Property Description

A superb family home which must be seen to be fully appreciated. Built in 1861, this unique character property was a former Sunday School, later renovated and divided in to 2 residential properties in the 1980s. Further renovation has taken place in recent years however many period features have been lovingly retained. Extensive redecoration has taken place throughout during the last 12 months. Including newly polished wooden floors on the ground floor and new carpets throughout on the first floor. New wooden frame windows are in the process of being fitted on the ground floor and bespoke Hillarys blinds have been installed in the living room.

The large 3-bedroom property (with potential for 4th bedroom) is accessed by a wide access bridge over a small stream leading across a shared (with adjoining property) block-paved driveway to reach a substantial private parking area for several cars in front of the also private garage.

The front entrance of the main house is accessed via the original double wooden doors which lead to a large lobby area. Although this lobby currently provides access for the adjoining property, the lobby is owned by this property and potential works have already been agreed with the neighbours to re-configure the current access arrangements and provide both properties with fully private entrances. The cost of the works would be minimal should the new owner wish to proceed with such plans.

The 2-storey stone-built annexe currently consists of a garage on the ground floor with a WC room and a staircase leading to an attic room, currently being used as 4th bedroom. The annexe boasts huge potential for renovation/development to either provide permanent additional family living space, a 4th bedroom, or (with the conversion of the garage) to create a 2-storey stand-alone dwelling. The development could be used for family and friends or as a holiday let. There are no local development restrictions in place outside of usual planning regulations, and with Weardale being extremely popular with holiday makers, there’s potential to generate a significant additional income should the new owner wish to pursue that avenue.

Situated in a beautiful rural setting just a stone’s throw from the centre of the village of Frosterley, Weardale. The village has a primary school, small supermarket with post office, a village chippy and a recently renovated pub. The nearest secondary school is just a 5-minute drive away in Wolsingham.
