Dolhpin House in Tynemouth dates back to 1634. It's an impressive period house, and it's easy to be deceived by it's modest exterior. It's TARDIS-like interior is hugely spacious and has been modernised in sophisticated yet sympathetic style.
It once had a very famous owner too. It was once the property of William Pitt the Younger, Britain's Prime Minister between 1759 and 1806. Pitt was best known for leading Britain in the great wars against France and Napoleon.
It's standing by a stroke of luck. The two adjoining properties were bombed during World War II, killing a priest and a spinster.
Restoring the property to its former glory has been a labour of love for the current owner, who spent around £48,000 when they bought the property in a dilapidated state back in 1994.
Now the owner is ready to downsize, and we're very pleased to offer the property for sale through our Whitley Bay branch.
