Detached home with equestrian facilities. Low Lambton Farm, Old Penshaw, is a picturesque hamlet discreetly positioned midway between Sunderland and Chester Le Street and equidistant to Wearmouth Golf Club, Lambton Park, the A19 and A1M. We are delighted to offer a rare opportunity to acquire this stunning rural retreat suitable for equestrian purposes. Set within approximately one acre and enjoying a superb woodland situation on an old dairy farm, Low Lambton Grange is a beautiful detached home with the potential to create an adjoining self contained apartment (perfect for a granny or teenager flat) and boasts an open aspect with magnificent unrestricted views over the Countryside. Designed and built by our Clients for their own occupation in a small settlement consisting of five houses (the origin of the Farm can be traced back many centuries); the property has been beautifully constructed using a subtle blend of new, reproduction and reclaimed materials. This was to achieve a period appearance in order to harmonise with the nearby restored dwellings.
The well proportioned internal living accommodation comprises of a principal lounge, sitting room, living kitchen (perfect for entertaining!) utility/boot room, ground floor wash room, four first floor bedrooms, two en-suites and a family bathroom whilst a superb workshop incorporated within the main body of the house with its own separate staircase, has dual Planning Permission for both residential and light industrial use and would therefore be perfect for business owners/home workers.
To the exterior; there are 3 garages (one with permission for use as a workshop), 2 of which could easily be converted into stables leading directly onto the paddock belonging to the property, whilst there is also a large outhouse. The property itself is encompassed by lovely gardens, a paddock, fields and a large courtyard. Benefiting from a host of wonderful features including redwood double glazed sliding sash windows and oil fired central heating; both main living rooms feature reclaimed fireplaces and all internal doors are crafted from reclaimed pitch pine and boast a mortise & tenon four-panel Victorian pattern with matching quality brass furniture and heavy moulded architraves. Well removed from the hustle and bustle of City life, yet perfect for commuting, this gorgeous home is arguably one of the finest currently available on the open market and must be seen to be appreciated.
