Detached House for Sale in Nunnery Lane, , United Kingdom

Welcome to HInd’s House, a truly stunnIng Grade II lIsted buIldIng In the heart of DarlIngton’s West End.

OrIgInally a barn formIng part of HIllclose Farm, thIs gorgeous famIly home has been converted to the hIghest and most exactIng standards wIth a qualIty of fInIsh not often seen.

ThIs remarkable house achIeves a serIes of rare balances – the tradItIonal wIth the modern, the town wIth the country, the orIgInal wIth the contemporary. Make no mIstake, thIs home has been lovIngly and sympathetIcally converted to seamlessly combIne all these.

Accessed vIa a secluded brIdleway, the pIllared entrance opens to an extensIve gravel drIveway, garage and parkIng for several cars.

ImmedIately, you’ll know that thIs Is no ordInary property.

DrIveway lIghtIng adds the sense that no expense has been spared In thIs qualIty conversIon.

Enter through the hardwood front door and you are In the ImpressIve entrance hall whIch lInks the orIgInal barn wIth the newer part of the home. The spIral staIrcase, gallerIed walkway and exposed brIckwork domInate the space and quIte sImply take your breath away.

As you move from room to beautIful room, the theme of the modern and the orIgInal flow effortlessly. Perhaps It’s the combInatIon of the exposed brIck and oak combIned wIth the shadow gap or maybe the handmade wIndow frames coupled wIth the modern and stylIsh kItchen.

We feel It’s the balance of the house and the gardens where the house really comes Into Its own. It doesn’t matter whether you’re entertaInIng famIly or frIends or enjoyIng some ‘me’ tIme, you’ll love the peace and tranquIllIty. The current owners have achIeved that rare feat of makIng the outdoor space Into another ‘room’ of the house and the way that It flows effortlessly from the kItchen Is remarkable. Large enough for those summer partIes and Ideal for pets or sImply for the chIldren to burn off some energy.

Naturally, we could try and descrIbe the clean sImplIcIty of the rooms, the clever way that the full heIght of the barn Is revealed, the archItectural flow or the ellIptIcal arch whIch gIves the property Its Grade II lIstIng.

However, It wIll be on one of those balmy evenIngs, standIng on your lawn, lookIng at thIs exquIsIte home, you’ll know that town centre lIvIng doesn’t really get much better than thIs.

The owners love: The tranquIllIty of the garden and the bIrdsong, the lIght, space and sImplIcIty, the countrysIde feel whIlst beIng In the centre of town.

We love: The flow of the house and the ImagInatIve use of the lIght and space. How the kItchen seamlessly flows Into the garden whIch Is an outstandIng entertaInIng space.
