Full description

Tenure: Freehold



Probably the first thing that strikes you as you approach this impressive (and somewhat imposing) house is its sheer size and grandeur. Certainly if 'large executive home' is high up on the wish list, then that's the first box ticked.

Situated at the head of a quiet cul de sac, the house seems to preside over the neighbouring properties as it's done since it was built in the 1930's. Indeed, there may not be the the front garden that you would have expected but you'll forget that from the moment you step through the door.

Delicious wood panelling and a quality parquet floor greet as you enter the hallway. Properties of this era enjoyed an impressive entrance and this home doesn't disappoint.

Each beautiful room is accessed from the hall, each as beautifully finished as the next.

The lounge is a particular delight. Little imagination is needed to see yourself and the family here all year round. Whether it's relaxing and admiring the incredible views to the rear during the summer or all around the log burner and the Christmas tree.

The kitchen/diner is the heart of the house and clearly a place where the family congregate. Access to your beautiful garden is gained here and again, it takes little to imagine the doors open and a warm evening breeze whilst having friends for dinner or even the children doing homework whilst the evening meal is being cooked.

From your kitchen, the utility room is accessed as well as the integral garage.

To the first floor where we find 4 fabulous, spacious bedrooms and family bathroom. However, its the top floor and the master suite that will really take your breath away. With vaulted but not intrusive ceilings, built in wardrobe space and large en-suite bath and shower room. A feature window allowing you to look over your expansive garden and beyond. This living space is truly magnificent and we've rarely seen better.

To the rear, a garden of epic proportions. Commanding the most fabulous views you could honestly just sit and observe the countryside for hours. Mainly to lawn, the garden is clearly arranged over 3 levels, each with their own signature and feel. So whether its a small gathering of friends for an impromptu barbeque, a gathering of the family or just a childrens party that needs enough space to the little ones to let off steam, this garden has it all.

And that's probably what strikes us most about this grand old lady. Clearly, in her heyday, she would have hosted parties in keeping with the size, scale and grandeur. However, here's the rub. This home is equally at home with relaxed space to bring up the family as it is with a more formal lifestyle for older buyers.

So if you've reached the top of the tree and looking for that dream, 'statement' home, there's never been a better time to view.

The owners love: The views, the proximity to Darlington's town centre, the feeling of being in the countryside whilst living in the town.

We love: Where to start? The space and light are beautiful and it has a really 'homely' feel. The view to the rear goes without saying. The master bedroom is a true 'stand out' room for us.
