Hutton House in east Durham was formerly the rectory to the adjacent parish church and a family home dating back to 1824. Grade II listed, the historic building was created for the Reverend Thomas Slater, but has been outside the ownership of the church in private hands for some years. The handsome, brick-built property reflects the high standing of the parish priest in village life in the early 19th Century, a prominent home built for an important figure with high ceilings, large bay windows to the front and ecclesiastical gate-posts leading initially onto a lengthy, tree-lined tarmac driveway with estate fencing. From here, gates open to a gravel driveway leading to Hutton House itself. Today, its location next to the church but outside the village is ideal for lending privacy and seclusion, while its scale and versatility offer potential and several options for a large family home as well as business opportunities. With approximately 11 acres of land, it is ideal for an equestrian family, while a range of attractive outbuildings facing a rear courtyard could be developed as holiday lets with the necessary planning permission. The period charm and character of the Georgian property interior has been preserved over the years, beginning with the original oak floor and stained-glass features in the reception hallway, and Victorian Lincrusta to the hall, wide curving staircase and landing. Both the reception rooms with the bay windows looking out to the gardens have a period open grate fireplace and are presented in immaculate and elegant style.

There are four substantial reception rooms in total, complemented by a 40ft long dining kitchen fitted with country-style bespoke units and centre island, twin Belfast sinks, granite worktops and a range cooker.

There are five double bedrooms on the first floor, two at the front benefiting from bay windows replicating those below and views to two sides.

As well as the land, Hutton House has a large, established garden with a pond, gazebo and sun terrace. A parterre with steps leads onto the land at the house at the front, while to the side is another large area of sunny garden with a lawn and mature shrubs and trees.

Despite its proximity to the A19, which offers easy access to the region s main centres, Hutton Henry has a rural feel and is surrounded by farmland and countryside.
