Property Description

Full description


As a potential buyer of The Farm House, which has origins dating back to the late 18th century, you are becoming part of a small community on the outskirts of a village that lies just South of Newcastle City centre. One of seven properties enjoying a rural location yet within a short drive of the A1/Western Bypass which offers an easy commute to Newcastle and Durham. The property is coming to the market for the first time in nearly forty years.

The property provides a home of undoubted charm offering well-proportioned accommodation over three floors with excellent fittings. Offered with formal gardens principally to the rear, a small paddock beyond and substantial double garage. If you are looking for a property that could cater for a pony or horse then there is an additional paddock available by separate negotiation that fronts onto the narrow River Team.

You approach the property over a tree lined private road that currently serves the seven properties including The Farm House. Entering via an enclosed porch with windows on three sides, a stable door then leads to the focal point of the home, the fabulous L-shaped dining kitchen. The kitchen from the Schuller range, is fitted with a range of fabulous units which at base level includes cupboards and drawers with soft closers and beautiful worktops over. There are a number of wall mounted cupboards to match having lighting under. A central island unit which has a breakfast bar overhang provides further storage and includes an integrated six burner gas hob with a ceiling suspended extractor hood over and provides a division between the kitchen and dining area. Integrated appliances that form part of the sale include a combination microwave oven, fan oven, dishwasher and drinks fridge. The dining room has a full height brick fireplace, uncovered by the vendors during the course of the renovation works, and is fitted with a cast iron stove. A tiled floor runs through the kitchen and dining room and into the laundry/cloakroom. An inner lobby links the dining room and sitting room as well as having a staircase giving access to the first floor. The sitting room which can also be accessed from the kitchen enjoys a view over the garden and features a full height brick fireplace which in design mirrors the one in the dining room. The room leading directly off the kitchen has been divided to now form the laundry and cloakroom/wc. To complete the ground floor you have a garden room which has a single door opening onto the formal gardens.

At first floor level you have three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, one with "his and hers" walk in wardrobes, and are located to the rear of the house enjoying an open outlook over the gardens and farmland beyond. A smaller third bedroom which would make a great office has recessed storage cupboards. The first floor also accommodates a well-appointed bathroom with period style bath with roll edged top and a centrally positioned mixer tap. In addition there are 'his & hers' wash basins with vanity cabinets under, a wide walk in shower compartment and a wc with concealed cistern. Mosaic patterned wall tiling and tiled floor finish this room.

From the first floor landing a return staircase rises to the second floor and the master bedroom suite. The bedroom is a generous space with tall pitched sloping ceilings incorporating Velux style roof lights to the front and rear offering an open aspect. Leading off the bedroom there is a room that could be used as a dressing room/nursery with direct access to an en suite shower room with shower, wash basin and WC.

The gardens are principally to the rear and include an area of recently sown lawn that is enclosed by walling and fencing on the side boundaries. A short run of steps leads up to an area of paddock that could be planted with trees to form an orchard and there is ample space for the creation of a kitchen garden as well as offering the opportunity of keeping chickens and livestock. The lane that gives access to the garage also leads to an additional paddock that fronts onto the River Team but can be acquired by separate negotiation.

In conclusion this is a property that has stood the test of time and due to the careful improvements now shows a beautiful family home in a rural yet accessible location.

Please note the images displayed of the rear garden do not represent how it looks at this time and are to give an impression of how the gardens could look once the lawn is established.
