About this property

  • An impressive detached family home situated in a generous plot with attractive rural views. The property has very generous internal proportions making it feel bright and airy, with good room sizes and versatility making it the ideal home for busy family life. Highlights to the accommodation include the hallway with its feature staircase, the very good size reception space and the family kitchen. Though the accommodation has been well maintained, there is also potential for extension or remodeling (subject to obtaining the necessary consents), with previous extensions including the garage and the addition of a utility room.

    The generous accommodation is set across two floors and extends to more than 2700 sq ft. The property is entered via a cloakroom which leads through to a wide entrance hallway around which the ground floor rooms are arranged, including a triple aspect sitting room of over 29ft, a formal dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. An open archway leads from the kitchen to a handy utility room which in turn provides direct internal access to the garage, while a study and shower room complete the ground floor. A striking dark wood staircase leads to the first floor, where there are five well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom which open from the central landing. The principal bedroom benefits from its own dressing room and leads through to a bathroom.

    The property is situated within a very pleasant plot with country views to the front and rear. The house is approached over a good size gravel driveway providing ample private off-road parking, with further parking available in the integrated single garage. There is a small front garden laid to lawn and dotted with trees, with the majority of the garden situated to the rear, which is south west-facing. This is an excellent size for entertaining and for children, with an Indian sandstone patio adjoining the rear of the house and a large lawn. Mature trees and hedging provides a high degree of privacy while a greenhouse and vegetable patch at the rear is ideal for home growing. The property also benefits from solar panels which are owned outright.

This is a superb family home on the outskirts of Louth and I especially like the grand hallway in the heart of the home
