  • Bedrooms: 4
An impressive, spacious and characterful extended detached period family home with good-sized gardens, versatile and generously proportioned accommodation and an excellent location with access along a private lane off Durham Road at the edge of Consett and Blackhill.

Built in 1890, as a farmhouse (as the name suggests) Blackfyne Farm has been extended - incorporating and converting the adjoining single storey barns - modernised and improved throughout, particularly by the current owner who has lived in the house since 2006. With uPVC double glazing and gas combi. heating, the house comprises an entrance porch leading into a contemporary farmhouse-style fitted kitchen/dining room -with grey units, wooden worktops, double Belfast sink, a range-style cooker and a small utility room/pantry - the spacious ground floor master bedroom through to an en suite shower/wet room which also leads through to a further room that could be used as an additional bedroom, nursery, dressing room or home office; there is a generously sized living room with a wood-burning stove in the fireplace and a door through to another sitting room or family room, which has doors out to the patio and one of the lawned gardens; the central staircase leads up to the landing with three further double bedrooms and a bathroom that includes a traditional style free-standing bath. Externally, there is a spacious block-paved driveway that provides access to the large garage/workshop at the entrance to Blackfyne Farm, a lawned garden, attractive patio and a shed to one side with access around both ends of the house to the other sizeable lawned garden with another patio area.

There has also previously been planning permission granted, in 2017 (now lapsed), for a further garden room extension.

Blackfyne Farm is tucked away off Durham Road - just behind no.162 Durham Road and next to Clarence Gardens - and has a right of access along the private lane owned by the neighbours at The Stables. It is just along and across the road from Consett Golf Club and is handy for local shops and facilities in Blackhill - half a mile down the bank - and for the wider range of amenities in Consett, including the leisure centre, supermarkets and Consett Academy Secondary School. Shotley Bridge is 1.5 miles down the road with Northumberland accessible just over the River Derwent and along the A68, while the regional centres of Durham and Newcastle are both approximately 15 miles away. There are many popular countryside walks and cycling tracks in the area, including the Derwent Walk and Coast-to-Coast route, which both pass through Blackhill.
