Handsome chocolate box cottage in the heart of Alford.
This charming Georgian thatched cottage was built in 1750 and enjoys a prime position in the heart of Alford, a community market town that sits between the Lincolnshire Wolds and the North Sea with its wide expanses of beaches. The detached house is built in a handsome and imposing style featuring many Georgian architectural details including tall sash windows, original fireplaces and exposed beams which are wonderfully complemented by a traditional country-style décor scheme. The home is attractively presented and has been well maintained by the vendor yet offers fantastic potential for further enhancement and personalisation by the incoming purchaser.
The accommodation is set across two floors and extends to more than 1600 sq ft, with multiple reception rooms and three double bedrooms making it an excellent choice for families. The ground floor is entered onto a double-aspect lounge leading through to a well-sized sitting room with parquet flooring and striking brick fireplace, formal dining room and adjoining kitchen/breakfast room complete with traditional pine wood units. Upstairs there is a principal bedroom which benefits from an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes, two additional doubles with built-in storage and a family bathroom with a large corner bathtub and original exposed brick chimney breast. Outside there is a bright 20ft garden room with stained-glass windows and antique wood-burning stove.
The home is set back from the road behind a good-sized gravel driveway providing off-street parking for two vehicles plus access to a single garage on Commercial Road. To the rear is an attractive garden with a neat level lawn and several gravelled areas perfectly designed for outdoor dining and entertaining, enclosed by a variety of established trees and mature shrubs affording a high degree of seclusion. There are a number of additional workshops and storage areas with light/power.
