This deceptively spacious home oozes charm and character boasting five reception rooms including lounge with log burner, games room, dining room, a conservatory and sun room overlooking the west facing private gardens.

A smart farm house style kitchen diner and utility complete the ground floor while from the stunning galleried landing are 4 large bedrooms, 2 of which with en suites and a further having a fully glazed gable wall. Externally the extensive grounds incorporate a large driveway with mature gardens leading to double garage and beautifully maintained rear gardens overlooking the beck beyond. 

Directions From Louth take the A16 road north and after the two right turnings to Fotherby, take the next right turn along Ings Lane towards Covenham. Follow the lane to its eventual conclusion and bear left, then follow the lane into Covenham St. Mary. Upon entering the village go past the right turn to Yarburgh and continue round the sharp S-bend but then take the right turn along Newbridge Lane. After a short distance turn left onto Dickens Beck Lane and number 2 will be found towards the end on the left.

Heating is provided by way of an oil-fired boiler with oil storage tank located in rear garden and supplemented by a 4kw log burner situated in the lounge. A security and intruder alarm system is also fitted and to the front are remote electric gates (currently requiring repair with new parts provided). Access to the property is via a shared private lane with four properties in total, which has a shared liability for maintenance and adds to the exclusive and private feel of the setting the house is situated in. Double garage of complementary design to the main dwelling and having a remote electric up and over door.

Location The popular village of Covenham is separated into two areas corresponding to the Grade II Listed churches of St. Bartholomew and St. Mary, the latter located to the south and all set in an area of attractive countryside just to the east of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

The village is set away from the A16 road though within easy reach and thereby ideal for commuting to the market town of Louth, approximately five miles to the south, or the large business centre of Grimsby which is about 11 miles to the north. Covenham has a Grade II Listed restaurant, The Millhouse and to the north of the village is the Covenham Reservoir which appeals to walkers and provides a venue for watersports.

Louth is a bustling market town with a range of individual shops, three markets each week and strong secondary schools including the King Edward VI grammar school, (each with specialist status). The town has a golf course, cinema, theatre, attractive parks, a recently completed sports and swimming complex and the Kenwick Park leisure centre on the outskirts.
