A quaint 3 bed terrace on Richardson Street, Heaton. Originally forming part of the collectively known ‘Railway Terraces’ this street oozes charm and character. The home is priced to accommodate some cosmetic updating but benefits from a smart upstairs bathroom and 3 bedrooms.
Located a stones throw from the abundant amenities of Chillingham Road, Richardson Street offers the best of both worlds, being close enough to the hustle and bustle but so full of character you could feel you were a million miles away. Like the other ‘Railway Terraces on Spencer, Cleghorn and Ebor Street this charming terrace sits behind it’s uniform town garden wall complete with attractive metal balustrading and even retains a metal boot scrape. The home enjoys a traditional layout with upstairs bathroom but also includes stair access to a fully boarded out and plastered loft space which may double up as a study and additional storage space. Having been recently rented out this home would benefit from some cosmetic updating, however the current owners have in the past upgraded the full heating system, replaced the bathroom and undertaken much plastering work throughout the property.
Upon entering the home you’re greeted by a spacious hallway with laminate flooring and neutral decor and there is ample room for storing shoes, boots and coats. Leading off the hall is a tidy living room finished in the same neutral decor with laminate flooring and including a gas fire and surround. Adjacent to the living room is a well proportioned dining room which again is decorated in the same neutral tone with laminate flooring and includes combi boiler to one of the chimney alcoves. Connected to the dining room is a generous kitchen with terracotta coloured ceramic tiles to the floor and a patchwork of multicoloured tiles to the walls. There are a range of white wall and base units and a free standing oven. The kitchen looks out over a sizeable rear yard that includes a useful outhouse and timber double doors offering car access should you need it.
To the first floor is large bathroom with shower cubicle and electric shower as well as a separate bath, sink and pedestal. The walls are finished in attractive stone coloured ceramic with border detail and the floor is a low maintenance slate coloured laminate. Making up the remainder of the first floor are 3 good sized bedrooms, all of which will take a double bed and wardrobe. There is also stair access to the 3rd floor which offers the added benefit of a fully boarded out and plastered loft space with 2 roof lights.
