For Sale by Public Auction on Monday 30th September at The Grand Hotel Gosforth ( Formally The Marriott Gosforth Park) . A surprisingly spacious and well-presented bungalow that has undergone recent refurbishment, with a converted loft space, elevated views and a garage for storage, available with no onward chain.
