Beyond the impressive façade of this double fronted mid-Victorian statement house Fine and Country are delighted to present a five bedroom family home that epitomises contemporary elegance and style.

Dating originally from 1890 and built for the respected local solicitor Mr James Whiteley Wilkin (founder of Wilkin Chapman law firm) and latterly lived in by the late shipping tycoon Mr John Ross MBE the owner of Ross Foods.

Langcliffe House is situated close to People’s Park in the town’s most sought after residential area and only a few minutes’ walk from all the facilities of central Grimsby and also to two private schools of St James and St Martin’s on nearby Bargate.

One of Langcliffe House’s many principal features is the stunning central reception hall with its return staircase which is flooded with natural light from the large arched window on the half landing. The hall itself is flanked by twin bay fronted reception rooms which perfectly reflect the marriage of modern and traditional living. The principal dual aspect lounge is the marque of modern chic and the large dining room is an ideal space for more formal family celebrations and both rooms are harmoniously linked by matching fireplaces.

Without doubt the social heart of the home is the stunning breakfast kitchen and family room with its rear bay enjoying views across the grounds and its side bay having deep window seats for easy relaxed conversation. The kitchen is lavishly appointed by an extensive range of bespoke hand painted cream units, by Four Woods Ltd of Louth, which house the integrated refrigerator and separate freezer. There is a further range of eight units at eye level with ‘egg and dart’ frieze cornicing, a stunning central island with granite work surfacing to include; one and a half-bowl Franke sink unit with flexible mixer tap, built-in dishwasher and touch control electric-opening curving timber fronted drawers to one side and breakfast bar. To the side aspect there is a deep leaded bay window with window seats and travertine tiled floor throughout.

The ground floor is complemented by a third large reception room currently used as a play room. A cloakroom and large utility room which gives access via a security keypad to the four roomed cellar under the footprint of the house which allows scope for many uses besides storage due to the 6-foot head-height.

There is further opportunity to contribute to the history of this delightful home on the remaining two storeys.  The first floor currently contains four bedrooms together with a period style family bathroom however there is also scope to complete the part-finished en-suite to your own taste.  The fifth bedroom sits on the second floor and is accompanied by a further part-finished bathroom.
Discretely situated beyond double electric gates and screened by mature shrubs, Langcliffe House occupies grounds with recently established lawns and areas prepared for the new owners to create their own planting scheme.  The property is completed by secure reception parking leading to a detached brick double garage and a recreational swimming pool with timber pavilion.
Langcliffe House is a home of stature and style which allows for further enhancement.
