Stunning family home comes to market in County Durham

Uplands, a stunning four-bedroom family home with entertaining at its heart and designed to maximise the glorious views of the Tees Vale, has come to market in County Durham.

What sets this very modern home apart is the detail that has gone into creating a truly unique property which features open plan living, a family and catering kitchen, a gym, outside dining and a self-contained flat.

The building materials used to create this exceptional home are of the highest quality with the steel structure clad in rendered block and kebony with an emphasis on letting light flood in.

John Coleman, head of country house sales GSC Grays, said:” This is a really outstanding family home which benefits from an incredible architect’s design that showcases the wonderful views over the rolling farmland of the Tees Vale. It also features a separate self-contained flat and has an eye-catching outdoor entertaining space.”

All of the bedrooms face south to catch the views with the children’s bedroom boasting an ingenious ‘sleepover’ space with two cabin-style bed pods all sharing a spacious ensuite bathroom with a shower over a plunge pool bath.

The glazed sliding doors on the south-facing rooms all open out on the garden terrace with a dining area under a wide roof overhang.

The integral double garage has a separate self-contained flat above with its own private access and has an open plan kitchen sitting area, bedroom, WC and shower room. The boot room is an exceptional space with fitted cupboards and benches and a separate shower room.

The main gardens, in a plot of 0.5 acres, lie to the south of the house and are centred around a large lawn with crescent planting separating it from the terrace with an area for a hot tub. On the lower level there is an area for children’s play equipment and raised beds provide a kitchen garden space.

The pretty village of Bolam, just half a mile away, has been designated a Conservation Area and has a church and a pub well known for its Sunday lunches. Barnard Castle is only about 10 miles from Bolam while Darlington the nearest major town, is on the main East Coast rail line with links to London and Edinburgh. Teesside Airport is around 16 miles away.

Uplands is currently on the market with GSC Grays Barnard Castle Branch with a guide price of £1,475,000. For more information, call 01833 637000.
