Todds House is a deceptively spacious, semi-detached, well presented farmhouse located in North Stainmore, enjoying glorious views across the Eden Valley. The property is situated in a rural, yet not isolated position, in the Upper Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty.

North Stainmore has an active and thriving community that have regular monthly meet ups at the village hall which include art and craft activities, domino drives etc. The village is approx. 2 miles from Brough in Cumbria.

Brough has a primary school, village shop, outreach post office, a hotel, public house and thriving medical practice with in-house pharmacy. Lying just 5 miles from the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen which itself has a variety of amenities including supermarket, general shops, banks, hotels, public houses, restaurants, primary and secondary schools (school bus collection from end of lane) and various sporting facilities. It is close to the A66 with easy access to the A1 at Scotch Corner and the M6 at Tebay. The Lake District, Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales are all within an hour's drive.

Todds House is believed to date back to the late 1600's, extended in the 1850's and more recently knocked through to incorporate the adjoining barn.
The property has been extensively and lovingly renovated by the current owners, with beautiful country decor and charming character features throughout. New external doors and various new windows have been fitted, along with new internal pine doors throughout. The stone hearth in the lounge has been newly installed, and the chimney liner has been renewed. Works also consist of a new bespoke pine staircase, newly fitted carpets, and wall restorations to boast the charming features. The property also benefits from oil central heating and double-glazed windows.
B4RN internet has also been installed, ideal for those who work from home.

The ground floor offers generous living accommodation, comprising a lovely large dining kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn, sunroom, dining hall, and a cosy lounge with multi-fuel stove. Additionally, there is a spacious rear entrance hall, laundry room, large cloakroom and sperate shower room.

The first floor offers a superior Master bedroom with a dressing area and ensuite shower room. This room also offers a balcony arear, with external access. This room could be used as an independent annexe, as plumbing and electrics are already in place for a kitchenette. There are 3 further double bedrooms, ample storage cupboards and a large contemporary bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached via a council maintained lane, leading to a gated parking area. There is a timber built workshop/shed. The beautiful south facing gardens stretch around to the front with a lovely suntrap patio area, with doouble doors leading out from the sun room.

Viewing is essential at Todds House to appreciate the beautiful location and decor, and size of accommodation. It would make a perfect family home or is equally suited to holiday or active retirement living.
