5 bedroom detached house for sale
The property has been occupied by the current owners since 2001 and has been the subject of renovation and extensive and sympathetic refurbishment since that date. The original farmhouse included external steading and barns which have now been successfully converted into spacious living accommodation. The original property dates back many hundreds of years and has a variety of styles, ceiling heights and features in keeping with that era. The contemporary wings of the house offer a good contrast to the period styling.
The property is set within extensive and mature gardens which lead onto grazing paddock/meadow offering in total approximately two acres, which include a grass meadown/paddock, maturing orchard, kitchen garden and children’s garden area.
Widehaugh House has great style and character and the owners have used Heritage paints in keeping with the property to complement the old stone work and pitched slate roof.

The main guest bedroom has en-suite facilities and two of the other bedrooms are part of the old barn and have exposed roof timbers. There is also a fifth double bedroom and a family bathroom/WC.
Widehaugh House is a character property close to the market town of Hexham with its Abbey, well respected schools and excellent shopping. Corbridge lies nearby and has the best reputation within the Tyne Valley with outstanding publics inns, restaurants and shopping facilities. The train service that links Corbridge and Hexham provides easy accessibility into Tyneside as does the A69.
