Locating Willowfield in Barnard Castle is easily done thanks to an old whitewashed milestone that marks not just the town s distance to Darlington but, conveniently, the property s front gate too.The mid-18th Century, grade II listed stone confirms it is a mile into Barnard Castle and 14 miles east to Darlington and is a useful landmark to this handsome home that stands among similarly grand, detached properties on the edge of town.Set back off the road with a large parking area and double garage & workshop, Willowfield stands proudly in private grounds, its principal reception rooms facing towards the mature south facing garden at the back. Here stones terrace and paths to the front and sides complement lawns and established trees and shrubs providing a secluded and enclosed space that is neatly divided. A 1920s glass house is also located to the side leading to a orchard. Beyond the boundary hedge are views of open fields beyond towards the Yorkshire Dales.The attractive front entrance leads into a large bright vestibule and on to the panelled reception hallway. Straight ahead is the stunning sitting room with its full height bay window and French door that opens to the garden. To the right is an equally stunning triple aspect living and dining space, again with floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light and, as in the main living room, original parquet flooring. A solid fuel stove in a stone fireplace makes for a cosy corner.To the left of the entrance hall, a room that would make an ideal office faces the front of the property, with the kitchen opposite. Very light with modern high gloss units, the sleek space has room for everyday dining and access into the conservatory, which opens out to its own terrace for outdoor dining. A utility room and WC complete the ground floor.
