Full description

Reminiscent of a perfect doll's house in appearance with Georgian proportions, Elm House is a beautiful four-storey village home fully deserving of its grade II listing as a property of historic importance. A grand yet welcoming home, it stands proudly in Front Street in desirable Sedgefield, a quintessential English village with a green, church, shops, tea rooms and pubs. Located within the local Conservation Area, the property also lies on the Sedgefied Heritage Trail, signified by a plaque on its outside front wall. Its walled garden was a garth, bounded by a wall that protected the original village centre. Elm House dates back to the mid-18th century, probably 1730, and unusually for its location was built to three storeys high, although this is now four with further bedrooms created in the attic space, or five including the cellar, which is easy accessible with power lighting providing ideal storing space. Beautifully presented, its many original features ensure the property's period character and charm have been retained, including sliding sash windows. The period front door with its overlight opens into a bright reception hallway leading into an elegant dining room overlooking the village green. The spacious hallway continues to the kitchen, which has a range cooker and modern units, and leads open plan into a breakfasting area and a pantry. The principal reception room, with its feature slate chimney breast, is in a super position at the back of the house to take full advantage of the attractive, private garden. Windows to two sides, including French doors, allow in plenty of natural light and easy access outdoors in good weather. The garden is a delight with hidden areas, established planting and a trickling water feature.

There are two double bedrooms to each of the three upstairs floors, and modern bathrooms on two levels. A shower room and WC on the ground floor is a useful addition for a large family. The first and second floor bedrooms have views to the front while the third floor rooms in the eaves are especially characterful with exposed beams and skylights.
