East Bothy is a truly special and totally unique home in the sought after village of Brancepeth that is packed with period character combined with contemporary features. Far more spacious than at first appears, it offers generous, open plan living accommodation, three bedrooms and even a sauna all within a versatile interior that can be adapted to suit individual needs. Sympathetically restored and refurbished, the property is beautifully presented and finished to a very high standard so it can be moved straight into and enjoyed. Set over two floors, it is accessed from stone steps at the first floor, opening into a pleasant reception hallway. This leads into fabulous, dual aspect living room, with beamed ceiling and cosy multi-fuel stove. A door leads outside to a contemporary spiral staircase down to a private, enclosed courtyard garden, an oasis of green and a lovely space in which to relax all year round. The living room continues through to a superb dining area with wood effect flooring, The kitchen is fitted with country-style timber units with granite worktops, a Rangemaster range cooker set in an inglenook. A utility room with WC completes this level. From the other side of the hallway, steps lead down to a bedroom, with beams and downlighters, which could easily be used instead as a generous home office or additional family room. The main staircase leads down from the hall to the lower ground floor where there are two light and spacious bedrooms, Stunning 'L' Shaped family Bathroom with high quality five piece suite comprising free standing bath with shower attachments, separate shower enclosure, hand wash basin, WC, and sauna cabin.

The walled courtyard is a suntrap with climbing greenery, planted raised borders and low maintenance stone paving. Stone steps lead to a gate giving alternative access to the outdoor space. There is a parking area to the front of the property, which also benefits from a large garage. The honey-coloured stone house is in a conservation area next to the village golf course and historic clubhouse. Reached via a tree-lined driveway that also serves the golf club, the property enjoys a rural setting without being isolated and with the benefit of the schools, shopping, leisure and cultural attractions of Durham City only five miles away.
