Full description

Middlerush is a property offering a true escape to the country and a get-away-from-it-all lifestyle in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty with land and panoramic views from every angle.
Packed with character and at more than 3,000sq ft, it provides a superb family home combining rural charm with modern luxuries as well as the opportunity to keep animals and develop self-sufficient living in open countryside. Land amounting to approx 10 acres.
Located at Cowshill amid the unspoilt moorland of Upper Weardale, the extended property is surrounded by rolling hills with other homes in sight so offers privacy within a community and without being isolated. For many, it will be the perfect property for family life in the outdoors.
Inside, beamed ceilings, fireplaces with stoves, stone walls, sash windows and latched doors all add to the country charm.
At the heart of every farmhouse is the kitchen and Middlerush’s comes with a tiled floor, range cooker, cream country-style units, a Belfast sink and a stable door. Double doors from the kitchen open into a stunning dining room with large stone inglenook fireplace and a solid oak floor.
The lounge is similarly impressive with beams and an exposed stone inglenook with log burner for cosy nights in when the weather turns dramatic. In summer, the French doors open out to the front garden which has a lawn, shrubs and a stone wall border.
In addition to the two reception rooms, there is a substantial home office with bespoke Neville Johnson fitted shelving and desks for two and a generous utility room with plenty of storage.

Continued:- - Upstairs, the excellent layout comprises five large double bedrooms, three with en suite facilities ensuring that no one misses out on luxury living whichever room they choose.
Even so, one particular room stands out for its stunning design which incorporates a four-poster bed beneath a library area that’s reached by a ladder and with copious shelving and cupboards all built into the A-frame by Neville Johnson The spectacular range of storage continues with fitted wardrobes, drawers and under-window cupboards as well as additional shelving around the chimney breast which has a fireplace, hearth and stove. The lucky owner of this room can relax in the bath watching fish in the tank that runs alongside in their large en suite that also has a separate shower and twin basins in a vanity unit.
Two further mirror image large bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and abundant character with beamed ceilings.
The two additional bedrooms are either side of the family bathroom which has attractive tongue and groove panelling.

Amenities:- - Reached by a track approximately third of a mile off the main road, over a timber bridge and river up through the fields, Middlerush has a private gated entrance, double integral garage with electric roller doors , large gravelled parking area and a paved patio from which to enjoy the all-encompassing views. Secure dog kennels and fenced off chicken coups.
The land rolls gently down to a pretty beck and offers plenty of opportunity for keeping livestock and poultry.
