BEAUTIFUL 3 BEDROOM REFURBISHED HOME ORIGINAL FIREPLACES OPEN PLAN BREAKFASTING KITCHEN
EXPOSED BEAMS, BRICK AND STONEWORK IN THE SOUGHT AFTER VILLAGE OF GREAT STAINTON SUBSTANTIAL GARDENS

Whitesmocks is a prime property, in an equally beautiful setting, that has undergone a complete refurbishment to enhance its many original features within a stylish modernisation.
The work has exposed beams, brick and stonework and original fireplaces to offer plenty of rural character, yet these have been combined with a luxury bathroom, a fabulous country-style kitchen and contemporary décor that s warm and welcoming.
Believed to date back the 1700s, making it one of the oldest properties in the sought-after village of Great Stainton, the renovation has brought it very much into the 21st century. A biomass boiler and heating system has been installed providing a tax free income via the feed-in tariff of up to £23,000 over the next five years. Importantly, it ensures a modern and energy efficient central heating system, which is supported elsewhere in the property by a new damp-proof course, rewiring and heritage two-tone windows throughout.
From new ceilings to Karndean parquet-effect herringbone flooring in the hall and dining room and solid oak panelled doors with some handcrafted ironmongery, no stone has been left unturned in creating a truly beautiful home.
The ground floor living accommodation is spacious and bright, beginning with the hall that leads straight through the house to the private garden at the back. To the left of the hallway is a small cloakroom and to the right is a dining room, with a stove in a brick inglenook and alcove book shelves, which is conveniently open plan to the breakfasting kitchen. Here, the cream units are complemented by black granite worktops, a black range cooker and travertine flooring. Both these rooms have views front and back. A back door from the kitchen leads out to the stone patio for outdoor dining, sheltered by a hedge.

CONT
To the left of the hallway is a stunning lounge with two sets of French doors to the terrace. An extremely attractive room, it is both cosy thanks to the substantial timber beams and stone inglenook fireplace, yet is also light and airy with the twin French doors naturally dividing the room into two, perhaps seasonal, sitting areas. Throwing open the doors to the Yorkshire stone paved terrace in summer creates a superb entertaining space with the brick garden wall providing shelter and creating a south-facing sun trap. Stone steps lead down to the lawn, with lovely countryside views over the garden fence beyond. The views are shared from the first floor by all three of the thoroughly charming double bedrooms. The master bedroom is full of character and charm thanks to interesting rooflines and, along with the third bedroom, has a fireplace. The second bedroom is dual aspect and comes with fitted wardrobes and an old school radiator. The family bathroom has been stylishly refurbished with chrome fittings, part panelled walls and a freestanding cast iron bath, a separate shower room is equiped with a mains fed shower and stone basin. The tasteful style of the interior even extends outside where an oak frame car port has been added to the side of the property with a block paved floor and stable doors that lead into the garden and on to a timber workshop. The pretty garden has well maintained planted borders, neat shrubs, trees and a manageable lawn, complemented by a small greenhouse and raised vegetable beds.
LOCATION
Located approximate mid way between Darlington, Stockton-On-Tees and Sedgefield, the village is home to The King's Arms, a 17th century coaching inn which has a fine reputation for good food and hosting community events. Local shops are available in nearby Middleton St George, Sedgefield and Newton Aycliffe with the nearest primary school just under 2 miles away. Homes in Great Stainton are highly sought after, thanks to the rural setting, with opportunities for horse riding and walking combined with the close proximity to Darlington and excellent transport links via the A1 (M).
