Full description

Situated on the corner of Louth Road and Southfield Avenue, this double fronted detached bungalow is believed to originally date from the 1920's and at one time was a thriving grocery shop! Returned to residential use in the 1980's, and recently refurbished and updated, the property now offers very spacious accommodation with gas central heating with a new boiler this year, uPVC framed double glazing installed in 2019 and a security alarm system.

Principal features of the very flexible accommodation include the welcoming Reception/Dining Hall which is large enough to be considered as a room itself, the undeniably huge Lounge which measures 23'10 by 13'0 and the light and airy Dining Kitchen with a range of hand painted cream units. Potentially there are up to four bedrooms if required although the one that leads off the Reception/Dining Hall would be perfect as an additional daytime room for dining or relaxing. The Master Bedroom is positioned at the rear of the bungalow and it has the benefit of its own ensuite Bathroom with a newly installed white suite including a shower above the bath. A Shower Room (again newly equipped) is positioned close to the other two bedrooms – either of which could be put to use as a Study or Office if needed.

The bungalow stands within excellent size gardens with driveway access at the front from Louth Road and plenty of space for parking vehicles. The gardens are principally lawned to both the front and the rear with a block paved patio positioned just behind the bungalow.

Scartho village centre is within easy reach with its extensive range of shopping facilities, tea rooms, licensed premises etc. Regular buses serve the general area and the property lies within the general catchment of good schools including the Tollbar Academy.

Please note that Planning Permission has been granted for a new dwelling on part of the original rear garden of No.172 Louth Road. The Building Plot is being offered for sale separately although an offer to buy the bungalow and the plot would be considered.

All in all this is a lovely bungalow benefitting from recent improvements including full redecoration and new carpets which result in it being in ready-to-move-into condition. EPC Rating - D
