The Limes, Front Street, Whitburn

Guide price - £995,000

Key Features

  • Grade II Listed period family home
  • Excellent location with picturesque village
  • Double-storey coach house showing obvious potential for conversion

2 The Limes, set back from Front Street in Whitburn, in a site of approximately 0.4 of an acre, is a magnificent, Grade II Listed, period, family home. The property is built in stone under a Western Slate roof and was purchased by the current owners circa 2007. The house is a beautiful example of a fine period property, which was originally one detached dwelling and was subdivided some decades ago into three individual houses.

The house has the benefit of a stone-built, double-storey former coach house leading adjacent to the rear of the boundary and the nearby Methodist church. This stone-built former coach house is now a double garage providing good on-site parking and access at the rear into a hardstanding area. Above there are further rooms and storage facilities and the building shows obvious potential to be converted into a studio or an independent relative’s accommodation, subject to simple planning and building consent.

2 The Limes is a fine home in such a period area of Whitburn which is well-known as being one of the most attractive and picturesque villages of South Tyneside.

The house has convenient and easy accessibility into Sunderland with its extensive shopping facilities as well as its Metro links throughout Tyne and Wear. The property also links easy into good road networks and many fabulous restaurants and sports facilities closeby. This is a highly desirable property in a beautiful area with a tremendous reputation and privileged historical importance.
