Then this Grangetown cottage could be the answer to your dreams.

The two-bedroom end terrace property in Grange Street South is due to go under the hammer at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham at the end of the month.

And with a guide price of just £20,000, you could snap up a bargain.

There is still time to inspect the house, too, with opening viewing sessions between 1.3pm and 2pm on Saturday, July 20; Wednesday, July 24; and Saturday July 27, ahead of the auction which is scheduled for 7pm on Tuesday, July 30.

The single-story property is conveniently located close to the Grangetown shopping area, as well as to the bus routes into the city centre. Park Lane Interchange and Sunderland Central railway station are both less than two miles away.

For families with young children, Grangetown Primary School is less than quarter of a mile away, while for those with secondary school age children, Southmoor Academy is only half a mile.

Both primary school and academy are rated as ‘good’ by Ofsted inspectors.
