Tucked away on the edge of the popular and well served village of High Spen you will find Lilyburn, a spacious family home overlooking adjoining fields and woodland. This modern, individual five bedroom residence offers 467 square metres (just over 5,000 sq ft) of living space arranged over two floors. Boasting two excellent reception rooms, a garden room, well-equipped breakfasting kitchen, master bedroom with en suite, two further bathrooms and an indoor swimming pool. Externally there is ample off road parking and two double garages.
Situated at the head of a short cul de sac, this superb property enjoys a commanding elevated position and sits within terraced landscaped grounds extending to 0.57 acres. The gardens are presented with a distinct oriental style design at the lower levels and planted with an amazing variety of trees and shrubs. The meandering Spen Burn brook at the bottom of the garden provides a natural water feature and large flagged terraces offer excellent areas for dining and entertaining outdoors. There is a basement room providing storage as well as housing the heating system for the property and plant system for the pool.
Lilyburn offers two driveway entrances, the main drive coming off Ashfield Court leads to a tarmac drive and to the first double garage. The secondary driveway is off Ashtree lane, with a set of double gates leading to a block paved drive which offers ample parking and access to a second double garage.
From the wide entrance vestibule a set of double doors lead to an amazing spacious reception hall featuring a staircase rising to the first floor bedrooms. All principal rooms radiate off the hall, including a sitting room which connects to the garden room, a formal dining room, the master bedroom suite, breakfasting kitchen with appliances and utility room off. The ground floor also accommodates a guest cloakroom and at the end of the hall double doors open to the pool room, pool shower room and the large main bathroom. The first floor landing offers access to four further double bedrooms and a second bathroom. Leading off bedroom two is a large space that could be adapted to create an additional bathroom (subject to obtaining the relevant consents), home office or play room.
High Spen village is well served by local amenities to include a farm shop which supplies locally sourced produce and weekly delivered vegetable boxes. There are other local shops, a village inn and primary school. The property is also well placed for access to secondary schooling and to the main road networks of the region, providing commuter links to Newcastle, Durham, Hexham, Whickham and the Metrocentre.
