This mid-terrace house is located in the former pit village of Ushaw Moor in Co Durham, on the edge of open fields and countryside. Tastefully decorated throughout, this brick-built property is well-maintained and has been brought up to date to offer a comfortable, modern home with a traditional feel.
Ushaw Moor has become the centre of the Deerness Valley and benefits from good links with Newcastle and the cathedral city of Durham. The house itself is situated on the edge of Ushaw Moor Cricket Club and is close to local amenities including convenience stores, fast food outlets, a taxi company, post office and schools. Durham Community Business College is also nearby, the property is also within a few minutes walk to the popular Deerness Valley Railway Path.
The property features attractive wooden interior doors, with entry through a porch and internal hall. The lounge is a light, airy and relaxed living space with a picture rail around the perimeter and wooden flooring. It has a open working fireplace set into a feature wall with a surround and tiled hearth. A second reception room, currently used for dining, has a feature fire surround and neutral décor. The galley-style kitchen is attractive and modern. Two key features immediately catch the eye the large, butler-style sink and the split stable-style door that leads into the rear garden. The room is illuminated by LED spotlights, and there is a built-in hob, oven and extractor hood along with a range of high and low-level units. Wooden counter tops and a tiled floor add a pleasant rustic ambience, while an under-stair cupboard offers valuable additional storage. The bathroom is also located on the ground floor and has a bath with shower over, fitted with a splash screen, a hand-basin and toilet, and a wall-mounted towel rail. Upstairs, both bedrooms feature old-fashioned heaters built into the walls, but these are simply an interesting ornamental detail as both also have radiators as part of the propertys gas-fired central heating system. The main bedroom is a large and versatile space, while the second enjoys views across the cricket ground to the rear.
The property benefits from cavity wall and roof insulation, along with double-glazing. The central heating system is controlled by a programmable thermostat, while individual room radiators are also fitted with thermostatic valves. The majority of fixed lighting outlets are fitted with low-energy lighting.
The property has an enclosed rear garden, predominantly paved but with a large bed currently filled with a range of flowers and plants. There is plenty of space for outdoor garden furniture, and a separate garden shed.
In our opinion, this house is full of character and ideal for someone seeking a countryside location with easy access to busier urban centres. Viewing will help prospective buyers appreciate the full charm this terraced cottage has to offer.
