Property Description

Full description

An historic and highly individual converted period home spanning five floors, sympathetically extended to create enormous versatility with potential for self-contained annexe.

Accommodation in brief; Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Dining Room/Garden Room, Rear Entrance Hall, Utility Room, Four Bedrooms in total (three in the main house and one over the garage), Family Bathroom, Two Shower Rooms. Beautifully landscaped Gardens with Sun Terrace, Enclosed Courtyard Parking leading to Integral Double Garage.

The Maltings is a unique and charming period house occupying an prominent position above the River Derwent in the ever popular and self sufficient village of Shotley Bridge. The main house provides beautifully presented accommodation and is linked to the newly constructed extension by a stunning garden room with huge windows, an impressive blend of traditional and contemporary architecture. The arrangement of the accommodation allows for the creation of a separate annexe, if desired, as there is a guest suite over the garage - which could easily be converted to provide additional living space, subject to consents.

Internally, The Maltings is superbly finished with the preservation of character coupled with the introduction of quality fixtures and fittings, all complemented by tasteful décor. The property has been painstakingly restored to conserve the original features and the new appointments, such as cast iron radiators and reclaimed solid oak floors, are very much in keeping and enhance the house. The front door opens into a very welcoming reception hall with solid oak flooring and original beams, giving an immediate flavour of the charm displayed in the house. A glazed door leads into the beautiful drawing room which has a continuation of the solid oak floor and original beams, being a light and airy room with hardwood sash windows providing views over the garden. The centrepiece of the room is a gorgeous original stone fireplace with cast iron multi fuel stove. Undoubtedly, one of the most impressive attributes of this property is the lavish kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke hand made and painted base units under black granite work surfaces, double Belfast sink with chrome monobloc tap, central island, integral dishwasher and fridge, Falcon range with electric double oven and five ring gas hob. Additional features in this fantastic room are the Travertine tiled floor, cast iron radiator and beamed ceiling with downlighters. The adjoining dining room/garden room is a recent addition and links the main house to the extension. This stunning room, with full height windows, reclaimed solid oak flooring and exposed brick chimney breast with wood burning stove, brilliantly blends modern and traditional design. There are three bedrooms in the main house including a sumptuous master bedroom on the first floor with beams, sash windows and fireplace with gas fired stove with adjoining bathroom with Heritage suite and cast iron roll top bath. On the second floor are two further bedrooms served by a shower room with white traditional suite and stripped wood floor. The extension contains the rear entrance hall which leads to the fourth bedroom. This generous room has exposed roof timbers and overlooks the lower garden and courtyard. Adjoining is a newly fitted shower room with double shower and modern white suite complemented by stylish tiling. To the lower ground floor is a utility room, with solid oak flooring, range of hand made and painted units, Belfast sink and plumbing for washing machine. Also to this lower level is the integral double garage with electrically operated doors. This could be easily converted and combined with the bedroom above to create a fantastic self-contained annexe, subject to consents.
