About the property
Totally unique opportunity to acquire a magnificent house, as well as six residential building plots within the walled eight acre grounds. Brackenhill House was built in 1930s by the Horden and Blackhall Coal Company as a Colliery official's house, but to a design which gives it an older and more elegant appearance. The accommodation now combines six spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, four reception rooms, including a magnificent oak hall, staircase and landing with modern features including a stylish kitchen, sauna and oil central heating. Externally the walled grounds, which in past years provided fruit and produce for the house are still covered in fruit trees, woodland and pasture along with a picturesque terraced rear garden. Access from Shotton Lane is via a sweeping drive and wrought iron gates - what an entrance!
Planning Permission has been granted for the development of six executive detached houses within the grounds. Each of the plots is generous, but the size of the site is such that Brackenhill House will retain a substantial garden.
Brackenhill House is situated adjacent to but far enough away from the A19 in an excellent position of commuting. Access is via the village road from the south entrance of Shotton Colliery. Major commercial centres of Tyneside, Wearside and Teesside as well as the splendors' of Durham City are all within comfortable distance.
