LOCATION Mordon Lodge is a fabulous detached property with equestrian facilities located just 2 miles south west of Sedgefield in the south of County Durham. The property benefits from excellent access to the A1(M) being 2 miles to the west and also the A19(T) 10 miles to the east providing good commuting links to the major North East urban areas. 

DESCRIPTION Set in a semi-rural location with good access to major road network and with stunning countryside views, Mordon Lodge also known as The Bread and Beer House is a true North East of England Gem. The deceptively spacious bespoke accommodation includes 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 5 reception rooms, stables, and out buildings supported by formal gardens, paddock and arena. The property has been extensively extended and improved over the years by the current owners and now offers fabulous accommodation sympathetically blending the traditional original building with more contemporary open plan accommodation set mainly on the ground floor. Great planning has been done to create a home perfect for entertaining and for the growing family and benefits from such details as a central vacuum cleaning system with 10 connection points covering the entire house, under floor heating and built-in music/stereo system to the "new part", solar panels and designated gym/fitness/games room facilities. Add to this the extensive private landscaped gardens, Stable block, paddock and arena and there is nothing to find fault with. This is a genuine "see it to believe it" property.
The traditional part of the home is accessed from the front into a lobby area which houses the central vacuum controls and leads to a reception hall with parquet flooring and stairs to the first floor. Leading from the hall is found a bathroom, kitchen, breakfast room and dining room. The kitchen is fitted with a range of high quality wall and base units with granite worktops, inset 1.5 bowl sink unit, built in microwave and dishwasher, two electric hobs, Rangemaster Toledo XT range with extractor hood, recessed downlights, fully tiled walls and laminate floor. Double doors lead from the kitchen to the breakfast room which then leads to the large dining room which has feature stone fireplace and parquet flooring. The dining room is also the link to the new part of the house but staying in the old part there is also access to a study/library which in turn leads to a double guest bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite. The first floor accommodation is also located in the original part of the house where there are three double bedrooms and bathrooms. All of the bedrooms have fitted robes with one having an ensuite.
The new part of the house has been designed with an open plan layout with vaulted ceiling providing a great deal of light and space and leads out into the landscaped gardens. The accommodation in this area comprises reception area, lounge, breakfast area and study area. The reception area has tiled floor, a WC and porch leading to the front. Steps lead down from this area to the lounge which has part tiled floor and feature built in bar, perfect for post dinner entertaining! French doors lead out from the lounge to a large patio. Another small set of steps leads from the reception area up to a breakfasting area which has tiled floor and small kitchen area with floor and wall units, inset sink and built in fridge. This area leads on to an office/study area. From the office area a door leads to the master bedroom, a lovely spacious room with walk in wardrobes and the added bonus of modern, high quality "his and hers" ensuites. One en-suite has a four piece suite including Jacuzzi bath and mains fed shower whilst the second has a three piece suite with double walk in mains fed shower.

EXTERNAL The property is accessed via remote/intercom controlled wrought iron gates with sweeping driveway which leads to a good sized double garage. Beyond the driveway and surrounding the house are stunning hedge enclosed landscaped gardens which are mainly laid to lawns with mature flora and forna. The house is bordered by a large tiered patio which has built in lighting for evening entertaining. The driveway also leads to a stable block.

Consisting of 10 stables measuring 15'6 x 10' and two corner stables measuring 20' x 16'. All stables have automatic water supply, feeding and hay troughs. Behind the stables there is a large hay shed. Attached to the stables is the gymnasium annexe.
