Here is a traditional-looking cottage with a host of modern features and quietly tucked away in a very popular area.

The double-fronted property, in one of Hexham’s historic quarters, was actually built in the 1980s and has been upgraded with double glazing, new gas central heating and a bathroom recently refitted to a high standard.

The cottage is light, bright and deceptively spacious with a front gardens and rear patio. It is for sale with planning approval for a side and rear extension.

The house has a reception hall with attractive ceramic tiled floor and a cloaks or storage cupboard.

A door leads to the back garden and another into the sitting room which has a dual aspect and wall-mounted electric convector fire.

The dining kitchen, which completes the ground floor, also has dual-aspect windows along with a range of light-coloured wall and floor units and ample space for appliances and furniture.

A ladder provides access to roof space from the first-floor landing and doors open to two double bedrooms, one with an excellent range of fitted wardrobes.

The bathroom has a P-shaped bath with shower, vanity unit with storage and drawer unit, wall-mounted storage and mirror and ceramic tiling to walls and floor.

The front garden is fenced and gravelled while the rear has a paved garden patio with shed.
