Full description

Billy Hill House is a grand and imposing period residence set in its own grounds and with spectacular, panoramic views of the stunning Weardale countryside it overlooks from its elevated position. The Victorian property has been refurbished and now offers a substantial six-bedroom home full of period-style features and space to accommodate a large family. It has the large proportioned rooms, high ceilings and bay windows of an important house built in 1878, with a private, stone pillared entrance and sweeping gravel driveway. Inside, the property retains the feel of a large country house following the reinstatement of cornicing, ceiling roses, sliding sash windows, original shutters with the exception of the utility room and open fires by the vendors. Visitors are welcomed through a vestibule with a mosaic tile floor into a large hallway with pitch pine doors featuring original glazing leading into the principal reception rooms at the front, each of which benefits from deep bay windows. The formal dining room has a bespoke marble fire surround and an oak floor, making this is a very grand room for entertaining, while the comfortable lounge is decorated beautifully in an authentic yet modern style. The large kitchen is an excellent space laid out open plan with separate areas for dining and cooking. The oak units, craftsman-made by local company Staples, are complemented by granite worktops and oak flooring, a Belfast sink and a double oven range. Integrated appliances complete the successful combination of modern and character. The stone flagged floor and an original range in the utility room are fabulous features from the past, while the cellar makes an excellent wine store. An additional reception room used as a family snug could be a home office or playing room, utilising its alcove shelving and storage. The staircase leads from the hallway, turning past a feature stained glass window, and up to a lovely, open landing.
