Blackwell Scar, Darlington, DL3
5 bedroom detached house for sale
Make no mistake, this is a true statement home. Occupying a prime location on one of Darlingtons most sought after cul de sac's, it's almost impossible not to be impressed by this fabulous detached house.
Approached via a tree-lined driveway, the house is set well back from the road for additional privacy. The large double garage commands the front of the building.
Once inside we feel most striking this is the size and dimensions. The rooms are well proportioned and date back to a time when houses were built with more generous living accommodation. Yes, the decor is in need of updating but for a property to have been owned for so long, clearly, its been loved and looked after. As you enter the hall with its sumptuous wood panelling and enter the lounge, you'll be struck by the wonderful views of the garden via two large bay windows. Not something you see every day.
An additional reception leading from the hall easily lends itself well to a study or home office.
The kitchen gives a fabulous insight into a previous age with its pine panelled ceilings and Formica work surfaces.
The separate dining room has double doors which are aching to be opened to the garden on those warm summer evenings.
Upstairs, five wonderful large bedrooms, separate WC/shower room and family bathroom are accessed by a magnificently large landing.
Outside, the gardens are extensive, the front particularly so. With its large lawn, well maintained flower beds, pond and brick built pergola, clearly this space has been cherished over the years.
To the rear is a west facing garden of two halves. Immediately behind are the patios, manicured lawn, and mature flower beds that you'd expect of a house of this stature. However, venture further and you'll find a wonderful winding path to the edge of the grounds with the River Tees beyond. Here you'll find a habitat perfect for wildlife or the occasional game of 'hide and seek'. The gardens are, without doubt, a perfect space for entertaining - be that friends, family or boisterous youngsters!
A small outbuilding with storage and a WC complete this quite exceptional package.
