Full description

Attractive stone built cottage in a lovely rural location.


2 Sandyhouse Cottages lies in a beautiful rural location a mile outside the village of Milfield with its thriving local pub serving good food, café and a country store which sells everyday needs. Milfield village straddles the A697, the main route between Coldstream and Morpeth giving good access to the north and south. There is a mainline railway station at Berwick upon Tweed with regular services to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.

The market town of Wooler lies 6 miles to the south and offers a good range of shops including small supermarket, deli, newsagents, butcher, flower shop, hotels and restaurants, garage and doctors surgery.

North Northumberland and the Border counties offer a wide range of sport, culture, scenery and above all a friendly rural lifestyle. There are popular golf courses at Wooler (Doddington), Coldstream, Berwick and Bamburgh. In addition the magnificent east coast provides a mixture of glorious sandy beaches, Holy Island, historic castles and the world class bird sanctuaries at Budle Bay and the Farne Islands. The Cheviot Hills are a ten minute drive from the village with thousands of acres of tracks and trails and open space for a variety of outdoor activities.

Built of stone under a slate roof the property has been refurbished by the current owners to a high standard and now offers a comfortable, modern 3-bedroom cottage with some original features such as batten doors with Suffolk latches.

To the front of the house are views over open farmland and from the garden is a spectacular vista of North Northumberland countryside.

2 Sandyhouse would make a lovely family home or be the perfect holiday house. The accommodation is light and bright and includes a lovely sitting room with a log-burning stove set into a small Inglenook fireplace with sandstone hearth; a door from the sitting room leads to the breakfasting kitchen which was remodeled in 2008 and fitted with tasteful floor and wall units and display cupboards and housing integral white goods, electric oven and microwave and LPG gas hob. There is also a very useful walk-in pantry. A double glazed door leads to a patio area to the rear of the house.

A wide dog-leg staircase, with a window on the turn, leads to the first floor where there are three bedrooms. The master has an original decorative cast-iron fireplace and bedroom two has fitted wardrobes. Whilst slightly smaller bedroom three would be ideal as a children's room, office or sewing room. The fully tiled bathroom has been completely refurbished and has a large bath, separate shower, wash hand basin, WC and Karndean flooring.

To the front of the cottage is a small area bounded by hedging; to the side is an expansive garden mainly laid to lawn and bounded by a stone wall. This area could, with the necessary planning consents, be ideal for adding an extension to the property, a garage or for additional parking.

A paved patio area to the rear is a lovely suntrap to catch the morning sun. Adjoining the patio is a stone built outhouse which has been cleverly used for housing the Worcester condensing boiler and the hot and cold water tanks for the cottage. The oil tank is stored behind the outhouse.
