    This impressive and spacious period home is full of character and tastefully decorated throughout, providing versatile accommodation over two floors.

    Entering the property through double doors you will feel the pressure of modern life melting away, the welcoming hallway leads to an elegant family room with chandeliers, William Morris wallpaper, stunning fireplace, and dual aspect sash windows with shutters – the current owners have celebrated many family occasions in here over the years!

    A traditional door leads to a small powder room and WC, continuing along the hallway there are two further reception rooms, the study has a fresh modern interior that compliments the period features, the room is a good size with gas fire and window seating overlooking the front garden. The second reception room is bright and spacious with two large windows, and decorated in neutral colours, the feature fireplace with original mantle and log burner is the focal point of the room and creates a relaxing area for all the family. The original servants hatch remains and connects to the kitchen.

    Heading back along the hallway there is a large utility room fitted with cream base and wall units, sink, electric oven and hob and plumbing for washing machine, this leads into the country style kitchen fitted with bespoke units, Belfast sink, Cream electric AGA and free-standing butchers block, the perfect spot catching up over coffee and freshly baked cake. The original servants bell sits above the hatch leading into the second reception room. The conservatory is just off the kitchen and enjoys views of the well planted garden. A barn style door from the kitchen takes you into a large boot room with built in storage and seating, this is a must have in any country home, perfect in the winter for those muddy boots! This leads to the rear of the property where there is a secluded courtyard with flowerpots bursting with colour.

    To the first floor there is a small WC and spacious landing that leads to the four generous bedrooms, all of which have been recently decorated and fitted with new carpets so there should be no squabbles over who gets the biggest room – although the master bedroom is significantly bigger and has the potential to create a en-suite and dressing room from the adjoining storage room so this one should definitely be for the grown-ups!

    The bathroom has been recently renovated to create a luxurious space with free standing bath, large walk-in shower, a sleek double vanity unit with His and Hers sinks, traditional style radiators with fitted towel rails and underfloor heating complete this space.

    They say “it’s what’s inside that counts……” but this charming period property has extensive grounds, equestrian facilities and gardens that are just as impressive as the inside.

    The large gravel driveway has parking for several cars, a detached barn with double doors is currently used as a garage but has potential to create a separate annex, home office or workshop. There is a small courtyard with two outbuildings, seating area and access to garden where the current owners have lovingly created an English Country Garden full of flower beds, pathways edged with wildflowers, secluded areas for seating and an allotment with views of the paddock and land.

    The land extends to around 12 acres of good quality grazing land and is neatly contained and in most parts newly fenced. It is complemented by stables and a yard area providing adequate onsite visitor/horsebox parking with 3 storage hay barns together with an all weather riding arena, 3 all weather turnout paddocks, a grazing track system ‘paddock paradise’ and hardcored central path to all paddocks.

    The facilities are accessed via a separate gate off the main road and leads to a spacious hardcore parking area. Through a second gate there is an enclosed safe yard area with timber buildings each set on a concrete base comprising:

    1st storage Barn 4.57m x 5.49m (15’ x 18’)

    Timber stable block comprising 3 stables each 3.66m x 3.66 m (12’ x 12’)

    2nd Storage Barn 5.33 m x 2.90 m (17’6” x 9’6”) suitable for trailer storage

    3rd Full height barn 7.16 m x 3.66 m (23’6 x 12’) suitable for 3.5 ton horsebox storage

    4th stable 4.57 m x 3.35 m (15’ x 11’)

    A muck trailer can be hired locally and a muck trailer ramp is insitu for easy wheelbarrow access.

    Three of the paddocks are all weather stoned and close to the stable yard, perfect for those horses requiring restricted grass, restricted movement, worming days and for mud free winter turnout. All have safe horse fencing and are electrified with horsecote.

    In total there are currently 9 separate grazing paddocks (11 possible) of various sizes ranging from 1/4 acre to 2.5 acres. Most are interlinked with each other by gates providing the ability to create larger grazing areas as required and rotational grazing. The Fencing is a combination of safety tornado horse high tensile wire netting around the full perimeter and is 5.5 feet high. The internal fencing is mainly horsecote permanent high tensile safety electric wire.

    A stoned track leads you from the stable yard , past the arena and all weather paddocks and extends up the full length of the land to all paddock gateways providing easy turnout in winter.
    Proceeding up the hill stunning views open up across the Derwent Valley. Here there are 3 level paddocks around 3.5 acres in total. This area also has a fenced track system ‘paddock paradise’ which extends to around 350m in length around a circular route. The grass track is around 12’ wide fenced by electric horsecote fencing. The track is used for restrictive grazing/ natural movement or for safe offroad circuit fitness training by the current owner.

    The purpose built arena is around 20m x 40 m and has a firm sand, fibre and rubber crumb mix, is well drained and fenced with post and rail. It is sheltered down one side by adjacent trees.

    There is mains metered water supply with various water points with taps to grass paddocks, all weather paddocks and stable yard.

    There is currently no mains electricity however an internal connection could be installed easily from the house. Lighting is currently provided to stabling from energy efficient bulbs, powered by a leisure battery and inverter system. Wiring has been installed from the 1st barn to the arena where a flood light is installed for usage of the arena on dark evenings during the winter months. This light is currently powered via a portable generator.

    If that's not enough to keep you active, then there's plenty to do on the doorstep, especially if you love the outdoors!

    You’re just minutes from the Derwent Walk, which is an old railway line that is also part of the C2C cycle route (horses are welcome and the path is perfect for hacking). The Reservoir is less than 15 minutes by car and has some beautiful walks and a haven for sailing enthusiasts and anglers.

    The village of Shotley Bridge village is within walking distance and has a charming range of local shops and amenities including a primary school (infant and junior schools), a fantastic tennis and cricket club. Consett town centre is 1.5 miles away and provides a wider range of shops, supermarkets and sporting facilities. It is well positioned for access to Newcastle and Durham, both within 16 miles, making it an excellent location from which to commute.

    This impressive period property gives you all the benefits of an idyllic country home with versatile accommodation and land – without the sacrifices which come with a more remote rural setting!
