Even better than finding interesting period architecture is finding places with the interiors largely intact from the time of build. That’s the case with this five-bedroomed house in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.

It is a step back to the 1970s, most in terms of furnishings and layout. Ok, some of the bedrooms had some work in the 1980s and the kitchen looks like it has had some work. But aside from that, this house is very much a period piece. It’s also ‘situated on one of Gosforth’s most prestigious and sought after residential roads’, if postcodes are important to you.

The exterior has a largely-untouched period feel, the staircase and built-in wooden furnishings are very much of the era, as are the room dividers, light fittings and doors. Check out what looks like a child’s bedroom too – it could be right out of the 1980s.

Of course, Pieff sofas are only dressing and might not be staying, so the house overall is the headline act. For your money, you get a reception and hallway, a downstairs cloakroom/wc, a 23ft Sitting room, a 30ft living/dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room and utility room, with the upstairs offering a master bedroom, dressing room area, en-suite bathroom/wc, three further double bedrooms, a study/single bedroom and family bathroom/wc.

Externally, two driveways provide parking for two to three cars, with an enclosed courtyard to the side of the property and a car port. There’s also a garden, which is partly lawned and partly paved with well stocked borders and a timber shed.

How much? We don’t know as it is Price On Application. You’ll have to contact the agent for that. But with the size and location, this retro gem is unlikely to come cheap.
