    Milbank Road, Darlington, DL3
    £550,000
    5 bedroom detached house for sale
    Make your way along Milbank Road to discover Briarside, a traditional Edwardian property set in its own grounds. Approach through the gates and onto the block paved drive, past the high boundary wall and the Silver Birch tree.

    You enter through a beautifully tiled porch which opens out into a spacious entrance hall. To the right, the original staircase is a striking, dominant feature, with its galleried landing above.

    Large windows, invite the light in throughout this home but nowhere more so than in the drawing room. Originally the billiards room, it takes little imagination to see the gentlemen retiring here for a game of billiards and a brandy in a bygone age. The seated bay window, frames a view of the garden and some of the many fruit trees. Gracious, well-appointed rooms abound throughout Briarside and in here, decorative coving skirts the ceilings, with a feature gas fireplace seated beneath its wooden surround.

    Across the parquet floored hall, a spacious study looks to the south, allowing the sun to filter through the large windows all afternoon. Magnificent high ceilings and feature fireplace complete this beautiful room.

    Back into the hall and then enter the abundantly light and inviting dining room. Dual aspect windows to the south and the east make this beautiful entertaining space feel light and airy.

    At the end of the hall we find the kitchen. Light oak units meet with charcoal granite worktops, interspersed by stainless steel inset sink and boiling water tap. At the end and in sharp contrast to the crisp white tiling, the range cooker offers four burners’, in addition to double ovens, grill and extraction unit above. A substantial space, with cupboards aplenty for pots, pans and plates.

    Complementing the kitchen is the utility room. With a range of cupboards and wall units, stainless steel sink, plumbing for the washing machine and the central heating boiler, this useful room provides convenient access to the garden.

    Back to the hall and before we explore upstairs, we note the downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and the storage cupboard housing the consumer unit.

    Ascend the returning, spindled staircase to reach the first floor. Here, the large landing, bathed in natural daylight through the handsome feature window on the half landing.

    Across the landing, a door leads to the master suite, light and bright courtesy of the dual-aspect windows.
    Bedroom two is spacious and neutrally decorated in cream tones allowing the natural light flow. Attached, an en-suite shower room with white tiling is on hand.

    Cheerful and fresh, the bright light streams in from the dual aspect window complimenting the soft biscuit tones of bedroom three next door. With laminated floors, this room is large enough to fit a super-king-sized bed and lends itself to being a games room, playroom, music room as well as an office.

    A fourth and fifth, spacious bedroom, with views over the garden lay next door.

    Slip through the next door for a refreshing dose of colour in the family bathroom and separate WC which complete the upstairs.

    Outside and through the gorgeous veranda to the impressive garden, we see a variety of fruit trees including gooseberry, plums, cherry and apple. Designed to soak up the surrounding views of the garden, take a seat at the patio table, watching as the flurry of tits and robins tuck into their own main course on the feeder.

    How many houses can say that they have a Grade II listed fountain? The fountain dates back to c.1866 and was donated to the town by Joesph Pease and restored by Dr Freshwater. So a little piece of Darlington’s history, literally in your own back garden.

    Those beautiful lawns flanked by mature flowerbeds are perfect for entertaining, although the children will love it for games of hide and seek.
