High Seat is superbly perched on the northern banks of the River Tyne overlooking the village of Heddon and the magnificent Tyne Valley to the south. The property occupies a total of circa 12 acres of impressive manicured gardens, grounds and grazing paddocks with beautiful open lawned areas. The house itself dates back to the early 1970s and occupies a site which was associated with the Military Road centuries ago and is close by to Hadrians Wall. The modern detached house is framed by older stone cottages which are also included in the sale giving a total of 3 properties as well as a range of outbuildings. The magnificent gardens and grounds include a fabulous tree lined entrance up to the open drive and courtyard, both at the front and rear of the house which enjoys fabulous views over the surrounding countryside and farmland.

Lovely large entrance reception hall | Cloakroom/wc at the rear | Formal drawing room with a superb fireplace and beautiful views to the south and west aspect | Dining room opening up to a second lounge and enjoying superb views also to the south | The kitchen/breakfast room is to the side of the house and leads on to a utility room | A former attached three bedroom cottage at the rear of the principal house has now been connected and offers a large lounge with a games room, billiard table and cocktail bar | Above there is a fourth bedroom to the house which is used as a hobbies room which has further access into the roof void for storage; there is also a shower room/wc | A very elegant staircase leads to the first floor where the master bedroom suite has its own living area and en-suite luxury bathroom with a separate shower and magnificent views | A private passageway leads on to two further double bedrooms, both with fabulous views and with access to the family bathroom. 

Separate from the house are two cottages, one known as Fox Cottage which has lovely views to the west overlooking the surrounding countryside.  The cottage is set out with an entrance hallway, lounge, breakfasting kitchen and dining room, conservatory and sun room. There is a private passageway connecting to four bedrooms and a bathroom.  There is also a utility room and the house has a lovely timber decked area to the exterior with westerly views.

Externally, the property is accessed via two driveways leading to a double garage and a carport. 

High Seat provides a magnificent opportunity to acquire a house which would easily accommodate 3 or 4 family generations or people who regularly entertain and have visitors.
