Calf Hall North is the northern wing of the former Calf Hall, occupying an idyllic spot in the heart of the County Durham countryside. The property has undergone extensive renovation by the current owners, creating a spacious and versatile home whilst retaining original features with high ceilings, stone mullion windows and wooden flooring.
The principal reception rooms sit to the front of the property, offering generous and versatile living spaces. The drawing room, with dual aspects, features a multi fuel stove set within a sandstone fireplace and gives a charming focal point to the room. An external door gives access to the side of the property from the drawing room. The sitting room, again offering generous proportions, provides versatile space for dining, entertaining and relaxing with a multi fuel stove to one end. The kitchen is fitted with a range of oak units with complementary granite work surfaces, integral dishwasher, space for a range style and oil fired two door Aga. A boiler room is located off the kitchen. The utility room, with external access, has plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer with the guest WC off. The reception hall sits central to the property offering a welcoming entrance to Calf Hall North with a staircase to the first floor and access to the ground floor accommodation.
There are five double bedrooms to the first floor all leading off the landing, with a delightful bay window overlooking the grounds to the front providing a peaceful seating area. A modern bathroom features a walk-in shower, corner bath and wash hand basin, whilst a separate WC sits adjacent. A further shower room with walk in shower, wash hand basin and WC is located at the opposite end of the landing.
The gated entrance to Calf Hall leads off the road and down to the private driveway for Calf Hall North. An extensive gravel and block paved parking area sits to the front and side of the property, providing parking for numerous vehicles. The main garden is laid predominantly to lawn with mature hedging and woodland interspersed throughout and a vegetable garden to one corner.
A recently constructed agricultural building with power, lighting and water connected is currently used for stabling and storage and provides a range of versatile uses, easily accessed via a separate entrance leading off the drive.
The land accompanying Calf Hall North is currently divided into six separate fields, all of which interconnect, with water supply to two and a small holding area/restricted grazing paddock surrounding the barn.
In all the property extends to approximately 9.5 acres.
