Property Details

Surrounded by views and nature, yet easily accessible. Discover Skerningham Manor at the end of a winding tree-lined drive, where flanking fields are harvested.

Handsomely positioned, with its elegant Georgian features looking down over the rolling lawns from an elevated perch. Parking is unproblematic, with an abundance of parking for several cars serviced by a large double garage furnished with both plumbing and electricity. A peaceful distance from the hustle and bustle of Darlington.

Admire the views as you meander to the front door, open the original solid wood door and emerge into the entrance hall. Understated elegance is evident upon entering this traditional Georgian entrance where light emanates from the stained-glass window above.

To the right, peep through into the dining room with beautiful original sash windows creating the perfect picture frame for views over the rolling manicured gardens. Slip back through the entrance and into the living room, gaze at the beauty this room possesses. Step onto the plush carpets and soak up the warmth of the fireplace.

Follow us back into the kitchen, step onto the limestone tiles adding a farmhouse feel to this grand residence. Fitted with an array of top-quality fittings and appliances, find cream shaker style units coated in a beautiful granite worktop. Notice the detailing within the solid oak worktop, hugging the curves above the large island. Step through and onto the warm oak flooring of the snug, inset beneath a large oak lintel is a multi-fuel stove, huddle up with family in front of this toasty fire and watch a Christmas classic.

Return to the entrance hallway, travel up the staircase running your hand along the smooth polished bannister. Aesthetically delightful - admire the ornate stained-glass window that greets you on the half-landing. Step onto the landing and be greeted by four sumptuous bedrooms, two of which share a practical and stylish 'Jack and Jill' bathroom. Peep through into the master suite, dressed in natural tones, notice the curved wall into a beautiful en-suite oozing with Georgian charm. Travel up the stairs and into the dressing room, a fashion fanatics paradise.
