Full Details

A two bedroom semi detached bungalow home with plenty of potential, located on a generous corner plot in a quiet cul-de-sac just off the village green in the sought after village of Houghton.

The village is within easy access to Junction 44 of the M6 motorway and also the A689 to Brampton linking to the A69 Road to Newcastle and boasts it's own primary school, local shop, restaurant and village hall.  It is also within walking distance to the Near Boot public house and just a five minute drive to leading supermarkets and all of the other amenities available at Kingstown.

The size of the plot to the home gives plenty of options for development (subject to consent).  The side garden is mainly shillied with mature beds and bushes and is currently home to the garage, greenhouse and covered passage utility area,  There is a driveway and a low maintenance garden to the front and a flagged rear garden.

Inside, the home has been adapted by the current owners.  A doorway has been relocated to give access to the main bedroom off the lounge and this has been used for many years as a dining and sitting room.  The old door frame still exists and could be re-instated should this be required.

Extensions have been made to the front and rear of the home.  To the front to create a sun room off the hallway and to the rear to make the bedrooms more spacious.

The second bedroom has fitted wardrobes and is accessed from the rear hall, as is the bathroom.  The kitchen is accessed from the home's main entrance and has a generous storage cupboard housing the combi boiler witch was replaced in 2019.

The covered passage is a great utility area with a water supply, sink and electrics, the garage also has an electric supply.
