Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
It is with great pleasure that Rea Estates offer to the sales market Rumby Hill House, a stunning 3/4 Bedroom Detached Farm House, set within its own grounds and boasting a 0.75 acre site with panoramic views across the surrounding countryside.

The property is situated in a beautiful rural spot between the market town of Crook and the sought after village of North Bitchburn. The growth in popularity of property in this area in recent times reflects the combination of tranquil natural surroundings combined with accessibility and ease of commuting, the A1(M) being within easy reach providing access to the major commercial centres of the North East.

The property is a credit to the current vendors who have recently overseen an extensive refurbishment programme whilst maintaining a considerable amount of charm and appeal throughout. Space is an important factor in this property with all of the rooms being generously proportioned in both floor area and ceiling height.

Warmed via Oil Central Heating and benefitting from uPVC Double Glazing, the internal layout briefly comprises, Entrance porch, hallway with staircase rising to the first floor, a beautifully appointed lounge with multi fuel stove, a second reception room that could be utilised as a sitting room or as a fourth bedroom, a traditional farmhouse dining kitchen, sun room and utility/cloakroom.

To the first floor there is a family bathroom and three double bedrooms, the master of which has en-suite facilities.

Externally there is a range of substantial outbuildings, which could subject to relevant planning permission be converted into holiday lets but currently offer an array of storage, workshop options and as with the current vendor would be ideal for someone working from home or running their own business.

In our opinion this property will make an exceptional family home for the discerning purchaser and therefore only an internal inspection will truly suffice to fully appreciate the standard of accommodation this house has to offer.
