Located only 20 minutes drive from historic Durham City, and from Newcastle centre and airport, Woodside House is the perfect combination of period property with the luxury and layout for a 21st century family. Extended three times and refurbished throughout, it offers a superb and spacious detached family home of five bedrooms, three reception rooms and self-contained annex accommodation set in stunning established gardens extending to just under an acre. A further paddock of approximately 3.5 acres is available by separate negotiation. Internally all the best features of the Victorian origins have been retained, from the molded cornicing to deep skirting boards, the tiled porch and lantern room to parquet flooring, while recent renovations have enhanced the property to bring in natural light and add comforts such as contemporary bathrooms and a fabulous orangery. The ground floor layout is excellent for parties centring on the fabulous breakfasting kitchen with underfloor heating and Velux windows. This stunning space is equipped with entertaining in mind: two ovens, a steam oven, microwave oven, an induction hob and two dishwashers all integrated within beautiful timber units, plenty of marble workspace and a tiled floor. French doors open out to the garden and double doors lead through to the beautifully presented, open plan dining room and comfortable living room which has a bay window to the front and a feature fireplace. The orangery is also accessed from here, creating a superb entertaining space that can be extended outdoors to a large paved patio area. Across the hall is a family room with parquet flooring. As well as a utility room inside the house, additional outbuildings provide a laundry room and workshop.
