Why We Love It

Built in 2012, Little Holmside Farm is a spacious country house that perfectly brings together modern comfort and classic charm.

It’s discreetly located on a private road with a rural feel, yet close to amenities and transport routes.

Step inside, and the entrance hall is all about making a statement, and what better way to do it than with a wooden and wrought iron staircase and a handy cloakroom.

The dining room flows seamlessly into the kitchen, which is decked out with a cool curved island and French doors leading to the backyard.

Oh, and don’t forget about the utility room – it’s got you covered with storage, laundry, and a cosy spot to kick off your muddy boots.

Now, let’s talk about the family room. It’s got a sky-high ceiling, a fireplace, and some pretty awesome views. Plus, it connects to a guest bedroom and a sweet sitting room that opens up to the garden.

Heading upstairs, you’ll find a landing that’s pretty much the star of the show. It’s got a high ceiling, that was made to be graced by a dazzling chandelier, and loads of natural light pouring in through double doors onto the balcony.

The main bedroom is a spacious retreat with its own dressing room and a chic en-suite bathroom. And there are two more bedrooms with their own snazzy en-suite shower rooms right across from the main one.

The property sits on approximately 1.68 acres of fantastic countryside, with beautifully landscaped gardens, gorgeous patios, and a gazebo for covered outdoor dining, perfect for this time of year. 

More Than Meets The Eye 

The basement is the ultimate hangout spot. It features an amazing leisure suite, complete with a large games room where you can kick back, play games, and let loose.

And wait, there’s more! A home cinema for cosy autumn movie nights and a gym with its very own bathroom – what’s not to love?

But that’s not all, this level also has a couple of double bedrooms, each with their own shower room. So, if you’ve got guests in town or teenagers who want their own space, you’re all set!

Heading outside, there’s an integral garage and a detached garage/workshop combo with a carport that can snugly fit two vehicles.

And here’s a little bonus: there’s a stone outbuilding tucked away in the garden’s corner. You can use it for storage or, if you’re feeling adventurous, maybe turn it into a summer retreat or extra living space. 

Location, Location, Location

Little Holmside is snuggled in the charming Craghead valley of County Durham, surrounded by stunning countryside and a stone’s throw away from the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you’re looking for a bit more hustle and bustle, you can scoot over to nearby Lanchester. There, you’ll find a bunch of handy everyday amenities, like shops, a little supermarket, a farm shop, and more.

If you need some retail therapy or extra recreational options, Consett isn’t too far away.

And for those seeking a touch of history and culture, the magnificent city of Durham is easily accessible, offering a boatload of professional, cultural, educational, and opportunities.

For those who need to commute via car, Little Holmside’s location is perfect. The A68 offers easy access north and south, connecting you to the motorway network and the A69 for speedy trips to Newcastle in the east and Carlisle in the west.

The A691 can also get you to Durham and Consett in a jiffy.
