Take a look inside this renovated period manor house in Westgate, Weardale

This stone-built country manor house was built in 1864 and today sits within wrap-around, manicured gardens. It’s been completely renovated, extended and redecorated, with tasteful décor and furnishings to complement its period style.

A gravelled driveway, with a turning circle, sets the scene. As you enter through the stone arch into the entrance vestibule, you’ll notice original Victorian tiling to the floor leading to spacious rooms. The first of the principal reception rooms is the library, which houses original period bookshelves and a wood-burning stove. This room is also used as an informal breakfast and dining room and has double doors which lead to the orangery. Off the library is the more formal drawing room with double doors featuring stained glass windows, leading into the garden room which has flagstone flooring with underfloor heating and a contemporary wood burner.

A side hallway leads to a further reception room which is currently used as a downstairs bedroom with an ensuite shower room. This hallway also leads to the cellar, utility room and the kitchen. The kitchen offers a practical work space with a handy walk-in pantry as well as fitted cupboards, floor units and a central island with contemporary lighting and granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances add a modern touch – think an oil-fired Rayburn set within an inglenook and a Brittannia range-style cooker with gas hobs and electric ovens.

An elegant carved staircase takes you to the first floor where there are five spacious bedrooms, most with original features such as fireplaces, ceiling roses and picture rails. All are beautifully presented with opulent colour palettes to suit the period qualities. All the bedrooms are served by high quality and luxurious bathrooms with roll top baths, separate showers, wash hand basins, heated towel rails, WC and underfloor heating. Three of the bedrooms have individual ensuites, whilst the other two share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

Externally, there’s parking space for a significant number of vehicles, and well-manicured gardens surround the property. There are various areas to unwind including an ornate gazebo, a gravelled terrace off the orangery and an extensive sun terrace off the garden room, but it’s the tranquil views you’ll love the most.

While this property is currently being run as a successful bed and breakfast and restaurant, it’s being sold as a residential property – perfect for a spacious family home.
