Seldom does the opportunity arise to purchase such an outstanding residential property situated in one of the most sought-after residential locations of Durham City. This detached three storey dwelling has been impressively refurbished by the current occupiers and provides luxury modern living accommodation within an attractive period property and set-in grounds extending to over half an acre.
The accommodation briefly comprises of; an elegant reception hallway with feature full height windows providing outlook to driveway and rear courtyard with fitted shutters. The breakfasting kitchen provides an open plan element that has been fitted with an extensive range of wall and floor units with granite worktops, integrated appliances, and central island. The main feature of this house must be the recently redesign and decorated orangery and its amazing lantern style roof which brings in the natural light. Off the kitchen is the new fully fitted utility and boot room with rear access. The family room has a beautiful walk-in bay window looking out on to the gardens. The spacious lounge features a marble fire surround incorporating marble hearth and inlay with living flame gas fire. A contemporary study with plantation blinds and downstairs w/c completes the ground floor.
To the first floor the gallery landing gives access to a sun terrace with timber decked flooring. The master bedroom is of a generous size with walk in dressing room, en-suite benefiting from having a jacuzzi spa bath as well as a Jacuzzi hydro /steam shower unit. Bedroom two has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite with walk in shower. The family bathroom is fully tiled with tiled floor and a walk-in shower and double Jacuzzi bath.
To the second floor the gallery landing leads to bedroom three with French doors leading out on to the south facing balcony with wrought iron railings and has an en-suite with a walk-in double shower. Bedroom four has a beautiful outlook onto the formal gardens and woodland. Bedroom five has French doors leading to balcony overlooking gardens to front elevation and woodland beyond.
Externally the ease of communication links throughout the area would hardly be noticed when situated in the house as the mature trees and hedgerows to the boundary provide a higher degree of seclusion and privacy with the concealed driveway accessing the property off the main road and via electronic gates to the courtyard parking and to the detached double tandem garage. Access is provided via steps to a raised sun terrace and into the property itself. The gardens have gone through major refurbishment by an award-winning landscape architect. The easy accessibility into the City as well as its easy communication links will make this property a most desirable purchase to any family.
Accessibility throughout the area is provided via the nearby A167 which provides access north to Chester le Street (6 miles) as well as access to the nearby A691 which provides access west to Lanchester (7miles) and Consett (10 miles). The city itself offers a fascinating mix of history, culture, shops, bars and restaurants and the Castle and Cathedral complex have been designated World Heritage Sites attracting tourism from around the world. The Gala Theatre adds another dimension to the City which also offers meandering river and City walks as well as hotels, swimming pools, golf courses all within close proximity and a number of well-regarded private and state junior and secondary schools.
