West Nook is a detached home of tremendous character built in 1850 and tucked away in a popular village.

Highlights of the impressive property are the sitting room with lovely original fireplace, bright and airy kitchen with rooflights and delightful back garden.

The double-fronted house has tremendous kerb appeal, built in red sandstone and with a path through the front garden to an entrance door flanked by bay windows.

Inside, a hallway laid with original tiles leads to the sitting room with multi-fuel stove in a feature fireplace.

The family room provides access to the rear hallway, also laid with original tiles, and the large kitchen which boasts a bank of windows enhanced by two large rooflights.

A range-style cooker is set in a sandstone surround and the kitchen units are finished in contemporary grey with a ceramic floor in a similar shade.

Going upstairs, a large window overlooks the back garden and fields beyond while a galleried landing has doors to bedrooms and bathroom.

Two double bedrooms overlook the front garden and at the back of the house are a smaller single bedroom and the family bathroom.

In addition to the front garden, and block paving for parking, a well-maintained rear garden has lawn, borders, patio and a brick-built store shed.

West Nook, The Green, Houghton, is for sale at £275,000 from Hayward Tod, tel. 01228 810300.
