The Nook is a unique, charming, and spacious Art Deco style property set within easy access of the town centre whilst still being in a quiet residential area of Chester le Street. Built in the 1930’s, the property has been refurbished to an incredibly high standard, and provides a wealth of character throughout, combining period features with modern finishes complementing the elegant and well proportioned rooms. The main entrance to the property is via the original arched wooden door with stained glass detailing, which leads into the reception vestibule. A paned oak door from here allows access into the spacious hallway, which features an impressive oak return staircase. The hallway also benefits from a useful under stair storage cupboard and downstairs cloakroom, which is fitted with a low level WC and wall hung wash hand basin, whilst being heated by a stainless steel towel rail. Both hallway and cloakroom are fitted with Amtico oak style flooring.

Accessed via a further glass paned oak door from the hallway, the drawing room is situated to the right hand side and is a good sized light and airy room. In addition to the gas central heating system, there is a focal gas flame stove set upon a tiled hearth with the original carved wooden surround. The drawing room is flooded with natural light courtesy of the singular arched window, double glazed handmade bay windows which incorporate the original stained glass detailing alongside a fully glazed door enabling access to the South facing garden.

Adjacent to the drawing room is the sitting room, which is a further spacious and versatile room located to the rear overlooking the garden. Again, featuring handmade double glazed bay windows with original stained glass detailing, this room could be utilised for a number of purposes including a home office or ground floor bedroom.

The beautifully presented and spacious contemporary kitchen/family room is fitted with a combination of cream and walnut effect high gloss base and wall mounted storage units, which are topped with granite worktops and incorporate a composite one and a half bowl sink with mixer tap and drainer unit. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and washing machine, whilst there is space for a freestanding range cooker with extractor fan over and plumbed American style fridge/freezer. Featuring under floor heating, the kitchen/family room includes high quality tiled flooring throughout. This generous space offers ample room for a dining table, and is lit via recessed downlights. There is an electrically operated hardwood orangery roof lantern and bi-fold doors leading to the stunning rear gardens. The kitchen provides additional living space and is flooded with natural light, whilst the windows to the front elevation overlook the green.

Returning to the hallway, stairs rise to the first floor landing which features a spacious and useful storage cupboard, as well as a single glazed paned window to the ceiling, flooding the space with light via the Velux skylight in the attic.
