The Property
Hamsterley Mill is a popular and quiet, semi-rural village which offers easy access to local amenities and extremely accessible for commuting to Newcastle, Durham and Hexham. 2 High Mill Road, which was built in 1953, is a substantial detached stone cottage situated on a desirable cul-de-sac. The property has been completely refurbished and extended by the current owners to provide bright, spacious and flexible accommodation which blends the traditional exterior with a luxurious, contemporary interior with high-quality fixtures and fittings including Duravit sanitary ware with Grohe fittings, solid oak flooring and doors and an integrated sound system. The property has also been re-roofed in natural slate and a new drainage system installed.

Steps lead up to an arched open porch and a solid oak front door with glazed side panels opens into a welcoming hall which has a generous coat cupboard. Solid oak flooring continues from the hall through fully-glazed double doors into a dual-aspect sitting room with a feature fireplace fitted with multi-fuel stove on a glass hearth and windows which offer views of the front and side gardens and flood the room with natural light. A door from the sitting room leads into a dining area which offers a formal entertaining space and has ceramic tiled flooring and French doors to the side garden. The ceramic tiled flooring continues into the kitchen/breakfast room which has an extensive range of contemporary painted units and a large island unit with breakfast bar with a combination of Silestone and solid oak work surfaces. The dual aspect kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the cottage with views and access to the back garden, is fitted with a Belfast sink, Rangemaster range cooker with gas hob and two electric ovens, American-style fridge/freezer and integrated dishwasher. A half-glazed door leads from the kitchen into a utility room which is fitted with a single sink and drainer, is plumbed for a washing machine, vented for a tumble drier, houses the boiler and has a door to outside. A generous shower room with corner shower, wash hand basin and WC is accessed from the utility room.

The main bedroom accommodation is accessed from the hall, with the exception of the fourth bedroom which is located off the dining area. The master bedroom has views of the rear garden and benefits from an en-suite shower room with contemporary white suite with large shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC and attractive complimentary tiling. There are two further double bedrooms off the hall, one with views of the rear garden and the other with views to the front. These bedrooms are served by a well-fitted contemporary bathroom with double-ended bath with shower over, wash hand basin, WC and Porcelanosa tiling. The fourth double bedroom, currently used as a study, could easily benefit from an en-suite by changing the access to the shower room. A spacious loft, accessed via a pull down loft ladder in the hall, benefits from light and power and offers potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation if required subject to the necessary consents.

Externally
2 High Mill Road sits on a mature corner plot which amounts to around 0.25 acres, with a private garden with boundary hedging and further lawned areas beyond. A gravelled driveway, with ample parking for several cars, leads to an attached garage with electric roller door that benefits from power and light. Paved paths from the drive lead through the garden to the front door and continue round the cottage giving access to the back garden. There is further parking to the side of the property.

The beautifully-landscaped gardens include gravelled terraces accessed from the dining area and the kitchen which offer ample space for al fresco entertaining and are positioned to enjoy the sun at various times of the day. Paved and gravelled paths, with some border planting, lead around the garden which is mainly laid to lawn and has established boundary hedging offering privacy, together with mature shrubs and trees. A large shed (11' x 8') is located to the rear of the garden provides storage for garden equipment and furniture.

The Derwent Valley abounds with wildlife and is a breeding ground for red kite.
