Full description


The Old Joinery is a stunning modern, self built home nestling on the edge of the sought after village of Humshaugh within the fabulous Tyne Valley. Set at the end of a village lane the property adjoins rolling fields, enjoys amazing views and probably occupying the best position in Humshaugh.

This outstanding country residence is built on the site that was occupied by the village joiner shop for many years. It was built with a vision to design a home that was not just an incredible place to live but incorporated many features that demonstrate a passion for the environment including solar water heating, solar panels (please contact branch for further information) and the heat recovery system which allows for an ambient temperature. In consideration of the many period properties in the area, the design incorporates both traditional and contemporary architectural features, with the use of wide timber frame double glazed windows to allow natural light. Stone and slate have been used in the construction of the house to ensure it blends perfectly with its surroundings along with the use of drystone walling to the front boundary wall.

The flow of the accommodation lends itself well to family living or indeed The Old Joinery would make a great move for retirement. The property is entered via a large entrance vestibule which then opens to a spacious reception hall connecting to all of the ground floor rooms.

An open archway allows this space to flow into the sitting area which is glazed on three sides bringing the gardens into the house. The family room was created by the current owners by adding a partition wall, this space offers the versatility to provide a home office, playroom or additional bedroom if required. Further to which there is a utility room, with Belfast style sink, a boot room with enclosed shoe storage and no modern home would be complete without a downstairs cloakroom/wc.
