Full description

Sandyford Farm near Belsay in Northumberland represents an outstanding opportunity to acquire two existing houses and a range of stone barns and outbuildings.

The farm lies in a privileged and much sought after area of mid Northumberland, close by to Bolam Lake and just north of the attractive village of Belsay, with its award winning First School, as well as its local shop and beautiful village amenities. The area is known for its outstanding beauty, including the fabulous walks at Bolam Lake and the historic Belsay Castle.

The steading itself is believed to date back to the 18th century and is constructed in stone under a Lakeland stone slate roof. The C shaped courtyard incorporates a two storey farmhouse on its south western elevation, with the benefit of a single storey offshoot.

To the opposite side of the courtyard on the south eastern elevation is a further two storey, two bedroom cottage. Both of the buildings have recently been refurbished, providing good quality accommodation. The farmhouse has two reception rooms and the cottage has one. The farmhouse has the potential to be a much larger property, as the roof space above the kitchen could be converted to provide further bedroom accommodation.

The range of barns and outbuildings surrounding the two properties are single and double storey in height and the whole floor area extends to well in excess of 8,000 sq ft of both habitable and current agricultural use.

Planning permission has been passed for the conversion of these buildings into residential accommodation and the opportunity to create two luxury country homes.
Unit 1 enjoys the quality of the original farmhouse, extending to 1536 sq.ft over two floors and then a single and double height barn extending to approximately 2500 sq.ft to the north and north east. The grounds will extend to 1.131 acres and include a super aspect to the south and the east.

Unit 2 has a site of 0.621 acres and will include the original cottage on the south west corner, extending to 1850 sq.ft over two floors. A single storey barn to the north of 890 sq.ft and a double storey barn to the north west, extending to 1360 sq.ft. the grunds surrounding could be landscaped to give good privacy and a super view over the surrounding countryside, especially to the west.

The access to Sandyford Farm from Bolam Lake is through two grazing fields with cattle grids and connects into the steading itself, where there are three residential dwellings in total.

Both properties have recently been refurbished. They have been re-wired, re-plumbed, carpeted and decorated with modern bathrooms and kitchens installed together with oil storage tanks.

Both properties are currently let out on short term tenancy agreements and details of the tenancy and rental incomes are available on file. Vacant possession of these properties will be available.
