Full description

Tenure: Freehold

With an outlook over unspoilt countryside and surrounded by farmland, Sycamore House offers a wonderful escape to peace and tranquillity complemented by luxury living in a property of rustic character. The four en suite bedroom home forms part of a conversion development of substantial buildings once connected to Scripton Farm, near sought after Brancepeth. The rural setting is beautiful, offering an outdoors lifestyle for families with the reassurance of security from a small number of neighbours yet with privacy. It is access via an exclusive Tarmac drive leading from an electric gated entrance. Its position maximises the views and offers an extensive sunny, lawned garden with stone wall, fence and tree boundaries edging fields. Inside, all the charm of the building's original function has been retained to create a unique home that blends character features with contemporary styling and modern comforts. The entrance opens into a lovely, light interior with stone flooring in the reception hallway, and oak doors and bespoke staircase instantly pointing to high quality fixtures and fittings. Under-floor heating runs throughout the ground floor. The use of natural materials continues into the dual aspect lounge which has oak flooring and exposed beams. Accessed through double internal glazed doors, this lovely sunny room is flooded with natural light through a large picture window, while in winter it takes on a warm and cosy feel thanks to the gas stove in the exposed brick inglenook. The bespoke kitchen is very much in keeping with the property's rural character with cream timber units and granite worktops, a Belfast sink and a range cooker set in an inglenook. A practical utility room is accessible from the kitchen. The versatile ground floor continues to an en suite bedroom, ideal for a family member of limited mobility or easily used as a second reception room, a home office or playroom. The oak stairs lead up to a pleasant landing with skylights. The luxury features continue on the first floor where each of the three further double bedrooms has its own en suite facilities. Two have baths and the master suite has a shower; they have stylish tongue-and-groove panelling and contemporary fittings. All the rooms have character with exposed beams or interesting roof lines and some have fitted storage. The property is beautifully presented in neutral decor throughout and can be moved straight into and enjoyed. It even generates some income thanks to solar panels that come with a feed-in tariff. The property also has a detached double garage. Just five miles west of Durham, Sycamore House is ideally located on the edge of the village and within easy reach of city amenities and main road and rail transport routes north and south.
