Directions From St James Church in the heart of Louth, travel just a few yards along Upgate and turn immediately left along Little Eastgate. Follow the road passing Lakings Butchers and take the second left turn down Cannon Street and past the cinema. At the crossroads carry straight on along Broadbank and turn first right into Kiln Lane. The property is on the left after a few paces. The gated entrance into the courtyard will be found on the right side of Broadbank just after the turning into Kiln Lane.
The Property We understand that this very impressive town house which is one of a small exclusive development of just four houses, was constructed in 2004. The property has brick-faced principal walls beneath pitched timber roof structures covered in slate and the windows are large double-glazed sashes in keeping with the Conservation Area setting, but allowing light to flood the rooms within, creating a light and airy feel. The upper rear windows command some fine views across the central area and rooftops of Louth. Heating is by a condensing gas central heating boiler and a glance at the EPC graphs will show that the house enjoys an efficiency which belies the proportions of the accommodation.
This is one of four special town houses and viewing is very strongly recommended to appreciate its many attributes.

To the rear of the property and arranged for ease of maintenance, there is a spacious flagstone-paved and brick-walled courtyard garden with a curved flower bed to one corner, climbing plant over the curved brick wall, outside wall lantern, external water tap and external gas and electricity meter cabinets. A tall ledged, braced and framed pedestrian door set into the rear wall gives access to the tarmac-paved courtyard and driveway which is shared with the three neighbouring properties and within which this property has an allocated car parking space and an open fronted garage within the brick and block-built range of four garages positioned to the side of the courtyard.
The approximate dimensions of the garage and a useful store at the rear are shown on the floor plans. Both garage and store have electric strip lighting and the letter has a consumer unit and power point.
The four houses enjoy shared access if they require, through double timber doors down a slope directly to the River Lud.
