Consent to convert to 3 residential units offering a rare opportunity to create a top quality development in a highly sought after location all enjoying fine outlooks.


Cleasby Grange is a prominent farm steading very pleasantly situated at south of the village of Stapleton and close the market town of Darlington. Cleasby Grange is very well placed for easy access to the regional and national road network (A1M Junction 56, 3 miles), Darlingtons East Coast rail line and Durham Tees Valley, Newcastle and Leeds/Bradford airports. The Durham and Yorkshire Dales are readily accessible along with the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast all offering numerous recreational pursuits.

The property stands in an attractive rolling landscape and the house and the proposed conversions all enjoy fine outlooks from an elevated position over open countryside with far reaching views.

The House
The spacious family farmhouse would benefit from some updating but offers well-proportioned accommodation over three floors and includes 2 good reception rooms and a conservatory, Cloakroom, fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a large utility/boot room with WC. There are 3 first floor bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and an attic bedroom. With some re-planning there could be an additional reception room and a further first floor bedroom, subject to all necessary consents.
There is a very pleasant south easterly facing garden and a useful garage and a good workshop/store. Although Cleasby Grange and the buildings will share the access leading on to the site, the planning consent provides for a separate access to the development running to the rear of the garage and workshop so that no reservations for access are required through the existing house site.
