An attractive family house with far-reaching views and beautiful gardens.
Gatesheath Hall Cottage is a beautifully presented house which offers the rare combination of the benefits of contemporary design and ease of maintenance in a rural setting.
The exterior reflects the local vernacular with attractive mellow brick elevations with a slate roof. Internally, the house has a modern plan with a large and well equipped open plan kitchen, with double doors opening into a sitting room.
The drawing room provides a wonderful space for entertaining and has a centrally positioned fireplace and, as with the sitting room, has French doors opening into the rear garden.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a reception hall, a utility room and shower room.
On the first floor is an excellent principal bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes, a dressing room and en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and two further bath/shower rooms.
The house sits in superb, beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds. It is a maturing garden created with the upmost care and stocked with a wide variety of shrubs and plants, planted in a series of formal beds separated by limestone conservation paths.
The gardens are flanked to west by the embankment of the disused railway and to the north by open fields. There are lovely views to the south over farmland.
The house is approached from the road via electric gates opening onto a paved driveway leading to the double garage and parking area.

I love the seamless blend of contemporary and traditional design within Gatesheath Hall Cottage. This lovely family home has all the charm of a period property alongside the beneficial practicalities of a recently-constructed house.Charlie KannreutherProperty agent
