Facilities include the late Victorian pier, the home to the pavilion theatre, a rich variety of both independent and chain retailers to include supermarkets, art gallery, craft shops, cinema and pubs, along with restaurants and fast food outlets. There is also schooling to 16 years of age within the town.

Description Arranged over three floors, Kettleby Lodge is a most impressive Edwardian semi-detached residence. Originally one house, this imposing property was split into two dwellings by a brother and sister in the early 1960’s. The present owners have retained and enhanced the features and the charm of this period creating an elegant and stylish home arranged over three floors with adaptable gas centrally heated space.
On the ground floor there is a cosy day room which could be utilised as a dining room if preferred, a particularly generous and well fitted kitchen/dining room with Aga and a garden room with French doors leading onto the main patio. On the first floor a spacious sitting room is centred around an attractive cast iron fireplace, whilst on the opposite side of the landing is a bay fronted master bedroom together with bathroom and separate WC. The second floor has three double bedrooms.
The entrance to this property with double gates was originally a driveway providing off street parking, part of which could easily be reclaimed if preferred, however, the gardens that have been created by the present owners are stunning and very stylish and demonstrate what can be created with hedging and planting in pots. The rear garden with Westerly aspect offers a good degree of privacy and seclusion in the summer months.
Early viewing of this interesting home is strongly recommended by the sole selling agents.
