- Introduction -

Always dreamed of owning your home? With easy access to Newcastle City Centre, an abundance of local amenities and the gorgeous Quayside only a stone’s throw away; why not say yes to this three-bed home?


- What the owner says -

It is on a quiet cul-de-sac near to local amenities such as a pub, café, shops, takeaways and gyms. Close to a good bus link to Metro Centre, Gateshead and Newcastle. The property is well situated for access to the A1, Gateshead and Newcastle. It is a lovely walk along riverside to Gateshead and Newcastle Quayside passing impressive Dunston Staiths a historic landmark where food markets are held in summer. It has partial river views to one bedroom. It is a 6 minute walk from a primary school and 25 minutes walk from a secondary and there is a children's play area on estate. There are various cycle routes you can do from house.

It is easy to maintain and economical for utility bills, the sitting has a large window that lets in lots of natural light and the other rooms are light and bright with neutral decoration. I like being able to eat in kitchen that leads to a conservatory which is a nice place to sit and relax. I like that the back garden has high fences so is private.
