Full description

A stunning five bedroom detached family house set within extensive well landscaped grounds with fields at the rear and being sold with no upward chain


We are delighted to offer to the market for the very first time this individually designed five bedroom detached house that stands in a beautiful setting within mature grounds in a rural setting that has open views and fields to the rear. It is being sold with the huge benefit of no upward chain. The house was commissioned to be built by the present owner, designed and built by Durham professionals to a high standard throughout. Since construction the house has been further updated to now included gas central heating that is provided by a combi boiler and this is further enhanced by modern double glazing. A canopy porch and enclosed hall has a useful adjoining Cloakroom/WC with a doorway to the inner hall and a deep cloakroom cupboard. The inner hall leads to the living room via the sitting room with an open-tread hardwood staircase and floor. The principal 23ft living room has views from three aspects as well as a feature fireplace. There is direct access into the rear gardens via patio doors. The living room is open plan into the dining area that also enjoys fine aspects over the rear gardens. There are two ways into the breakfast kitchen that offers a wide array of kitchen units and working surfaces that extends to a breakfast bar. In addition there is a traditional pantry and direct access to the rear hall and utility room. The first floor landing leads to five bedrooms, three double with fitted wardrobes and all of which are very well served by a family bathroom with walk-in shower. Outside the gardens are well landscaped with mature lawns, bushes trees and flowering plants. There is a sweeping driveway that offers ample off-street parking and leads to the Integral garage. Further gardens beyond the hedging at the rear has separate access and leads onto open fields. EPC rating D. A copy of the full EPC is available upon request.


The village of Witton Gilbert occupies a pleasant situation in the Browney Valley on the A691 from Durham (3.5 miles) to Lanchester (4.5 miles), with good access to Durham, Newcastle, Chester-le-Street and Washington. On the north and west it is bounded by an amphitheater of rising ground towards Charlaw Fell and the Burnhope TV mast, and on the south overlooks the valley of the river Browney, towards Ushaw College and Esh. Ravensgarth is set right in the heart of this historic village and has direct access onto open fields and the many walks and cycle paths nearby. Witton Gilbert enjoys typical village facilities and is well served for commuting purposes as it lies adjacent to the A691 leading to Durham, the Sniperly Park and Ride facilities and the Arnison Shopping Centre.
