Located in the heart of the very popular 'village' of Scartho this classic 1920s detached bungalow has been significantly extended from the original and then further enhanced by the addition of first floor accommodation to create a wonderful family size home. The project has been undertaken as a labour of love by the current long term owners and viewing is highly recommended and essential to fully appreciate their endeavours and the end result.
Principal features of the accommodation include the long centrally positioned corridor hallway, the impressive main Lounge with its oak fireplace and French doors to the garden and the superbly proportioned Living Kitchen which can offer space for sitting and dining in addition to its comprehensive range of oak finish units and provision for freestanding appliances. A handy Utility Room leads off the Living Kitchen and French doors open directly to the rear garden for easy transfer between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
A key element of the property's appeal will be the flexibility of its use with potentially three ground floor bedrooms and two upstairs. At present the owners use one of the downstairs rooms as a lovely Dining Room and another as a home gym but they would be great as bedrooms if needed. The Family Bathroom is at ground floor level and features a white suite including a bath and a separate clear shower cubicle. An enclosed Staircase Hall is large enough to use as a Study perhaps and from there a spindle staircase leads to the first floor.
At the upper level there is the Master Bedroom with its own walk-in wardrobe and ensuite Shower Room which can also be independently accessed from the Landing for flexibility of use. A second upstairs Bedroom is of excellent size and could suit occupants of any age from toddlers through to teenagers. The accommodation benefits from gas central heating, uPVC framed double glazing and a security alarm for peace of mind.
The gardens extend to around 200'ft. in total depth and are one of the property's most delightful elements and include extensive lawns, established trees and shrubs and plenty of paved areas for al-fresco dining and enjoying the sunshine. The Garage is much larger than average and built to an excellent standard and although the side drive is a little too narrow for full vehicle usage is ideal for bikes, motorbikes and general storage. To the front there is ample gravelled parking for several vehicles and established shrubs provide a good level of privacy.
The village of Scartho is a delight with its specialist retailers, tearooms, tapas bars and other general shopping facilities. The property falls within the catchment of well regarded schools including the Tollbar Academy for 11 - 18 year olds and additional facilities include the Health Centre and the Rose and Crown Public House. The Diana Princess of Wales Hospital is only a short walk away too.
All in all No.244 Scartho Road is a wonderful home combining traditional virtues of 1920s styling with the must have features of a modern family home. Viewing can be arranged through the Agents on Grimsby 311000. EPC Rating - C
