The Area
Rookhope is set within the valley of Weardale and is home to a small rural community. The village includes a popular, traditionally run public house, primary school, and a small village store whilst further facilities are found close by in the town of Stanhope.

Benefitting from a tranquil, relaxed, rural location with numerous outdoor pursuits readily on hand and the fantastic backdrop of the surrounding moorland, together with the dynamic city attractions of Durham being within a short travelling distance, the location is ideal for a variety of purchasers. International Airports at both Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley offer both national and international travel and are both accessible within one hour’s drive. Mainline railway links are also available within a short travelling distance meaning that the village is suitably located for travel to the larger business centres of the region.

The Property
7 Hylton Terrace is a pleasant mid terraced cottage set close to the centre of the village, enjoying stunning countryside views. The property is sold with the benefit of 1.97Ha (4.89Ac) grazing land alongside a field shelter, and would therefore ideally suit those with agricultural or equestrian interests.

The main entrance to the property is to the front, which leads into the porch which is ideal for the storage and removal of coats and boots. This in turn leads into the living room which features wooden effect laminate flooring throughout and enjoys stunning views over neighbouring countryside. The focal point of the room is the multi fuel stove, which is set upon a slate hearth within an inglenook into the chimney breast. The chimney breast offers exposed stone walling which adds to the character of the room.

The dining kitchen is situated to the rear of the property, and is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted storage units which are topped with granite effect composite worktops which incorporate a one and a half bowl stainless steel sink with drainer unit and mixer tap. Integral appliances include an electric oven, four ring hob with extractor over and dishwasher. The floor is laid with wooden effect laminate, whilst the kitchen also provides access to the rear porch/boot room which houses the oil fired boiler and benefits from power, space and plumbing for a washing machine.

Returning to the living room, stairs rise to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a generous double situated to the front of the property, and enjoys superb views overlooking the adjoining countryside. The master bedroom is also serviced by an attached shower room with a mains fed shower.

The second bedroom is a further double which is situated to the rear, whilst the third bedroom is a generous single and would be ideally suited to a nursery or home office.

The first floor accommodation is completed by the modern shower room, which is fitted with a low level WC with concealed cistern, wash hand basin set upon a vanity unit and double shower cubicle with mains fed shower. Tiled to splashback level, the shower room is heated by a chrome heated towel rail.
