Extended, redesigned and comprehensively refurbished, this is a traditional stone built farmhouse, with a twist. The traditional external appearance belies the quality and contemporary nature of the internal accommodation. The stylish open plan kitchen and dining room demonstrates the very best of contemporary living (complete with a luxury range of kitchen fittings) and this is contrasted by more traditional separate lounge. There is a separate utility, pantry and cloaks/wc. The first floor accommodation is equally generous. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom suite is located to the rear of the property and features a spacious bedroom, en-suite and dressing/wardrobe area.
It is for good reason that Hawthorn Village is often described as "the jewel in the crown of Durham County". A pretty church, built in 1862, St Michaels, is the focal point of the village, with the nearby Stapylton Arms; it's "social" centre. Hawthorn is picturesque, an eclectic mix of quality houses - original, traditional, modern and contemporary - which sit beautifully together to form a highly acclaimed community. The village was developed in the Medieval period, with farming providing the main economy. The village is therefore notably differing in character to the other settlements along the East Coast, which were largely built in the later 19th / early 20th Century around the coal industry.
