A stunning detached period house and separate one bedroom garden cottage, set in delightful landscaped gardens and situated in the highly sought after village of West Tanfield. The separate cottage adds flexibility to the accommodation, whilst also offering the opportunity to be utilised as a holiday let or long-term rental.
Having undergone a full and sympathetic renovation in recent years, both the main house and garden cottage reveal beautifully presented accommodation. The main house is an attractive stone-built cottage, extended to the rear and offering character accommodation set over two floors. The house offers the flexibility to be utilised as a two or three bedroom property, whilst a downstairs bathroom means that part of the property could be separated to create an annexe, should the new owners require. An entrance porch leads to the spacious main reception room which is full of character, with exposed ceiling beams and stone fire surround. There is a very good size farmhouse kitchen/diner which comes fitted with an extensive range of attractive units, whilst being fully equipped with fitted appliances and Everhot cooker. There is a utility room housing the boiler and inner hallway with storage cupboard and stairs rising to the first floor. There is also a downstairs bedroom (currently utilised as a dining room), bathroom and study. The first floor provides a landing, two double bedrooms with pitched ceilings and a modern shower room with white suite. The main house is double glazed with oil fired central heating.
To the front of the property there is a mature well stocked garden, with pathway leading to the front door. A driveway gives access down the side of the house, providing parking for several vehicles and also leading to the garden cottage. There is a low maintenance seating area directly behind the house, plus an enclosed lawned garden beyond, well stocked with trees and shrubs and offering a good degree of privacy. The garden also houses a good size timber summer house and concealed oil tank.
The garden cottage was skilfully converted approximately nine years ago, now providing light and airy one bedroom accommodation, ideal for use as a rental or to incorporate a relative. On the ground floor there is a spacious open plan living space with large windows to the front, plus a modern kitchen. The first floor offers a double bedroom with skylight and en-suite shower room. The cottage benefits from double glazing, LPG gas central heating and its own private low maintenance rear garden.
This really is a rare opportunity and an internal appraisal is essential to appreciate the accommodation on offer.
