The Property

Low Shilford House is a handsome extended stone built detached property with charm, character and original features. The property is perfectly positioned for access to Riding Mill and the A69, sitting in approximately 4.4 acres of gardens and paddock within a rural setting.

The formal entrance is to the front of the house and opens to a reception hallway with stairs winding up to the first floor. A door opens to a bright drawing room with original shutters to windows at the front and rear and an impressive cast iron fireplace with marble surround. Across the hallway is a spacious farmhouse kitchen and dining room with quarry tiled flooring features an oil fired Aga, a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets with contrasting butcher block wooden worktops and matching central island. To the dining area is a stunning original Moffatt Bros cast iron coal and wood fired range cooker. A small stoop of stairs leads down to the rear sitting room with an open coal fire, dual aspects to enhance the views and a walk-in box bay window with French doors opening to the garden. Off the kitchen is a rear entrance lobby, cloakroom, wet shower room, boot room and laundry room. There is internal access to the double garage and workshop to the side which benefits from having a good sized room to its first floor level which could be used flexibly depending on the requirements of the buyer.

There are two staircases to the first floor, one of which is from the formal front entrance and splits toward the first floor landing taking in a double guest bedroom with Jack & Jill bathroom in one direction. To the left on the landing is a very generous double bedroom with aspects to the rear of the house and a further two double bedrooms along the front landing. The second staircase, which begins in the dining room on the ground floor, can be accessed from this landing and rises further, past the modern family bathroom with oval free standing bath and walk-in shower on the first floor landing. To the second floor there is an attic bedroom, with windows and skylights, served by a bathroom with mini bath, wash basin and WC, along with ample storage, walk-in loft access and cupboards.


A driveway is accessed via the main road and sweeps right into a rear courtyard with space for several vehicles. The property benefits from large formal south facing lawned gardens, a further private enclosed lawned garden with timber log stores, a vegetable garden, and apple orchard. A fresh water stream runs through the bottom of the garden and there is a bridge crossing it to a woodland hen enclosure and further on to the southernmost border of the land. There are three paddocks, each with water available for stock, extending in all to approximately 3 acres to the south and east of the property.
