The Property
Westfield House is an attractive, stone detached double-fronted house which sits on the edge of the sought-after village of Matfen. The property is part of an exclusive development of four properties constructed in 2006 by Blue Box Developments who specialise in bespoke developments across the North-East of England. The house is well laid out over two floors and offers versatile accommodation and benefits from stunning surrounding landscaped gardens.

Internally, the property is well-presented with high-quality fixtures and fittings and bright and airy accommodation. The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall which gives access to the principal rooms and has stairs to the first floor. The dual-aspect drawing room which has an open fire with stone surround is located to the front of the house and benefits from views over the front and side gardens. Glazed double doors connect the drawing room to the dining room which offers a charming formal entertaining space and has French doors overlooking the striking formal garden with water feature. Further double doors connect the dining room to the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of bespoke oak units from Mowlem & Co with complementary granite work surfaces. The kitchen which includes an island unit with breakfast bar for everyday dining is fitted with a 1˝ bowl under-mounted sink, ceramic hob, integrated oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. A door from the kitchen leads out to the rear drive and garage. Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room which has a range of bespoke units, also from Mowlem & Co, a single sink, and is plumbed for a washing machine with space for a tumble dryer. To the rear of the utility room there is a spacious boiler cupboard with shelving and storage space. A cloakroom/WC off the hall completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs lead up to a bright galleried first floor landing, with charming reading area, which gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. The spacious master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room with corner shower, wash hand basin and WC. There are three further bedrooms, two of which enjoy views over the front garden and open countryside beyond. These bedrooms are served by a fully-tiled bathroom fitted with a bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC.

Externally, there are stunning, yet manageable, landscaped gardens which have been created by the current owners to provide various 'rooms' formed with mature yew hedging and stone boundary walls.

To the front double timber gates lead to a gravelled parking area and steps lead down to a charming par terre garden and the front door. A path leads round to both sides of the house with surprises at every turn. To one side of the house there is a lawned garden with mature boundary planting which leads to the formal, low maintenance water garden with three sandstone water bowls and rill; there is a seating area at one end of this garden and a paved terrace at the other which offer areas to enjoy the peaceful setting and calming sounds of flowing water. To the other side of the house there is a productive herb, fruit and vegetable garden with stepover and espalier apple trees, hardwood raised beds and access to a stone wood store and rear drive.
From the lane a further gated entrance leads to a private block-paved drive that leads to a single garage. The garage benefits from power and light and has a side door to the garden.
