Situation
1 Westerton Heights is a relatively new property in the village of Westerton, midway between Bishop Auckland and Spennymoor, in County Durham. Set in a rural location, it is surrounded by countryside and farmland with the village's elevated position offering outstanding views of the area. In fact, the hill on which Westerton stands is said to be one of the highest points in the county.

Although rural in character, the village is just minutes from the main A688 route that leads north to Durham City and south towards Teesdale. The shopping, social, cultural, leisure and historical facilities of the city are just 15 minutes away, while Spennymoor and Bishop Auckland meet every day needs.

In spite of its small scale, Westerton has a claim to fame as the location of an observatory built for the locally born astronomer Thomas Wright, who was the first to describe the shape of the Milky Way. There is further, more ancient, history at nearby Binchester, famous for its Roman fort.

The nearest primary schools are in Spennymoor and there is a choice of secondary schools, including the newly converted King James I Academy in Bishop Auckland.

Westerton is ideally located for commuting to other parts of the region via the main A1(M), A690 and A68 road routes, East Coast mainline rail services from Durham and flights from Newcastle International Airport.

Property
With the needs of a modern family at its heart, 1 Westerton Heights is a particularly stylish home that has been designed for comfortable, easy living. Set over three floors, the five-bedroom property is presented to the very highest standard, with immaculate décor and fittings throughout.

Living accommodation is largely open plan and spacious so ideal for busy family life, but not at the expense of privacy, luxury and the opportunity to find quiet space in which to relax.

The reception rooms comprise a smart, contemporary lounge that is dual aspect and has French doors leading into the garden, and a bijoux sun room with fully glazed roof and large windows on two sides to maximise light and heat. An exceptional feature of the property is the open plan dining and living kitchen, an excellent and substantial space that is truly the heart of the home. Bright, modern and practical, it serves many functions, with the latest appliances and well designed kitchen for cooks, a relaxing breakfast bar, space for formal dining and an additional sitting and leisure area with large picture window. It is difficult to imagine needing to leave this room since it meets all family needs so well.

The first floor comprises four stylish bedrooms and a chic family bathroom. The second bedroom has a beautiful en suite with double shower.

The second outstanding feature of the property is the master suite, which benefits from exclusive use of the second floor. Built into the eaves, this is a lovely, private space with character and a large, open plan bathroom that is beautifully appointed with a bateau style bath and other contemporary fittings.

Directions
Westerton lies on a C road to the east of the A688 between the roundabouts at Coundon Gate and Middlestone Moor.
