Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An impressive and extended double-fronted semi-detached house, originally built in 1904 and impressively refurbished in recent years to provide a family home combining period features and contemporary living, with a spacious garden and versatile accommodation.

Situated at the edge of Leadgate village, Valley View House has UPVC double glazing, gas central heating (via combi. boiler) and a security alarm system. The main access is from the enclosed pebbled garden/driveway to the rear of the property, into a lobby that has a W.C. and opens into a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room, through to the dining / sitting room, front hallway and entrance lobby and a living room with bay window and feature fireplace. Also accessed from the rear lobby is the utility room which leads through to the extension - a spacious family room/ office, which has separate external access from the rear drive and a door to the garden, giving it the potential to be used as self-contained accommodation. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a single bedroom, into the eaves, with a bathroom off the half-landing. There is a good-sized mature lawned garden to the front of the house, with borders, a large summerhouse and a clay pizza oven.

Valley View House is located at the edge of Leadgate, which has some shops and facilities - including a primary school - and is just over a mile from Consett town centre, which has an expanding range of amenities including the retail park, leisure centre and Consett Academy secondary school. There are road links to the regional centres of Newcastle and Durham, which are both within 13 miles, and there are popular local walks and cycle routes, including the coast-to-coast, which passes through Leadgate.
