Property description

If you seek the unique, if you recognise quality, if you want traditional appeal infused with the best contemporary fittings, then you need look no further than Wheel House. This is a totally unique architect designed residence which sits beautifully within a complex of traditional and contemporary farm buildings in the heart of East Durham's finest village. In full consultation with English Heritage, it has been sympathetically designed to be in keeping with its surroundings, and its visual impact is simply stunning. Its focal point, both internally and externally, is the magnificent octagonal shaped lounge which gives the property its amazing external appeal, as well as generous living space heavily featuring exposed timberwork, traditional stonework, stone corner columns and conservation roof lights. The lounge is the centre piece of the ground floor open living space, incorporating the lounge itself with a generous adjacent living and dining area which opens into a contemporary kitchen with adjacent utility and walk-in pantry. Other design features include a ground floor bedroom with adjacent en-suite, which supplements the two spacious first floor bedrooms, both en-suite. The specification is impressively high, typified by the underfloor heating to the ground floor with expensive tile finishes, as well as the sumptuous kitchen and bathroom fittings. The overall effect of this property is "space".

Externally, there is a walled and secluded garden to the front. To the rear there is a courtyard and access to the garage. Hawthorn Village is noted for combining ease of access to all of the regions major centres (via the A19) with equal ease of access to the rugged Durham coastline, country walks, woodlands etc. The picturesque village itself is highly respected, with village life centred around the famed village pub, The Stapleton Arms.
