THE AVENUE, HEALING, GRIMSBY
**** RECENTLY REDUCED **** Delightfully situated half way down The Avenue in this sought after village position, this unique detached family residence is set within wonderful grounds approaching 0.6 of an acre and provides spacious accommodation throughout which must be viewed to be appreciated.
Built in 1906 to exacting standards this magnificent residence has been home to the same family for almost 50 years and displays all the virtues and character of Edwardian architecture with its feature brick archways, sandstone lintels and high apex roof line further enhanced by two turreted front balconies.
Extended over the years to form an additional Sitting Room adjoining the main Lounge and a further large detached double brick garage built to the right hand side of the house. Requiring some updating Mulberry Lodge offers so much scope to add potential for the discerning purchaser whilst retaining many original features commensurate with the era.
Accommodation includes a lovely arched brick enclosed entrance porch with a deep cupboard opening into a large hallway with the original panelled. Staircase rising to a spacious first landing featuring beautiful original twin lead windows at the front. The Family Lounge also retains the original brickette fireplace and deep bay with an open archway forming part of the large Sitting Room extending to 24'0 in length. Adjacent is a good size breakfast room over looking the garden whilst across from the hallway there is an excellent size dining room ideal for entertaining enjoying dual aspect views onto the front gardens. A rear lobby is nicely positioned just off the main hallway which leads onto the fitted Kitchen, a large walk in pantry, a Utility Room with fitted sink unit and a separate Cloakroom with w.c.
On the first floor there is a part galleried landing with further inner hall serving four excellent size bedrooms each with sink units and some with built in storage cupboards. The family bathroom features a bath and shower cubicle and in addition there is a separate w.c. and a valuable walk in linen room providing plenty of storage. The house benefits from a gas central heating system, burglar alarm and the majority of the windows have been replaced in recent years by uPVC double glazing with exception of some original leaded secondary glazed windows to the front elevation of the house.
The property is partly hidden from The Avenue set behind deep ornate shrubs and trees approached via an in/out horse shoe driveway serving a double brick garage and further single brick garage either side of the property. Mulberry Lodge is set within 0.6 acres of wonderful gardens which must been seen to be appreciated especially from the rear. Overlooking the main house extensive lawns are scattered by soft fruit trees and flanked by leafy pathways leading to a delightful Summer House strategically placed for the afternoon sunshine. There is a large greenhouse, a delightful vegetable garden and a large shed for garden equipment whilst hedgerows and mature trees ensure privacy and define the boundaries of this glorious garden.
