If you are looking for a new home close to the Shotley peninsula area, or just feeling a bit nosey, then look no further than our Property Of The Week features, which will be showcasing the most interesting homes for sale on our Chapman Sickels.

A period barn, converted to the highest standard, Ivy Tree Barn lays in a valley between Whatfield and Kersey, on the market with Chapman Stickels for £975,000.

Developed in the late 1980's, offers a welcoming entrance hall with full-height glazing overlooking a private courtyard to the rear (west) giving much natural light, with stairs rising to a mezzanine landing.

The versatile reception space extends to a magnificent central sitting room with twin aspect views over the gardens and a focal open fireplace.

To the north end of the barn is a well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted on two walls, with a separate utility room. In addition to two further well- proportioned reception rooms which overlook the enclosed courtyard, the remaining ground floor space comprises an integral double garage which gives access to the billiard/games room.

Served by two bathrooms, the first floor provides four double bedrooms which all provide delightful views over adjacent countryside.

The principal garden is to the front (east) which is approached over an extensive driveway with a retaining wall leading up to a large expanse of lawn, interspersed with mature silver birch trees.

Clearly defined by established field hedges, the garden is very well-maintained and private, which back onto open countryside.

To the west is an enclosed and sheltered courtyard providing good privacy from the neighbouring properties which is defined by a wall to the southern boundary. In all, the property covers some 0.6 acres.
