Full description

Extensively yet sympathetically renovated, retaining many of the noteworthy original features, this mid-19th Century Victorian Farmhouse is situated on the elevated outskirts of Louth, offering one acre of private and mature grounds plus the most superb views over the desirable market town and the Wolds, across to the coast.
Benefitting from versatile spacious family living accommodation spread over three floors to include: four double bedrooms with en-suites, two further double bedrooms, two family bathrooms (one to ground floor) and four reception rooms. Fully double glazed with oil fired central heating, this much loved family home is offered with no upper chain after 50 years of ownership due to a need to downsize.

Location - The property is situated approx one mile south of Louth, adjacent to the London Road which provides good road networks to the A16 bypasses. The property is less than 30 mins. drive from the rail link at Market Rasen and 40 mins drive from Humberside International Airport and 45 mins from the motorway system.
Louth itself is a popular market town and is often known as the capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds. It offers a range of shops, banking and schooling facilities to include primary schools, secondary schools and King Edward VI Grammar School. The skyline is dominated by St. James' church and also has the delightful people's park known as Westgate Fields and Hubbards Hills on the western side of town.
The port of Grimsby, the Humber Bank, the Lincolnshire Wolds, the East Coast and the M180 motorway link are within commuting distance.
