LAST PLOT REMAINING A flagship development for the Barnard Castle housing market. Offering high quality workmanship, coupled with slick design and attention to detail.
The Property Some of the best views of Barnard Castle can be enjoyed from Startforth and these dwellings in particular. Plot 3 views enjoys a slightly elevated position over the site and the river Tees and enjoying an unusual aspect of the interesting collection of buildings and dwellings in the town, but perhaps of most particular note is the uninterrupted and high impact view from the floor-to ceiling picture windows, of the historic Castle itself, which changes from season to season and is lit up at night time providing a real wow factor.
The overall build design is in keeping with the local vernacular and blends traditional build materials with contemporary and sleek concepts being finished with Siberian Larch cladding, local stone and cutting edge zinc rooves with excellent longevity.
This remaining property boasts luxury accommodation which provides a flexible arrangement of rooms. To the lower ground floor are three large rooms which could be used as semi-self contained living quarters, dependent upon finish and chosen fixtures and fittings. Or perhaps more conventionally as three good size double bedrooms, one being en-suite. Each room on this floor has doors out to the side courtyard with a barbecue area and could be used as a leisure suite or gym with spa facilities leading out to the private terrace for a hot tub or outside sauna. There is also practical internal access to the large garage/ workshop space from the entrance hallway. Stairs rise up through the central galleried and vaulted entrance hall and will be completed by a steel centre spine staircase linking the three floors.
At upper ground floor level a dual aspect floods the space with natural light and from the top of the stairs there is a door leading out to the sheltered south facing terrace and garden. A contemporary open plan reception room includes both the kitchen, a relaxed seating area and viewpoint to the front and two further areas to either side of a two-way fireplace which will be completed by a high-output rotating-plate stove which can be turned to face either room in use at the time. In addition to this cavernous space there is another bedroom, study or spacious yet cosy snug. The 'in vogue' living kitchens are a must have for family and entertaining space with floor to ceiling windows being positioned to take in the views yet retain internal privacy. To the first floor, a large master bedroom suite incorporates an extensive dressing room and stunning, high specification en-suite facilities including a double entry wet room style shower, free standing centre-piece bath and all of the usual luxury components. An additional large ensuite bedroom completes the accommodation on this floor meaning the space is useable for those with younger dependents.
Given the stage of the build, some input could be had to finishing touches, tweaking it to suit the needs and vision of the purchaser, subject to negotiation and agreement. Fixtures included will extend to high specification items such as underfloor heating throughout from an air source heat pump, quality kitchens with integral appliances and high-specification, tiled, wet room style shower rooms with freestanding baths together with fitted dressing room storage. Externally, the remaining prestigious property includes a large integral garage An ample gated driveway lies to the front of the property with an external stairway leading up to the terrace to the rear.
Gardens surround the property to all sides and landscaping and boundaries will be included, again with the design being flexible to the individual purchaser subject to negotiation and agreement.

The Setting Stonley Fields is an exciting offering to the market and appeals to local, regional and national buyers. Barnard Castle is a renowned Georgian market town which remains popular due to its wealth of local private businesses and facilities. The town boasts an excellent choice of schooling for children of all ages, a range of healthcare, sports and leisure facilities and a host of day to day shopping, professional services and appealing eateries, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Nestled amongst open countryside, the area draws tourism from those pursuing outdoor interests and country pursuits, yet the bright lights of the region's attractive major cities are still within easy reach. For those travelling to and from the town, the A66, a major trunk road travels east to west linking both the A1 (M) and the M6 so for those occasionally commuting by car the connections are easily accessed. The closest mainline train station can be found at Darlington and Durham Teesside Airport and Newcastle International Airports are accessed within 1 hour by car.
