1. Three bedroom detached house in Cecil Court, Hartlepool, for sale £180,000
First up is this former show home, which means the house comes with lots of extras. This contemporary new build is being sold with a £1,000 buyer's incentive, making it an ideal home for a young family looking to get a good deal.
The brand new property has been built and decorated to a high standard, with features including a ‘plasma’ style fireplace in the lounge, a two tone fitted kitchen with built in appliances and a master bedroom with a modern en suite.
Outside, the rear garden is mainly laid to lawn while at the front of the house is a garden with more mature shrubbery and plants. There is also no need to worry about parking as the property comes with a detached garage.
Hartlepool has no shortage of schools, shops and sporting facilities as well as the benefit of a beautiful coastline with a thriving marina. For those that commute to work, it is only a 25 minute drive to Middlesbrough, 33 minutes to Sunderland and 47 minutes to Newcastle Upon Tyne.
