A most unusual historic property situated in a stunning location within the Teesdale Valley, Ideal for redevelopment especially for one wanting to create either a superb single dwelling or for two holiday/letting flats. The accommodation currently provides hall, living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom together with the former Sunday School Room.

Newbiggin is located to the northern end of the Tees Valley off the B6277. The village can be approached by any one of three roads that lead off the B6277 the property is attached to the oldest Methodist Chapel in continuous use.

To the rear is a former fuel store now used to house the central heating boiler, with an adjacent bunded oil storage tank.

Planning Permission 
The property itself previously had planning permission, which has now lapsed. Copies of those plans are available, showing the ability to convert the premises from a single storey to a two storey dwelling, with the inclusion and the development of the school room, under the current living accommodation, accessed by a central staircase. Although this planning permission has lapsed, the proposal still appears as a sound and reasonable proposal. The property, however, provides a palette for each individual to make their own amendments as they see fit, with everything from two dwellings for holiday purposes perhaps, to an open plan ground floor allowing spacious living with additional bedrooms to the first floor, or converting it into a single four bedroom house of more traditional styling.
