This characterful property with its well-proportioned rooms and cottage-style interior was originally built in the 1930s. However, it has been extensively renovated by the current owners to provide all the comforts required for modern life. It is finished to a very high standard throughout with plenty of storage over both floors.

Entrance is into a small hallway which opens into the main sitting room. This light and spacious room with its dual-aspect views, feature fireplace and Clearview wood-burning stove, provides a comfortable environment in which to relax and entertain.

A second door leads into the generous and welcoming breakfasting kitchen, perfect for informal dining and socialising. It benefits from hardwearing Karndean flooring and is fitted with painted, solid-wood Shaker-style Everest units beneath Iroko wooden worktops. An electric range cooker and extractor hood sit beneath a feature mantle shelf creating a traditional farmhouse feel and there's space for an American-style fridge/freezer. Double doors afford views of the garden beyond.

The kitchen is located conveniently close to a large utility room which can house a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and a further freestanding fridge/freezer if required. A downstairs cloakroom stands adjacent to the utility room and there is both a back door which leads out to the parking area - and access to the integrated double garage.

The property also boasts a cosy second reception room which is fitted with a wood-burning stove. It is currently used as an extra sitting room, however, it could equally serve as a snug or formal dining room. This room opens off the kitchen and gives access into the hallway, creating a pleasing free-flowing layout.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, all with charming sloping-eaves ceilings and unspoilt views across open countryside. The large master bedroom looks east to make the most of the morning sun and has an en-suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are served by a modern family bathroom with underfloor heating. It is fitted with twin basins, a walk-in shower, a bath, chrome ladder radiators and boasts a large storage cupboard.

A useful workstation area which utilises the space outside the master bedroom, completes the first-floor accommodation.

Broadhope is situated in the peaceful rural hamlet of Swarland. The property is set back from the road and offers magnificent views in all directions. Recently opened in Swarland is "The Shepherd's Hut" village shop selling fresh fruit & veg, flowers and store cupboard items. It also has a popular coffee shop called "Nelson's" in the sports centre in Swarland which is run on a similar theme to the Running Fox in Felton.

There are footpaths and bridleways aplenty in the nearby block of Forestry Commission woodland.

Despite its quiet rural location, the property is conveniently close to the popular villages of Felton and Longframlington. Felton has an excellent first school, a village store, a post office, newsagent, some very good pubs and an artisan bakery. The river Coquet runs through the village and provides pleasant walking, as well as fishing - day tickets for which can be purchased from Felton Post Office.

Nearby Longframlington is home to a family butcher, newsagent, good pubs and an award-winning general store which sells a great selection of everyday produce.

A wider range of facilities can be found in the thriving market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth to the north and south respectively. These bustling hubs boast a good choice of shops and supermarkets, eateries, healthcare and leisure facilities, as well as excellent first, middle and high schools. Mainline train stations can be found at Alnmouth and Morpeth and these provide regular, direct Intercity rail services to Newcastle upon Tyne, London and Edinburgh.

The property's proximity to the A1 also puts Northumberland's Heritage Coast within a short drive and provides a straightforward commute to the city of Newcastle.

For those wishing to take advantage of the equestrian potential that this property affords, Alnwick Ford Equestrian Centre is located in nearby Longframlington. This state-of-the-art facility boasts a 60mx30m all-weather arena, a solarium and a cross-country course, which has been designed and built by 2008 Olympic course builder, David Evans.

To the front of the property a pedestrian gate opens into a delightful cottage garden. The space is laid mostly to lawn and enclosed by mature hedging. To the left, a five-bar gate gives access on to a gravel drive which leads to the integrated double garage and provides plenty of parking. A small side garden to the right of the property houses an external boiler and the oil tank.

The large rear garden has a well-manicured lawn which is enclosed by a post-and-rail fence. A sheltered, stone sun terrace stands adjacent to the house and creates the perfect sun trap from which to enjoy al fresco dining. Part of the space has also been fenced off to provide a vegetable garden with a greenhouse and timber shed.

The huge bonus with this property, is the land which accompanies it. This has been split into two paddocks that extend beyond the rear garden and are enclosed by secure fencing. A timber two-stable block is sited on hard standing and there's an automatic water feeder nearby.
