Entrance into this 18th century grade II listed former farmhouse is through a pleasant reception hall which gives access to the spacious drawing room with its multi-fuel stove and dining room with feature stone fireplace. The hall also has a useful workstation area under the stairs.

Beyond the dining room is a lovely sized lounge with an impressive inglenook fireplace, multi-fuel stove and pretty window seats. This comfortable room with its close proximity to the kitchen is ideally situated to make the perfect relaxing family room. From here a door leads to a second staircase which leads to the first floor. There is also a large storage cupboard.

The breakfasting kitchen is a very sociable space with a tiled floor, painted units beneath wooden worktops. Space also exists for a range style gas cooker, freestanding fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a large table.

A well-designed mezzanine, currently being used as an office overlooks the kitchen making excellent use of the full-height ceiling.

Beyond the kitchen is a good sized utility room with a Belfast sink and quarry-tiled floor, which has space for three appliances, including a washing machine. There is also a WC/cloakroom, a staircase which leads to the mezzanine and back door.

From the main reception hall a wide staircase leads up to the first floor. The three bedrooms on this level, including the spacious master with its cast iron fireplace, are south-facing and look out to the village green. These are served by a family bathroom with heritage-style sanitary ware, a bath, separate shower cubicle and airing cupboard.

On the second floor, there are two charming bedrooms with exposed ceiling trusses and heritage skylights. These are served by a shower room - and beyond the second bedroom is a large walk in storage space.

Lynn Law Farmhouse enjoys an elevated south facing position overlooking the green within the charming rural village of Whalton, with its village hall and gastro pub. An award-winning local shop and sub-post office can be found in nearby Belsay, while the popular market town of Morpeth is located just 7 miles to the east.

This thriving centre offers a first-class choice of supermarkets and independent shops, as well as healthcare and leisure facilities. There are also mainline rail links with regular services to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London King's Cross.
Newcastle International Airport lies about 10 miles away and there are regular flights to New York and Dubai.

The affluent town of Ponteland lies approximately 8.5 miles to the South. It too offers a wide range of amenities, including shops, pubs and restaurants, a health centre and a Waitrose supermarket.

Both Morpeth and in Ponteland offer a good choice of schools to which dedicated school buses run from Whalton.

A large and well-maintained south-facing garden stands to the front of the property. This is laid mostly to lawn, is enclosed and elevated from the village road.

To the rear are two gravelled courtyards, both of which provide space to relax and to enjoy al fresco dining. The courtyard which opens from the utility room has a useful outbuilding housing a WC, fuel store, garden storage and kennel.

From here a pedestrian gate leads out to a block-paved drive which provides shared access to the garages, two of which belong to the property.

In addition to the main residence and gardens, there is a paddock of about 5 acres located nearby. This is available by separate negotiation.
