Full description



Eglingham is a pretty village in Northumberland situated about 7 miles north-west of Alnwick and just 10 miles from Wooler.

It lies in the sheltered valley of the Eglingham Burn, in a rural conservation area, set amongst rolling countryside within 5 miles of the Cheviot Hills. The village is surrounded by mainly arable farmland, moorland and woodland, including an arboretum and some commercial forestry.

Famous locally for its excellent pub, The Tankerville Arms, Eglingham is an ideal location for those who enjoy a rural lifestyle whilst living in close proximity to the wide range of shopping and amenities offered by the market towns of Alnwick especially, and Wooler.

In addition to enjoying the Northumberland National Park and nearby Cheviot Hills, residents are also within a pleasant drive of the beautiful Heritage Coast of Northumberland with Holy Island, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnell and Alnmouth just 27 miles, 18 miles, 17 miles, 15 miles and 12 miles away respectively.

The main East Coast Railway station at Alnmouth also gives access to Edinburgh, Berwick, Newcastle and Kings Cross.

Property Details:

Sweeping up the side of this beautiful country cottage is a long block paved driveway, providing private parking space for multiple vehicles and access to the detached stone built Double Garage.

Entrance is into the spacious Porch with feature stone wall with open countryside views.

Stairs to the first floor are housed in the Hallway as well as entrance to the living spaces.

The second Reception Room is currently being used as a Snug and has a spectacular dual aspect with open views in both directions. A multi fuel stove provides extra heat and charm to the room. It sits on a slate heart with a cast iron back. The Snug has original exposed beams in the ceilings as well as exposed stone walls.

A part glazed door from the Hallway leads into the Farmhouse Style Kitchen/Diner. There are a good range of wall and base solid wood units as well as an integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a concealed washing machine. A large, charming LPG powered AGA sits within an original Inglenook with fabulous exposed stonework and mantle. Additional lighting is fitted under the wall units and there are glazed and open display units.

A door off the Kitchen leads down a couple of steps into the rear Hallway which has a tiled floor and the useful ground floor Shower Room/W.C can be reached from here.

The main Reception Room in this cottage has been thoughtfully converted by the present owners from a former barn attached to the property, into a fantastic Living/Dining space. The Dining area is raised with a solid mahogany floor and balustrade making it a stunning formal entertaining area.

The room has a bank of six windows, 3 to each side and an arched door with windows to the sides leading out to the rear of the property. Feature stone walls as well as original exposed beams and roof trusses bring extra character and a vaulted ceiling adds height and drama. A cosy, corner multi fuel fireplace brings additional warmth and charm to the room.

Stairs lead to the first floor from the Hallway. The landing has a Velux in the roof adding natural light to the area. Useful cupboards provide additional useful storage.

Down a couple of steps is the Master Bedroom. This room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed woodwork as well as two large windows providing views down the valley. One wall has a full stretch of practical built in wardrobes fitted.

Bedroom Two is a well proportioned double room and lies to the front of the cottage. This room benefits from built in storage as well as a fitted dressing table. A Velux window in the ceiling provides lots of natural light.

Bedroom Three is a dual aspect double room with views to the front and the side. The windows in this room are at a lower level, in traditional cottage style, and the roof is semi vaulted adding to the feeling of space. Loft access can be gained from this room.

A few steps lead up to the Family Bathroom which has another low level window looking out to the rear. A Velux window has thoughtfully been added above the bath allowing you to take advantage of the dark night skies in this location. There is half tiling to three walls and a storage cupboard. A white suite is fitted to this room and there is the additional benefit of a separate shower cubicle with bi fold door. There is a fitted electric shaver point with a light above it.

Externally, large, mature gardens surround the property. There are sections with vegetable patches, a greenhouse and a covered storage area at the rear. The Double garage at the end of the driveway has power and light.

This is, indeed, an attractive opportunity to purchase a true country cottage, ideal as a main residence or a second home in this stunning countryside location.

It is certainly worthy of an internal appointment to view and we would recommend that you do this at your earliest convenience.
