Full description

Victorian country house with beautiful aspect in an easily accessible location with land and stabling. The Manse occupies an enviable location with outstanding views towards The Cheviots, south facing aspect and easy access to the main road. We are advised the house dates back to around 1875 and it is a fine example of a stone and slate Northumbrian house with generous accommodation.

The house sits back from the main road with a gated entrance to sweeping gravelled driveway with central flowerbed. The entrance is on the south facing aspect opening to a welcoming hall with oak flooring. The main sitting room is also south facing and has open fire set in marble surround, with the dining room leading off with west facing window. The study or morning room also has marble fireplace and oak flooring, opening off the hall. The fitted kitchen includes two oven aga with window seat adjacent, and this room gives access to the snug or family room with cast iron stove. The magnificent conservatory extends to over 28 feet in length and gives access bothato the rear garden and also to the stable yard.
On the first floor each of the four bedrooms are double, some with fitted wardrobes, and there are two four piece bathrooms, one with cast iron fireplace.

The property is mostly double glazed and has some secondary glazing, and enjoys liquid propane gas central heating from a boiler fitted in December 2012.

Externally there are formal gardens both to front and rear and kitchen garden area.

Planning Permission was granted on 5th August 2014 for conversion of the stone bothy to ancillary residential accommodation Reference No. 13/03715/FUL

There are four timber loose boxes plus tack room with easy access out to the paddocks area front and rear.

This is an extremely attractive family home with gardens and grounds ideally suited for equine purposes or as a small holding, and an early inspection is highly recommended.

The village has basic amenities including shop, petrol station and first school in nearby Branton, and the A697 road leads north to The Borders and south to Morpeth and Newcastle.

Alnwick and Morpeth provide shopping facilities and further schooling, whilst Newcastle city centre is approximately 36 miles away.
