This stone-built property is believed to be the last house to be constructed by Lord Allendale. It was originally intended as a home for the estate manager of the time and was designed in a manner which befitted his position. It boasts generously proportioned rooms with high ceilings and magnificent views from their windows, most of which are now fitted with Everest double glazing.

The front door opens into an entrance hall which is illuminated by a large south-facing window on the half landing.

The spacious sitting room has dual-aspect views looking to the garden which frame the impressive landscape beyond. It still has the original beams which add character, as does the impressive stone inglenook fireplace that creates an attractive focal point to the room.

Like the sitting room, the second reception room is equally spacious. It has a stone fireplace with a solid fuel fire.

The breakfasting kitchen has a wonderful farmhouse feel with its oil-fired Rayburn stove providing ambient heat and a warm welcome even throughout the coldest months of the year. An electric cooker and induction hob with a stainless steel purifier above provide a secondary cooking source and there's space for an under-counter fridge as well as a washing machine.

The kitchen is fitted with cream units beneath contrasting worktops. The arrangement provides plenty of room for both a preparation table and a dining table.

Adjoining the kitchen is the old dairy which has been converted into a utility room. This practical add-on has space for a number of appliances and plenty of storage.

The property has a downstairs bathroom and cold cellar which still has the original stone cool slab that would once have been used for meat and butter. There is also a small room which houses the electric meter.

There are four double bedrooms on the first floor. The two principal rooms stand at the front of the house and have the same generous portions as the main reception rooms. The two remaining rooms are slightly smaller but can still comfortably accommodate a double bed. All bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

The traditional stone barn is a substantial building with tremendous potential for development.

High Knockshield sits within a glorious unspoilt Site of Special Scientific Interest on the fringe of East Allenheads Moor. This idyllic rural location boasts unobstructed views as far as the eye can see to Catton and even to the Cheviot Hills.

Birdlife is at its peak in spring with a smothering of game and wading birds including black grouse, curlews, snipe and golden plover.

Nearby Allendale has been twice crowned Village of the Year for All England. Its name means 'Valley of the Shining Water' in old Celtic and this attractive stone-built village has a thriving community as well as a number of local amenities. These include a post office, village store, Co-op food store, an independent butchers, a bakery, a traditional pub, an art centre and a couple of gift shops. There is also a pre-first school and a middle school is located at Haydon Bridge.

Hexham which lies in the heart of the picturesque Tyne Valley lies just a few miles from Hadrian's Wall to the north east. This historic market town with its stunning medieval abbey backdrop and cobbled streets has a wealth of boutiques, high street shops and independent retailers. The town also offers award-winning restaurants, a theatre, cinema, leisure centre and golf course. Hexham station which is on the Tyne Valley line has regular services to Newcastle and Carlisle mainline stations.

Approach is from a quiet lane via a private track which winds its way across a paddock. There is a gravelled parking area to the front of the house and a detached oversized double garage with space for two vehicles.

The sheltered cottage-style front garden is enclosed by a traditional dry stone wall. This pleasant spot opens into a sheltered sitting area with a stone-built BBQ for enjoyment of time spent with family and friends.

An area of hard standing to the rear of the property creates a rear courtyard and gives access to the back door.

All boundaries are the responsibility of the owner. These consist of some dry stone walls (which are in a reasonable state of repair), as well as post-and-rail fencing.
