Property Description
An incredible opportunity to purchase this stunning six bedroomed imposing property set within a 1.7 acre plot (approx.). This unique property is perfectly positioned in Low Etherley, a semi-rural village in County Durham, three miles west of Bishop Auckland. The property is accessed via a private road leading to the driveway, just off the B6282 which runs through the village.

Etherley Lodge was built in circa 1820 as a home for Henry Stobart who, together with his family, owned several collieries in the local area and used his wealth to build a nearby hospital for injured soldiers.

At the time of construction, the Lodge included several cottages for the mine workers, a mining office, an icehouse (which remains today), as well as extensive water gardens.

The house was extensively extended in circa 1912 and again in circa 1986, when it was used as a nursing home.

Having been left unoccupied and derelict for 5 years, it was purchased in 2018 by its current owners, who have completed a full restoration of the property, returning it back to its original purpose as a family home.
