There are two (2 bedroom) flats also available adjoining the property which are available by separate negotiations.

Newminster Abbey House is believed to have been built in 1902 by the then Mayor of Newcastle, George Renwick. The ground floor accommodation has some superb reception rooms arranged off a striking entrance hall with a galleried landing above. The proportions of the drawing room are most generous. The dining room retains the original wood panelling up to "Delft rack height" and has a magnificent handmade fireplace with carved pillars depicting the monastic history of the site with the panelling above depicting the Newminster seal.

Of noteworthy comment is the parquet floor which runs through from the entrance hall into the dining room. The modern kitchen is a compelling attribute; so too are the light and airy first floor bedrooms, each with its own superb view.

The master bedroom faces south and west and has a luxurious en suite wet room. Close to the principal bedroom is a bedroom currently used as a dressing room. It is well equipped with wardrobes and storage cupboards.

Newminster Abbey House is a striking and historically significant Manor House located on the western fringe of Morpeth in a highly desirable and privileged wooded setting with an enviable sense of arrival and the convenience of an edge of market town location.

The ancient and pretty town of Morpeth offers many amenities including first rate schooling and high quality shopping. The thriving market town is able to boast the recently opened Sanderson Arcade with Marks & Spencer's, Waterstones, Hobbs, Laura Ashley and many other top name retailers. There are plenty of other interesting and individual High Street shops, a department store, restaurants and bars. A popular farmers' market is held once a month in the market square in front of the medieval Clock Tower.

Morpeth offers easy access to the commercial centres of the north-east including Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Teesside.

The town is linked to Newcastle by railway with intercity rail services giving direct links to Edinburgh and London Kings Cross.

There are regular national and international flights from Newcastle International Airport, approximately 11.5 miles away.

The property has ownership and control of the private driveway which leads to the house from the bridge close to Scotch Gill Woods. An established maintenance agreement is in place and can be shown to interested parties.

The immediate surroundings of the house are enclosable given the existence of a pair of smart wrought iron gates set within handsome mellow red brick gate piers. Convenient to the property is the detached triple garage, constructed by the vendors in about 2007. This mellow red brick structure was carefully built, with planning permission and building regulations consent and includes a studio or potential office or further flat at first floor level.

The gardens at Newminster Abbey House are a key element to the property. They are arranged to the south of the house and abut the southern elevation starting with a beautiful paved patio area which acts as a sun trap and has an attractive pergola.

To the west of the house is an area of woodland which provides the most fantastic playground for young children and is a haven for wildlife.
