Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Jonathon Lewis have pleasure in offering to the market this Rarely available, outstanding four storey Townhouse situated on the desirable Bath Terrace, Seaham. This Grade II listed residence is situated on the picturesque seafront with unspoilt views up and down the East Durham coastline, the lighthouse, harbour entrance and beaches. The property is a fine example of Georgian architecture and grandeur with its generously proportioned rooms, bay windows and high ceilings offering a light and airy feel throughout.

This iconic property is steeped in history dating back to the 1830 when the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry envisaged a wonderful and magnificent town designed by the famous 19th-century English architect, John Dobson. A shortage of cash prevented this grand plan and better quality houses were only built on North and Bath Terrace. John Dobson became the most noted architect in the North of England. During his career he designed more than 50 churches and 100 private houses. However, he is best known for designing Newcastle Central Train Station and for his work with Richard Grainger developing the centre of Newcastle in a neoclassical style. Bath Terrace was styled on Georgian Townhouses in London and Bath, and has a unique place in Seaham Harbour's heritage as one of the finest Georgian terraces in the North East.

In more recent years the property has been sympathetically updated retaining many of it's original period features, with gas central heating by way of a combi boiler, double glazing, and an updated traditional kitchen and bathrooms. The property consists of three grand reception rooms, dining room, three large bedrooms to the first floor, modern bathrooms, and spacious attic bedrooms. Externally to the rear the property benefits from a walled courtyard with workshop and log store, two car drive and beautiful landscaped gardens. The views from the property North and South are simply outstanding. Bath Terrace is the perfect location for strolls along the sandy beaches, quaint cafes, the Terrace Green, shops, bistros and newly redeveloped marina. The property is also nearby to many local amenities including supermarkets, banks, the railway station and good schools. The area of Seaham offers easy access for commuting to the A19 travelling both North and Southbound, is only minutes from Sunderland City Centre, approximately 30 minutes from Newcastle upon Tyne and 20 minutes from Durham.
