A spectacular opportunity has arisen to acquire this extensive corner positioned detached residence which is situated within the Oakerside Park area of Peterlee, only a short walk to the nearby Castle Eden Dene Nature Reserve which offers beautiful woodland walks culminating at the award winning beaches or the highly acclaimed Castle Eden golf course. The property has been extended, in the not to distant past, to incorporate an additional garage which the owners have had constructed with double foundations to facilitate a further first floor extension. At the same time of the garage extension, pipework had been laid into the existing garage to facilitate a ground floor W/c, being mindful, if there were ever plans to convert the existing garage into a further reception room the introduction of the W/c would not be problematic.


The welcoming entrance includes an external double glazed door to the front of the home accompanied with a further double glazed window, a radiator and an internal door to the impressive lounge through dining room.

It is rare to acquire such an impressive residence which occupies a distinguished position within Oakerside Park with an abundance of land and further possibilities to extend and adapt the property to suit your requirements without the need to eventually move. At the front the vendors have extended the driveway to facilitate off street parking facilities for numerous vehicles and have also extended the residence with an additional garage. At the side, there is a larger proportion of land which the owners utilise for temporary caravan storage before frequenting on short trips.


The breathtaking predominantly south facing private rear gardens have been landscaped to feature beautiful lawns surrounded with hedgerow, an access gate to the side and a door to the garage. Paved patio areas leading from the kitchen offer an ideal area for al-fresco dining in the warm summer months.


The current owners have extended the garage to create two individual adjoining garages with roller doors for secure parking. Whilst the additional garage was added to the residence, careful consideration was given in the process of the planning to place double foundations into the garage in preparation for a further first storey extension subject to necessary planning and building approval. Similarly, electrics, water and foul waste pipework was integrated into the existing garage to facilitate a ground floor W/c should the need arise to convert the garage into an additional reception room in the future.
