Letch House Farm is an exceptional choice for a family property, with more than eleven acres of land in a rural location and a practical, spacious and comfortable home. Free of any gimmicks, it ticks all the practicality boxes for family living, as well as being a stylish, modern home with open views across un-spoilt countryside at Morley, near Bishop Auckland, close to Hamsterley Forest. The grazing land and flat space to develop stabling or other facilities mean it also has potential to meet a variety of needs for keeping horses or living sustainable. The recent addition of a large detached stone garage/workshop with boarded first floor and fixed staircase offers further opportunities for a home-based business with parking area. The three bedroom, two bathroom detached farmhouse boasts generous living accommodation including a large open plan dining kitchen that s big enough to encompass a cosy sitting area with a multi-fuel stove. The heart of the home, this space is to one side of the generous reception hallway, which has an attractive and practical tiled floor and exposed brickwork. The kitchen itself has contemporary units with oak worktops and a centre island, a large contemporary range cooker and dual aspect views. Across the hall, double glazed doors open into a warm and welcoming lounge with a stove set into a brick and stone inglenook. Beyond is a good size study or playroom and a utility room. The stairs lead up to a spacious landing. All three generous double bedrooms are at the front of the house and benefit from rural views. The dual aspect master bedroom comes with fitted wardrobes and luxury en suite facilities with a double contemporary shower; the other bedrooms share a beautiful, fully tiled bathroom, all refurbished in recent years. The back door opens onto a sunken stone paved patio providing an attractive space for outdoor dining, and there is a large fenced parking area.
