The Property
The Owlery is a traditional stone barn conversion situated in an elevated position close to the popular Tyne Valley village of Hedley on the Hill and offers fabulous far-reaching views over the Derwent Valley. The property offers generous and versatile accommodation, including a gin gan, which is in need of modernisation but offers potential to create a stunning home. The Owlery retains an abundance of period features including exposed beams and stonework and the original stone steps that give access to the first floor.

A glazed front porch with exposed stone wall, part of the original gin gan, leads to the kitchen/breakfast room. The dual-aspect kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of units, 2 bowl sink, gas hob and double oven, integrated fridge, is plumbed for a dishwasher and offers ample space for a table and chairs for everyday dining. Off the kitchen there is a utility room which has fitted units, sink and drainer, houses the boiler and has a door to the attached garage/workshop. The kitchen is partially open-plan to the dining room which provides a characterful formal entertaining space and has a built-in storage cupboard. The drawing room, formed from the original gin gan, is a spectacular reception room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, feature fireplace with exposed stone chimney breast fitted with a gas stove and three tall glazed windows, one with glazed door, offering glorious open views. Also on the ground floor is a study with beamed ceiling and bookshelves fitted to one wall, a rear hall with cloakroom off and a door to the rear parking area.

From the drawing room stone stairs with wrought iron balustrade lead up to the first floor landing. The master bedroom, which is fitted with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes, drawers and bedside tables, enjoys far-reaching southerly valley views and benefits from an en-suite fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, bidet and WC. There are three further bedrooms, two of which have mezzanines with Velux windows and access to extensive attic storage spaces. These bedrooms are served by a spacious bathroom fitted with a double-ended ball and claw foot bath, separate shower, wash hand basin, WC and fitted storage cupboard and drawers.

Externally there is a generous gravelled parking and turning area to the front of the house with a further gravelled parking area to the rear giving access to the back door.

The large attached garage/workshop has an up-and-over door, separate pedestrian door, benefits from power and light and has three windows offering valley views; there is potential to convert this area to additional accommodation if desired. The detached triple garage (7.40m x 4.40m), formed from an original barn, has three sets of double timber doors and provides excellent garaging or storage space.

There are paved terraces at the front of the house and beside the garage which offer areas to enjoy the views over open countryside and the tranquil setting. The garden which is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubbery has a combination of boundary stone walls and fencing. A greenhouse is located to the rear of the detached garage and there is a fenced area that has in the past been used as a vegetable garden.
