A fantastic lifestyle opportunity! Positioned in meticulously landscaped mature grounds of more than one third of an acre (STS) this immaculate and superbly appointed detached family house enjoys a secluded setting and features a Richard Sutton fitted living/dining kitchen, utility kitchen and en suite shower room to the master bedroom, an impressive five-piece, contemporary bathroom, a detached double garage, Hive controlled gas central heating system (partially underfloor) and uPVC double glazing.

Directions From Louth, take the Legbourne Road away from the town then proceed to the bypass roundabout. Take the first exit along the B1200 and follow the road to the eventual crossroads traffic lights at Manby Middlegate.

Turn left along Tinkle Street and proceed for a short distance until the turning into Priory Lane is found on the right. Turn into the lane for just a short distance until the entrance into the exclusive Priory gardens properties is found on the right and Brambledown will be found at the very end of this well-presented, private shared driveway.

The Property During the late 1990's an opportunity arose to acquire three residential building plots in the grounds of The Priory. The present owners of Brambledown acquired the rear plot backing onto the local playing field and in 2000 a respected local builder named John Garbutt constructed the house to a fine design, taking advantage of the orientation and plot dimensions.

The house has brick-faced cavity walls with low-maintenance corbelled eaves and gables under a pitched timber roof structure covered in concrete interlocking tiles and the detached double garage has been designed and built to complement the house. The design features a projecting two-storey front gable, front bay window and canopy porch, the latter both covered in Rosemary-style tiled roofs.

Originally built as a Victorian-style conservatory projecting into the main rear garden, this room was transformed around three years ago by a tile-effect roof covering and shaped, plastered vaulted ceiling into the impressive garden room of today.

An extension by local builder, Andrew Blades, was completed in October 2020 and the interior was reconfigured and fitted by highly regarded local specialist Richard Sutton to create a stunning and tastefully equipped living/dining kitchen with integrated quality appliances and a complementary utility-kitchen. A handsome oak-framed porch was built around the entrance from the utility-kitchen into the garden with extended sandstone paving from the original pathways.

The master bedroom has built-in Sharps furniture with handleless doors and this extends into the en suite dressing room with access beyond to the en suite shower room, also re-fitted by Richard Sutton with a level access glazed and porcelain-tiled shower cubicle with marble styling to the walls and floors. The family bathroom is spacious with a designer double-ended, floor-standing bath, twin suspended vanity wash basins, shower cubicle and WC.

Controlled by dual-zone, wifi-enabled Hive controllers, the gas central heating system has a condensing boiler which was renewed in 2019 with an annual service contract and the system was extended by way of underfloor heating in 2020 with digital controls. There is a flame-effect gas fire set into the handsome brick fireplace in the lounge and this has an external brick-built chimney stack. A security alarm system was fitted in 2020. Sharps wardrobes have also been fitted in double bedrooms 2 and 3 in 2020 and the windows and external doors/French doors of the house have uPVC double-glazed panes, many with multi-pane-effect glazing. There are plantation shutters to the French doors and the window of the living/dining kitchen.

The floors of the living areas are finished in oak-effect Karndean and porcelain tiling, and electrical sockets and switches have been upgraded to a modern chrome-effect complementing the styling of the interior. The interior doors are a combination of white six-panel and part-glazed styles with stylish, modern chrome handles.

The rooms are beautifully presented and demonstrate the contemporary lifestyle afforded by this exceptional family home. The gardens are equally outstanding with extensive lawns, trees, hedges, patio, pathways and a timber garden shed.
