An outstanding opportunity to acquire the original Streetgate Farm, Farmhouse, a beautiful stone built detached four bedroom home, boasting an attached ground floor annex which in itself proposes a multitude of possibilities; self-contained living for a relative or teenager, home office/studio, or maybe just the chance to fully enjoy the generous family living space.

Highly regarded as a location, Streetgate retains the appeal of small village, composed of eclectic and individual homes, bordering beautiful countryside parks, woodland and arable farms, yet just minutes from local amenities within Sunniside/Whickham and strong regional transport links via The A1 Motorway, onwards to Newcastle City Centre, Gateshead Team Valley & The Metro Centre. The layout of the Farmhouse follows; entrance hallway, lounge, sitting room, dining room/kitchen with traditional passage, staircase rising to the first floor landing, master bedroom, two further double size bedrooms and family bathroom. The ground floor annex is linked to the main house via a connecting door to the sitting room, with an independent entrance hallway, lounge, kitchen, double bedroom and full bathroom suite. Mature private gardens lay to the front of the home with two patio sun terraces, whilst twin timber gates open to provide off street driveway parking for up to three cars. An open ingle nook to the lounge with cast iron wood burner is a genuine highlight, alongside the sizeable kitchen/dining room with open aspect to the sitting room which creates a fantastic space for families and entertaining.
