Full description

Broomhill Farm is a property reborn. Just seven years ago it was derelict, abandoned and unloved. Since then a total renovation has brought it back to life, indeed the good life, with poultry in the garden and a rejuvenated plot and orchard generating produce by the bucket-load. A very pretty house has emerged following the work, an ugly duckling transformed into a swan and a family home to be proud of. Inside is equally attractive with stylish spaces created for sociable, family life and others that offer comfortable, private havens. As well as renovating the house the vendors extended it to the side to provide a fabulous sun lounge which doubles as a lounge and dining room and is also a superb space for entertaining with French doors that open out onto a large decked area for eating outdoors. Overlooking the duck pond and pretty cottage garden at the front and across panoramic rural views at the back, it's a lovely place to sit. Exposed stone and beams ensure that, internally, this new addition is in keeping with the rustic character of the farmhouse. The charm continues in the lounge, which has an original stripped timber floor, beams and a stone fire surround and hearth, with a multi-fuel burning stove for cosy nights in. Considerable investment has been put into the breakfasting kitchen which is fitted with a slate floor, modern high gloss and glazed units and a centre island with granite worktops, integrated stainless steel appliances, including an indoor barbecue and hot plate grill, and a range cooker set in an inglenook along with a wall mounted double oven. The property has four bedrooms and a further room on the ground floor which is currently used as a fifth bedroom with a shower room next door, making it ideal for a less mobile relative. Alternatively, it could provide a study, playroom or sitting room with the added luxury of underfloor heating that also runs through the kitchen and sun lounge. Upstairs, the four double bedrooms have lovely garden and countryside views. The characterful master bedroom comes with a contemporary en-suite shower room and the other rooms share a luxury bathroom with a freestanding bath. In spite of the stylish interior, at Broomhill Farm life is all about the great outdoors and with such a beautiful garden, with lawns, stunning planting and several secluded areas to sit, it's easy to spend time outside. It is a gardener's and grower's delight with everything in place to be self-sufficient on the approximate acre of grounds, including several raised beds, four greenhouses, outbuildings, fruit trees and chicken run. Broomhill Farm is reached via a private, gated drive leading to a large garage, between the villages of Ebchester and Medomsley. Its rural location not only provides plenty of walks in the Derwent Valley, Gastro Pubs are within easy walking distance, and a range of outdoor pursuits on the door step, yet city life in Durham and Newcastle is within an easy drive, providing the best of both worlds
