Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated on the corner of Weelsby Road and Recto Avenue, Atherstone is an excellent detached house built in the 1930's and possessing many features so typical of this highly regarded period of 20th century architecture. The current owners have, during the last few years, undertaken a major programme of updating to create a fine home which really must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

The gas centrally heated and mainly double glazed accommodation is enhanced by many original features including quality wooden block floors in several rooms, the authentic oak panelling in the Reception Hall and upstairs on the landing, and the decorative mouldings which adorn certain ceilings. There are some original leaded windows and an interesting point to note is the fine canopy built on the western side of the house to create a sheltered porch area above the door which leads out from the kitchen.

Principal features of the accommodation include the welcoming Reception Hall which is 'L' shaped and particularly spacious, the front Lounge with its original 1930's tiled fireplace and the side Sitting Room which is presented in a more contemporary style with provision for the installation of a wood burning stove if so desired. The Kitchen is appointed with a range of classic cream cabinets and butchers block worktops and there is a very useful walk-in pantry. Atherstone's original garage has been converted by the present owners to create a Dining Room with its tiled floor and French doors to the garden. This room could be used as a Family/Leisure Room if required and a useful Cloakroom completes the picture of the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor there are three double Bedrooms plus a small occasional fourth bedroom which is perhaps better suited for use as a Study or Box Room. The main front Bedroom is equipped with a range of white wardrobes and there is a built-in wardrobe/cupboard in the third Bedroom. The Bathroom has been transformed by the installation of a white suite including a Victorian style roll edge bath and a more contemporary themed curved glass shower cubicle. The black and white tiling works so well with the choice of fittings and the bathroom is undoubtedly a strong feature of the property.

The house stands within gardens which are stocked with a profusion of established shrubs and plants for year round colour and a variety of textures and hues. Minimal maintenance has been the goal which has driven the garden projects and there is a block paved sitting area and separate parking area which is accessed through double gates from Recto Avenue.

The property is ideally located for easy access to both central Grimsby and the resort of Cleethorpes and regular buses serve the area.

All in all this is a fine property of impeccable heritage and discerning purchasers seeking a home of understated quality are advised to view without delay. EPC Rating - F
