A handsome Period town house positioned within the sought-after west conservation area of Louth and providing elegant and well-proportioned character accommodation to include three good bedrooms, a spacious bathroom with white suite, bath and shower cubicle, hallway with pillared balustrade leading up to a gallery landing, two reception rooms, dining/garden room, kitchen, utility, pantry and a ground floor cloakroom/WC. Long attractive and well-maintained rear garden. Garage beyond.

Directions From St. James' church proceed south along Upgate and immediately after the zebra crossing take the narrow right turning into Gospelgate. Look for and take the left turn into George Street and continue towards the top of the road where number 22 will be found on the left side.

The Property This attractive Period town house is thought to date back to the late Victorian or Edwardian era, having brick and rendered principal walls beneath main pitched timber roof structures covered in slates. The well-proportioned accommodation is heated by a gas-fired central heating system with a condensing boiler. The living accommodation was enhanced in recent times by the creation of the dining/garden room which overlooks the long rear garden and has internal French doors from the second reception room, whilst being semi-open plan with the kitchen adjacent.

The large multi-pane front windows have white -framed, sliding secondary glazing units fitted and some of the rear windows are of uPVC double-glazed type. At the foot of the garden there is a concrete sectional garage with access from Little South Street and the long garden provides the potential to increase the size of garaging or open this area for car parking if preferred subject to obtaining any necessary consents from the local authority.

Properties are seldom for sale in this particularly sought-after area of the town and viewing is therefore strongly recommended.
