Property Of The Week: Manor House, Weardale

Finest Properties’ property of the week is an elegantly renovated period manor house with manicured gardens in a tranquil setting…





Finest Properties are presenting us with this stunning renovated period manor house which is on the market for £1,000,000.



This picturesque country manor house is a spacious stone-built period home built in 1864 which sits in gorgeous private wrap-around manicured gardens. 


The property has been completely renovated, extended and redecorated to offer beautifully presented accommodation with tasteful décor and furnishings to complement the period style and features of the property, whilst also benefiting from modern requirements such as immaculate bathrooms with high quality en-suite fixtures and fittings and underfloor heating. 


The property is currently being run as a very successful Bed & Breakfast but is being sold as a residential property and is sure to make an exceptional family home. 



A gravelled driveway with a planted central island creating a turning circle to the front of the property really sets the scene for this beautiful period manor house. The attractive façade offers an instant feeling of grandeur. 


The front door with dressed stone arch over leads into the entrance vestibule with original Victorian tiling to the floor and onwards to the reception hallway which gives access to the downstairs accommodation, staircase to the upper floor and cloakroom.


The first of the principal reception rooms is the library which offers original period bookshelves to one wall and a wood burning stove with slate hearth and wood surround.

This room is also used as an informal breakfast and dining room and has double doors which lead to the orangery, with glazing to three sides, vaulted lantern style roof with exposed ceiling beams to the apex, underfloor heating and door to the garden. 


Off the library is the more formal drawing room, a lovely relaxing space and another room of generous proportions with recessed window with original window shutters, a wood burning stove with exposed stone to the recess and an attractive surround.


Double doors with stained glass windows above lead into the garden room offering flagstone flooring with underfloor heating, contemporary style wood burner, feature exposed stone walls and lovely views to the garden and beyond to open countryside.



Off the reception hallway is a side hallway which leads to a further reception room which is currently used as a downstairs bedroom suite with en-suite shower room. This could lend itself to a host of other uses. 


Also off the hallway is the cellar, utility room with storage and laundry solutions, secondary staircase to the upper floor and the kitchen. 


The kitchen is a room of good size and offers a practical work space with fitted cupboards, floor units and a central island with contemporary lighting over and complementary granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include an oil-fired Rayburn set within an inglenook with exposed stone wall to one side and to the opposite side a further Brittannia range style cooker with gas hobs and electric ovens with discreet under lighting. Also on offer are a twin Belfast sink, dishwasher and ample room for an American style fridge freezer. A useful walk-in pantry is also located in the kitchen.



An elegant carved staircase rises to the first floor with a picture window at half landing level flooding the upper space with natural light. 


Five spacious bedrooms are offered, most with original features such as fireplaces, ceiling roses and picture rails and all beautifully presented with opulent colour palettes reminiscent of the period. 


All the bedrooms are served by high quality and luxurious bathrooms with roll top baths, separate showers, wash hand basins, heated towel rails, WC and floor tiling with underfloor heating.


Three of the bedrooms have individual en-suites, whilst the other two share a Jack & Jill bathroom.
