Three bedroom barn conversion near the city of Durham
Grade II listed, brick and stone built barn, sympathetically converted with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. The property is located just three miles from the university city of Durham
Byers Garth Farm is an exclusive development of bespoke, converted farm buildings accessed via a private, picturesque driveway.
At the centre lies 'The Cottage' - a Grade II listed building dating back to the late 1800’s, sympathetically converted in 2007 into a warm and cosy home.
The building is of brick and stone construction with terracotta roof tiles and cast iron guttering and employs the latest building practices including extensive wall and floor insulation.
The Cottage provides a truly unique home and a lifestyle combining a taste of rural living with the conveniences of city life.
The location of the property could not be better. It is three miles to the south east of Durham City and enjoys a DH1 postcode.
Traffic links throughout the area are superb with Junction 61 of the A1(M) located only three miles to the west, whilst the A19 is within short reach to the east.
An additional advantage of the semi-rural location of The Cottage is it’s accessibility to many country walks and footpaths, ideal for summer strolls into the local villages.
The property features a spacious lounge / diner with picture window and double doors leading to a pleasant kitchen fitted with country style cabinets and traditional Belfast sink.
To the rear of the home are three bedrooms (two large and one small) with solid oak ledged doors.
A superb bathroom fitted with oak style cabinets, towel radiator, illuminated vanity mirror and luxury freestanding shower bath is complemented with contrasting porcelain tiles, glass mosaics and marble worktops.
All rooms feature vaulted ceilings, exposed 'A' beams, timber sash windows, oak flooring, bespoke blinds and TV / telephone wiring.
The Cottage also benefits from a combination boiler heating system, intruder alarm and hard-wired smoke detection.
To the front there is parking for two vehicles.
A private courtyard to the rear captures the sun beautifully throughout the afternoon and evening.
