Layton Meadows is nicely situated within the small rural village of East Layton which lies in close proximity to the A66 making it very accessible. The village benefits from a church and there is a thriving farm shop in close proximity which sells a wide range of local produce.
Layton Meadows has been converted by the current vendors to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The property has been extremely well planned to accommodate for extended family living. The property is entered via a welcoming entrance hall with a striking oak staircase and vaulted ceiling with the main reception rooms flowing nicely from here. These briefly comprise a bespoke cinema room with surround sound, projector and remote controlled screen together with a large and impressive sitting room, with gas fire set within an exposed stone chimney breast and large windows on each aspect. This makes it light, airy and takes advantage of the fabulous views across Teesdale.
To the other side of the entrance hall is an inner hallway with a cloakroom and an office which leads to the fabulous open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. This room has original arches which were restored in the renovation that feature large windows and French doors that lead directly out to the terraced garden. They also provide a fabulous view of the gardens and open countryside beyond. The high quality fitted kitchen has a great range of base and wall units and central island with leathered granite worktops and belfast sink, an electric Aga and fitted appliances including dishwasher, wine fridge and Rangemaster fridge. Off this there is a great family room ideal for entertaining guests with the lounge area having a gas stove set in an exposed stone chimney breast and doors out to the private courtyard. There is also a useful utility room/ boot room with a range of wall and base units, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer together with four storage cupboards. The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout.
To the first floor are six double bedrooms and each room has vaulted and beamed ceilings. The master suite has a freestanding Jacuzzi bath placed in the centre of an impressive window with Juliet balcony. The shower and WC are built within the eaves where there is also further storage. There are two Jack and Jill bathrooms which each serve two bedrooms. The fifth bedroom or guest suite has fitted wardrobes and an open plan ensuite bathroom, with freestanding bath and double shower cubicle.
Externally the property is accessed via a partly shared private drive. It benefits from a large terraced garden to the front which has been laid to lawn with flower borders, a flagged patio area and stunning views from the impressive elevated position. To the rear, there is a large private courtyard, situated behind secure gates, which also lead to the double garage with a useful store.
The property is also being sold with a small paddock which could be developed into two detached dwellings subject to gaining the necessary planning consent. Please note there is a 30 year Overage Clause on this site (further details can be obtained if required). However, the erection of stabling, garage or barn is allowable.
Layton Meadows is a property of considerable style, character and presence situated in a beautiful yet accessible location. An early viewing is highly recommended.
