Property Description

Full description


Windyridge is a stunning detached property overlooking an Area of Outsanding Natural Beauty and provides sensational panoramic views of Northumberland's picturesque coastline towards Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle. The house is believed to have originally been built circa 1927, enjoying an idyllic situation on the edge of the village of Scremerston towards the sea and sitting on its own surrounded by farmland. The property occupies a generous plot with beautiful, established landscaped gardens.

This is the first time that this remarkable home has been available to the open market in over 30 years and in their current ownership our clients have substantially, yet sympathetically, extended, upgraded and modernised the property to a most impressive standard.

Scremerston lies equidistant between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh, approximately three miles to the south of the thriving town of Berwick with its excellent range of amenities and mainline railway station providing direct links to London and Edinburgh.

Windyridge commands a slightly elevated position, screened from the road by mature trees, approached via a long driveway that leads on to a generous parking area and to an attached double garage.

Internally the accommodation is superbly appointed throughout and the majority of the rooms are ideally positioned in order to take in the fabulous views. The formal entrance to the property is through an attractive hall with staircase to the first floor and doors leading to the reception rooms and dining kitchen. There is also a useful lobby that can be used as an entrance to the house as well as providing access to a cloakroom/wc, the kitchen and the garage. The lounge is a delightful, spacious room that enjoys a dual aspect and features a stone fireplace with multi fuel burning stove. A French door from the lounge provides access to the pleasant conservatory at the front of the property and there is also a separate formal dining room to the rear. The dining kitchen is exceptional and the room has been completely refurbished in recent years, fitted with a high quality range of units and a central island. There is an Aga and an excellent range of built in appliances including an electric oven and hob, integrated fridge and integrated dishwasher.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, all positioned to take in the breath-taking views. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a most impressive contemporary en suite bathroom, with under floor heating; there are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a single bedroom currently utilised as a study. On the top floor the spacious landing has an area with superb views that would be ideal as a study area. A door leads to the fifth bedroom, a charming room with exposed beams and again providing beautiful, elevated views.

The gardens are magnificent at Windyridge, predominately laid to lawn with a patio area, established plants, shrubs and mature trees. Highlights of the beautiful gardens include a pond, parterre and pergola. The summer house features a vaulted ceiling and is a superb addition to this beautiful home and its gardens, perfectly placed with two sets of French style doors framing the spectacular views. The summer house provides a relaxing place for reading or quiet contemplation as well as for entertaining during the summer months.
