Woodruff Grange forms part of a select development of three stunning barn conversions located in the fabulous countryside of North Durham and overlooking Consett Golf course. Created from a range of traditional former farm buildings, the property has been skilfully converted to provide amazing accommodation complemented by gardens to the rear which extend to around 0.9 acres, a double garage and fabulous views. The exterior is very deceptive, concealing spacious living space presented over two floors. Boasting four reception rooms, a well-equipped breakfasting kitchen, utility room and cloakroom to the ground floor, whilst the first floor accommodates five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Approaching the property, you will see a three bay drive in front of the double garage and a tall arched timber door which opens to a gracious and welcoming reception hall, featuring a full height stairwell looking up to the galleried landing. So as to enjoy the garden and countryside views, the main living space is arranged to the rear of the property where you will find a cosy sitting room with an open fire, a drawing room, breakfasting kitchen featuring a two oven Aga, formal dining room with full height pitched ceiling and a gallery, a fitted study, fitness room/bedroom, utility room, store room and internal access to the double garage. At first floor level there is a master suite with dressing room, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, two further bedrooms, one with a walk-in wardrobe and a house bathroom.
There are two additional bedrooms on this floor, which are currently used as work office space and share a four-piece bathroom. In addition to being accessible through the house, these rooms can be locked and have their own separate access via a second staircase from the garage. They are therefore suited to a variety of uses such as a separate granny flat or teenage annex.
The grounds feature a number of established trees, areas of lawn, a large pond and sitting areas which are perfectly placed to enjoy the surrounding countryside and views of the 15th tee on the nearby golf course. As you are located amidst tranquil countryside, the gardens are visited by a wide range of wildlife and birds.
In terms of local amenities, the village of Shotley Bridge offers two primary schools, a pub, a local hospital, a number of artisan traders, restaurants and sports clubs. The location of Woodruff Grange is convenient for access to the A1, A68 and A69 allowing a convenient commute to Newcastle, Hexham, Durham and beyond with train connections available in all three and Newcastle Airport is just 16 miles away.
The surrounding area offers beautiful countryside to explore with the Durham Dales, Northumberland's National Park and the stunning North East coastline. Heading up the Tyne Valley you have access to Kielder Forest, the North Pennines and the Lake District, which is just over 50 miles away.
Living in this wonderful part of North Durham offers a fantastic lifestyle opportunity and Woodruff Grange provides the perfect rural retreat following a busy working day as well as being a great place to raise a family.
