The Copse is situated in a prime west end location within one mile of the town centre and within walking distance of local shops, bars, restaurants, cinema complex and theatre.

There are excellent local schools nearby and bus services to private schools in Barnard Castle
and Yarm, together with pubic transport, are available close to the end of the private, secure driveway with electric gates.

The Copse really is a hidden gem and the property, which has been owned from new by the
same family for over 35 years, is presented to a high standard and offers spacious accommodation throughout.


For the commuter, the A1 and A66 provide links to the major
commercial centres of the local region and nationally. Darlington
Railway Station provides excellent links to the East Coast mainline railway. This is complimented by Durham Tees Valley airport and also Newcastle and Leeds Bradford which offer further communications with the rest of the country and overseas.

The Copse is a most attractive architecturally designed five bedroom detached family home. The property is ideal for entertaining with most rooms opening into the rear gardens. The spacious reception hall, with hardwood flooring and useful storage cupboard and cloakroom/wc, gives access to the
principle rooms.

An open spindle staircase leads to the first floor and a spacious
galleried landing. The L-shaped lounge/dining room is accessed from the hall via bespoke hardwood steps.

The lounge enjoys views over the front garden from a double glazed bow window to the front. The dining room leads into the stunning orangery built by Amdega with electrically operated roof vents and fitted blinds. A polished granite floor has underfloor heating and bi folding doors open into the rear garden. A snug/study can be accessed from both the dining room and the orangery.

The kitchen has been upgraded with a comprehensive range of quality high gloss wall and floor units with granite work surfaces and a range of built in appliances, including a Rangemaster electric range cooker with induction hob, stainless steel extractor hood, dishwasher, wine cooler, fridge, stainless steel sink unit with waste disposal unit and ceramic tiled floor.

A breakfast bar and seating area leads into the rear garden through bi folding doors. The utility room has a range of modern units, plumbing for automatic washing machine and space for tumble dryer and also leads into the rear garden. A rear hallway, which also has access to the front of the house, leads into the garage.

To the first floor is a spacious landing with double glazed window giving good natural light. The master bedroom suite is at the end of a short corridor and has a walk in dressing room with a range of fitted storage units. The bedroom has access to a balcony with wrought iron railings, facing west and overlooking the front gardens - ideal to watch the sun go down. A large en-suite bathroom has a walk in shower, free standing bath and fully tiled walls and heated floor. There are two double bedrooms with vanity units and access to a modern bathroom. A further double bedroom has access to the balcony and a modern contemporary bathroom with walk in shower and free standing bath. In addition there is a fifth single bedroom currently used as a study.

The property is fully alarmed and benefits from double glazing.

Access via a long private driveway leads to the enclosed gardens which are particularly secluded, with the front garden mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, plants and shrubs.

There is ample parking to the front of the house. The rear garden is enclosed by mature hedging and features a stone flagged patio area and lawn ideal for entertaining.

Two greenhouses and a timber shed are well screened from the garden with a timber trellis.
