  • Bedrooms: 4
Dating back to 1850 this is a large three/four bedroom detached property situated approximately 10 minutes drive from Darlington. The current owners have substantially extended the property to include Oscar s Barn, an award-winning Holiday Let, currently run as a business providing extra income. Both properties benefit from an elevated position which provide outstanding countryside views to the south. Limekiln Cottage comprises entrance hallway, formal dining room and open-plan living/family rooms with patio doors to the rear gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room features a central island and makes for an extremely sociable space. The rear hallway has access to the large conservatory, WC/shower room and the spacious sitting room which has a stairway down to the utility room. A large-split level annexe adjoins the sitting room with stairs down to the bedroom area and up to a mezzanine level which leads to a beautiful Jacuzzi bath/shower room (this area has often been used as a guest bedroom for clients of Oscar s Barn ). The main entrance hallway has a hidden staircase leading down to the wine cellar. The first floor comprises a double bedroom with en-suite bath/shower room and a large master bedroom which was previously two bedrooms but could be retro-converted if required. This master bedroom features a dressing room area and en-suite bathroom. Externally there is a large gravel parking area accessed via electric double gates and features beautifully maintained landscaped gardens with a summerhouse, several patio areas and wildlife pond. Oscar s Barn offers first floor accommodation above the garage/workshop and is accessed via an external staircase which leads into the kitchen/breakfast room, separate bathroom/WC, an inner hallway with useful storage spaces and a doorway giving access to the stunning studio-style bedroom/living area. The views from this room are truly magnificent through the floor-to-ceiling windows and should be viewed to be fully appreciated.

A truly unique property with extremely flexible living accommodation which includes a separate annexe and a detached garage block with a holiday let to the first floor, which benefits from the beautiful south-facing views over the adjoining countryside.
