5 bed detached to buy in DH6

Pattinson's welcome "Glebe House" a substantial double fronted period property built in the 1870's and overlooks the village green in the village of Thornley.

The accommodation retains many period features throughout including stripped shutters, high corniced ceilings and offers excellent room proportions. Extremely versatile, the room layout provides enough space for all the family with the added bonus of a separate annex with reception room and bedroom above. This could open the options for a self-contained annex for a dependant relative. From the central hallway there are two principal rooms, one housing an inglenook fireplace with a multi fuel Clock stove. A dining room and study are located to the rear along with the kitchen.

On the first floor the two main bedrooms are located to the front and enjoy the views over the garden, whilst the remaining two rooms are to the rear along with the oversized family bathroom with both bath and separate shower facilities.

Externally Glebe House is situated behind a private gated entrance and gives access to a large parking area, double garage with electric roller doors, workshop, WC and secluded gazebo housing a hot tub. Private grounds amount to approximately half an acre with extensive lawned garden with planted boarders, orchard, and large barbecue seating area with pizza oven.

The property has previously had planning permission for a further dwelling on the land which has now lapsed. The property benefits from UPVC Double Glazing, gas fired central heating system, and solar panels.

Thornley is a quaint mining village located in beautiful County Durham, close to the East Coast. It is approximately five miles from Durham and seven miles from Peterlee. With easy access to the A1 and A19, Thornley is a convenient stop for journeys up and down the Durham Heritage Coast.
