The Property
West Moor Farm sits in open countryside just a short distance from the village of Longhorsley, the delights of Coquetdale and Northumberland's renowned Heritage coast. The property comprises a fabulous home, livery yard and around 40 acres of paddock land which includes a cross country course. The property offers a huge opportunity for those wishing to have their own business with ample possibility to expand the business.

West Moor Farm, which dates back to the 1800s when it was a modest cottage with a range of outbuildings, has been extensively renovated, modernised and extended by the current owners including a link building which houses a fabulous kitchen and extensive bespoke cabinetry from Newcastle Furniture Company. The property now offers spacious and flexible accommodation together with an equestrian business.

The front door opens from the courtyard into a bright hallway which leads into the spacious kitchen/breakfast room which has a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. The kitchen, which is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke units from Newcastle Furniture Company, including a large island, with granite work surfaces, Belfast sink, four-oven AGA, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, has attractive flagstone flooring and windows overlooking the garden together with Velux rooflights which flood the room with natural light. The breakfast area has a fitted bench seat, ample space for a table and a stable door leading out to the garden. Off the kitchen there is a formal dining room which has solid oak fitted dresser, corner cabinet and panelling, a window offering garden views. The spacious sitting room has a feature fireplace with stone mantle and brick pillars fitted with a log-burning stove above which a plasma screen television and audio system is concealed behind wood panelling with bookcases and cupboards to either side. A bright, hardwood conservatory, accessed from the sitting room, offers a further flexible reception area and enjoys views over the garden and surrounding countryside. Also off the sitting room there is a useful study, fitted with desk and bookshelves, which has windows overlooking the courtyard.

The bedroom accommodation for the house is located in two separate wings; one located from the sitting room and the other from the kitchen. The dual aspect master bedroom is fitted with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and cupboards and has views over surrounding countryside and the courtyard. There is a further double bedroom in this wing and both bedrooms benefit from use of the spacious, contemporary bathroom which has attractive travertine tiling, wet room shower area, double-ended bath, wash hand basin on a vanity unit, WC and benefits from under floor heating. Off the sitting room there is a further wing with two further double bedrooms both of which are fitted with a combination of wardrobes, dressing table and desk furniture. These bedrooms have use of a shower room fitted with large shower cubicle and wash hand basin on a vanity unit, with separate adjoining WC. A large utility room which is fitted with a Belfast sink, storage cupboard and work surfaces, is plumbed for a washing machine, has a door to a fabulous walk-in shelved pantry and a further door to the outside thereby offering useful independent access to this wing.
