  • Bedrooms: 5
A spacious, well-presented and improved period family home with an impressive open-plan kitchen and dining room at its heart, situated within the Shotley Bridge conservation and available with no chain.

Built in the 1890's the house - previously known as 'Derwent View' - has been tastefully improved by the current and previous owners to provide an excellent family home that sympathetically combines period character and contemporary style. With UPVC double glazing and gas central heating via combi. boiler (installed in 2017, with new radiators), the sizeable accommodation comprises, on the ground floor: entrance lobby, hall with wooden spindle staircase and wooden flooring, living room with traditional open fire and bay window with window seat, dining room with multi-fuel stove, open into a fitted kitchen with central island unit and through to a large utility room to the rear. To the first floor, the half-landing leads to the master bedroom with wet room and a family bathroom, while the landing leads to two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and has a door with stairs up to a further landing in the loft space and a further versatile double bedroom with central chimney breast. Externally, there is a low-maintenance forecourt garden with stone steps to the front and a rear yard with wooden steps up to an elevated artificial lawn and patio garden, which has a roller garage door to the rear lane.

The house is situated midway along Benfieldside Road, on the corner of Western Hill, and has a view directly to the front over Newstead Rise and the Derwent Valley beyond. It is close to the popular village of Shotley Bridge and also within easy reach of Blackhill, both of which have some shops and cafes, as well as renowned schools including Shotley Bridge Primary schools. It is approximately two miles from Consett town centre, which has further amenities, and there are excellent road links to Durham and Newcastle - both within 15 miles - and across the River Derwent into Northumberland.
