Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Delightfully located towards the western end of Augusta Street this unique detached residence is set within stunning gardens and provides very flexible accommodation which must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Believed to date from mid 1960s the property has been enhanced and extended over subsequent years to create a wonderful home with several particularly spacious ground floor rooms and the options to utilise bedrooms at both ground and first floor levels.

Principal features of the accommodation include the welcoming 'L' shaped Reception Hall from where the spindle balustrade staircase leads to the first floor, the magnificent Lounge with its centrally positioned Adam style fireplace and French door to the terrace and the 25'6 Living/Dining Room, again with a superb traditional firesurround. There is a rear Sun Room with two sets of patio doors opening to the garden whilst the Breakfast Kitchen is comprehensively equipped with a range of antique cream cabinets, Corian worksurfaces and a host of built in appliances.

The largest bedroom within the property is located on the ground floor and features built in wardrobes and a dresser. This room has been used as a daytime room as an alternative and is served by the ground floor Bathroom with its classic suite including a whirlpool bath and a wash stand basin.

At first floor level there are three good size bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes. There is a prestige quality Shower Room complete with a Lefroy Brooks shower, a semi recessed handbasin and a w.c. and the first floor landing itself also provides useful space.

The house has the benefit of gas central heating (with a new boiler installed in 2016) double glazing and a security alarm system and it is available with immediate vacant possession.

The gardens are an absolute delight and due to the property's position on the slip road which leads off Augusta Street are almost as large at the front as at the rear. The grounds are mature and well stocked with a diverse variety of shrubs and plants all cleverly planted to create screened areas and privacy. The long driveway at the front provides space for parking several vehicles in addition to the space within the Double Garage whilst the rear garden includes a lovely paved terrace with ornate railings. There is an externally accessed Utility Room (close to the Kitchen) and a hexagonal arbour is a delightful feature of the rear garden.

The facilities of Grimsby Town Centre are within walking distance and the educational establishments on Bargate are particularly convenient. Regular buses serve the general area.
