Woodham House is a unique and exceptional property that takes home ownership to another level both literally, and in terms of scale and sophistication. The three-storey, four-bedroom home has ample space for a large or multi-generational family with a versatile layout and facilities that include a swimming pool, tennis courts and an extensive and very pretty landscaped garden extending to one acre with its own stream.In its former life as The Stag Inn and Hotel in the 18th century, its location was strategic, attracting travellers on the Great North Road. Today, the detached property, at Rushyford, enjoys the best of both worlds with easy access to both the countryside and the A1(M), Durham and Darlington. A private drive leads down from the gated entrance to a parking area and detached garage. From here, the house can be entered from the lower ground floor or up the garden path and into the main entrance at the middle level. The living accommodation is centred on the first floor and, after the generous reception hallway, comprises a large and light triple aspect lounge, a study, a formal dining room capable of seating at least 12 people, a contemporary dining kitchen and a WC. With a monochrome scheme, the kitchen has high gloss units complemented by black granite worktops and stainless steel appliances.The ground floor functions as a leisure area with the 29ft long swimming pool, spa bath and next door gym which has a mirrored wall and patio doors to the garden for keeping cool, and amenity features including a utility room, storage and second WC, with direct access to the garden and garage area. A large paved area running around the back of the house is an attractive spot to dine and entertain outdoors.The four double bedrooms are on the second floor along with two large family bathrooms.
