This exceptional detached residence is truly one-of-a-kind, making it a highly attractive option for those seeking something unique. From its exterior, which stands out from the neighboring properties, to its spacious and captivating interior layout, this property stands apart. Nestled in an outstanding village setting and sitting on a generously sized landscaped plot, Church View is without a doubt an executive property that should not be overlooked.

Originally designed and constructed in 1976, this home has been adored and completely renovated by its original owners. The level of care and attention to detail put into the internal fittings and overall presentation is truly commendable. The impressive split level accommodation includes four well-proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also features a lounge, sitting room, dining room, and study, in addition to a beautifully fitted kitchen, utility area, and cloaks/W.C. All of these rooms revolve around a spacious hall with a raked ceiling and a gallery landing above. Furthermore, the property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing, ensuring comfort throughout.

As the name suggests, Church View is conveniently located across from the local church in this increasingly popular village. The village itself is noted for its central position, providing easy access to Durham, Sunderland, the A19, and the A1. This makes it an ideal commuter base for those who need to travel regularly.

Situated on a sprawling and meticulously maintained plot, Church View boasts manicured lawns and well-stocked borders, creating a picturesque landscape. The rear drive offers access to the detached double garage, as well as providing a hard standing area for a caravan or motorhome.

It's important to note that the rear garden has been granted outline planning permission for the construction of a detached dormer bungalow (Durham County Council application number DM/21/00045/OUT). This means that the buyer will have the option to retain the garden as is, or to build the bungalow, adding to the versatility and potential of this property.
