THE PROPERTY
Broomshiels Hall is a pretty Georgian grade II listed family home. It is situated amongst delightful gardens and mature woodland and must be one of
County Durham’s finest houses. The current owners have undertaken a significant and sensitive
refurbishment project throughout the house. There have been some imaginative and sympathetic projects completed in recent years to improve the accommodation, amenity and outdoor space.

The Garden House overlooking the lake is an excellent example of the attention to detail.

In the main house there is a welcoming and formal reception hall with a wood burner. Fitted bookcases and casement doors provide further fine features and an impressive carved oak staircase rises from the hall to a galleried landing. The drawing room has an elegantly carved stone fireplace and windows and a French door in the south and east elevations. The French door leads out into a “room” in the garden on the south elevation with a most attractive parterre and formal pond.

The sitting room has fine panelling, and a pretty corner cupboard and feature fireplace are the most striking features of this room.

The large kitchen is the heart of the house. A blue 4 oven Aga is situated within a fully fitted Newcastle
Furniture Company kitchen with various integrated appliances and an island unit, all beneath polished
granite work surfaces and has beautiful views of the gardens. The delightful dining room has a wood
burning stove set within a carved stone mantel and surround with fitted bookcases either side, georgian-style sash windows and a door lead to the pretty terrace garden. The boot room with Belfast sink is situated next to the back door, a gardener’s WC is
immediately outside. A passage runs along the back of the kitchen providing ease of access to an excellent laundry room with tiled floor and solid wood worktop and Belfast sink with space and plumbing for various appliances below. There is a cloakroom and WC at the end of this corridor. The extensive cellar provides space for the wine cellar with original bins and various further areas, all with lighting, stone-flagged or tiled floors, shelving and practical ceiling heights for use as storage space.

The first floor accommodation leads off a galleried landing. There are 4 extremely well proportioned double bedrooms and 4 recently installed luxurious bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms have ensuite facilities, the fourth is situated next to the family bathroom.

OUTSIDE
There is an attractive combination of formal landscaped gardens in the area immediately surrounding the house. Further from the house are more informal grounds in an area which includes an all-weather tennis court and a pretty lake. The lake
provides a focal point for an abundance of wildlife and can be enjoyed from the Garden House.

The Garden House lies within a formal kitchen garden and offers versatile accommodation suitable for a variety of uses from home office or gym to guest annex or Air B&B and comprises a sitting room with breakfast bar, bedroom and bathroom.
The kitchen garden has an aluminium framed greenhouse on brick base. There are espalier trees and ornamental plantings around the periphery. There is an enclosure for hens and a dog kennel. The outdoor space is served by useful outbuildings including a double garage with access to floored loft space and a general purpose shed and log store. Whilst the driveway is shared by two other dwellings, there are no public rights of way or access across the property
