Beautiful single storey 5 bed-roomed detached family home tucked away in the most sought after part of Ashington in Northumberland. The property has been recently re-decorated to a high standard allowing the new owners to simply unpack and move in. Featuring uPVC windows and doors throughout, gas central heating, mains electric, mains sewerage and solid wood doors internally, the home also benefits from a quality conversion of the double garage into a games room, perfect for entertaining your children and guests alike. The lovely garden even sports a hot tub!
Ashington is one of the largest towns in Northumberland and is located in the Woodhorn and coastal region of the county. The town offers a good range of independent and national retailers with a market day being held every Tuesday. Ashington is also well served by pubs and cafes and boasts a spectacular new sport and leisure centre. At one time Ashington was known as the largest mining village in the world and, although the mines closed in 1988, Ashington is justifiably proud of its history which is remembered at the nearby Woodhorn Museum. Ashington has two country parks, Wansbeck Riverside Country Park and the Queen Elizabeth II Country Park at Woodhorn.
Ashington is also a pleasant drive to some of Northumberland’s most spectacular coastal towns and villages including Amble, Craster, Seahouses and Bamburgh. The market town of Morpeth with access to the East Coast railway line is just 6 miles away and Newcastle City Centre with its vibrant Quayside, nightlife, theatre and fabulous shopping just 18 miles away. Ashington is also well served by bus routes to and from Northumberland and North Tyneside.
To the front of the home the parking area is completely block paved. Going through the front door, the long split hallway leads from the front to the back of the bungalow and includes an airing cupboard, a cloaks cupboard and two loft access hatches.
The large lounge is very light and bright, courtesy of windows and doors to three sides – a large bay window overlooking the rear garden, French doors providing access to the garden, and another window. This lovely designer lounge includes an oak effect laminate floor and a feature red brick fireplace with electric fire.
The dining room is a good size, and because of other dining options in the property it could equally be used as a play area for children or a library. French doors also provide access to the rear garden.
The newly upgraded kitchen/diner is very bright, courtesy of high gloss stone coloured base and wall units, grey splash-back tiling around the kitchen, and a large white ceramic sink, and solid wood work surfaces, all of which reflect back light coming through the opening, which looks into the conservatory, and from spotlights in the ceiling. The kitchen features an electric under bench oven, a five burner gas hob and space for an American-style fridge-freezer.
An archway leads through to the conservatory-style extension, which is a lovely big entertaining space, with French doors to the rear garden.
The utility room is a very useful space, with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Solid wood work surfaces complement the wall and base units, and the same grey splash-back tiling continues on from the kitchen.
A door from the utility room takes you into the games room, complete with a bar in the corner, solid wood flooring and half wood panelling to the walls. This is a fabulous entertaining space and a great games room. However, the room could easily be converted back to its former use as a double garage.
The home’s master bedroom is a great space which features Cavendish fitted storage, a large window and French doors leading to the rear garden. The room also benefits from a lovely en-suite, with stone effect tiling to the walls, a low maintenance ceiling, a shower cubicle with waterfall shower and bi-fold door, a close coupled WC, and a pedestal washbasin.
The second bedroom is a nicely presented spacious double, again with Cavendish fitted storage and again with a window overlooking the rear garden. Bedroom three is another bright and light double bedroom, with a window overlooking the rear garden. Bedroom four is also a spacious light double bedroom, benefiting from a built-in wardrobe.
The final bedroom is currently fitted with a futon-style bed and with Cavendish wardrobes, but this room would equally suit being an office, a snug or a hobby room. This room also includes French doors opening out to the rear dining area.
The family bathroom is a spacious well-designed room with stone effect tiles on the walls, tiles to the floor and a low maintenance ceiling. Alongside the unusual round shower cubicle with electric shower, the bathroom features a double-ended Whirlpool bath with centre taps, a pedestal washbasin, a close-coupled WC, a lit mirror and a window overlooking the side of the home.
Externally gardens run around the home, as well as block paving. The rear garden provides a good sized lawn and two decked areas – one is great for sitting out and following the sun, the other is equipped with electricity and a hot tub. The whole garden is secure for children and pets.
