Rarely do properties such as this appear on the housing market offered with vacant possession, and situated within this picturesque village of Ebchester, County Durham. This wonderful Grade 2 listed Georgian Old Rectory which was formally housed the clergy of St Ebbas Church close by, and is situated in the perfect village location.
This five or potentially six bedroom detached property occupies a delightful village plot, set back from the main road and accessed by a small private driveway to the main house with a separate wing.
From the main hallway, this house exudes character and history and has been the subject of some reconfiguration during the period of its life as a Church Rectory.
The ground floor comprises of a number of rooms to include, The Long Room, which extends from the rear of the property to the front of the house and has been used as a drawing and music room. There is a larger sitting room to the rear of the property with access leading into the kitchen and then utility rooms to the front and side of the house.
From the return staircase and up to the first floor there are five bedrooms to include a master bathroom and these rooms are positioned to both front and rear elevations of this splendid property.
There is a separate wing to the house which on the ground floor is currently a garage and what would have been formerly the stable block for the house. The first floor accessed by narrow stairs is currently been used by the owners as an art studio and is large, bright and full of natural light. This spacious room, subject to planning, could easily be remodelled to become a separate granny flat or further bedrooms.
Externally, there are gardens to the front, which includes parking for two or three cars. The rear garden is large and expansive with larger trees, plants and laid lawn. This garden is slightly tiered from the rear accessed from a small conservatory extension.
The side elevation of the house boasts a wonderful "secret garden" which we were lucky enough to experience in the sun when surveying the house.
With charm and warmth, this property is a steal and requires modernising, updating and redecoration throughout, but its our humble opinion that this property, should it be reconfigured to suit modern requirements, would make a fantastic outstanding family home set within a star location!
Close to Durham City, Newcastle and with excellent road-links to the North, South and beyond with excellent schools and local amenities close by and further community facilities at near by Rowlands Gill.
