The village is also well placed to give easy access to the delightful Whitburn beach which is only a short walk away and perfect for families and dog walking. The property is also located close to Sunderland City Centre with its shops, cafes and restaurants.

Boasting close to 3,400 Sq ft of internal living space the accommodation comprises: generous reception hallway with ‘Parque’ flooring, mahogany return staircase with ground floor WC, cloakroom and door to rear garden; impressive drawing room which measures 26ft with fireplace and beautiful hand-painted, listed ceiling with a formalised pattern of marigolds and chrysanthemums; family room/snug; dining room with French doors to the rear terrace and garden; kitchen/breakfast room with hand-painted units, central island and integrated appliances with access to orangery; utility room; orangery with tiled flooring and French doors leading to the rear gardens. The generous first floor landing leads to four double bedrooms, the master with contemporary, re-fitted, fully tiled shower room and a family bathroom with separate WC.

Externally, the property benefits from a lawned front garden with hedged boundaries and wrought ironmongery. To the rear, a delightful garden which is laid mainly to lawn with well stocked borders, shrubs and paved patios with access to a stone built, double storey former coach house which is now utilised as a double garage and has potential to be converted into a studio or annex accommodation (subject to simple planning and building consent).
