Property description

The Old Vicarage is an imposing Victorian stone-built home with 12 stone built stables and approx. 7 acres of land. Situated in an elevated, idyllic location with magnificent panoramic views stretching over the Wear Valley. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a rural property ideal for those with equestrian interests and benefitting from many bridleways and riding schools nearby.

The Old Vicarage is situated in an outstanding rural location of Witton Park. Witton Park provides easy access to local amenities and has good public transport links to shops and schools such as the Ofsted rated ‘outstanding’, Toft Hill Primary School. Witton Castle lies only 1. 7 miles away, Bishop Auckland 3 miles, Darlington 15 miles and Durham 11 miles.

The property is approached through cast iron gates over a private driveway to a generous parking area. This lovely family home is accessed through a spectacular stained-glass door and into a welcoming internal hallway with porcelain tiles. The hallway leads to the formal dining room with an open fireplace, study, and downstairs W/C with a granite countertop. Also, to the front of the house is the formal lounge, which is accessed through French stained glass doors and boasts a feature hand carved, marble fireplace housing a gas fire with French fenders. The kitchen has a generous range of units at base and wall levels, contrasting granite work tops and upstands, solid wood central island and a range of integrated appliances including a Rangemaster oven. There is a hatch located in the kitchen storage cupboard to the cellar which spans the full dimensions of the kitchen. Following on from the kitchen, there are French stained glass doors leading to the opulent garden room with stained glass windows and a log burner. To the end of the hallway is a large utility/ laundry room which boasts granite worktops, oak base units, ceramic sink with a brass mixer tap.

The property oozes character with a fabulous full-length stained-glass window to the first-floor landing and matching stained glass sky lights located within the vaulted ceilings. The Extensive Master Bedroom boasts a range of fitted wardrobes, ottoman, dressing table and bedside tables with matching marble tops. There is a further three double bedrooms, one with an en suite that comprises a free-standing bath and walk in steam shower. Located at the end of the hallway is a family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath, toilet, wash hand basin, and a walk-in shower.

Externally this property has excellent south facing gardens to the front and a detached garage/workshop with a w/c and utility.

This contemporary living and the rural location go very well together and the added benefit of ‘on site’ stabling for horses makes this house even more desirable for buyers with an interest in equestrian pursuits. Hamsterley Forest is on the doorstep and provides excellent cycling and walking trails. There are bridleways which are ideal for hacking out away from busy roads.

Seldom do homes such as this become available, providing a perfect mix of modern day living whilst enjoying a rural location with easy access around the area ideal for commuters or city buyers who want a relaxing country home. We would therefore strongly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
