To the first floor, there are two large double bedrooms which enjoy superb views over the Castle ruins. Both benefit from en-suite facilities which comprise of low level WC, wash hand basin set upon a pedastal and shower cubicle with mains fed shower.
The two further bedrooms include one double and one single, as well as an additional WC/cloakroom with wash hand basin.
Returning to the rear hallway at ground floor level, steps lead down to the cellar which provides a useful storage space and could be developed to provide further living accommodation if desired, subject to obtaining the relevant consents.
The adjoining annexe, also accessed via the rear hallway of the main house, would be ideally suited to a dependent relative or as a holiday let. It has an open plan kitchen/living room which features a range of base and wall mounted storage units.

The Area Startforth is on the fringe of the ever popular town of Barnard Castle and comprises an interesting variety of houses and cottages. It is situated less than a mile from the town centre which is reached by a pleasant walk over the Tees, either via County Bridge or by the pedestrian Green Bridge. The village is also well serviced by local transport.
Startforth currently supports a Church and locally renowned nursery school. A broader range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found within the town centre itself. Barnard Castle is often referred to as the "Gateway to Teesdale" with many rural beauty spots close at hand. For the commuter, the A66, the A67 and the A1(M) provide links with the major commercial centres of the North East. Darlington Mainline Railway Station and Teesside International Airport offer further communications with the rest of the country.
