Full description

The Owls is a truly unique property offering immense opportunities for a relaxed private life in the country deep in the heart of beautiful Teesdale .
Quality of life, fresh air and stunning scenery make Cotherstone a highly desirable village location, while the property itself has the scale and versatility for a home-based business or simply to be a superb and substantial family house.
Extending to over 5,000sq ft with five en suite double bedrooms, the property can easily accommodate several generations and also has plenty of potential as a guesthouse or for offering Airbnb. New owners would have little difficulty attracting guests since the stone-built village property combines traditional character with modern interiors and facilities including a home cinema all set within a large garden plot.
Set partly over two floors, the entrance level combines an impressive reception hallway, home office, gym and cinema, with a contemporary oak staircase leading up to a glazed galleried landing and the single storey living and sleeping accommodation.
Laid out around a central atrium, which draws light into the whole space and is currently used conservatory style, the reception rooms are to the front and include a library, a 25ft triple aspect lounge and dining room with French doors opening to the garden and into the atrium.
The large, light dining kitchen has a centre island, generous preparation areas with granite worktops, a Karndan floor, a walk-in pantry next door and french doors access to a block paved patio and barbecue area outside. The main living areas are extensively finished with solid oak doors and flooring.
The bedroom accommodation is exceptional, each having good size, contemporary en suite facilities and two with doors into the atrium. The master suite takes up one corner of the house and, as well as a full size, luxury bathroom, has a large dressing room fitted with bespoke shelving and hanging space.

Amenities - The property is in a quiet location off the main road that runs through the village and is approached via a private drive leading to a detached double garage and parking area. Bordered by stone walls and hedging, there are steps to different levels creating interest and various sitting areas to capture both morning and evening sunshine.
Attractive planted borders and lawns are well maintained and there is a greenhouse, summer house and vegetable patch, all contributing to the country lifestyle.

Location - For anyone seeking a large family home, Cotherstone is around ten minutes from the picturesque riverside town of Barnard Castle with its castle, award-winning Bowes Museum, weekly market, leisure centre and a range of restaurants, cafes, shops and services. There is a village primary school and a bus service to independent Barnard Castle School, two pubs, a post office and beautiful walks along the River Tees as well as easy access to the wilder areas of the Durham Dales.
