LONG ACRE, LOUTH ROAD, FOTHERBY, LOUTH
Situated on the northern fringe of the delightful village of Fotherby. Long Acre is a unique residence combining many different elements to create a wonderful opportunity for the right buyer. The property stands within grounds of around 1.7 acres in total and in addition to the main house there are workshops, storage facilities, two former flats, space for potential additional accommodation subject to necessary planning and consents and even a salon/treatment room.
In the Agents opinion Long Acre offers scope for number of potential alternative uses and may attract a purchaser with a need for commercial premises in addition to a fine home or perhaps someone wishing to create holiday lets or small start up business units. There may be potential to build additional properties on the land (subject to obtaining any necessary permissions of course) or provide livery or caravan storage.
Principal features of the main house include the spacious Staircase Hall/Study, the superb 23'5 Lounge, the Living Room with a bandbox style bay window and 'waggon wheel' ceiling feature and the good size Living Kitchen which has recently been enhanced by the installation of gloss aubergine contemporary units. The Utility Room is larger than most kitchens whilst upstairs the central Landing gives access to four super Bedrooms and the much larger than average Bathroom with a corner bath and multi-jet steam shower cubicle. The house itself benefits from part oil fired central heating, double glazing in a combination of wooden and UPVC frames and a security alarm system.
Fotherby is located just five minutes from the centre of Louth and no more than 20 minutes or so from Grimsby. The Lincolnshire Wolds are close by and the resorts of Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe are within easy reach.
Only a full inspection of Long Acre will allow a potential buyer to appreciate the individual appeal of the property and the scope it offers. With two workshops and the opportunity to possibly create more accommodation the property could be considered an investment as much as a home and fluid thinking along these lines will help in assessing what Long Acre is all about!
