St Laurence's Church dates to 1871 and was designed by the Darlington based architect JP Pritchett. The imposing and ornate property is constructed of squared rock-faced sandstone in narrow courses with ashlar dressings under a Welsh slate roof. An octagonal stone spire rising from a tower incorporates an octagonal belfry with trefoil headed bell openings and ensures that this is a remarkable focal point of the property. The ornate stone work around the pointed arch stained glass leaded windows incorporates carvings of royal figures and the buttresses around the property contribute to its solid and impressive stature. This is a wonderfully attractive property with a wealth of original features both inside and out. The accommodation has been designed to take advantage of the space and light inherent in the property with open plan living accommodation and a good use of void spaces to draw light throughout the property.
An entrance porch opens into the full height entrance hallway and staircase which is flooded with light from the large circular stained-glass window above. Much of this level accommodates the main reception areas within the Nave with a focal point kitchen located upon and in front of the original alter. A range of high specification cabinets, worktops and appliances create a modern and spacious kitchen area. In addition there is a large dining space and living room area as well as a snug within the North Transept. A games room occupies what was once the vestry of the church where there is also a WC and utility/cloaks. A spiral staircase winds up to the first floor
The first floor has an open galleried landing with part glazed floor and balustrades gathering plenty of light from other parts of the property. On this level there are three double bedrooms served by a modern and stylish family bathroom, one of which has an en-suite shower room. There is an elegant modern family bathroom to serve the other bedrooms. The second floor has the benefit of the vaulted beamed ceiling which becomes a stunning feature in the master bedroom which has a dressing area with fitted robes, an en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and a Juliet balcony which opens out into the void overlooking the Chancel.
A private driveway from the main road leads up to the property where there is ample parking and lawned gardens with hedged borders which wrap around the entire property.
