THINK of Acomb and chances are you’ll conjure up an image of staunch 1930s semis.

Well this one in Front Street couldn’t be more different, and if beams are your thing we could be about to introduce your dream cottage.

This stunning 500-year-old semi-detached property offers three bedrooms, a generous lounge, a large dining kitchen and is full of original oak beams and features.

Renovated during the late 1980s to a high standard the house still offers plenty of character and is Grade II listed. Located in a private road just off Front Street, the property also offers an easy route into the city centre.

So let’s take a look at what’s inside. Well, we begin with an entrance lobby that gives immediate access to the heart of the home, namely a large dining kitchen.

In here oak beams dominate the ceiling and there is ample space for dining. Although the units are perfectly functional you’ll probably want to change them for a fitted kitchen, but at this price you should have plenty left over for that.

The ground floor is also home to the well-proportioned lounge, which boasts a cast iron fireplace encased in an elegant period surround within a feature alcove. Completing the ground floor is a rear lobby and a separate WC.

On the first floor you will find a large landing space leading to the master bedroom featuring a built-in storage cupboard. There are two further double bedrooms, one with a store cupboard and it is in these rooms where the cottage really shows its age with fabulous oak wall beams.

You don’t see that very often in Acomb. Finally the three piece bathroom completes the inventory.

Outside the house is the huge benefit of a large garage with lights and power points and an off street parking spot.

Just behind the property is a delightful garden, mainly paved with planted beds.

So there you are, country living within the city’s boundary and all its amenities close to hand. Somebody’s wish list has just been granted. Call it a belated Easter present from us.
