Full description

**ELEVATED POSITION – EXCELLENT VIEWS – FLEXIBLE ACCOMMODATION**

Situated on an elevated site and enjoying quiet and serene surroundings with extensive views across The Coquet Valley, this large detached home provides spacious and flexible accommodation.

The property is accessed along Hillside East then turning up a privately owned driveway to the large open site with excellent parking. There is a truly panoramic vista towards Cragside and across The Coquet Valley overlooking Rothbury town to the Simonside Hills.

Internally the property is extremely well presented with a south facing aspect and modern, airy feel. 

The entrance hall opens to a large modern open planned reception area with French doors opening to the front and fitted kitchen with oak cabinets and granite work surfaces to the rear. From the reception area there is access to a sitting room/dining room/bedroom and a shower room to the front of the house and a cinema room/gymnasium to the rear. 

From the inner hallway there is access to a study and utility room and through to a family/games room and a large double bedroom and shower room. 

In 2011 a sympathetic extension of the main house into an attached cottage took place with little disturbance. This provided the family/games room, large bedroom and shower room referred to above. The original front door access and hallway were retained and with minimal effort the cottage could be renovated to create an annexe for a dependent relative or holiday accommodation.  

On the first floor the galleried landing opens to the extensive lounge, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite, two further bedrooms, family bathroom and study/reading room.

Externally there are easily maintained landscaped stone terraced gardens with patio areas and established trees, shrubs and hedging.

Some of the best Northumbrian countryside surrounds Rothbury and many walking trails are nearby with several accessed directly from the house. Rothbury has day to day shopping facilities with supermarket and specialist retail outlets. There is a choice of public houses and restaurants, a cottage hospital, surgery and golf club. There is schooling to age 13, a swimming pool and leisure centre and tennis courts/ football area with all-weather surface.

The A697 road gives access to Morpeth and Newcastle.
