Property Details

Down a leafy lane hidden away behind a wall giving a high degree of privacy and peace one is transported into a country setting with a grade 2 star listed Farmhouse sitting on Darlington's highest point, once a farmstead with lands stretching from Coniscliffe Road to Staindrop Road. As you wander through its rooms, you'll feel the cozy embrace of its period features and the potential for infusing your own style into its timeless canvas.

Begin your tour in the inviting sitting room, where original exposed beams adorn the ceiling, suggesting evenings spent under the soft glow of lamplight with a good book in hand. Journey onward to the living room, equally snug and brimming with character, waiting for a personal touch to enhance its cozy ambiance.

The kitchen, with its hearty dining space, promises to be the heart of the home. Here, one can imagine the clinking of dishes and the warmth of shared meals, all set against the backdrop of the cottage's unique architectural heritage. This space, echoing with the potential for modern upgrades, invites you to craft a kitchen that's both a culinary workshop and a gathering spot for loved ones.

As you ascend to the upper floors, the bedrooms offer tranquil retreats, each with its own quirks and charming angles dictated by the sloping lines of the roof. These intimate spaces are sanctuaries of rest, offering a restful night's sleep amidst the quietude of their surroundings.

Stepping outside, the gardens are a delight and await for the loving touch of a green fingered owner to continue to bring bursts of colour and life to the property's serene exterior. The ample outdoor space, complete with a double garage and additional storage, mirrors the cottage's internal warmth, offering endless possibilities for alfresco entertainment or quiet contemplation.

This home sits within the catchment of highly regarded local schools, making it an unparalleled choice for those seeking a distinctive family home without forsaking the practicality of urban living. With Darlington town centre within easy reach and excellent transport links at your doorstep, convenience is just as much a luxury as the privacy offered by this property.

Its been 45 years since this beautiful home was last on the market, a clear testament to its suitability as not just a house, but a beloved family home.

Hill Close Farm, with its blend of cosy interiors, unique architecture, and an air of seclusion, is a rare find. Though it may call for a brush of modernity here and there, its essence is irreplaceable-a home that has nurtured generations, ready to welcome new custodians with open arms. This is not just a house; it's a canvas for creativity, a cosy nook of history, and a place to call your own.
