The Property
Phoenix House is situated on the edge of the popular village of Hedley on the Hill within easy access of regional centres. The traditionally-styled, detached stone house was built in 2013 to a high specification with contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, under floor heating in the kitchen and integrated sound system. Phoenix House offers a lifestyle property with the opportunity to receive an income from the café and work from home. In addition there is already permission in place to run a Bed & Breakfast, providing a further potential income stream.

The front door opens into an entrance porch with windows to either side and tiled flooring, and a half-glazed door leads into a bright hallway that gives access to the principal reception rooms. To one side of the hall there is a generous sitting room which has a feature inglenook fireplace with log-burning stove, beamed ceiling and enjoys far-reaching northerly views. A glazed door from the sitting room leads to the garden room which offers versatile space and has windows overlooking the rear garden and glazed French doors out to the rear terrace. To the other side of the hall is a triple-aspect kitchen/dining room which offers a stunning everyday living space and also has a beamed ceiling. The kitchen area is fitted with a comprehensive range of contemporary units with granite work surfaces, Belfast sink, solid-fuel Rayburn set in a brick inglenook, two-oven AGA module with electric ovens and gas hob, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and ample space for a large dining table and chairs. Off the kitchen a rear hall gives access to a utility room which is fitted with a single sink and drainer, is plumbed for a washing machine, vented for a tumble dryer and has a door out to the rear garden. The second kitchen, which is used for the café business, is fully tiled and fitted with a good range of units, 1˝ bowl sink and drainer, separate preparation sink, has space for cooker, fridge and freezer, and has a window/serving hatch to the rear garden. Off the utility room there is a useful cloakroom fitted with a wash hand basin and WC.
