Property Details

Proudly positioned in the ever-desirable West End of Darlington we find this beautiful Victorian property boasting many of its original features whilst offering modern family living. Rarely do you find a property that blends the traditional and the contemporary with such ease.

Secluded and private, we didn't expect to find this hidden gem. As pleasantly surprising outside as it is within, we access through a gate on the ever-popular Milbank Road. If approaching from the road, wooden gates and an expansive driveway welcome you home.

Walk through the beautiful solid wood front door and step inside, admiring the high ceilings. To our right, we discover a spacious reception room with large windows to allow light to flood in. Clearly a space as ideal for relaxing with a good book as it is for entertaining guests.

Across the hall, the dining room with its stunning open fireplace and hatch through to the kitchen offers a gentle nod to it its origins. A more formal room which has doubtless played host to many happy Christmas dinners.

Back to the hall and onwards to the kitchen. Complete with Rangemaster, this traditional kitchen acts as a hub for the home and transitions into the family room.

This more recent addition with large windows and centre hinged roof lights flood the room with natural light. This space is ideal for family games nights or watching a movie with the log burner fire on and blankets.

Entertaining space like this is rare and it's easy to see how you'd transition from garden barbeques into the house for summer 'get togethers'.

Venture upstairs to the first floor, comprising of two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom where you can unwind after a hard day. Up to the next floor of the property where you will find another double bedroom with en-suite.

Separate from the main home, you will find a Studio, ideal for home-working or hobbies. This useful additional space was integrated into the recently replaced double garage.

In the summer months, you can imagine yourself entertaining friends and family in the pleasant garden. The outside space is great for growing your own produce as there are already pear, plum, and apple trees in place as well as raised beds, planters and a greenhouse.

The vendors love: How this home lends itself to family living and warm summers spent in the south facing garden.

We love: The seamless blend of traditional style and contemporary living, a true hidden gem.
