The Area
Gainford is a highly sought after village providing a broad range of facilities, ideally placed for access to both Darlington and Barnard Castle. It supports a convenience store, post office and butchers shop along with a primary school, two churches, a doctor’s surgery, a public house and a hairdressers, along with delightful walks around the surrounding countryside and along the River Tees. A broader range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found within the aforementioned towns.

Many of the region’s beauty spots are close at hand, beyond which can be found the delights of Teesdale, North Yorkshire, the Lake District, Northumberland, and the East Coast.

For the commuter the A66, A67 and A1 (M) provide links with the major commercial centres of the North East. Darlington Mainline Railway Station and Durham Tees Valley International Airport offer further communications with the rest of the country.

The Property
Vicarage House is situated in a fantastic semi rural location on Low Green within the grounds of St. Mary’s Church. Once part of the former vicarage which adjoins the property, Vicarage House boasts huge character and is accessed via a pathway over the churchyard.

The entrance hallway has an original flagstone floor with doors radiating to the downstairs living accommodation and access to the large brick lined vaulted cellars.

The spacious living room has an impressive large inglenook fireplace with stone hearth. The room enjoys a dual aspect with views to the churchyard and to the village green.

The open plan kitchen and dining room again enjoys a dual aspect with an outlook to the courtyard and to the churchyard. The kitchen has a range of wall and base mounted units with voids for an oven and dishwasher with further space for a freestanding fridge freezer. French doors open out to the courtyard making the space perfect for entertaining.

A beautiful return stone staircase rises to the first floor which includes two large bedrooms and bathroom. The large master bedroom has a dual aspect with picturesque views over the village green and a smaller window that it is said servants once watched from for the vicar returning to the vicarage from services held in the church.

The family bathroom is a good size room which comprises a white suite with bath, WC and wash hand basin.

Steps lead up to the second bedroom which is another good sized double room with views to the rear over the courtyard and on to the river and benefits from a wash hand basin and enclosed shower cubicle along with a fitted wardrobe.

A further staircase rises to  the second floor that has a large third bedroom with a fireplace and similar views to the master bedroom. The room has a storage cupboard along with further storage on the landing.
