This comfortable family home is beautifully presented, offering extensive accommodation with a high-degree of finish in every room. The property is enhanced by both traditional features and modern technology which help to provide the perfect environment for contemporary living. These include timber mock sash windows and French doors, engineered-oak flooring, natural-stone tiles and a Sonos music-surround system.

Entrance is through a stone portico which leads into a small lobby and opens into a welcoming reception hall. The two principal reception rooms open off the hall.

The elegant sitting room presents a flexible space in terms of furniture arrangement and use. It is fitted with a multi-fuel stove set into a reclaimed-brick chimney. Across the hall, is a generous dining room with a west-facing aspect to make the most of the evening sun.

The breakfasting kitchen offers an extremely sociable hub that's perfect for informal dining and entertaining. It is fitted with cream Shaker-style units, a large larder cupboard which provides plenty of food storage, and it boasts a two-oven, oil-fired Aga. Other appliances include an integrated Bosch dishwasher, a Bosch combi-oven, and there's space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. The adjoining utility room houses the boiler with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a dryer.

The current owners practically live in the magnificent garden room makes a beautifully light third reception room. A full-height vaulted ceiling with feature trusses adds a touch of theatre, while the abundance of windows flood the space with day-long natural light and give panoramic views of the garden.

One of the appealing features of this property is the scope for versatile family living that it provides. Beyond the kitchen, a fourth reception room is currently used as an office, however, it could equally convert to a cosy snug, TV room, or playroom or even a bedroom for a person requiring a ground floor bedroom. A sizeable fifth reception room (currently also an office), spanning the width of the house.

Upstairs, four sizeable double bedrooms open off a galleried landing. The master bedroom enjoys dual-aspect views and has an en-suite shower room, as well as a generous bank of fitted wardrobes.

The second bedroom has a luxury bathroom with porcelain tiles and an attractive tiled feature wall in the shower area. The room is also fully tanked to accommodate the low-profile shower tray.

The two remaining bedrooms on the first floor and the generous loft room are all served by a contemporary and newly refurbished family bathroom. The space boasts limestone tiles throughout, with a striking quartz-tiled wall illuminated by LED spot lights. Other fixtures include a ladder radiator and bespoke mirror.

All bathrooms are fitted with Villeroy and Boch, or Grohe sanitary ware. Where Hans Grohe fittings are used, they utilise the iBox concealed-installation system to enhance the contemporary feel.

While currently accommodating five bedrooms, the property has the potential to be a six-bedroom house. The third bedroom comprises of two rooms which have been amalgamated to create a teenager's den. If required, the space could easily be converted back to its original state with the addition of a simple stud-partition wall.

With any family home, storage can be an issue. Thankfully this property benefits from generous provision across all three floors. This includes space under the stairs, an airing cupboard on the landing, walk-in closets in two of the bedrooms and eaves-cupboards on the top floor.

The property is fully alarmed and has security lighting.

Wildwood is situated in the enviable location of Burgham Park, with its open parkland, championship golf course and leisure club. While located in the heart of the beautiful Northumberland countryside, the property is conveniently located for easy access to the A1 trunk road putting the county's picturesque Heritage Coastline within easy reach.

A detached double garage with an electric, roller-shutter door, epoxy-resin floor and roof storage stands to one side of the property. Mature shrubs and trees surround the entire plot creating a pleasing backdrop and giving a high degree of privacy.
