The property is approached along a lane with a gated entrance to the driveway of the property. A gravel drive sweeps past the garage towards the property and gardens. The garage is situated below the master bedroom and houses a utility room with WC, a boiler room and a coal bunker is located just outside the garage.


Steps alongside the garage lead up to the oil tank and secure shed, a further detached garage sits across the lane.


The gravelled area flows around the side of the property to a paved patio area at the front and to a seating area at the far side of the property with original cobbles up the hill next to the property. Steps from the patio lead down to a studio/office with an electric supply, and to a gate into the paddock. From the studio a path leads to a lawned area with flower and shrub borders and a summerhouse. This particular area of the garden enjoys the fabulous panoramic views of the Teesdale countryside. A gravel path leads through an ivy archway to a door which has a practical potting and storage area enclosed behind. A mature woodland area has a path leading through the trees to a seating area and an excellent playhouse which has an electric supply. Steps return to the gravel driveway.

There is vehicular access off the lane to the paddock which extends to 0.28Ha (0.7Ac) and benefits from a timber field shelter and store.
