Esh Winning, Durham, DH7£1,300,000 Offers in the Region of 6 Bedroom House
Flass Hall is a substantial Grade II listed stone built period residence of immense charm and character.
It provides a spacious individual family residence which has over the years been tastefully and sympathetically updated and improved. It is a visually appealing property which has in recent times been divided into two separate more manageable homes.
Understood to date back to the 1500's, considerable restoration and improvement works were carried out in the late 1960's and early 1970's and have continued since. More recently since our clients purchase of the property in 2005, the property has been substantially renovated and improved throughout with a tasteful blend of contemporary and traditional features. It has also been extended to provide a most pleasant garden room. It is thought that Flass Hall was originally the home of an agent who looked after the ancient Esh Estate and according to rumour Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector, once visited Flass Hall and had tea under an oak tree outside the house.
Occupying a private and secluded site of approximately three and a half acres, it overlooks surrounding picturesque open countryside and parts of the Deerness Valley, providing a peaceful and tranquil setting and a semi rural environment.
It provides exceptionally well appointed and spacious accommodation with gas fired central heating, numerous period features and briefly comprises on the ground floor: reception hall, drawing room 22'7" x 18' with French doors leading through to a garden room, dining room 18' x 17'3", morning room 18'9" x 12'10", fabulous modern kitchen 15'9" x 14'3" which leads to a most useful good sized utility room, along with a gym and ground floor shower room. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, all having en suite facilities which have been refitted and tastefully refurbished by our clients. The second floor has been converted into a self contained apartment and could be used for additional bedroom accommodation and currently comprises: landing, lounge/dining room 26'9" x 19'2", kitchen, two bedrooms and a refurbished bathroom/wc. There is a substantial garage block with garaging for three cars and staircase to the first floor where there are two rooms suitable for workshop, storage etc. As previously mentioned, the total site area extends to approximately three and a half acres where there are extensive formal lawned areas and paddocks, along with an abundance of mature plants, trees and shrubs.
Access to Flass Hall and the adjoining Flass House, as well as a nearby property called The Stables, is via a long sweeping tree lined drive. On approaching Flass Hall the stone facade and extensive grounds will not fail to impress.
Whilst being a grand and imposing country home, Flass Hall affords good access to Durham City Centre and other regional centres including Sunderland, Newcastle, Gateshead, Darlington etc via a good road network including the A(167) Highway and A1(M) Motorway.
All in all, a superior property which must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
