Property description

The Property

16-18 Market Place is a fantastic character property in a truly prime location providing interested parties with the option of a wonderful private family home or to explore the potential presented by this business and lifestyle opportunity. This property has to be viewed to even begin to understand the scope of what is on offer here. It is understood that the premises license remains available.

The current owners have run a highly successful café, bar, restaurant and B&B business from the premises from 2006 until recently, and purchasers with a new vision may wish to investigate the huge potential available – subject to the necessary permissions.

The property includes the front living/dining room (originally the café bar) with cellar below, an impressive dining kitchen with central island, snug and expansive orangery and bar (formerly the restaurant). There are multiple sleeping accommodation options which have previously provided an excellent Bed & Breakfast offering in addition to providing living accommodation for the owners. The large private garden area, stone outbuilding, large wooden shed and a detached cottage offer even further scope. This provides for an extremely flexible and generous residential dwelling for a large family or a family with care responsibilities. All bedrooms are en-suite with WC, bath, shower or all three.

In all, 16-18 Market Place offers extensive accommodation and great flexibility. The combined properties offer a fantastic, long elevation with a “street scene” feel to the property providing unique possibilities in a hugely desirable village location.

The property must be viewed to fully develop an understanding of the opportunities on offer and for your future plans to be fully formulated.

Planning Permission

There is also planning permission in place to extend the detached cottage across both floors to create even more space (Durham County Council planning ref. DM/18/00329/FPA).

Local Information

16-18 Market Place is located within the small and picturesque market town of Middleton-in-Teesdale which is situated to the north side of Teesdale between the two nearby villages of Newbiggin and Eggleston and a few miles to the north west of Barnard Castle. Surrounded by glorious open countryside in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) it is perfectly placed for outdoor enthusiasts as the property is well-located for walking, cycling and horse riding with quiet country lanes and beautiful scenery with High Force and Low Force Waterfalls and the Tees Valley Railway Walk all within close proximity.

Middleton-in-Teesdale offers a bank, butchers and various other shops. There is a doctor’s surgery, public houses, cafés, French restaurant, post office, church, village hall and regular community events and activities. Barnard Castle offers a wider range of facilities with a range of shops, banks and hospital together with further recreational, professional and cultural facilities including Bowes Museum. Many of the attractions of Teesdale and Swaledale are just a short distance away as are the North Yorkshire Moors and Lake District National Park. Both Durham and Newcastle are also within easy reach and provide comprehensive cultural, educational, recreational and shopping facilities.

For schooling, there is a nursery and primary school in the village whilst secondary schooling is available at Teesdale School in Barnard Castle and the prestigious Barnard Castle School is close by providing private education from 4-18 years; Prep School 4-11 years and Senior School 11-18 years.

    Finest Properties is a modern and innovative estate agency, here to assist you with all your property requirements. We are an independent estate agency with one goal, which is to satisfy our clients. As a result we regularly receive repeat business and recommendations; our clients are our best advertisement. We know that choosing an estate agent can be a daunting task, particularly if you have experienced a poor service in the past. Our mission is to provide a professional service and evidence of this has been supported by many excellent testimonials received from satisfied clients. We appreciate that many agents promise the earth in order to secure your business but then fail to deliver once a contract is signed. However, Finest Properties has listened to frustrated property owners and has developed a business to ensure that your experience of selling, letting or purchasing property is much more enjoyable. Honesty, integrity and forward-thinking are at the forefront of our business and we are here to take the stress out of your property transactions. The past few years have seen major changes in the estate agency business and unfortunately many companies have not moved with the times or adopted modern ideas. The team at Finest Properties understand what is required to best present properties and target them to the correct demographics. Furthermore, as our business is property and nothing else, your property needs always come first.
