The White Owl Hideaway, Little Crowtree Lane, Louth, Lincolnshire LN11 0QP
A very rare opportunity to acquire a
unique architect designed contemporary
bungalow with superbly arranged two-
bedroom accommodation, mature
enclosed gardens, courtyard, and ample
parking, all located in a special, sought-
after location just a few paces from the
scenic parkland of Westgate Fields and
From St James’ Church travel south along Upgate and turn
right immediately after the zebra crossing along Gospelgate.
At the end of the road turn left and immediately right along
Crowtree Lane. Continue for some distance passing Westgate
Fields on the right and then take the small left turn into Little
Crowtree Lane. The property is then just a short way along on
the left side.
This intriguing and thoughtfully designed, highly individual
bungalow was constructed approximately 10 years ago and
has brick faced exterior walls with flowing curves which are
mirrored by a slender sloping roof structure with a Uginox roof
covering. Heating is provided by a gas fired central heating
system with a condensing combination boiler.
Internal doors are 6-panelled and finished in oak, while the
windows are double glazed and contemporary in style, some
extending from floor level within the rooms. The external
appearance belies the feeling of space within as the rooms
have surprisingly high vaulted ceilings in contrast with the low,
understated elevations when the property is viewed from
Little Crowtree Lane.
Designed for this plot, the shape and position of the bungalow
create a sun trap courtyard at the side, enveloped by the living
rooms and hallways with French doors from both reception
rooms. There is a gravelled parking forecourt of very generous
proportions and a lawned garden to the rear with a timber
The setting equals the property in terms of unique appeal.
Positioned in a quiet, established and very sought-after
residential area, Little Crowtree Lane is a small no-through lane
close to the Louth Golf Club and just a few yards from the
scenic parkland of Westgate Fields. Crowtree Lane itself
culminates in a local landmark, a park known as Hubbards Hills
with high grass banks, woodland and the River Lud winding
(Approximate room dimensions are shown on the floor plans
which are indicative of the room layout and not to specific

part-sloping ceilings, shaped to the contours of the roof.
