Full description

This stunning period barn conversion, with in excess of four acres of fields and various outbuildings, has become available in the historic village of Guyzance. The property would be great for equestrian or smallholders use. This small hamlet in Northumberland is located above the river Coquet and is roughly 6 miles south of the picturesque medieval market town of Alnwick.

With its twisting cobbled streets, boutique independent retailers and a fabulous range of restaurants and bars Alnwick is a vibrant and exciting town. It is home to Alnwick Castle, dubbed the Windsor of the north. Adjacent to this is the Duchess of Northumberland’s award winning Alnwick Garden and treehouse where you can stroll through the formal garden and dine among the treetops in the fairy-tale setting of one of the world’s largest treehouses. 

As we come through the oak front door of the property we are welcomed into a light, bright hallway with two generous walk-in cupboards, the first of which is a good-sized general storage space and the second is currently used as a boot room. The ground floor has wet underfloor heating throughout with wonderful Egyptian limestone tiled flooring which contributes to the feeling of quality seen throughout this beautiful home. Each room can be temperature controlled individually by wall-mounted room thermostats. 

From the hallway, we have access to the fabulous kitchen. The floor in this room is also tiled with Egyptian limestone and benefits from wet underfloor heating. There are plenty of cream high gloss floor and base units with granite work surfaces and pantry pull-outs. There is a large centre island unit with extra cupboard space and a large built-in wine cooler and AEG induction hob. There are extra sockets within the cupboards. This is a lovely cook’s kitchen and entertaining kitchen space with stunning views over the gardens. The kitchen also includes a large eye level self-cleaning NEFF oven and a built-in NEFF combination microwave oven with a warming drawer underneath. There is also a fully integrated fridge freezer with a self-defrost setting. The room benefits from LED ceiling spotlights and bench lights that run on a timer and sensor; if one enters the room at night the ambient bench light will light up automatically. A pair of French doors lead you out on to a lovely paved area ideal for alfresco dining with views over the attached four acres and surrounding rolling countryside.

 As you go back through the hallway and through an opening you find yourself entering the wonderful main reception room, with 6 windows, 3 that overlook the centre courtyard and 3 over the front of the property. The same fabulous Egyptian limestone tiles can be found in this room as well as Karndean hardwood effect flooring. There is a high vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams and trusses. The main feature of this room is the inglenook fireplace with a large multi fuel wood burner with a stone surround. This is a breath-taking room with lots of character. 

From here there are steps that lead down into another room currently used as a snug. This room has a semi-vaulted ceiling with Velux windows. It is a brilliant space and would also make an excellent home office or further bedroom. 

Also on the ground floor is a good-sized double bedroom with a lovely window seat set into the original sash window. This room is light and bright with oak doors and the same Egyptian limestone tiles with underfloor heating.

Next door is a large shower room which contains a concealed cistern toilet, a hand basin built into a granite worktop and a large shower cubicle with Grohe shower. This room also has an electric mirror that can play music, has colour changing LED lights and is also heated so it won’t steam up. 

The stairway that leads to the first floor has another vaulted ceiling with spotlights and Velux windows providing plenty of natural light. On this floor are two further bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom between the master bedroom and the landing. 

The large master bedroom is lovely and bright with a semi vaulted ceiling and fabulous views over the gardens and fields. A private dressing room can be accessed via an oak door. This area has lots of built-in wardrobes, eaves and loft storage. 

The Jack and Jill bathroom, which can be accessed from both the master bedroom and the landing, benefits from underfloor heating. It contains a concealed cistern toilet, a large shower unit with Grohe shower, a double-ended white bath with shower taps, another very large heated mirror and a wall-mounted television. This is a lovely well-designed quality bathroom.

Bedroom two is another great-sized double with a semi-vaulted ceiling and fabulous views from the Velux windows, and lots of eaves storage. All of the bedrooms have TV points.

The house and utility have been renovated from the ground up and now have insulated floors, walls and ceilings, all to well in excess of the current standards. Heating for the house is provided by an air source heat pump sited to the rear of the utility. There are ground-mounted solar panels which, apart from producing tariff, substantially offset the electrical bill. The property also incorporates a heat recovery ventilation system (HRVU) helping to further reduce heat loss through ventilation. All in all this is a property which is both economical to run and employs the latest renewable energy systems available. 

Externally there are various useful buildings including a heated stone built outdoor kitchen/utility room. This room has an insulated vinyl floor and a good number of kitchen units and plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and further under bench appliances, work surfaces and a sink. This is a super facility which provides flexible quality potential.

A large detached double garage with room above, with electrically operated garage doors, power and lighting. There is a ground-mounted solar panel array next to this garage. 

A large storage shed with power and lighting

A smaller lambing shed in the field

There is also a lovely walled garden with a greenhouse. This makes a wonderful place to sit as well as cultivate plants. In the extended garden is a raised area with a nature pond below, which also makes a lovely area to sit and while away the day. 

There are in excess of four acres of well-fenced fields attached to the property which the current owners use for their Shetland sheep, but these fields would make a lovely equestrian or small holding area with the property. The fields, subject to the relevant planning permissions, could be used for various uses such as camping or glamping pods. 

The grounds would be ideal for many outdoor pursuits and have been carefully maintained to provide quality pasture. The local riding routes in the area are also very good with lots of quiet country roads. The property is a short drive to the wonderful beaches at Alnmouth and Druridge Bay.
