A beautifully presented, characterful and spacious Victorian period house that has been lovingly improved by the current owners to create a welcoming and joyous family home that superbly combines traditional features and contemporary style and includes an attractive patio garden with a garage and tool shed.

Built around 1890, the house has stone steps up to the entrance and exposed and restored original floorboards to the ground floor; the entrance lobby - with its original tiled floor - leads into the hallway, which has doors into the living room - with a bay window with shutters and a feature fireplace with built-in shelving either side - and to a separate dining room, while at the end of the hall is the kitchen/family room, refurbished in April 2020 and including cream units, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher, electric oven and Rangemaster gas hob, and providing access to the rear garden. The original wooden staircase leads to the half landing, with access to a fourth bedroom/office and the contemporary bathroom that includes a double-length shower cubicle with dual-head shower and a free-standing bath, while the main first floor landing provides access to the two double bedrooms and a good-sized third bedroom (over 13' long), as well as having a built-in cupboard and hatch for access to the loft, which has excellent space and potential for conversion (subject to the necessary building regulations and consents) - something that has been done in several of the nearby houses. The rear garden has a block-paved area and steps up to the patio, along with well-stocked borders, and access to the tool shed as well as into the garage (10'5" x 17'8"), which has an inspection pit, a light and electric sockets. The house has uPVC double glazing and gas central heating, via combi. boiler.

The house is situated midway along Benfieldside Road, close to the centre of Shotley Bridge, within easy reach of Blackhill, both of which have shops and cafes/restaurants, as well as renowned schools including Shotley Bridge Primary schools. It is approximately two miles from Consett town centre, which has further amenities - including the retail park and major supermarkets - and there are excellent road links to Durham and Newcastle, which are both within 15 miles, and across the River Derwent into Northumberland. There are popular countryside walks and cycle tracks nearby, including the Derwent Walk and the Coast-to-Coast route.
