CHURCH LANE, HOLTON LE CLAY, GRIMSBY
Enjoying a wide frontage to Church Lane this impressive detached house is known to date back to the mid 1800s with suggestions that parts may be even older. Cleverly updated, remodelled and enhanced including substantial works undertaken in the last few years by the current owners the property is an absolute delight to see and provides excellent space and options for the largest of families.
Due to its size the property at one point in its history was split into two separate homes and the legacy of this includes two entrance halls, two staircases etc which now serve to add to its charm and unique appeal. Principal features include the front Entrance Hall with its spindle balustrade staircase and recently installed arched glass full height internal window, the Dining Kitchen with a comprehensive range of cream cabinets and built in appliances and the superb 'P' shaped uPVC double glazed Conservatory which is a lovely spot from where to enjoy views across the rear garden. The Dining Room is superbly proportioned and features a classic oak firesurround whilst the main Lounge is more rustic in it's presentation with a brick firesurround and multi fuel stove, an area of quarry tile flooring and an oak pillar. The ground floor also features an excellent half tiled Shower Room and in addition there is a useful internal Storeroom plus a sizeable Workshop and Utility/Toilet which offer a little scope for further enhancement and potential for alternative uses perhaps.
At first floor level there are three double Bedrooms and a Bathroom linked by four Landing areas with staircases at each end. The largest Bedroom is a beautiful room with a black cast iron fireplace whilst the Bathroom features a classic white suite including a roll edge bath. A further staircase gives access to the second floor accommodation which provides two double Bedrooms including a stylish 'loft apartment' room with Velux style windows enjoying plenty of natural light.
The property benefits from gas central heating (with two boilers installed in recent years), uPVC framed double glazing and a security alarm system. Within the beautiful grounds there is a sturdy Double Garage plus two car ports and a reinforced concrete driveway for parking additional vehicles. The rear garden is a delight with an extensive lawn, a paved terrace area perfect for outdoor entertaining and hedged boundaries. Vehicular access is via Bevers Way and the driveway is enclosed by superb decorative iron double gates.
The village of Holton le Clay provides an excellent range of facilities including a well stocked general store, a popular tea room, a well regarded Public House and hot food takeaways. The property falls within the catchment of the Tollbar Academy for 11-18 year olds and the towns of both Grimsby and Louth are easily accessible. All in all No 3 Church Lane is a wonderful home combining character, flexibility and space to create somewhere rather special. Internal viewing is essential to appreciate it to the full and this can be arranged via the Agents on Grimsby 311000. EPC Rating - E
