Built in 1935 this striking black and white period property is believed to have been created for a successful entrepreneur of the time. Boasting a generous footprint, numerous original features and well-proportioned rooms, it has all the ingredients of a great family home.

The brick portico entrance opens into a sizeable hall. This significant space not only creates impact, it is large enough to be a reception room in its own right. Here stained glass windows, a herringbone parquet floor, wood panelling and the original staircase imbue the space with real character and ensure a warm welcome.

The three principal reception rooms are all south facing with high ceilings and large windows that make the most of their sunny orientation.

Like the hall, the sitting room has wood panelling on its walls and there are feature beams in the ceiling. The space opens into an adjoining sun room as well as into a large formal dining room with a bay window and intricate ceiling rose.

The charming morning room is the third reception room. This offers a versatile space which can serve as a study, family room or second sitting room.

The breakfasting kitchen has plenty of space for informal dining and food preparation. It is fitted with painted wall and base units and incorporates a breakfast bar. Appliances include an electric hob, a purifier and a double oven. There is a dishwasher, refrigerator and built-in cupboards provide further storage.

The utility room is a continuation of the kitchen. It has plumbing for a washing machine and space for two additional appliances if required. The porch serves as a practical boot room and there is also a wet room with shower, basin and WC.

As might be expected from a property of this stature, the landing is open and airy.

The three principal bedrooms which lead off it are wonderfully light and spacious. The master bedroom is served by a family bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath and a separate shower cubicle. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both have en suite facilities, with bedroom 2 also boasting a Jacuzzi bath and twin basins. The 4th bedroom has an en suite bathroom, while the fifth has a basin and a shower.

The Garth is situated within a quiet and leafy Conservation Area close to the bustling port town of Blyth. The town still has its own lighthouse, The Highlight, which was built in 1888 and is now preserved for the nation. Nearby is the popular South Beach, a picturesque stretch of golden sand dotted with beach huts - and the redeveloped Quayside which offers a peaceful open space.

Both Blyth high street and the Keel Row Shopping Centre have a good range of local shops and national retailers. The property is well situated for major road links to the north and south, as well as providing an easy commute to the city or the airport.

To the front of the property is a well-maintained, south-facing lawned garden. This quiet space is surrounded by mature trees which give a high degree of privacy and provide a leafy backdrop.

To the rear is an attractive private walled garden with a broad swathe of lawn, a charming summerhouse and a secluded spot for sitting and relaxing. An additional set of double gates give the option of a second entrance.

There is a detached brick-built double garage which occupies one corner and incorporates a garden store as well as a tool store.
