    5 bedroom detached house for sale
    When you picture your dream family home, what do you see? There would need to be ample living space for the whole family to enjoy, a large garden for summer afternoons spent running through the sprinkler, a kitchen that can cater for those hectic tea-times, and well-proportioned bedrooms that provide everyone with a space of their own.

    Fern Hollow is sure to tick each and every one of your boxes. Originally built in 1890, the property has since been extended twice (once in 2002 and again in 2009) and is now a stylish family home laid out across three floors.

    On the ground floor you will find a large kitchen/dining room - the perfect space for family meal times there is more than enough room for everyone to be together. There is also a large living room, a downstairs cloakroom and across the landing you will find the impressive master bedroom.

    Boasting an en-suite shower room and fabulous views of the County Durham country side this is truly a master-suite to be envied. It's position on the ground floor grants it peace and quiet from the rest of the house making it the perfect place to come to and relax at the end of a long day.

    Upstairs on the first floor you will find another four well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which benefit from an en-suite shower room, as well as a stylish family bathroom complete with free-standing claw foot bath.

    The lower ground floor has been cleverly extended to provide a fabulous living space for all the family. There is a large statement fireplace with a log burning stove and patio doors which open out into the large garden. This room is the ultimate, versatile living space. Opening the patio doors makes this room the ideal haven from the heat in the summer, but draw the curtains and light the stove in the winter and this room becomes the ideal cosy escape.

    But it is both externally as well as internally that this property is sure to impress. Fern Hollow boasts 2 acres of land and several outbuildings including a large barn (suitable for keeping small livestock), summerhouse and self-contained office.

    The property and land is registered as a small-holding with DEFRA – making it suitable for owners to keep poultry (and even sheep and pigs). For those interested in living 'The Good Life'.

    As anyone searching for their perfect home will know, it all comes down to location, location, location. In 2006 Heighington was judged, by Ptolemy Dean, from amongst 11 other villages around the UK, to be the BBC's Perfect Village.

    Heighington boasts all of the amenities that you could expect from a village location; a Spar shop and three pubs, The Bay Horse, George And Dragon and The Dog Inn, which lies just outside the village. The village primary school has been rated "outstanding" by Ofsted and the village is in close proximity to Darlington, Newton Aycliffe and Bishop Auckland where other fantastic educational facilities can be found.

    The owners love - the private rural feel, the amazing morning sunrises and uninterrupted views that stretch for miles...

    We love - that fabulous lower ground floor living space opening up into the expansive lush lawn
