miles to the south-west.  

The Plot The plot is positioned in a highly regarded residential area of Louth to the west of the town centre and presently forms part of the very deep garden of 42 St. Mary's Lane with a "pavilion style" outbuilding, which requires demolition prior to the construction works.

The plot has an approximate depth of 25.2m, and a width varying from 21.6m to 22m (based upon on-site measurements to apparent boundaries) - the dimensions should be checked against the boundaries indicated by the sale contract plan. The sellers will convey a legal right of way with or without vehicles as they presently enjoy to number 42 and rights to lay services beneath the driveway in so far as they are able to do so subject to minimal disturbance. The private shared driveway will be subject to shared maintenance costs. 

The Proposed Dwelling The proposed house is of unusual and interesting design, having an overall L-shaped configuration orientated to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun in particular.

The first-floor accommodation extends across part of the building as the exceptionally spacious lounge (8.8m x 5.5m) has a vaulted ceiling and three pairs of French doors onto a veranda. The design presently incorporates a car port as well as a garage, but the interior room layout may be readily revised to create a more open plan kitchen/living room/dining room area incorporating the car port, subject to approval from the local planning authority.
