Tenure: Freehold

Every once in a while, a truly exceptional family home comes to market.

If your next family home needs to be a true statement property but you need to be close to Darlington's town centre, then this surely must be the property for you.

Increasingly we're seeing more discerning buyers with older children moving to the centre of town to sample a slightly more urban way of life. The need for an outstanding and generously proportioned family home but within a short walk of schools, colleges, transport, employers, shops, bars and restaurants has never been greater.

As you approach the property, the first thing you notice is its sheer size and scale. You'll then immediately appreciate the high hedge to the front which makes the property feel surprisingly secluded and private from the road.

Once inside, staircase dominates the hallway with its lush dark wood panelling and parquet floors. The downstairs cloakroom, storage cupboard, the study, the lounge and the dining room, are all accessed via the hall. Each has its own feel but each retaining the original charm of the period features but with a contemporary edge. There's no doubt you're in a period property but equally, the finish is outstanding.

As you move from room to glorious room, taking in the fireplaces, coving, latticed ceilings, light and space, you feel immediately at home; it's clear that this is a house that the owners have loved and love living in.

To the rear, the kitchen/breakfast room which is clearly the hub and heartbeat of the home. The wonderful inglenook fireplace combined with a range of quality oak wall and base level units, black laminate worktops, ceramic inset sink and Rangemaster range cooker complete this spacious, bright and airy room.

The separate utility room and garden is accessed from the partly glazed back door to the rear.

The west facing garden is a treat - big enough to be a wonderful entertaining space for summer barbeques and parties and small enough to be a little oasis as you sit in the quiet next to the pond on the patio.

2 cars are easily accommodated on a hardstanding to the rear and accessed by the service road. The garden is secured by a roller door and this area provides that vital and much sought after off-street parking.

Upstairs via the grand main staircase and feature latticed spindles to the landing. Bathed in light from the beautiful feature window, the landing gives access to 4 bedrooms (two with beautiful en-suites) and main family bathroom.

The stairs to the third floor are also situated here. Once at the top of the house, you'll find another 3 bedrooms and shared shower room.

Properties which combine the original elegance with such magnificent living space rarely come to market and we're confident of changing the 'for sale' sign to 'sold' shortly.

The owners love: The location and convenience of living so centrally, the room sizes, the 'feel' of the house.

We love: The dimensions and sheer size and scale of this beautiful home, the fireplaces and staircase, the off-street parking.
