Property Description

Full description

Viewly Grange is believed to have been built in the 17th century. The farmhouse is Grade II listed and is highly impressive. The current owners and their predecessors have carried out considerable work to the house, which provides a luxurious family home on the outskirts of Durham, close by to Chester le Street and the A1M which links into Newcastle. It is well placed for its ease of access to Durham train station and it has local road links to neighbourhood facilities.

The setting of Viewly Grange is very special. It has a number of mature evergreen trees that give good screening and privacy. The rolling lawned gardens and the adjacent enclosed paddocks are particularly impressive.

Viewly Grange Farm contrasts contemporary accommodation with old period styling, a feature which will be fully appreciated from an internal inspection. The house has modern state of the art heating, with an oil fired system, individual thermostats. The property has double glazing to some windows and a comprehensive alarm system with surveillance cameras.

The driveway and approach is imposing, with good parking facilities for many cars, as well as open terraces and al fresco dining areas.

The entrance reception hall has been greatly improved by the addition of a magnificent conservatory and orangery which acts as a focal point for the house. It links the stunning sitting room and leisure area to the old part of the farmhouse.

The kitchen & breakfasting room is very well equipped with hand painted and solid oak cabinets, beautiful granite worktops and quality appliances. The Parisian Fired Earth floor tiles are a feature throughout the principal reception areas. There is a dining room with period fireplace and access from the old reception hall to the family room, which also has a fireplace.

The principal sitting room has a log burning stove and divides into a cinema area with built-in audio sound and overhead projector.

The leisure wing is located within the old barn of the house. It provides a large swimming pool, a gymnasium, eight person sauna and steam room, an eight person Jacuzzi and two changing rooms.

Viewly Grange Farm has the benefit of a cottage which links to rear of the house. It has an open plan lounge and kitchen area, a double bedroom and an en-suite shower room.

The principal house has five double bedrooms; one of which is currently used as a dressing room but could revert back to a bedroom if required. The fifth bedroom has a mezzanine deck.

Viewly Grange Farm is well located within beautiful countryside, as well enjoying ease of access into Durham and Newcastle.
