  • Bedrooms: 5
An outstanding Grade II listed Georgian Farmhouse refurbished and extended to create a very fine family house, with a large garden, double detached garage with one bedroom annex above and a separate one bedroom self contained detached cottage included within the sale. Skerningham Manor is a fine double fronted Georgian property occupying an extensive site, enjoying a delightful secluded rural position with far reaching outlooks over open countryside, and in particular, towards the Cleveland Hills. The house is built in brick under a clay pan-tile roof and has undergone an extension to create a very comfortable and well-appointed family home with many period features including large Georgian windows with wood panel shutter insets. Internally there are five reception rooms including lounge with feature fire surround housing an inset log burner, separate sitting room, and stunning garden room with views to three elevations. The large breakfasting kitchen is well equipped with a range of cream units with granite worktops, range cooker, twin ceramic sink unit, centre island with halogen hob, breakfast bar area and wine cooler. Ascending to the first floor there are four bedrooms, the master suite is rather impressive featuring a period fireplace, en- suite with a roll top free standing bath and stairs leading to the attic dressing room. The second and third bedrooms share a Jack n Jill en-suite, the fourth bedroom is another double room which is serviced by the family bathroom.

Across the courtyard is a beautifully presented one bedroom cottage enjoying fantastic views over the countryside. There is a well appointed breakfasting kitchen with built in appliances and large picture windows, a cosy yet spacious lounge featuring an inglenook fire surround with an inset log burning stove with views over the front aspect from the large picture window and bifold doors.

The private gated entrance and South facing garden overlook open countryside.

AMENITIES

There is a spacious lawned garden to the south of the property and an extensive paved patio adjoining the south elevation. There are further gardens to the west. To the rear of the property is an excellent and enclosed walled yard with dog kennel and run and an open fronted 3 vehicle garage. The property is approached via a driveway leading through farmland from the south. There is an additional tree lined driveway from the west, and both lead to a useful hard standing area to the west of the main house.

LOCATION

The property lies on the north eastern outskirts of Darlington and despite its rural location, is only a 10-minute drive to the town centre. The Regional road network is readily accessible with the A66 trunk road to Teesside within 1.5 miles and with easy access to the A1 via Darlington s southern bypass. Darlington s main line rail station, together with Durham Tees Valley Airport are within a 15-minute drive.
