A fantastic and rare opportunity to purchase part of an historic warehouse converted by its current owner into a unique, contemporary and open plan style property, with loads of space for living and storage. Built in 1905 and owned by the Pease family, it was originally part of the Northern Echo printing works and boasts a desirable river view.

The property is now one of five homes within this exclusive development, which has gated access leading into an attractive, communal parking area and garden. To the rear, there is a second gated access with additional off-street parking and small garden. Each property is allocated two parking spaces, with room for visitors.

Internally, the property is fully open plan and would appeal to an artistic/creative/business person, needing plenty of space for work or exercise, as well as comfortable living areas.

Entrance Hall - Ground floor w/c and wash-basin, a large cloaks cupboard, an enclosed utility room, with washing machine, fridge/freezer, plenty of shelving and floor space for step-ladders, etc. There is also under-stair storage housing the underfloor heating manifold, with plenty of space for storage of household equipment, etc.

Open Plan Lounge/Dining Area - Capacious area suitable for comfortable living, with room for a very large dining table for entertaining or work surface for business or creative projects. In addition, there is a Yorkshire, smokeless-zone-compliant log burner, with log storage built outside. Stairs leading to:

Kitchen Area - A well-designed and practical kitchen, with plenty of storage units supplied by Howdens, a peninsular breakfast bar, gas hob and two built-in electric ovens. It also houses a combination, condensing gas boiler, which is serviced annually and has nearly eight years remaining on its guarantee. This supplies gas for the underfloor heating on the ground floor, and radiators on the first floor. External door leading to the rear courtyard

First Floor - Large bathroom with bath, walk-in shower, low-level WC and wash basin with cabinet underneath. There is also built-in shelving for storage and a towel warmer. The bathroom is heated via Devi underfloor electric heating.

The sizeable open plan area contains a double Bedroom, with wardrobe space for clothes and shoes. Currently, the rest of the first floor is used as an office, exercise and another lounge area. Again, this could be used as a creative space, but also has potential for additional bedrooms/bathrooms.

Bedroom Areas / Second Floor - Divided into two loft areas, with ample eaves storage and large Velux windows. One area is used as a second double bedroom, with access via a paddle-tread staircase, with book shelves, etc. The beautiful vaulted ceilings have exposed timber beams and trusses, which is an extremely attractive feature, creating a fresh, airy feel throughout the whole property.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the uniqueness of this property, which is close to the town centre, North Road and mainline railway stations, bus routes and the A66 and A1(M).

Second Floor -

Externally - Communal informal gardens, with mature trees, plants and wild-life pond.
