Full description


Occupying a prime position within the heart of central Gosforth is this highly impressive three-storey semi-detached family home, located on the very popular street North Avenue, close by to Gosforth High Street with its shops, banks and offices, as well as the superb local private schools.

The property was purchased by the current owners 40 years ago and is one of only a small number of houses with the added benefit of enjoying rear gardens facing on to the adjacent bowling green, tennis club and the spire of All Saints Church.

The rear view from the principal reception rooms, as well as the bedrooms upstairs, is exceptional, giving the feeling of a rural location with the beautiful open green and the peaceful environment of its neighbours. This is a particularly attractive feature of the house.

The house has a great deal of style and character with tall ceilings, lovely plasterwork, panelled doors, attractive windows and super fireplaces. The accommodation is set over three floors, is spacious and well-proportioned and is ideally presented for a family purchaser.

The accommodation to the property includes: a ground floor entrance porch, cloak room/wc, reception hallway with access to the delightful sitting room/drawing room to the front aspect and at the rear a lovely dining room. The family snug room is also to the rear of the house and the super breakfasting kitchen is situated to the front aspect, leading through to the side entrance hall and the utilities, as well as pantry and large laundry room.

To the first floor of the property, the master bedroom is a large, well-proportioned room, as well as there being three further good double bedrooms, a family bathroom, a separate wc and a separate shower room.

The stairs then continue to the second floor where there is an outstanding family bedsitting room, ideal for a teenager, stretching the depth of the house and providing a beautiful fifth bedroom. The second floor also accommodates three further rooms, as well as a store room and a bathroom/wc.

The house has the benefit of gas radiator central heating, mains electricity, water and drainage, as well as a number of high quality fitted wardrobes within the principal bedrooms.

Externally, the property accommodates a number of outbuildings, a large driveway providing ample on-site parking and a large double-length garage, at the rear of which is a useful conservatory and garden room.

The super west-facing front garden is beautifully presented with a flower and shrub garden and beech hedge boundaries, looking on to other high quality family homes within North Avenue.

The rear garden lies adjacent to the bowling green and the tennis club and is very neatly presented and well-stocked with flower and shrub borders, as well as beautiful lawned areas, ideal for families.

Number 17 North Avenue is a delightful, large, family home in a popular area of Gosforth, for which we strongly recommend an early viewing to avoid later disappointment.

The property has mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.
