School House is an ideal family forever home, with its own paddocks. It enjoys an enviable position on the crest of Primrose hill itself on the edge of the quiet village of Newfield, with views for miles and miles towards Sunnybrow and Willington.

The property measures a total area of roughly 1.04. The paddock area, which takes up the majority of the site at acres is currently used for livestock however has in the past benefitted from outline planning permission for the erection of 9 houses. It was granted in 2014 and has therefore lapsed, but further information relating to this can be found on the Durham County Council website's planning portal using the reference number DM/14/02055/OUT.

Upon entry the house itself has a lovely feel to it, similar to that of a farm house with its long living room and dining room combined with its feature fireplace housing a wood burner. It further features wooden beams and has wonderful cosy feel to it. The generously sized kitchen is at the back of the house and comprises a long range of floor and wall mounted units with work tops and splash backs. It also features a large range style cooker and a breakfast area.

The utility room and bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation and are accessed off the rear entrance lobby.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms - three of which are large enough to accommodate King size beds. The master bedroom features an ensuite shower room. The bedroom at the other end of the property has the benefit of a Juliet balcony which looks over the paddock to the front and enjoys the great views.

The property has ample parking to the side of the house which is in addition to the large double garage which is integral to the house. There is a high powered electrical car charging point fitted to the garage wall.

Outside, to the rear the property has a detached stable block which has three stables and a large hay feed room. The enclosed private gardens and three patios for entertaining and dining complete the outside space.

The property further benefits from solar panels which have been installed to the roof of the property which help with the generation of electric which itself cuts down on the consumption from the main grid and helps with the bills. They are on a fixed tarriff which has a further 18 years to run and is set at 16p per kilowatt hour.
