Property Description

Full description

Widehaugh House is situated on the northern boundary of the A695, which is known locally as the Corbridge Road running from Hexham into Corbridge.

The property was purchased by the current owner in 2001 and since that time has been extensively refurbished, renovated and improved. The old farmhouse included external steadings and barns which have now been successfully converted into beautiful living accommodation. The property dates back many hundreds of years and has a variety of styles, ceiling heights and features. The contemporary wings of the house contrast very well with period styling.

The property is surrounded by a very significant garden and total grounds that extend to around two acres, including a grass meadow, a maturing orchard, a kitchen garden and a children's garden area.

Widehaugh House has great style and character and the owners have very successfully used heritage paints to complement the old stonework and pitched slate roof.

The large courtyard and block paved terrace lies adjacent to a stone built triple garage and a productive greenhouse at the rear.

The reception hall leads on to the dining room and from the rear connects to the gardens, a utility & laundry room and a cloakroom/wc. The dining room is a great feature of the house and is part of the original old farmhouse. It has an inglenook fireplace and leads on to a sitting room, which also has a fireplace and enjoys window views over the gardens.

The study connects from the hall and links through to the old barn, which has been converted into a large drawing room and has three sets of folding doors leading out onto the terrace.

The kitchen is to the south and east of the property and is a light and airy room with glazed roof and doors onto the gardens. It is well equipped with wood cabinets, built-in appliances and a gas fired Aga. It leads on to its own walk-in pantry.

To the first floor of the house there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is substantial, with a dressing room and luxury en-suite bathroom. Two of the remaining bedrooms are set into the old barn and have exposed roofing timbers. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room. There is also a fifth double bedroom and a family bathroom/wc.

The property has gas radiator central heating, double glazing to the majority of the windows, private water supply and private drainage.

Widehaugh House is a charming property, close by to the market town of Hexham with its Abbey, well respected schools and excellent shopping. Corbridge is near by and has the best reputation within the Tyne Valley for outstanding public inns, restaurants and shopping facilities. The train service that links Corbridge and Hexham provides easy accessibility into Tyneside, as does the A69.

This is a lovely home with great style and character and enjoying fabulous views of the countryside.
