Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase ‘Stone Garth' a detached stone built Bungalow, situated within a much sought after rural setting, close to the North Pennines.

Copley Bent lies conveniently between the villages of Copley and Butterknowle, enjoying all amenities.

The market towns of Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle are within easy reach, both offering a range of schools, shopping and recreational facilities.

There are many public footpaths, both in the immediate area and surrounding countryside of Teesdale and nearby Weardale, making this a popular destination for walkers, being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Woodland-Gaunless Valley Heritage Walk starts in Copley passing the former mine buildings, the mine manager's house and the lead smelt chimney, now a listed building.

For the commuter, the A688 and A68 are a short drive away, leading to the A1(M) for travel both North and South. There is also an extensive public transport system throughout the villages allowing access to the neighbouring towns.

The bungalow is warmed via Oil Fired Central Heating, benefits from uPVC Double Glazing and was recently wired for Super Fast Fibre Broadband.

The internal layout briefly comprises, Entrance Conservatory, Central Hallway, a dual aspect Lounge/Diner, Fitted Kitchen, Rear Porch, Three Double Bedrooms and a Family Shower Room/Wc.

Externally to the front of the property there is a wall enclosed garden and a block paved driveway, providing added off road parking, leading to an attached Garage.

To the rear, an enclosed low maintenance courtyard with far reaching open views across the surrounding countryside.

In our opinion this bungalow, which is offered for sale with no onward chain, should prove of great interest to a variety of purchasers and therefore an early viewing is highly recommended.
