Attractive family home needs a personal touch
THIS terraced family house, in a popular and sought-after area of Hexham, offers its buyer the opportunity to put their own stamp on their home.
Located down a small lane, the attractive family property has numerous noteworthy features, including the original ceiling coving, ceiling roses, skirting boards, panelled doors and high ceilings, all in well-proportioned rooms.
Selling agent Andrew Coulson said: “The property is in Millfield Terrace, which we consider to be a desirable area of Hexham. It is an extremely attractive, three-bedroom mid-terraced family home, located down a small lane.
“The property is in need of refurbishment and it is being sold with immediate vacant possession. We strongly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate all that the accommodation has to offer.”
The house has a wooden front door with fan light leading into an entrance porch. The porch gives access to the hall which has doors to the two reception rooms. The lounge at the front is a good-sized room with a large bay window, feature fireplace with real-flame coal gas fire, ceiling cornice and ceiling rose.
The separate sitting/dining room beyond also has a feature fireplace with real-flame coal gas fire, ceiling cornice and ceiling rose. There is a second door to the kitchen at the back of the house.
The kitchen has tall fitted wall and floor units with worktops incorporating a stainless steel sink and double drainer with mixer tap over and tiled splash-backs. There is a gas cooker point, plumbing for a dishwasher and a useful large walk-in cupboard with shelving. A door leads to the outside.
Going upstairs, the first-floor half-landing has a linen cupboard and a three-piece bathroom with electric shower over the bath and fully-tiled walls.
The main landing has two large built-in storage cupboards. There are doors off to the three bedrooms, two doubles and one single.
One double bedroom has twin sets of built-in wardrobes, with dressing table and drawer units, and an ornate cornice ceiling. The window gives views across Hexham.
The other double bedroom also has twin sets of built-in wardrobes. These have lockers above and display shelves. Again there is an ornate cornice ceiling. The single bedroom also has a cornice ceiling.
The front garden, which is paved with a wrought-iron gate and wrought-iron decorative railings either side, enjoys a sunny aspect. It has shrubs planted around the bay window.
At the back of the house is an enclosed yard with high brick walls and a door to the shared back lane.
There is a very useful old garage/workshop here which is suitable for a variety of uses. It is plumbed for a washing machine and has a stainless steel sink with double drainer and mixer tap over and cupboards under. Electricity and water are connected.
The house has double glazing and central heating and is offered for sale with all fitted carpets and curtains, and the benefit of no forward chain.
