Full description

*** NO CHAIN INVOLVED *** A stunning five bedroom detached Georgian cottage offering well proportioned accommodation spread over three floors. The owners inform Robinsons that the main house dates back to the 1760's and was formerly used as a 'Toll House'. The properties charm and character is immediately apparent on entering the property, whilst the position and location further add to the properties overall appeal.
Being set back from the seafront it enjoys impressive sea views, whilst the property also sides onto Seaton Park with equally pleasing views over the Park. The property is in the Seaton Carew conservation area and with this in mind, the owners have lovingly improved the property with careful consideration going into retaining the original character. This includes replacement 'Georgian' style single glazed windows, most of which are of a 'sash' style and has 'barn' style internal doors. The owners were presented with the Hartlepool Civic Society Conservation Award in 2008. This extremely spacious home enjoys plenty of natural light from it's many windows and has a versatile layout which can only be truly appreciated upon internal inspection.

The property is approached via a ‘Victorian cobble’ style road from the seafront. A long matching driveway via double opening timber gates leads to the private courtyard which provides ample off street car parking and leads to the larger than usual attached garage. The property itself has a long entrance hall which leads to an inviting reception hall and cloakroom/WC. The generous lounge has a rustic brick fireplace with ‘coal’ effect gas fire and has feature beams to the ceiling. The hallway gives further access to a useful sitting room as well as the kitchen/breakfast room which measures approximately 22ft in length with refitted units, free standing cooking range and integrated fridge and dishwasher. This in turn leads to a delightful study room. On the first floor are three good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom and third bedroom enjoying a sea view, whilst bedroom two enjoys views over the Park. The large bathroom/WC has a five piece coloured suite including a separate shower cubicle. To the second floor are two further good sized bedrooms which enjoy superb views. Externally to the side of the property is a secluded patio which has a westerly aspect and should be a sun trap in the summer months. To the rear of the cottage is an enclosed patio garden which has a block paved and ‘Victorian cobble’ style area for ease of maintenance. Other features include gas fired central heating via a combination boiler to all floors. A rare opportunity for a prospective buyer with few homes offering the space, location and position on offer.
