A welcoming and spacious, semi-detached cottage over three floors, having panoramic views of Weardale and enjoying a southerly aspect with large gardens and grounds, out buildings and garage.
The entrance to this charming cottage opens into a useful porch which in turn leads into the country-style kitchen and dining room.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of off-white, shaker-style, soft close units including pan drawers and larder cupboard with alcove under the stairs and under counter voids for white goods and appliances. A sink and drainer unit is set next to the window which looks out to the traditional rear yard. The dining area is of good proportions, accommodating free standing dining furniture and the floor is tiled with a grey ceramic tile.
A large window also looks out over the courtyard and beyond to the terraced gardens, above the property. A step down takes you to the cosy living room which enjoys the southerly aspect and has wide French doors which frame the breath-taking view of Weardale and lead into the pleasant lawned forecourt garden. The room benefits from a brushed steel open fire surround with oak mantel piece and tiled inserts, set on a granite hearth and boasting an LPG living flame fire. From the vestibule, which also has a front door, stairs rise to the first floor where two comfortable double bedrooms can be found. Each one enjoys a pleasing view with the front boasting the best aspect in the property. There is an original, stone inglenook fireplace.
The shower room located on this floor includes WC, double shower cubicle with mains fed shower and wash hand basin set in a beech vanity unit with spot lit mirror over. The additional storage unit provides ample and convenient storage and the room is tiled to full height on three walls with shower boarding to the ceiling and plenty of light courtesy of the spot lights recessed within.
Another stair case rises to the large attic space which comprises 3 further storage areas and bathroom. There is good head height throughout this floor, making it a very useful space for craft/hobby room or study area and having the potential to be converted to use as further bedroom accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Once more, awe inspiring views are enjoyed to both aspects from the Velux roof lights.
To the front of the property is a sheltered and spacious forecourt garden currently laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and due to its elevated position, having a relative amount of privacy. The view from here must be seen in person to be appreciated fully but spans from east to west, having sunshine all day. To the rear a traditional shared yard provides pedestrian access to the neighbouring properties and across the yard is a useful stone built outhouse having WC, electricity and lighting, ideal for use as a work shop or utility room.
An external timber staircase leads up to a private lane over which the neighbouring properties enjoy a vehicular right of way, beyond this lies the large garage/workshop. This building has light and electricity and a manual up and over door. A set of stone steps, lead up to the 3 tiers of terraced garden. The first terrace being a gravelled area housing the LPG tank, the second currently in use as a vegetable patch with timber shed and the third being lawned and enjoying similar views which skim the roof tops.
Above this is the small paddock which together with the gardens on this side of the lane extends to 0.08Ha (0.21Ac). There is a brick built shed thought to be an old piggery, located on this parcel of land which is accessed on foot and would make a fantastic place to keep small livestock or create a wild flower garden for example.
