Stonelea House was designed to offer the convenience and comfort of modern living, yet with the practicality, style and elegance of the Georgian era. Not only does the exterior reflect architecture of this period, with natural stone walls and sliding sash windows, but also the room layout and proportions accurately mirror this popular style of architecture. This also extends to ceiling height, which has been increased to add an extra element of spaciousness and ambience. Stonelea is beautifully presented and has plainly been the subject of rolling maintenance and repair by the current owners.
Entrance is into a large and welcoming hallway from which the majority of the downstairs accommodation can be accessed. The exceptionally large drawing room, incorporates an attractive inset brick fireplace complete with log burning stove and stone surround. Glazed double doors give access to the garden. The dining room enjoys elegant proportions with a tall ceiling and has pleasant views of the garden and the riverside beyond. A further reception room is designated as a study on the floor plans, but it is of the size and proportions that it could be used for a variety of purposes.
The sizable kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of fitted wall and floor units. Spanning the full width of the house this spacious room includes glazed double doors leading to the rear garden. The utility room leads from the kitchen to the integral double garage and provides a further access point to the house, as well as a further range of fitted base and wall units. The garage has two electric operated doors, plenty of space for storage when cars are parked in side, a drop down ladder to loft storage and a gardener's/dog shower.
Upstairs, a large central landing gives access to all first floor rooms, which consist of 4 spacious double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from a stunning under floor heated en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also benefits from an attractive contemporary en-suite shower room. Both of these rooms offer excellent views. The family bathroom completes the accommodation.
The property is connected to mains water and electricity, with drainage to a private sewage treatment plant. Central heating and domestic hot water are provided by an oil fired boiler.
The freehold of the property is for sale with vacant possession upon completion.
A right of way exists over the access road in favour of the properties, this road being shared with one further property and the nearby village church.
Netherwitton provides an idyllic backdrop to this luxuriously appointed and substantial detached house. This popular village is characterised by the abundance of traditional period houses and cottages nestled alongside the River Font, which flows out of the man-made Fontburn Resevoir.
A network of local footpaths provide access to some of Northumberland's most appealing countryside and access by road is easily available to the Northumberland National Park and Northumberland's Heritage Coast to fully enjoy all the county has to offer.
The market town of Morpeth lies approximately 7½ miles to the east, offering an excellent range of shopping, first class schooling and leisure facilities. Newcastle commuting will be made even easier once the Morpeth bypass is completed.
It is plainly obvious how much care and attention has been lavished on the landscaped garden. The manicured lawns are edged with rich borders and carefully laid paths and patio areas capture the sun.
The property is accessed from a private driveway, which leads to a large parking and turning area to the front of the house, as well as the large double garage complete with electric doors.
There is a well-appointed detached outbuilding in the garden which provides extra living accommodation. There are two rooms in this pretty and peaceful building. There is a solid fuel burning stove in the center of the building which heats both rooms. It has a water supply piped to the building but it has not been connected, simply for management reasons. It would make an exceptional office, games room, studio or accommodation for a dependent.
