    The tenure of this property is Freehold. We believe the house to be of solid wall construction, to be connected to mains gas, electricity, water, and drainage, and to KCOM for the purposes of landline telephone but not Internet broadband.


    All carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings are included in the sale.


    This property has been this family's home since 1960. We understand the property was built during the early 1920s. After the First World War land was sold off by the North Eastern Railway for house building. Some soldiers returning home from the first world war were given a plot of land and a railway carriage to live in, and many went on to build themselves a house on the land, which is why the houses nearby vary considerably in style. Amazingly, the railway carriage for this plot of land remains in place and currently serves as a garden shed, although it was of course lived in until the house was eventually built. The railway carriage is shown on 1919 maps but the house is not shown.

    The house was originally detached until the later construction of number 1147. There is small gap between 1145 and 1147 but to all intents and purposes the houses are joined. However, this does mean that the dividing walls between the two houses is likely to be significantly thicker than a typical party wall between two semi-detached houses. The front door was originally behind a storm porch, which was later extended out to create a larger hallway.

    The garden contained seven apple trees which were even older than the house, and one or two of those trees remain in the garden. They were planted as part of the summer groves of The Priory and survived the building of the marshalling yards. Beneath the left-hand boundary hedge is a low concrete wall which is marked with the builder’s initials and the year, 1924. The front boundary originally had two gates in the front wall. One where the left-hand gate is currently and second perpendicular to the front door.

    1147 was originally Taylors grocer’s shop, then Smith’s haberdashery shop, and finally Oyston’s estate agent. The shop was later converted to a house. 1143 was also built after 1145. The 1939 Register does not include 1143 but does include 1147. 1143 was built as a butcher’s shop. Butchering had been carried out at 1141 and 1141A with a stable, pig sty, chicken coops and a glasshouse all predating the building of 1143.

    Beyond the rear garden there used to be a long field that belonged to Priory Farm, past which was a cinder track and the sidings for Inward Yard. The sidings and steam trains are now of course distant memories replaced by modern housing.
