The Property
Morningside is a former Blacksmith's forge built circa. 1890, situated in a desirable Tyne Valley village. Redeveloped and extended several times since the 1970's, the property was used as a guest house for around 10 years. Since then it has reverted to use as a private residence, with an attached cottage which has been let out from time to time. The flexible living space and the configuration with the adjoining Annex makes the property suitable as dual generation living, one large integral property or to have the benefit of an additional income stream. The property stands in a good sized plot with parking and gardens to the rear and side.

An entrance porch with solid wood door leads through to the principal reception rooms and central staircase to the upper floor. The sitting room sits to the front elevation and offers dual aspect to the front and side and a generous inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel stove on a quarry tile hearth. There is recessed lighting to the chimney breast and a substantial wooden fire surround. The dining room, also to the front elevation is another room of generous proportions and offers a gas fire on a tiled hearth with a decoratively tiled fire surround. The snug is off the dining room, also with dual aspect; this could lend itself to a number of uses such as a study, TV room or children's play room.

To the rear of the property is the kitchen/breakfast room which is light and bright with an apex skylight. It benefits from a good range of high gloss wall and floor units, integrated double oven, ceramic hob and cooker hood. There is independent space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer and ample space for a table and chairs off the kitchen. The useful utility is off the breakfast area which in turn leads to the orangery sitting to the rear of the property, offering floor to ceiling windows and French doors giving access to the sun terrace.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, all of generous size with varying degrees of flexibility; these are served by the family bathroom comprising bath with shower over, wash-hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. A further shower room and separate WC are also located on this floor along with access to the loft space.

The Annex has an independent entrance to the front along with an integrated entrance from the main house. To the ground floor is an open plan sitting room with kitchen off, with a range of floor and wall units along with a useful walk-in storage cupboard. The staircase is galleried to the sitting room with Velux windows to the roof space, flooding the area with natural light. The bedroom benefits from sliding wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with bath, corner shower, wash-hand basin and WC. The sale will include all carpets, curtains, light fittings and fitted cupboards.

Morningside sits in a good sized plot with a block paved driveway and well maintained gardens to the side which are mainly laid to lawn with some raised planting beds. There is a summerhouse and greenhouse, whilst at the rear of the property a west facing sun terrace is perfectly placed to enjoy the evening sun.
