Home Farm represents an extremely rare opportunity to own a property within an historic country estate and deer park, with all the attributes of rural living yet in a convenient location. Close to Durham City, the cottage is on the Whitworth Hall estate, the Grade II Listed manor being famous as the ancestral home of the Shafto family, including Bonnie Bobby Shafto.

The cottage benefits from charming surroundings overlooking picturesque parkland without the restrictions of a listing and the maintenance costs sometimes associated with historic buildings. It has recently undergone a superb restoration, which has introduced luxury modern living yet retained the character features that are so desirable.

One aspect the cottage shares with the manor house is its room proportions, which provide a surprisingly spacious interior ensuring it's an excellent family home. A gravel drive and parking area lead to the front of the property. The elaborate front door opens into the entrance hall leading into the dining room. Beyond is the principal reception room, a lounge with an attractive fireplace and French doors leading out to the pretty, cottage garden with estate fencing. The kitchen offering plenty storage and worksurface area, fully equipped with integrated appliances, leading to a pantry and boot room with rear access door into the cottage garden.

Upstairs there are four excellent double bedrooms with a further single bedroom and a superb family bathroom with contemporary tiling. The generous size master bedroom comes with an open beamed ceiling and contrasting wooden shutters to the window. High quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout the property, including solid wood doors, skirting and floors.

Presented in neutral style, the hard work is complete and the property now offers a blank canvas in which to make a lovely home. Home Farm is just six miles from Durham with all its city amenities and road and rail transport links. Now a hotel, Whitworth Hall is on the doorstep and the 73-acre parkland, which includes an ornamental lake with waterfowl and coarse fishing, a woodland walk and an outdoor children's play area, is open to the public.
