PELHAM HOUSE, MAIN ROAD, BARNOLDBY-LE-BECK, GRIMSBY
***WONDERFUL HOME OF HISTORY AND CHARM*** Dating from around 1750 and believed to have originally been a hunting lodge for Lord Yarborough, this fine Grade II listed residence stands elegantly within its wonderful parkland gardens which extend to approximately one acre in total. Presented to an impeccable standard throughout Pelham House has benefitted from later extensions and alterations to create one of the finest homes currently available in the region and discerning potential purchasers are advised to visit without delay.
The property is positioned in the heart of the highly regarded village of Barnoldby le Beck yet enjoys an excellent degree of seclusion and privacy courtesy of established hedgerow to the boundaries and the mature trees which define its setting. The house is cream colour washed under a principally slate roof and its western Georgian influenced facade is an aesthetic treasure.
Pelham House is effectively 'L' shaped in layout reflecting the changes made throughout its 250 year history and principal features of the accommodation include the impressive and welcoming Reception Hall with its stone fireplace, the superb 30'0 Drawing Room (formerly a Billiard Room we believe) and the lovely Sitting Room with a classic firesurround and recessed display shelves. The Dining Room has been designed to accommodate the largest of family dining tables whilst the Dining Kitchen is a real focal point of the home with high quality oak and cream cabinets, black granite work surfaces and an island unit with an integral adjoining dining table. Additional lobby areas, a Utility Room and a cellar provide great extra facilities and there is also a Cloakroom including a toilet and hand basin.
At first floor level there are two long landings which serve six bedrooms in total. The Gallery Landing in the western sector of the house is a joy to see in itself whilst the Master Bedroom benefits from its own ensuite Bathroom including a roll edge bath and a larger than average shower enclosure. The five further Bedrooms are all doubles with three featuring washbasins and two being linked by a door and short staircase, allowing them to be used as a suite by an independent teenager if required. A Family Bathroom and a Family Shower Room are accessed from the eastern landing making them a flexible facility for the occupants of the other five bedrooms.
Pelham House has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system, some double glazing and a security system. A triple car port provides sheltered parking whilst the gravelled courtyard area allows the parking of several vehicles.
In the Agents opinion the parkland gardens are undoubtedly one of Pelham House's most appealing assets. The lawns gently undulate under the canopy of the established trees whilst mature shrub and flower beds add colour and interest. The western terrace is fabulous for entertaining and the east facing courtyard garden is a private haven for sunny early morning breakfasts.
The prestigious village of Barnoldby le Beck is a delight in itself with The Ship, a popular Public House/Restaurant just a short stroll away. The larger village of Waltham is just a couple of minutes drive with its plethora of facilities and popular schools.
All in all Pelham House is a wonderful home of history and charm and any buyer will enjoy its 'Lord of the Manor' ambience and appeal. Viewing is essential.
