Property description

Tenure: Freehold

As you approach Riverside House you will not gain the true picture of what this spacious detached country home has to offer. Care has been taken in the design of the property to ensure that the main living space, which is located at first floor level, takes full advantage of the property’s elevated position and its stunning views over the River Coquet and rolling farmland beyond.

The current owners advise us that the property was built some 30 years ago. Constructed with striking stone elevations surmounted by a high pitched tiled roof and offered with fabulous gardens. Approached through wide double wrought iron gates, a driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles and in turn leads to an attached double garage with charging point for an electric vehicle. Additional “Green” credentials include solar roof panels that generate electricity for the property as well as an income from the grid (23/04/2017 – 21/04/2018 the current owners received a total income of £564.05).

The well proportioned accommodation will appeal to those looking for an individual family home in a most pleasing village setting. Sitting just east of the A1 between Morpeth and Alnwick, convenient for access to a good range of local amenities including the Northumberland Arms, the Running Fox tea room and bakery, post office and primary school. The A1 provides a commuter link to Alnwick, Morpeth and Newcastle. Highways England has recently announced a proposed upgrade of the A1 between Felton and Morpeth. Rail connections are available at Alnmouth and Morpeth stations which are both 11 miles from the property.

The entrance door is located to the side elevation and opens to reveal a spacious reception hall with imposing curved staircase rising to the first floor. Radiating off the hall is a modern well equipped kitchen incorporating striking worktops and a number of appliances to include a three oven range style cooker with hob and hotplate over, microwave, fridge, freezer, drinks fridge and dishwasher. A set of sliding doors lead out onto the terrace and gardens beyond. A pair of bi-fold doors provide a division between the kitchen and dining room. From the kitchen there is also access to the laundry, downstairs wc and garage. Two bedrooms, a study with a fitted desk and stylish four piece house bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

In order to maximise the stunning views to the rear, the lounge is situated at first floor level and features an Inglenook style fireplace fitted with a modern stove. A set of sliding doors open onto a timber decked balcony with wrought iron railings. The balcony offers amazing views taking in the River Coquet, the rolling countryside beyond and an upstream weir which has a salmon ladder. The master bedroom has the luxury of en suite facilities, is fitted with a range of wardrobes and enjoys a dual aspect with farmland views. A generous second bedroom with river views has an en suite washroom and fitted wardrobes.

Externally, a drive offers parking for a number of vehicles and gives access to the detached double garage. At both sides of the property there is gated access to the rear garden and there is a substantial timber outbuilding to one side. The gardens incorporate areas of lawn, flowerbeds, mature trees and a flagged terrace with a Mediterranean feel, being edged by a whitewashed wall. The gardens are wonderful for outside entertaining and provide a great place to relax and enjoy the stunning outlook.

From the village you are well placed for exploring the countryside of Northumberland, from the majestic Cheviot Hills to the breath taking white sandy beaches of the county’s beautiful coastline. The nearest major centres for shopping are Alnwick and Morpeth, both 11 miles by road.
