A substantial and impressive double bay-fronted late-Victorian detached family residence situated on a large plot on Elmfield Road next to Consett Golf Club, with elevated views over Blackhill and the Derwent Valley beyond.
Built in the early 1900's, the house has been sympathetically improved by the current and previous owners to offer a spacious and charming family home that retains many original features, such as high ceilings with cornice work, stained glass, and traditional cast fireplaces. The accommodation briefly comprises, on the ground floor: entrance lobby, hall, sitting room, dining room, family room with multi-fuel burner, kitchen and utility room/W.C. Off the first floor landing there are three double bedrooms, a fourth bedroom/study and a bathroom fitted with a freestanding bath and a shower cubicle. There are also further stairs up to the second floor, which has a large two-tier bedroom with its own lounge area and a further bathroom that leads through to the remaining loft storage space. Externally there are three outbuildings and a lean-to, to one side of the house, and an attractive patio and lawned garden with borders and a large log store to the other; an expansive, tiered garden with a level patio and lawned area immediately to the front, with a retaining wall and pleasant lawned walkway down to the rest of the garden, which has a small stream and pond, and several mature trees. There is a double block-paved drive adjacent to the house, across from a detached garage with further parking space immediately over the lane.
Elmfield Road has traditionally been one of the more sought-after locations in Consett, being close to the golf club and offering a rural aspect while still being within walking distance of the town centre and its facilities. It is also just a downhill walk or short drive to Blackhill and further to Shotley Bridge, with the scenic Derwent Walk and Coast-to-Coast cycle routes easily accessible. For commuting purposes the A691, A692, A694 and A68 provide major road links to Durham (14 miles), Newcastle (14 miles) and Hexham (17 miles). There are several local Primary Schools while Consett Academy Secondary School is approximately 0.7 miles away, close to the new leisure centre.
