County Durham Living At Its Best

Galbraith is launching the sale of Broomshiels Hall, a sumptuous property with delightful gardens and mature woodland, forming the major part of a Georgian grade-II listed country house near Satley in County Durham.

The property combines substantial and beautifully refurbished accommodation in the main house as well as a self-contained one-bedroom garden house, landscaped gardens, tennis court and lake. 

Broomshiels Hall is situated at the end of a long drive lined with mature beech trees in a plot extending to about 6.1 acres, offering great privacy and a tranquil rural setting. 

Sam Gibson, who is handling the sale of the property said:

This is a superb family home with the added advantage of the separate Garden House, which is ideal for multi-generational living and could be let as a premium holiday cottage.

The current owners have undertaken a significant and sensitive refurbishment project throughout. There have been some clever and sympathetic updates completed in recent years to improve the accommodation, amenity and outdoor space. The setting is also wonderful.

The accommodation includes a welcoming reception hall with wood burner and fitted bookcases; drawing room with an elegantly carved stone fireplace with stone hearth and French doors leading to an attractive terrace with a parterre, and small pond.

The other reception rooms include a sitting room with a fine feature fireplace and a delightful dining room leading to the pretty courtyard garden.

The luxurious kitchen, with beautiful views of the garden, is the heart of the house. The fully fitted Newcastle Furniture Company kitchen has various integrated appliances and an island unit, polished granite work surfaces and a 4-oven Aga. 

The extensive cellar provides space for a gun room, wine cellar with original bins and various further compartments, all with lighting and practical ceiling heights for use as storage space.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and four recently installed luxurious bathroom facilities.  All bar one of the bedrooms have dedicated bathrooms. The fourth bedroom has sole use of its own bathroom but the entry is from the landing.

Outside there is an appealing combination of wonderful formal landscaped gardens in the area immediately surrounding the house. Further from the house the grounds include a lawn, an all-weather tennis court and a pretty lake.  

Garden House, overlooking the lake, provides a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. This versatile accommodation is suitable for a variety of uses from home office to a guest annexe or as a holiday let. 

The pretty village of Satley is about 1.5 miles from Broomshiels Hall and the popular village of Lanchester is about six miles distant. The cathedral city of Durham (about 14 miles) offers a wider range of facilities including the acclaimed schools and university.

Broomshiels Hall is for sale through Galbraith at a guide price of £1,100,000.
