Property Details

Driving down the gravel lane at Stapleton Green, Thorncroft is sure to catch your eye. This quintessential Georgian cottage built in 1750 is a true picture-postcard property. Flower pots overflowing with fragrant lavender greet you at the front door and you can almost hear Jimmie Rodgers' English County Garden playing in the distance...

Step into the cosy embrace of the living room and the property is sure to capture your heart. An exposed brick fireplace houses a log burning stove and exposed beams and stone work adds to the character of the room. Even the most avid sun-worshippers are sure to be wishing for crisp winter eves so that they can cosy up by the roaring fire to warm their hands on a mug of hot cocoa - or perhaps their bellies with a large glass of wine! Downstairs also offers a second reception; perhaps a less formal sitting room or even a playroom for those with little ones. The second reception room boasts equally as fabulous exposed beams and a feature fireplace to be envied.

They say that the heart of any home is the kitchen, and there is no place where this could be more true than here at Thorncroft. The large kitchen/breakfast room ticks all of the boxes you'd have when dreaming up your traditional cottage-style kitchen from the range cooker, solid wood work surfaces, Belfast sink and even an over-head pan rack. But this kitchen is both stylish and practical, offering access to the garden to the side of the property as well as a utility room and convenient downstairs cloakroom. This fabulous space flows effortlessly through to a timber construction conservatory which overlooks the beautiful East facing garden. Whether it's Saturday night drinks or Sunday afternoon cups of tea there is no better place to spend time with family and friends.

Upstairs this fabulous home continues to impress. To the rear of the property is the large master bedroom, made light and bright by dual aspect sash windows, the master bedroom also boasts an en-suite shower room. The en-suite has been designed with the property's heritage in mind and features stunning wood panelling and high-cistern WC. The first floor also plays host to two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom which is currently being used as a home office. The spacious family bathroom services these additional bedrooms and features a stunning claw-foot free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle.

If the inside of this cutesy cottage wasn't enough to convince you then outside is sure to seal the deal. To the front of the property there is off-street parking for several vehicles as well as access to the garage via the traditional wooden door. The beautiful garden boasts well-stocked borders and mature trees and bushes as well as a spacious lawn. The bottom of the garden benefits from a decked seating area overlooking the river Tees beyond and the current owners have a chicken coop and children's play set here making it a space that the whole family can enjoy.

The village of Stapleton is a popular location amongst families looking for the perfect balance of rural and urban living. Stapleton benefits from a popular village pub, The Bridge Inn, as well as Highbank Nursery School. However, for further amenities Darlington town centre is only a short 5-10 minute drive away and the village also falls within the catchment area for schools in both Darlington and Richmond which can be travelled to by the regular bus service.
