Bolton Farm is an exceptional family home, lovingly renovated and extensively extended by the current owners. This remarkable 3 bedroom property, which is set within beautiful surroundings and is immaculately presented, offers a superb balance of period features and contemporary touches, oozing with character and charm.

Standing in approximately 2 acres of land, this stone built property comes complete with an 8m heated indoor swimming pool, a truly impressive farmhouse style kitchen with cathedral ceilings and exposed brick walls, an abundance of reception rooms, underfloor heating throughout, double garage, workshop and stables and also boasts far reaching views across farmland.

Bolton Farm is located in the quiet & desirable hamlet of Alum Water, New Brancepeth and being less than 3 miles from the centre of the beautiful city of Durham, it is an ideal location for anyone looking for a semi-rural life, whilst also being within commutable distance of the North Easts’ major urban areas such as Newcastle, Sunderland and Teesside. The property is also in the catchment area for several “Good” and “Outstanding” Schools.

Internally a welcoming hallway with exposed stone walls opens to the impressive farmhouse style kitchen with cathedral ceilings, tiled flooring and exposed brick walls. The area is complimented by the range cooker set into the chimney and American white oak kitchen units with roll top work surfaces and Belfast sink. Adjoining the kitchen is a desirable walk-in pantry, utility room with plumbing for a washer dryer and beyond this a heating room which stores the boiler and hot water tank. Off the kitchen and up some stairs is a bright and airy study area set within a cleverly designed turret with far reaching views across the gardens and farmland beyond.

Furthermore to the ground floor is a substantial drawing room with dual aspect French doors leading onto various patio areas which are south facing and perfect for enjoying dining and drinks. The cleverly designed layout ensures that the principle reception rooms and internal heated swimming pool make the most of the outside areas.  A formal dining room, separate sitting room / snug (which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom) and downstairs wc complete the ground floor. All of the reception rooms also offer coving, ceiling roses and dado rails which all add to the character of the property.

The first floor is accessed by an impressive bespoke staircase which opens to a galleried landing with cathedral ceiling. The spacious master bedroom which boasts a walk-in wardrobe and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside, also has a generous en-suite bathroom with bath, double shower and separate toilet. The two remaining bedrooms, which are both bright double rooms with plenty of light, each have their own en-suite bathrooms with double showers, toilet and wash hand basins.

The property also comes with ample space for parking, a double garage with electric roller door, stables, a workshop, a kennel and paddock. There are two flagstone terraces which are positioned perfectly to enjoy the open views and sun throughout the day and are perfect for entertaining.
