Property description

YOPA is proud to welcome onto the market this fabulous stone-built, 3 bedroom, period property complete with driveway parking leading down to a single garage. This charming family home has an added bonus of extra space to the front, which in the past was used as a shop, and whilst it requires some finishing touches it can provide additional accommodation perhaps as a further reception room, a granny annex, teenagers pad or even a holiday let depending on personal requirements. To the rear of this beautiful property is a lovely enclosed garden offering great space for enjoying the outdoors. It has UPVC windows, composite doors, oil central heating, mains drains, and all other usual mains connections and is an extremely versatile property offering impressive and potentially extended accommodation. The property has fast fibreoptic broadband and with the cabinet being only a few yards away on the street the property enjoys good fast WIFI connectivity. also, there is a fully installed and private EV charging point inside the garage for anyone wanting to run an EV or Hybrid vehicle from this property.

The attractive market town centre of Rothbury is located a short drive away within a mile of historic Cragside, 12 miles south west of Alnwick, 16 miles south-west of Alnmouth Station on the Edinburgh to Kings Cross mainline, 16 miles northwest of Morpeth and 31 miles north-northwest of Newcastle upon Tyne. Rothbury, at the heart of Northumberland, is a picturesque town surrounded by the Simonside Hills with excellent amenities including cafes, restaurants, pubs and a whole host of independent retailers.
Residents can enjoy rambling, hill walking, tennis, bowling, 5 a side football, fishing in the abundant rivers, golfing, climbing, cycling, horse riding, and mountain biking, or explore the vibrant wildlife amidst stunning scenery.

Entry is via the front door which leads into a lovely open hallway with stairs to the first floor and various doors leading off. The first main door takes you into a wonderful lounge which has a pretty bay window overlooking the superb rear garden. The space is well decorated with a warm and inviting country cottage feel and a stunning stone fireplace boasting an open fire enhances this vibe as well as offering warmth in the colder months. Adjacent to the fireplace is a built-in storage area and there is also a picture rail that adds further character to the space. 

Moving down the hallway, a door takes you into the dining room/garden room which boasts a tiled floor and French doors leading into the garden. There is access to a good size under the stairs cupboard as well as a further cupboard at the other end of the room and the views over the rear garden are particularly enchanting. An opening leads into a country cottage style kitchen with a delightful sloping ceiling. It boasts a range of wall and base units, an eye-level Zanussi double oven, a four-burner ceramic hob with an extractor fan above, plumbing and space for a washing machine, and space for a free-standing slimline dishwasher. In addition, there is further under bench space for two more appliances and a single bowl stainless steel sink. Cooks will be pleasantly surprised by the abundance of bench space on offer and splashback tiling in an attractive rust tone reaches from bench to ceiling height so extremely practical in this setting. The whole space is nice and light courtesy of windows to the side and rear and a wooden door leads out to the garden.

The additional space to the front of this unusual property is already equipped with mains electricity and water and has been stripped back giving its new owner the opportunity to finish to personal requirements. A door from the main house leads into this space which historically has been split into three sections with a bank of windows to the front, which have been replaced, along with a wooden door. The first section is fitted with a corner hand basin and splashback tiling with a further door taking you into the main section and another door going through into a storeroom to the rear. This gives scope to possibly leave the sections as they stand, perhaps convert into one, utilise as a further reception room, or branch out and convert into a holiday let bearing in mind that some conversions may require the relevant planning permissions.

Moving up to the first floor, an elegant staircase with pretty spindles and a beautiful handrail leads the way to a half landing enhanced with a charming stained glass window. The main landing follows on from this and offers access to the loft. 

The master bedroom is a good size double with two windows overlooking the fantastic rear garden as well as the open countryside beyond. There is also ample built-in storage as well as a built-in dresser. 

Bedroom two is another spacious double with two windows to the front. It also benefits from built-in storage namely wardrobes and a dressing table. Bedroom three is a further large double with two windows to the front and offers equally impressive storage with built-in wardrobes. 

The refitted family bathroom is another splendid space with its large double-ended white bath adorned with a stylish waterfall tap, separate shower cubicle, concealed cistern push button WC, bidet and pedestal wash hand basin. It is fully tiled around the bath and shower area with pretty wood paneling to the other walls. A built-in cupboard houses the hot water cylinder and there are windows to the side and rear for natural light.

Externally this impressive home offers a pleasant rear garden with a lawned area, lots of cottage style planting, an eye-catching red Acer, and lots of other mature trees and planting. Storage-wise there are two garden sheds as well as a greenhouse with further space to the side of the property.
