4 Bedroom House For Sale: 2 South Terrace, Croft-on-Tees, Darlington


Jasmine Cottage is a picturesque Georgian property which occupies a superb, elevated position in the historic village of Croft-on-Tees.
With original parts dating back to the 1730s, the property, one of three in South Terrace, overlooks the village, River Tees and the church made famous by Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland.

The beautiful house has an attractive garden to the front enclosed by walls and hedging, offering an open aspect that ensures light and bright interiors.

Presented to a very high standard, with stripped period doors and sash windows with original shutters and window seats, the house has traditional character but also meets modern demands with a large open plan dining kitchen running across the back of the property.

Clearly defined spaces for cooking, eating, relaxing and studying are brought together with Travertine flooring and underfloor heating throughout this excellent space, which continues on to the dining room and linking rooms perfectly for entertaining. In the kitchen, additional light comes from a skylight above the marble worktops, painted oak units and centre island with integrated appliances.

Two generous reception rooms – a relaxing living room and the formal dining room – are at the front, each with fireplaces and solid wood flooring reclaimed from a school hall in the dining room.

To the back of the house, is an extensive paved patio for outdoor dining that leads into a lawned garden with summer house and garden shed both with power and lighting.

Upstairs, all four bedrooms are generous doubles, with the master and second bedroom overlooking the front of the house. The master has a traditional cast fireplace and both have built-in cupboards. A guest room located to the rear comes complete with a shower cubicle and vanity wash basin.

The glamorous bathroom has a marble-topped vanity unit, free standing roll top bath and a separate shower.

An additional bonus to the main accommodation is a studio attached to the side of the property with power lighting and timber flooring. This versatile room could be used for an office, studio or workroom.

Parking is well catered for having an extensive paved drive and a double detached garage with boarded loft for additional storage.
