Property description

Description


Property for sale


'hillam royd'
22 abbey park road, grimsby

This substantial Victorian house we believe was built in the 1880's. This large property has a commanding appearance and benefits from extensive accommodation. Up the steps through the sandstone masonry into an open porch through to a wonderful entrance hall with a superb staircase. 3 large living rooms, a large well fitted kitchen, utility room, ground floor toilet, a further ground floor entrance at the front leading off the kitchen. Then a door from the main entrance hall down steps onto a balcony and the rear garden. Upstairs, in total five bedrooms. 3 massive doubles and a small fourth, used as an office, off the main landing together with the bathroom then through a side door on the landing, the servant's staircase which comes up from the kitchen, leads to another bedroom with its own small ensuite area. From this bedroom the attic rooms are accessed and there are 3 of those of various sizes.
Back to the ground floor and from the main hallway, a door leads you through to a small staircase into the cellar where there are 6 rooms, one with the history of Headquarters for the Civil Defence during the 2nd world war. At the side of the property a good size garage we believe constructed in the 1950's when the property was underpinned. Only 6 years ago a structural surveyor confirmed the satisfactory work of the under pinning.
Outside, a nice frontage with a drive to one side, a garden path to the other. The front garden is mostly grassed and each side a collection of bushes and shrubs and trees. Around the back, a really nice garden, used for children just now, as you will see. There are trees, shrubs, fruit trees of pear, apple and fig. Unusual corner garden house, the garden is walled and fenced securely. Behind this garden runs a copse of substantial trees which are subject to a conservation order. It is really quite a magic location. Central Grimsby at its historic best, everything within walking distance, the Park, Town Centre and transport.
Purchase £255, 000
