EXTERNAL

TO THE FRONT The property is reached along a lane with timber gate giving access to the gravelled driveway which opens out significantly to a parking area in front of the garage block allowing for off street parking for many vehicles. To the immediate front of the property is an enclosed lawn and garden with Acer tree, mature hedging and paved patio. Timber gates open to the large rear garden.

TO THE REAR A substantial garden with vast well maintained lawns, trees, patio and flower beds. There is a vegetable garden through a cut in the hedging and the garden is enclosed by mature hedging and timber fencing.

GARAGE BLOCK & STORAGE A fabulous detached dressed stone garage which includes a 3 car garage, car port and two very large storage rooms which could be converted into additional accommodation (subject to planning consent).

TRIPLE GARAGE Three substantial garages with storage in the eaves one extended measuring 27' 1" x 10' 9" (8.28m x 3.29m) with dovecote above and workbench to the rear. The two other garages measure 17' 3" x 18' 10" (5.26m x 5.75m) and are connected and can be accessed internally through an opening with storage above and access to further storage over the car port. All have electric roller doors, power points and lighting and there is a secure side door to the car port.

STORAGE ROOM 1 18' 5" x 17' 4" (5.63m x 5.29m) Beyond the car port is a very large storage room with vaulted ceiling, timber framed double glazed windows to two sides and lighting.

STORAGE ROOM 2 18' 0" x 17' 0" (5.50m x 5.19m) Partially converted with undecorated plastered walls, timber framed double glazed windows, power points, lighting and sectioned off areas which would be used as a shower room/WC. The space could be used as storage, home office or again converted into living accommodation as perhaps a one bedroom studio cottage.

PLANNING INFORMATION The current owner has planning consent granted to build a substantial extension to the main building which would create a fabulous four bedroom detached family home. Due to the layout and size of the overall plot the addition would have very little impact on the overall outside space. Details of the full application are available on the public access section of Durham Council's planning website or contact our office on 01207 231111.

DIRECTIONS The property is accessed down a country lane off the B6310 between Lintz Green and Burnopfield. The lane is just beyond the entrance to Lintz Farm on the opposite side of the road as you drive down the hill.
