Tinkler Hill, Shotley Bridge, Consett, DH8


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A substantial and spacious individually designed detached house with a sizeable and picturesque plot situated at the end of this lane within this secluded and sought-after location in Shotley Bridge, with the additional appeal of two outbuildings that offfer the potential for conversion to further accommodation (subject to planning consent).

Built in 1977 and with several interesting and progressive architectural features, Barn House offers over 2,300sq.ft. (214sqm.) of accommodation that should appeal to family buyers in particular. Accessed from Benfieldside Road, close to the junction with Snows Green Road, Tinkler Hill is a private road that is jointly owned and shared with the neighbouring property. The gardens surround three sides of the house, with extensive lawns, paths, mature borders and fruit trees, while the low-lying Tinklerhill Gill (small stream) runs through part of the land, which also includes a woodland area with tree preservation orders.

The house has a covered entrance into the spacious hallway, an open-plan and split-level lounge/dining room that is almost 48ft. (14.6m) long and includes French doors at one end to a sun room and bi-fold doors from the lounge out to a covered patio overlooking the main garden, as well as a feature log-burner in one corner; the fitted kitchen includes granite worktops, a Range-style cooker and integrated dishwasher, it leads through to the utility room which provides access to the rear porch (and, just outside this, an attached store); off the hall is a lobby (also giving access to/from the utility room) and W.C. The feature oak and glass staircase leads up to the L-shaped landing, which is bathed in light from the large windows; there are four double bedrooms - including the generously-proportioned master bedroom with a dressing room through to en suite shower room - and a family bathroom that also includes a shower cubicle.

There is a double garage immediately to the front, with an electric remote-controlled door, and a large driveway, as well as the stable block, which has had a new roof in recent years and is divided into two split-level areas, with electric, and also has a cellar area. The other outbuilding, which was previously used primarily for bee-keeping, is situated through a stone archway in the additional top garden area; both buildings have the potential for further development into additional accommodation or work-spaces, subject to the required planning consents and regulations.

Agent's Note:

The house has had underpinning to the north-east corner (rear left). The prodecure was carried out in 1992, using shortboard piles, following recommendations from a structural report that found differential settlement had occurred. The owners have advised that there have been no further issues or evidence of any recurrence since.

Tinkler Hill is approximately half a mile from Shotley Bridge village, which has several shops and facilites and is located along the A694 next to the River Derwent, on the border with Northumberland. It is 2 miles from Consett town centre, which offers further shops and amenities, while the regional centres of Durham (16 miles) and Newcastle (14 miles) are both within a commutable distance. There are popular countryside walks and cycle tracks in the locality, including the Derwent Walk and the Coast-to-Coast.
