The Property
Fir Tree Farm offers a rare opportunity to secure a lifestyle and business property in a highly desirable location. This impressive compact estate encompasses a substantial detached bungalow with a luxurious leisure suite including a swimming pool and gymnasium, a detached modern office suite, extensive garaging and guest annexe accommodation.

The property sits in around 14.4 acres in all, including formal gardens, a paddock of around 8.4 acres and woodland of around 4.4 acres. In addition, planning permission has previously been granted for the construction of a stable block with six stables, tack room and store (Durham County Council planning ref. DM/16/01065/FPA). Although this planning has lapsed, interested parties may wish to explore reapplying for planning; the stables and paddock would combine to create a wonderful equestrian setup.

Fir Tree Farm Bungalow
The bungalow has been updated and upgraded over time by the current owners and today offers well-presented accommodation with the huge benefit of single storey access throughout. The expansive sitting room is filled with natural light from the triple aspect and overlooks the paddock and sweeping countryside to the south. The dining room has external access through patio doors and a lovely brick archway provides an open flow to the country style kitchen. The kitchen is further served by a useful utility room. A central hallway runs through the bungalow with all the bedroom accommodation off. The superb principal bedroom has an abundance of fitted storage and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, all of which benefit from their own en-suite facilities.

A pleasant sunroom leads onwards to the fantastic leisure suite. The gymnasium connects via full height glazed sliding doors to the gorgeous, heated swimming pool which measures 12m x 6m, with a maximum depth of 2.4m. The saline pool has a glass filtration system and is heated by two air to water heat pumps, using the natural warmth of the air to generate the comfortable temperatures for the water and pool hall. The leisure suite has a shower room tucked in the corner of the gymnasium.

Office Suite
The office suite is a detached two storey building positioned to the west of the bungalow. Constructed in 2012, this modern building has been designed to complement the appearance of the bungalow. The ground floor has a large main office with dual aspect and two further office rooms to one side, with a generous meeting room at the other end. There is also a well-equipped kitchen, a shower room and a separate WC serving the offices. On the first floor there are another two large office rooms and a comms/data room. The elevated position gives the first floor offices wonderful panoramic views.

Garaging & Guest Annexe Accommodation
Adjoining the office suite is the four-car garage with vast space accessed via two double roller doors. There is ample additional parking for numerous vehicles, and more than enough to accommodate both the office suite and the bungalow.

Positioned above the garaging is the guest annexe comprising a light and airy bedroom, a fully stocked kitchen and a bathroom. This is perfect for use in conjunction with the office suite.
