The first floor also boasts an impressive split-level Family Bathroom with a corner bath and separate shower cubicle whilst the 21'7 Games Room/Studio Bedroom provides an excellent and flexible living space accessed via the Breakfast Kitchen or Family Bathroom. A further staircase leads from the Landing to the second floor where two further good size double Bedrooms are located, the front bedroom enjoying a particularly enviable position overlooking People's Park.

The property stands within pleasant rectangular shaped gardens accessed via twin wrought iron gates with a block paved driveway providing off-road parking.

Park Drive is ideally located within a short walking distance of Grimsby Town centre with its everyday facilities and local educational establishments are within easy reach including the Grimsby Institute.
