Ling Riggs, Weardale, DL13 1HN £695,000

West House is a fantastic opportunity to start a new life in the country in a stone farmhouse with land and the added potential of being able to generate income too.
The property, which stands above Ireshopeburn in the Durham Dales, could be the place to build a holiday let business or, alternatively, would be ideal for a multi-generational family. Extending to more than 3,000sq ft, it comprises a five-bedroom farmhouse and an attached two-bedroom barn that, with some adaptation, could be completely self-contained.
The main house has a variety of ground floor spaces making it extremely versatile to meet individual needs. From the front hallway, these comprise a large family room with ceiling beams, an open fireplace, parquet floor and French doors to the garden, a music room and lounge with vast stone inglenook fireplace. Beyond, the farmhouse kitchen leads into a conservatory from which there is access to a study, garden room, a utility room and cinema room together with a range of WC and bathroom facilities. The dining kitchen is fitted with modern cream units with timber worktops, a Belfast sink and a Rayburn range cooker.
All the spaces can be used as they are laid out currently or adapted for different family circumstances. The five good size bedrooms are all on the first floor; one comes with a modern fitted dressing room and en suite shower room, and there is an additional shower room serving the rest in addition to the ground floor bathroom with roll top bath.
The entire house is full of old charm and character with a mix of stripped pine doors and shutters, beams, wood panelling, exposed stonework and open fireplaces.
The barn currently comprises of a large living kitchen on the ground floor with two bedrooms upstairs.

An indoor log burner makes it a tempting retreat on chilly nights. The property also comes with approximately 4 acre fenced paddock so it would be ideal for a family with horses or livestock, or for growing produce.
