Property description


Crofts Edge began life as part of a historic range of farm buildings which are believed to date back to the 19th century and were transformed in the 21st century to create an amazing detached country home offering over 4,400 sq feet of living space presented over two floors. When viewing this stunning stone built home you will see the influence of the Mediterranean in the property’s design with tiling and skirting boards running through the ground floor. It is our view that this spacious home will appeal to those seeking a family home in a rural setting or would be a great place for retirement, with bedrooms at both ground and first floor levels.

You approach the property along a private lane which is shared with three other properties, with Crofts Edge having its own area of formal garden, extensive parking, integral double garage with a loft room over and a small grass paddock. From its rural location, situated between Stanley and Consett, the property is well placed for access to Newcastle and Durham as well as main road and rail connections. The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is also within easy reach as is the Northumberland National Park, Kielder Forest and Observatory and the fabulous Northumberland coastline with its many castles and sandy beaches.

Walking through an arched timber gate, a flagged pathway leads to the front entrance of Crofts Edge where you enter a hallway giving access to the cloakroom and integral double garage. The hall leads to the social hub of the property, an open plan living area/kitchen which enjoys views of the gardens. Within the living area is a tall floor mounted cast iron stove and the kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of units at floor and wall level with stylish worktops and a fixed dining area, ideal for informal dining. Within a range of floor to ceiling units are two eye level ovens and a microwave oven. Additional appliances include an induction hob, extractor hood, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The formal dining room leads directly off the kitchen area and a set of timber double doors open from the living area to a most impressive drawing room. The drawing room is light and spacious with three windows and a white glazed tiled floor plus a modern cantilevered staircase featuring chrome spindles and handrail rising to the first floor. The master bedroom with its palatial en suite bathroom and dressing room plus a guest bedroom also with en suite are located at ground floor level. On the first floor are two further bedrooms, both with stylish en suite facilities, a study and walk in store room.

Consett and Stanley offer everyday shopping facilities and there is also schooling at primary in the locality. At a more local level Greencroft and Annfield Plain offer village amenities.

This modern home has great green credentials with an air source heat pump heating system and double glazing. Other attractions include a Regavent heat recovery system and central vac unit. The vac unit will be included in the sale.

As the selling agent we believe it will be challenging to find a property that provides all of the amazing attributes that Crofts Edge has to offer. All of the benefits of rural tranquillity combined with ease of access to the regions business hubs, glorious countryside and main road network.
