PARK DRIVE, GRIMSBY
The low numbered houses on the western wing of Park Drive have been regarded for over a century as some of the finest private residences in the region and No 3 is undoubtedly no exception as it provides luxuriously appointed accommodation of immense quality set within parkland gardens which are a pleasure to see.
Architecturally this is an absolute gem with Tudor influences to the red brick front elevation along with a substantial double bay window and an archway above the entrance door. The Entrance Lobby opens through into a wonderful Reception Hall which sets the tone for the accommodation with its decorative moulding, arched framing to the staircase and impressive fireplace. There is a convenient Cloakroom whilst the spacious formal Dining Room is a beauty with three quarter polished oak panelling and a classic fire surround. The signature room of the house will, for many, be the capacious Drawing Room with a part vaulted ceiling, an elegant recessed stone fireplace with mahogany panelling and French doors opening to the garden. The Dining Kitchen is presented in a contemporary style having been recently updated and features grey grained cabinets, dramatic marbled quartz worksurfaces and a striking red Aga range cooker. There is plenty of room within the Dining Kitchen for an everyday table whilst the Utility Room boasts the advantage of an extensive range of units and a double oven. The picture of the ground floor accommodation is completed by a flexible Family Room which can meet several needs including possible use as a downstairs guest bedroom suite with its ensuite Shower Room and concealed kitchen facilities.
At first floor level there are five double Bedrooms with the Master Bedroom benefitting from ranges of built-in furniture and a contemporary styled ensuite Bathroom which includes a whirlpool bath and an rectangular shower cubicle. Two of the bedrooms feature wash basins within them whilst another also benefits from ensuite facilities by way of a cleverly created Shower Room which leads from it. The Family Bathroom is presented to a superb standard with a white suite including a chrome framed freestanding bath and a recessed wet room style shower cubicle.
The house has the benefit of gas central heating and a security alarm system and some of the windows are double glazed.
The established gardens are one of the property's real strengths with plenty of sett paved parking at the front and a limited width driveway leading to the Garage. The rear garden faces west and is enhanced with sweeping lawns, mature trees, a paved terrace for outdoor dining and a children's play area.
Grimsby Town Centre is just a few minutes walk away and the property lies within easy reach of well regarded private schools of St Martins and St James.
Whilst many classic Edwardian and Victorian properties in central Grimsby are offered to the market needing substantial further investment, No 3 Park Drive is completely the opposite. The prestigious standard of maintenance and updating undertaken by the current owners is beyond debate and the availability of this fine residence should not be overlooked by those seeking to own one of the regions most magnificent private homes.
