2 bed bungalow to buy in NE17

Agents comments: "We are delighted to welcome to the market this attractive two bedroom bungalow in the semi- rural location of High Westwood". The property benefits from a wonderful position in an idyllic setting, and will not fail to impress with its high standard of finish to all areas of the property. The property is but a short drive from surrounding areas such as Consett (3.8 miles), Meadomsley, Rowlands Gill and Ebchester to name a few. The property also has good access to the wider North East area being just over 12 miles to Newcastle town centre. For walking enthusiasts, there is access to the Derwent Walk via a lane opposite the property.

As one would expect with such a rural property, the bungalow is heated by a multifuel stove, however, in addition, it recently has benefitted from some significant upgrades to the fabric of the property. These include:- a state of the art air source heat pump and hot water tank, loft and cavity wall insulation. This will provides future owners the full benefit of low running costs for the foreseeable future. There is also a large loft space which is an ideal loft conversion project for those that love the location but perhaps need the extra good sized en-suite bedroom. This option has been carried out by other owners in the adjacent properties and with the large hot water tank there would be plenty of hot water available!

In brief, the property comprises of; porch, lounge with a log burner, two bedrooms, kitchen/dining room, utility/boot room and bathroom. There is also a well proportioned loft space with a retractable ladder for storage. Externally there is a garden to front as well as a yard to the rear, an additional garden plot and a detached garage. Viewing is essential to truly appreciate this stunning property. The property is Freehold and in council tax band B.
