Inside this stunning fully-featured home in Healing, it’s hard to tell it used to be a church hall!

The Lifeboat Hotel on Cleethorpes seafront — once a popular drinking venue – was demolished in 2000 but part of its fabric still remains in the area.

The pub was sold in 1999 for £270,000 to Grimsby building developers F. A. Would who went on to build luxury flats on the site. Oak salvaged from the former hotel and pub was used to create a beautiful porch at a previously converted church hall in Healing.

What’s more, the flooring of the porch contains Yorkshire stone, reclaimed from the Old Town Hall square. These nods to the history of our towns have helped shape a stunning home from a humble hall, which once catered for birthday parties in the Eighties.

The conversion and extension were applied for in 1990 and approved.

The five-bedroom house also boasts three bathrooms – making it ideal for the potential creation of a granny annex!

The detached family property boasts a generous sized plot comprising; entrance hall, cloakroom, living room, sitting room, kitchen/diner, conservatory, five bedrooms, en-suites to bedrooms one and five and family bathroom.

As you step on the porch, French doors with beautiful stained glass lead to a spacious, welcoming entrance hall with oak flooring. The hall alone is a staggering 11.2m long and also provides access to the garage!
