Property Description

Full description

Watergate Farm could be said to encompass many of the virtues of its Weardale location – a solid, honest home with a friendly face that rewards those who love the outdoors. Stone built, the three-bedroom property would make the ideal home for a family with a pony or two since it has stabling, a hay store and a paddock, all set in beautiful riding country, yet have Crook amenities upon the doorstep. Very much a property for owners with animals, even the stable-style back door nods to an equestrian way of life. The exceptionally pretty gardens are another reason to head outside, with their rolling lawns and even your own stream running through the trees.

Inside, this comfortable home has a very practical layout with a central hallway leading to two reception rooms with period features, a good sized kitchen and utility with WC. Upstairs the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the two other double bedrooms share a luxury family bathroom.

It is a light and sunny home with lovely garden views from every window. Crook, the civic centre of Wear Valley, is renowned for being a friendly market town, with all the everyday amenities close at hand including supermarkets, banks and independent shops. Durham City is around ten miles away to the north east; the main road west continues on to Wolsingham and Stanhope and beyond to the beautiful and dramatic countryside of Upper Weardale.
