The Property
Kelloe South Hall is an attractive and expansive property forming part of Kelloe Hall and surrounded by glorious County Durham countryside. The original hall dates back to the early-mid 18th century, possibly incorporating an even earlier structure. Kelloe Hall is the reputed site of the home of one of Durham's Prince Bishops, Richard de Kellaw, in the fourteenth century, as well as being a courthouse after the civil war. The Hall was later owned by the Londonderrys in the nineteenth century. The history of the Grade II Listed building is reflected in the elegant lime-rendered brick and rubble construction beneath a Welsh slate roof and a host of period features. Thoughtful updates have created beautiful living spaces, and the property further benefits from a pleasant garden, further generous additional garden adjacent, and countryside views.

The property is within easy reach of Durham City Centre and all nearby amenities, providing a perfect commuter home for a host of businesses and major local employers such as Durham Hospital. Durham offers a remarkable range of cultural opportunities including the magnificent cathedral and castle.

The front door opens to a hallway and onwards to the welcoming central hall, leading to the ground floor accommodation, a wide and elegant staircase to the first floor and concealed access to the cellar. The expansive sitting room sits to the rear with a grand fireplace housing a woodburning stove. The high ceiling adds to the sense of space and the room is filled with natural light from glazed double doors that open to the beautiful conservatory. This is a hugely attractive place to relax or entertain with views drawing the eye down the private rear garden, through a thoughtfully positioned hedge arch to the countryside beyond.

The kitchen and dining room are positioned to the front elevation and flow together naturally with tumbled slate flooring running throughout. A striking inglenook with range cooker and attractive wooden cabinetry with creates a traditional country house atmosphere that perfectly represents the property. The dining room has ample space for a large table and chairs and an original cast iron range to one side.

The spindled staircase rises gently to a half landing with a wonderful window seat overlooking the rear garden and the landscape beyond, then continues to the spacious first floor landing. Another reception room is located on the first floor to make the most of the elevated position. This inviting drawing room features a window seat, again with magnificent views, and an impressive stone fireplace with a woodburning stove. This room could become a fifth bedroom should it be required. There is a bedroom on this floor with an adjacent shower room with suite comprising walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC.

A second staircase leads up to the second floor and three lovely bedrooms. Each room has a soaring vaulted ceiling with exposed ceiling beams bringing space and character. The décor is tasteful and relaxing, with neutral colour palettes bathed in an abundance of light. The views from the bedrooms are truly splendid. These bedrooms are served by a stunning bathroom with contemporary suite comprising freestanding rolltop bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC, all wrapped in gleaming tiling.

Externally
Kelloe Hall South benefits from extensive gardens that offer outstanding outside space in which to enjoy the unspoiled surroundings. A patio area at the front of the house is has room to sit amongst colourful plantings. The rear garden stretches away from the conservatory with mature hedging providing privacy. A pathway runs through the lawns to a hedge arch. Passing through the arch leads to a further garden with two sheds and a seating area. Panoramic views sweep across open countryside.

A few steps from the house and garden is a separate large garden which extends to another 0.25 acres. Lawns roll between mature trees bringing shelter and peace. Brick-built outbuildings and a raised brick planting area will appeal to keen horticulturalists.
