Property Description

Full description

Do you crave charming character and a property packed with personality?

If so, this fantastic stone built cottage can be your well-kept secret. Hidden behind the rolling fields surrounding the local Whitehouse farm, which is visible from the main A68. The village, however, is unexpected! Originally constructed in the early 1800's the charisma of the property is evident as it sits in the prime location at the top of Thornley Village with tree lined views of Weardale below. To the top of the hill Tow Law offers a range of local shops, leisure facilities and schools.

Steeped in history this four bedroom cottage began its life as a pub and has been transformed over the years into the family home you find today. The kitchen boasts a unique chimney breast sweeping up the wall to the beamed ceiling. The two spacious reception rooms feature stone inglenook fireplaces and stripped wood floors, upstairs in the bathroom you get the opportunity to experience the most in rural living as the field beyond the property holds livestock which, on occasion visit the window to say hello. In addition to four spacious bedrooms this property has gardens to the front and rear with a wooden outbuilding, making this the perfect location for your growing family.
