The Property
This property offers flexibility in as much as it can be a home and a income, a home for two families or a business having the benefit of three phase electricity and two phone lines installed with excellent broadband service. This is a detached Swedish style chalet house situated in a secluded location with many opportunities of development while being within easy reach of local amenities.

Hastings Drive is a cul de sac, an immaculate private development about 20 years old while being quiet, free from noise and through traffic.

The village is on a level ground and has a comprehensive range of shops, these include the following: Post Office, high class butcher, pet shop, dog grooming parlour, Co-Op supermarket, greengrocer and three hairdressers.There is also a highly regarded fish and chip shop, pizza takeaway and an upmarket Chinese restaurant. There is also a excellent Primary School in the village and four local secondary schools within 6 miles (school transport is available to all of them from the market square). the village also has four period inns and two antique shops.

Fairlight is a three or four bedroomed chalet style house built to a Swedish design approximately 20 years ago. From the rear (this is the main face of the building) the house resembles a Swiss Chalet with a balcony and extensive views over miles of open farm landed.

The quality is high due to being built with expensive engineering bricks which are very hard and non porous with a surface that will not weather. they also remove any risk of rising damp or weather penetration. The timbers used in its construction are huge and provide strength rarely found in an English house. The foundations are equally substantial, its reinforced concrete base is mounted on concrete piles going down 5 meters. The walls are "cavity" packed with rock wool and the whole house is well insulated. the windows are mahogany framed and double glazed.

Surrounding Area
Wainfeet-All-Saints is a ancient port and market town on the east coast of the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A52 road, geographically 5 miles south-west of Skegness and 14 miles north-east of Boston.

Although Wainfleet is technically a town, having a market square, it is really a village in character. It is perhaps best known as being the home of "Batemans", a picturesque vintage brewery. This quaint brewery looks as if it belongs more to the seventeenth century. the brewery attracts tourists and real ale enthusiasts from far and wide. this well preserved relic of the past sits on the banks of the river Steeping, it is said they still brew more than one hundred different beers "that all work quite nicely"!

Realising what a great attraction the brewery has become, the owners now provide a guided tour of the brewery. the owners have also built a restaurant for visitors and tourists, part of which is set in the base of an ancient windmill tower. This provides excellent traditional local food. there are literally dozens of different beers to be sampled in their bar. Whilst still being able to focus clearly there is a museum of brewing memorabilia to browse through. Three minutes away from the brewery is the railway station. This provides a regular service between Skegness, Boston and Nottingham. This service also connects to the fast East coast main line to London and the North via Grantham.

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve is only 3.6 miles away from Skegness. Also the town is close to the Lincolnshire Wolds.

A regular bus service stops in the village square and this is now free to those of us of a pensionable age. the national express coach service to and from London (together with other major centres) also stops in the village, giving a very economical and convenient means of accessing London and other cities.

The town was at the end of the Great Northern Railway until the development of Skegness 6-7 miles East.

The Plot
This home sits in approximately 1/2 acre and is in a very tranquil setting. It is approached via its own superb drive of approx. 50 meters long and 12 meters wide. The drive has been built to "main road" spec, constructed with a deep re-enforced concrete. It has kerbs and "proper" drains all with a farm gate to the road entrance.

On either side of the drive there are lawns and shrubs with two rowan trees and three silver birches, serveral hawthorns, two ornamental pears, a flowering cherry and a fine bay tree. All of the trees are mature and established. There is a small shed/summerhouse and a large single garage. The rear garden is accessed via a large three meter , five bar gate on the side and a gated fence on the other.

The rear garden is mainly laid to grass with a magnificent eucalyptus gum tree and a golden Bramley Apple Tree. There are also seven Norway spruces (Christmas tree), a weeping willow and various shrubs.

There is a good sized paved patio which can be accessed via French doors from the living room and a second set leading off the dining room.

As the property has no restrictions regarding the keeping of animals or farm stock. the rear of the land could be used as a paddock or a small market garden. this area would also make a good sized building plot with full access and services, subject to planning regulations.

There is also a charging point for an electric car.
