We are delighted to be instructed as sole selling agents to market this splendid detached family residence located within County Durham.
Nestled within the highly regarded village of Brancepeth, County Durham and set within the boundary and precincts of the original Brancepeth Castle Grounds, where the Castle still remains and is occupied, and brings some significant history.
Designed and built a number of years ago buy our clients, the current and only owners this family home is of a rare and high quality. Set within 3/4 of an acre of private grounds this really is a truly peaceful location with the most tranquil and seductive nature of gardens elevated from the river stream flowing below accessed by wooden steps through a small enveloping woodland.
The orangery, timber framed but doubled glazed really sets this garden space off and absolutely compliments the main house and is certainly the internal hub of the home. The photographs and floorplans on this listing illustrate the offering accurately but the opportunity to be present within this property and grounds is one worth beholding and there is a magical lure sensed from entering into the private gates set back from the main road leading out of the Historic Durham City.
Internally the property boasts an array of living accommodation to include on the ground floor, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, ground floor bathroom and main staircase to the first floor. The property leads via the hallway to the kitchen which has been fully integrated and is of a commissioned bespoke design. From the kitchen is the breakfasting room and separate study with access into the large orangery which draws you out into the gardens described above. We can advise that with some remodelling, the entire kitchen, dining room and breakfasting room could be opened up to provide a more modern contemporary and functional living space for the lucky buyers.
The first floor consists currently of three double bedrooms all well appointed and a much larger Master bedroom included in this number. the bathroom has been bespoke fitted and is of excellent quality with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. leading from the Master Bedroom is what could be a spacious fourth bedroom above the double garage block with planning for Velux windows and separate staircase. Alternatively conversion of the whole garage block to a teenager annex or granny flat or more bedrooms is an straightforward possibility.
Situated close to Durham City with its historical Castle and Cathedral, University, Shops and National Rail Station, easy access to Newcastle upon Tyne and the local Arnison Shopping Centre, but retreated in more of a countryside setting, this really is a great purchase.
This really is a spectacular home within a picturesque location and we would advise serious and early viewing with us as sole agents.
