A rare opportunity to own an exceptionally stunning barn conversion spanning over 6,700sq ft of living space. Burtree Barns is an incredible property occupying a generous 1.4 Acre (approx.) plot within the delightful countryside location of Burtree Lane, just outside of Darlington. This idyllic location delivers the best of both worlds, the seclusion and peaceful benefits of being nestled in amongst acres of surrounding farm land with beautiful views, whilst being only a few minutes drive to the A1 and the centre of Darlington.

A vast walled perimeter marks the front boundary with grand electric gates greeting guests at the main entrance, complimented with multiple outdoor lights and intercom system. Through the gates you are struck by the impressive scale of the plot with a large sweeping gravel driveway leading through landscaped lawns toward the main house. The outside space is vast with a gated orchard to the right leading up to a large landscaped lawn with a beautifully renovated Shepherds Hut, complete with full electrics, double bed, seating, stove, fitted kitchen and toilet. To the left the driveway splits off toward a generous 2000sq ft 5 door garage / barn, two of which are large windows housing a car showroom beyond complete with resin floor, whilst the other 3 doors play host to a garage workshop. This is a truly indulgent space for the car enthusiast to enjoy your passion, or an ideal space to convert into additional self-contained living accommodation. The main driveway and Shepherds Hut lawn lead up to the main barn, with a vast elevated front patio to the front elevation to enjoy the views and entertain guests during the summer months, with natural stone flooring, hot tub, outdoor dining and a gated walled perimeter.
