A substantial, detached, double-fronted family house, now thought to be just over 100 years old and which has been the subject of a significant extension and improvement scheme creating superbly presented and well-proportioned family accommodation. The property stands in large mature grounds extending to approximately 1.75 acres (subject to survey) and enjoys a quiet situation set well back from the road with a large workshop, single garage and timber store shed to the rear providing potential live/work use (subject to planning permission). Please see the online particulars for full details and photographs.Directions
Entering North Somercotes on the A1031 road from the north, proceed through the centre of the village and continue past the village hall on the left and then just after the Oasis Fishing Lakes the informal approach to the rear of Warren House will be found on the left. There is also a main entrance which has been reinstated with gates onto a long driveway leading up to the main, front elevation of the house. Viewers are asked to take the first entrance and park to the rear of the house in the driveway adjacent to the workshop. The Property
This substantial family home has brick faced and rendered walls beneath pitched timber roof structures which have been re-covered with concrete tiles. The property has double-glazed windows, an LPG dual-zone central heating system and a security alarm system. The rooms are traditionally arranged and of excellent proportions with high elegant ceilings.
The house can be approached over a central front gravel driveway leading directly through the lawned and tree-lined deep front garden, or via an owned, shared informal driveway leading around to the gated gravelled courtyard and outbuildings at the rear. Location

There are some pleasant walks nearby whilst the beach and coastal pathways are less than 1.5 miles away. The nearby holiday park on the south side of the village has a fishing lake, tennis courts, snooker room, bars and there are walks through pine woodland stretching away to the rear of Warren House.
