Guide price

Bedrooms: 4

A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a substantial 4 Bedroom Detached Family Home, occupying an extremely generous plot within the village of St.Helen Auckland.

The village is an ideal base for commuting, being within easy reach of the A68 and A1(M) for travel both North and South and for the outdoor enthusiasts, the perfect location to explore Hamsterley Forest, Durham Dales and the Weardale Valley, which is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. St.Helens itself has a Primary School, healthcare facilities and the ever expanding Tindale Crescent Retail Park is within walking distance. A further range of schools, shopping and recreational facilities can be found in Bishop Auckland which is home to the spectacular open air night show Kynren – An Epic Tale of England, with others available in Barnard Castle and Darlington, both approximately 11 miles away.

The light and airy design of the house owes much to the extensive use of glass throughout the property with French doors or picture windows featuring in many of the rooms, which are generously proportioned both in floor area and ceiling height.

Warmed via Gas Central Heating (new boiler installed in 2021) and benefitting from Double Glazing throughout (most of the windows having recently been fitted with custom made plantation shutters) the internal layout briefly comprises; Reception Hallway, dual aspect Lounge Diner, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility, Garden Room, Bathroom and Inner Hallway with access to Two Double Bedrooms, one of which has En-Suite Facilities.

To the first floor, a Galleried Landing, stunning Master Bedroom with Dressing Room and En-Suite, a further Double Bedroom and Family Bathroom.

Externally the property, which sits within landscaped gardens, is accessible via wrought iron gates which open to a lengthy gravelled driveway, leading to a Detached Double Garage.
