1960s living in the north east of England, courtesy of this 1960s architect-designed four-bedroom detached property in Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees, North Yorkshire.
We stumbled on this place by accident, whilst looking for another property in the area. We actually think this one is better, built around 50 years ago by an unnamed architect and generally remaining faithful to that original design, whilst still being updated as a modern family home (including a sympathetic extension).
It’s described as a ‘split level family house’, set over three floors, with some impressive rear views to the River Tees, as well as a ‘highly regarded’ location within the town. Plenty of original features too, as that wonderful period staircase certainly shows, as well as the original built-in storage areas and lots of open plan spaces, plus some impressive large double glazed picture windows enhancing those views.
In terms of specifics, you get a ground floor featuring an entrance hall, cloakroom/WC and modern family breakfast kitchen with separate utility. On the upper floor the ‘light and airy’ living area enjoys floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river and tiered timber decked terracing, leading to an open plan study area. On the lower floor the master suite enjoys a large double bedroom, separate dressing room and modern en-suite. There are three further bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.
Two driveways approach the front of the property one via a sweeping tarmac driveway and the second via gravelled access under the viaduct. Both lead up to a detached double garage. To the front is an area of lawn with shrubbery and flower planting and to the side is an enclosed lawn garden.
At the rear a tiered timber decked terrace with balustrade surround leads down to two further terraces below and at the bottom of the garden there is an area of open lawn which opens to the riverside front and fishing rights.
