agents notes
At Hunters we are truly overwhelmed to be offered the opportunity to market this special and individual property which has been at the heart of the village community for decades. Local residents, having become aware of the property's impeding sale, have reflected on their fond memories of frequenting the local village sweet shop in their childhood and equally, their children are waiting in anticipation for the doors to re-open. Although in need of some updating, the premises offers a spectacular opportunity for the future residents to continue to provide those enchanting memories to the next generation of the Village, or, simply acquire a stunning home offering an abundance of character with desirable larger than average westerly facing rear gardens and the added prospects of further development or a dwelling / granny annex at the site of the double garage *subject to regulatory approval. Whatever your requirements, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. Further information and viewing requests should be directed to your local "Hunters" Estate Agents in the Castle Dene Shopping Centre, Peterlee on .

Situated within the rear gardens, the detached garage is divided into two individual garages and incorporates an electricity supply. The main garage offers a useful electrical roller door which opens into a larger than average space ideal for the secure standage of any family vehicle and a ladder offering accessibility into the garage loft area, which we are led to believe was the old hay storage in times gone by. The second garage provides a sliding timber garage doorway opening into an equally as impressive floor space..

Loft to garage
6.05m (19' 10") x 5.36m (17' 7")
This wonderful space which extends over both garages offers a pinch of nostalgia with exposed loft beams and a timber floor, a skylight window and two timber access doors to the front and gable walls. We are led to believe that the garage was facilitated as a stable block and in the past the loft area was used for hay storage.

Westerly facing gardens
The residence occupies a significant situation within The Village and due to the position of the property there is an eye watering, highly desirable larger than average private westerly facing rear garden laid mostly of lawns finished to a backdrop of shrubbery and timber fencing and a spectacular old flint wall concealed behind the foliage. The area is ideal for the standage of works vehicles with there being wrought iron access gates to the side lane, family gatherings or even simply privately enjoying the warm summer months. To the rear, adjoining the kitchen, there are two further outbuildings with one facilitating a W/c and the other simply for additional storage. We have also been made aware of an older outline planning application to Easington District Council at that time in 2001, for a residential dwelling in the rear gardens but this has subsequently lapsed.
