DESCRIPTION Clove Lodge is a superb Grade II Listed detached house in a spectacular rural location at the head of Baldersdale in Teesdale.
It is remote yet accessible being the last house on a well maintained council lane, 5 miles from Cotherstone and 8 miles from the larger market town of Barnard Castle with its shops, restaurants & pubs as well as schools. It is at the mid way point of the Pennine Way, popular with walkers & holiday makers. The nearby reservoirs offer wonderful birdwatching opportunities and total tranquility.
The property is a range of dwellings offering diverse opportunities to create a thriving business. The current owners have sympathetically restored the property and run a B&B, holiday cottage & bunk barn in the main tourist season on a part time basis. These businesses could all be developed to provide a healthy income and attractive lifestyle.
The views are spectacular with open moorland to the east and reservoirs to the west. The whole area is part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The main house dates from the early 1800’s and offers light and spacious accommodation, in beautiful decorative order and retaining the character one would expect of the period. On the ground floor is a bespoke 30ft kitchen with Aga & integrated appliances and a separate dining room area. Leading off the kitchen and also accessed from the yard is a useful boot & utility room. There is a lovely sitting room with open fire, an attractive entrance hall & porch and a downstairs bathroom. On the back of the main house is a listed Medieval hall which has been renovated to provide a fully shelved library, a study and a superb vaulted drawing room on the first floor with beautiful views over the meadows to the reservoir.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and two en-suite shower rooms. All the bedrooms face South and offer spacious, light rooms.
There is an attached cottage, probably added in the Victorian period, which is currently provides holiday accommodation but could easily be integrated back into the main house. It has a good sized lounge with open fire, a little dining room, pretty kitchen diner with French doors to the patio as well as two double bedrooms, a bathroom and en suite shower room. This could be used as a self contained cottage bringing in some income or would make a fantastic granny annexe.
Across the courtyard is a stone built camping barn offering basic open plan living. There is a modern kitchenette, shower room and living room with wood burning stove. Upstairs there are two twin bedrooms and a double sleeping platform.
Outside, there are attractive gardens all around the house. In the courtyard to the side of the house are a range of stone built outbuildings with a byre, workshop and stable. These have planning permission for conversion to accommodation.
In the rear yard is a large modern farm building, a large garage with development potential and a stable building further down the track.
There is the opportunity to purchase 16.50 acres of good meadow land by separate negotiation. There is a possibility for equestrian use subject to relevant planning permission.
Clove Lodge is perfect for those looking for a rural family home with business potential or “early retirees” looking for a total lifestyle change.
