The subject property comprises a roughly rectangular shaped site fronting High Holme Road, Louth. It provides a rare opportunity in Louth, through the partial new build of a number of properties and the refurbishment of an existing building, to create a scheme of around 10-12 units in what is an attractive, well established residential location about 1/4 mile north west of the Town Centre.
The site slopes upwards away from High Holme Road and currently provides car parking to the front, a derelict former Social Club to the rear of the site and a 3-storey block (High Holme Court) which provides 6 No. 2/3 bedroomed apartments, most recently used as nursing accommodation. In the Agent’s opinion this would suit conversion back to private residential, either for sale or to let.
The car park and Social Club provide an area of land which, in the Agent’s opinion, could be developed with a number of residential units. Some indicative layout plans are incorporated within these particulars taken from the pre-app documentation submitted to the Local Authority.
The property is situated in an attractive, well established residential location, approximately quarter of a mile to the north west of Louth town centre. The site sits in the south eastern corner of the Louth Hospital site.
Louth is a popular and attractive Lincolnshire market town sitting on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The town has a resident population of circa 20,000 and a catchment of over 30,000. It sits adjacent to the A16 trunk road, which provides easy access to Grimsby and Humber Ports about 20 miles to the north, and to the south east are the popular Lincolnshire coastal resorts of Skegness and Chapel St Leonards.
The town provides a good range of shopping and educational facilities, including the highly regarded King Edward VI Grammar School, and in recent years won the BBC Countryfile Market Town of the Year award because of the strong local retail offer that the Town Centre provides.

No rights relating to services will be granted by the Vendor across the retained hospital site. Therefore interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries of the Utility Service Providers.
