Full description

Situated on South Sea Lane a select location on the edge of the Humberston boundary, found just off Tetney Road a wonderful detached character residence set within magnificent, landscaped gardens. A former farm workers cottage, thought to have its origins around the early 1900's, now sympathetically updated over the years into a first class family home fronting onto fields and countryside. Providing bright and well presented accommodation offering space and comfort in equal measure with many rooms enjoying dual aspect vistas onto the garden. Viewings are strongly recommended to appreciate all this property has to offer.

On entry one is greeted by an inviting Entrance Porch with doors opening onto two individual Reception Rooms. The Lounge extends to 22 ft 2” in length, featuring a dog leg staircase and a recessed fireplace, whilst adjoining a traditional charming Dining Room with its solid oak floor and feature fireplace. The main Kitchen which includes a generous Dining Area displays a range of cream farmhouse style cabinets with underlighting and glass displays hosting a range of integrated quality appliances.
The Kitchen has a combination of floors with tiling and laminate floor to the Dining Area where a glazed door opens into a pleasant Snug. A relaxing room with sliding patio doors opening directly onto a delightful sun terrace with views across the gardens and driveway. A further Rear Lobby provides access to a large cloakroom W.C. and an internal door leads into the attached garage.

At the first floor level there is an extended landing serving four generous double Bedrooms each with built in cupboards. The Master Bedroom on the west wing enjoys dual aspect views and has a range of built-in wardrobes whilst benefitting from a private En-suite Bathroom created by the present owners over the years. Meanwhile the principal Bathroom takes pride upstairs, beautifully designed and tiled, featuring a range of quality built in furniture comprising a back to the wall W.C, vanity unit, panel bath and a corner shower cubicle.

The property fronts onto South Sea Lane and is approached via double gates accessed through a covered entrance onto a long concrete and brick edge driveway, leading in turn to a rather attractive shaped garage with electric folding door. In the agent's opinion the large rear garden with its cleverly designed patio and seating areas combined with sweeping lawns and fruit orchard sets the tone of this striking and individually designed residence best viewed from the rear.
