Agents Notes

Rarely does a property with such an executive and individual essence enter the market on Lorimers Close in Peterlee which is situated near to the newly constructed Academy at Shotton Hall which scores Outstanding in Ofsted reports. This overwhelming property has been brilliantly crafted, enhanced and altered by the current owners to provide potential purchasers with four generous bedrooms and a potential for a fifth bedoom by means of a simple conversion of the mezzanine lounge area with its very own balcony overlooking the southerly facing rear gardens. Furthermore, the vibrant landscaped gardens to the rear of the home offer the new owners with a small timber bridge over their own stream offering access into the woodland area and a larger than average log style cabin with electrical points ideal for a home office. No corners have been cut to make sure that this rare quality of residence is up there with the best of the best. Why not arrange a viewing through with the Peterlee branch to see exactly what we are talking about!
