Property Description

Bradley Hall is delighted to offer this truly unique property in a beautiful rural setting. Not only does the successful buyer acquire a truly impressive home, which has been tastefully adapted by the current owner, they also have the added advantage of a substantial plot with just under 6 acres.

The Larches, located in Thorpe Larches, Sedgefield, truly is the property that keeps on giving. This palatial six-bedroom family home boasts separate living quarters connected to the main house, a garage, as well as a triple garage currently used as a self-contained detached bungalow.

Sedgefield is an established village which has seen a huge expansion over the last few years and as a result now boasts several top-quality food and leisure outlets, bespoke local shops, a supermarket and of course the famous racecourse. Accessibility throughout the region is second to none with the nearby A1(m) for locations north and south, the A189 providing access east to Teesside (4 miles) and Wynyard (2 miles) and the A177 providing access north to the historic City of Durham (5 miles).

The property is approached via a private wrought iron gate and along a sweeping gravel drive leading to a central water feature, providing an abundance of parking to the front, side, and rear of the property. There is a large lawned front garden complete with fruit trees, that spans the full length of the main home and the outbuildings. Further on through to the rear of the triple garage, a stone wall boundary with wooden gates reveals the additional site with outbuildings and a paddock, which has the added advantage of a private gated entrance from the front of the property, allowing for completely independent access. This parcel of land lends itself to a multitude of uses subject to consent and planning.

The main detached home is entered via beautiful solid oak double doors with stone Portico, where you are met with a striking oak wood central staircase. From here you can access the formal lounge and dining room.

The formal lounge to the east side of the property is a beautiful space with double aspect windows providing views of the grounds and front gardens, feature gas fireplace, ornate coving, and double French doors to the garden room.

The dining room to the west of the property is a generous room with space for a large dining table, also providing double aspect windows and ornate coving.

With access to the main hub of the home from both the formal lounge and dining room, this wrap around space is ideal for entertaining or equally can be segmented to create separate rooms owing to the double French doors at both access points.

The hub of the home is the open plan kitchen/garden room, a generous space streaming with light owing to the glass garden room complete with large skylight roof section. The fully fitted kitchen comprises of a mix of wall and base units, Belfast sink, integrated appliances including an electric oven with gas hob, extractor fan and dishwasher. Open plan living to the garden room makes this an ideal space for alfresco dining and provides direct access to the drive and gardens. A large utility room provides further space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, additional worktops, sink and a boiler room housing the gas boiler.

The added living space accessed from the kitchen and nestled between the house and the garage, is ideal for a growing family with teenage children or for large extended families.

With its own entrance door allowing for separate access from the main house and features a lounge, bedroom, and bathroom. There are two skylights within the roof space, allowing for the potential loft extension to add a further bedroom subject to planning.

On the first floor of the main residence, you will find four double bedrooms, two with built in wardrobes and ensuite facilities, and a family bathroom.

On the second floor the principal bedroom with neighbouring fully equipped ensuite is a beautiful addition with double skylights providing amazing views to the front and rear. The ensuite comprises of a rolltop free standing bath, vanity sink and toilet.

The family bathroom has a modern finish with fully tiled walls and floor and a cathedral style sash window, comprising of a white suite with free standing bath, walk-in waterfall shower, vanity sink and toilet.

Externally this property houses a triple garage currently used as a self-contained bungalow with an open plan kitchen/lounge, a bedroom and bathroom. The roller shutter garage doors are still retained and therefore has the potential to be converted back to its original state or replaced with windows to complete the external façade of this building, subject to planning.

A rare opportunity to own this unique home and we would strongly recommend an early inspection to avoid disappointment.

Please note this property has a sewage-disposal tank.
