A unique and substantial detached period home with a large garden and superb views, situated in the semi-rural village of Ebchester.
This interesting and surprising house has had a variety of uses since it was originally built as a Co-Operative store in the 1920s, and is a fine example of the architecture of the period. With gas central heating and double glazing, the building has been converted into a charming family home, providing spacious accommodation over three floors; the ground floor has a large entrance hall with an open cloak room, a study/music room, bathroom, open plan kitchen/family/dining room (with a Range-style stove) and a 22' wide lounge (with an Inglenook feature fireplace and log-burning stove). There are four bedrooms to the first floor, an en suite bath and shower room (off the master bedroom) and a family bathroom. The lower ground floor offers versatile accommodation that could easily be made into a self-contained apartment or used as a home office, workshop or studio, and is configured for disabled access; it currently comprises entrance hall, two office rooms, a W.C., a garden room and a cellar. There is a flagged and walled forecourt to the front of the house, and a parking area to the side that leads to the village green, while to the side of the house there is a large and relatively secluded enclosed and mature lawned garden with a patio and further space to the rear.
Vindamora Road is situated on the A694 (often referred to as the 'Low Road'), which links Ebchester to Consett and to Newcastle, approximately 13 miles away, making it an excellent base for commuters. The village has some local facilities, with further shops and amenities available in nearby Shotley Bridge, and a more comprehensive range in Consett town centre (approximately 3.5 miles distant). It is also close to the border with Northumberland with access to the north and south on the A68.
