Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Dairy at Longhirst Hall is a beautiful stone built, detached country residence, occupying a magnificent garden site.

This luxury house was purchased by the current owner circa 1990 and enjoys a great location on the western edge of the village of Longhirst, overlooking adjacent countryside and the nearby golf course.

Longhirst Hall dates back to the early nineteenth century. In more recent years the hall has been utilised as a high quality conference and educational establishment, as well as a hotel. It is in the process of being redeveloped at this current time and adjacent student housing has been converted into private houses and creates a small village of quality homes.

Longhirst itself is a highly respected and well sought after country village within Northumberland. It enjoys easy access into Morpeth and the A1 linking into Newcastle. The village also benefits from its own golf course and cricket pitch.

The Dairy has seen significant refurbishment and improvement works carried out over recent years to an extremely high standard.

The property has a lovely entrance reception hall which links through to the drawing room at the front and side of the property, with beautiful fireplace and multi-fuel burning stove. The hall is open through a double archway to the dining room, also at the front and side of the property. The family snug and sitting room is to the side of the property.

One of the most outstanding features of the house is the kitchen/breakfasting room which was recently refitted by Herrington Gate. It has a contrasting range of handmade base, wall and drawer cabinets, with wood and stainless steel worktops. Appliances include a La Cornue cooking range and state of the art Sub Zero refrigeration. The kitchen opens in turn to the conservatory and garden room, a later addition to the house and with a beautiful aspect to the west.

The ground floor also has a rear entrance hall which links onto a cloakroom and utility and the kitchen has a large walk-in larder.

To the first floor of the house the master bedroom suite has its own dressing room and en-suite shower room. There are a three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house has a large roof void which shows obvious potential for further conversion works to create more bedrooms if required.

The property has the benefit of gas radiator central heating, double glazing and a comprehensive sound system.

The gardens and grounds are delightful and include tall mature trees and open lawned areas. They include a large polytunnel which protects the flowers and provides an opportunity to grow vegetables.

To the rear of the house there is a comprehensive arrangement of timber constructed stables and loose boxes, which show potential for a variety of uses.

A highly desirable home in a privileged area. Viewing is strongly recommended.
The property has mains gas, electric and water services.
