Hamsteels Lane, Quebec, Durham

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
The high quality conversion of stone barns to create The Cornmill, at Quebec, was completed in 2010 to provide an exceptional family home. An extremely versatile property of character, its flexible layout means it can be adapted to suit a variety of needs.

The ground floor layout of the house comprises a fabulous kitchen, exceptional lounge with study area and a further large room currently used as a living room but could also provide a fourth bedroom. Floor to ceiling windows and French doors draw lots of light into the property while quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout.

The sunny, contemporary kitchen is perfect for entertaining with oak flooring, stylish cream painted solid oak cabinets, a centre island and breakfast bar, stunning marble worktops, Aga range cooker and plenty of space for dining with views through French doors to the paddock.

The lounge has solid oak flooring, a handcrafted stone fireplace with a multi fuel burning stove and French doors that open out to the walled garden and private patio. The original features of the barns come to the fore upstairs where exposed beams and trusses add to the unique character. There is also a utility room, and downstairs WC.

Two large double bedrooms, one of which has access to the original, external stone steps to the barn, share a lovely contemporary bathroom with tiled floor bath and separate shower. The master suite is pure luxury comprising a large bedroom with exposed A-frame timber trusses, a walk-in dressing room and a stunning bathroom with tiling feature, half-moon shower, double sinks and free standing roll top bath.

The property is approached via a superb block paved drive leading to an expansive parking and turnaround area and the double integral garage with electric up and over doors. The heated double garage is split into two, and one has been floored to allow for a study space. There is the potential to covert this into a new room.
