Property description

It is with great pleasure that Rea Estates offer to the sales market this substantial stone built family home boasting an elevated position in the much sought after Anglo-Saxon village of Witton-Le-Wear, which is situated on the banks of the River Wear and is the perfect location for those wishing to explore Hamsterley Forest, Durham Dales and the Weardale Valley. It is also an ideal base for commuting, being situated on the A68 with fast access to the A1. The major business centres of County Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear are all easily accessible.

The village itself boasts a popular Primary School, two Churches, Community Centre and two Public Houses.

Constructed in 2000 and set over three floors, this substantial property has been carefully designed for comfort and mutigenerational living. Space is another important benefit of the design of the property with all the rooms being generously proportioned both in floor area and ceiling height.

The accommodation briefly comprises; Entrance Porch, Reception Hallway, two well proportioned Lounges (one of which provides access to the lower ground level) Dining Room, Breakfasting Kitchen, Study, Cloakroom W/c and Walk in Storage Cupboard.

To the first floor a galleried landing has doors leading to a Family Bathroom and Five Double Bedrooms, two of which boast En-Suite Facilities.

The lower ground level could be utilised as a self-contained annexe or as a holiday let and briefly comprises; Lounge, Fitted Kitchen, Bathroom, a Double Bedroom and a Second Reception Room that again could be utilised for a number of purposes.

Occupying an extremely generous plot the property sits within traditional gardens which boast far reaching views over Witton Castle and the surrounding countryside.

A driveway and stone built triple garage provide off road parking facilities for a number of vehicles.

In our opinion properties of this size in such a beautiful setting are rarely available to the market and therefore an early viewing is highly recommended.
