Property Description

Full description

Gentleman's Edwardian residence with land
• Spacious and well appointed family house • Elegant reception rooms with fine detail • 5 Bedrooms including en-suite master • Large garage block with tack room • Pleasant gardens to three sides • Easy access to A66


Prospect House enjoys an elevated position overlooking meadowland towards the A66 on the edge of the popular village of Sadberge a few miles to the east of Darlington. Despite its proximity to the A66 Sadberge retains its charm as a village located around a number of country lanes leading to neighbouring villages. Benefiting from a local shop, nursery school and village pub, the village retains a very good community spirit. The A66 is accessed within minutes allowing a very short commute to Darlington or onwards to the A1(M).

To the east Stockton and Middlesbrough are just a few miles away. The nearest train station is at Darlington on the east coast mainline to London’s King’s Cross; this is a fifteen minute drive with trains running regularly to London taking approximately 2.5 hours. In addition, Teesside Airport is just ten minutes away.

The North York Moors are easily accessed via the A19 for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits; Teesside shopping park and the multiplex cinema complex are a short distance to the east. For those who enjoy the coast wonderful sandy beaches at Redcar, Marske by the Sea and Saltburn by the Sea can be reached within half an hour.

The area is served well by a selection of good quality state and private schools. In particular, Yarm School achieves outstanding results on a regular basis.


From Darlington take the A66 heading towards Stockton on Tees. Turn off the A66 heading towards Sadberge and follow the road into the village. Turn right towards Middleton St George and you will see the property set back from the road on the left hand side just before you leave the village, marked by a George F White sale board.


Prospect House is a wonderful example of Edwardian architecture benefiting from large well appointed reception rooms including features such as ceiling roses, architraves and panelled doors. The oldest part of the house has 17th Century origins dating back to the original “Busby Cottage”. Surrounded by its own gardens there is a sense of space wherever one goes at Prospect House. Some of the original sash windows remain but there is also double glazing and gas central heating and the property is fortunate enough to be on mains gas.

The accommodation itself comprises: a reception hall, drawing room with bay window, dining room, sitting room, large kitchen with adjoining conservatory, rear porch/boot room and utility room, downstairs cloakroom and vaulted cellar. The first floor boasts a good size landing with a master bedroom featuring large fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, two further generous double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a family bathroom. The loft is boarded out and is accessed via a drop-down ladder.

Currently much is laid to lawn with various flower beds and there is an old brick stable which has been converted into a potting shed with a dog run.


There is a well drained paddock bounded by post and rail fencing extending to approximately 0.75 Ha (1.85 Ac), with a timber stable and a manège available by separate negotiation.
