A regal Grade II* listed property with extensive accommodation and a beautiful garden
The Mansion is a magnificent, sprawling Grade II* listed property, with elegant, regal styling, set in a highly desirable position close to the centre of Louth. Thought to date originally from the early 1600s, the house displays handsome red brick elevations outside, with more than 8,500 square feet of accommodation, providing comfortable, luxury living and opportunities for further renovation if desired.
The property provides a stunning balance of stately sophistication and modern style, with original features including wood panelled reception rooms, high ceilings and large sash windows, combining with contemporary fittings and décor that has been granted a great deal of thought and attention.
There are three beautifully appointed reception rooms on the ground floor each of which has its own refined elegance, as well as two kitchens one of which may be used as a utility room. The main kitchen has contemporary units in black, a central island and a dual fuel Aga (by separate negotiation), recessed into a brick-built fireplace.
The first floor has four double bedrooms, including the generous principal bedroom, with its en- suite bathroom. Two of the additional bedrooms are en- suite, and there is also a family bathroom and a separate shower room. The first floor also provides two further large reception rooms, known as the garden rooms as they overlook the garden, with one including French doors opening onto an elevated, south-facing terrace area.
The second floor has extensive further accommodation, which is currently largely used for storage, but could be converted into further bedrooms, office space or reception rooms. The rooms include a 45ft long gallery in the property's eaves, with exposed timber beams.
At the front of the property there are ornamental gardens, while access for vehicles is to the side of the neighbouring property and leads to a gravel courtyard area at the side of the house, providing parking space and access to the garage. The splendid rear garden is south-facing, and includes paved terracing, paved and gravel pathways, well-maintained lawns and well-stocked border flowerbeds. There are also a variety of shrubs, mature trees and established border hedgerows.

This has to be one of my favourite houses in Louth, so many gorgeous period features, I especially like the garden rooms which have their own barRoo Fisher
