Property Description

Full description


As you leave the centre of Morpeth along Newgate, you take a left turn onto Dogger Bank which takes you towards some of the delightful villages west of the county town in the stunning county of Northumberland. Proceeding along this meandering road, you pass the town’s rugby club and take a sharp left over a narrow “one way” bridge. Once over the bridge take a sharp left and proceed down a private road and take the first turning left which is the private tree lined drive leading to Springfield House. At this point you are only a few minutes from the centre of the town but once within the grounds of the property you could be in glorious open countryside. Therefore the location gives you the best of both worlds, the convenience of town centre amenities and tranquillity of the countryside. This impressive detached residence will appeal to those seeking a family home with private grounds, providing a safe haven for children to play, or indeed has appeal as a home for retirement with the principle accommodation on one level.

Proceeding up the private gravelled drive you come to a property that successfully deceives what it has to offer once you enjoy your internal inspection. From the front you think you are entering a two storey house but once inside you will find the vast majority of the accommodation is on the upper ground floor level accessed by a shallow staircase leading off the lower ground floor entrance hall. At the lower level you access off the hall a guest bedroom which is adjacent to a well-appointed shower room, and the integral double garage. Proceeding up the shallow staircase the accommodation on the upper ground floor has been designed in a way that the majority of the rooms enjoy views of the private grounds. There are two delightful reception rooms, an office and a fabulous dining/living kitchen which was only installed in March 2016 and includes a comprehensive range of matching floor and wall units, a number of Siemens appliances and direct access onto a Mediterranean style terrace. Leading off the kitchen is the rear hall and laundry. The bedroom accommodation provides a master suite, with en suite facilities including a dressing room, three further bedrooms and stunning house bathroom. The flexibility of the accommodation offers the opportunity of home working and the seclusion of the location offers a tranquil working environment.

Now to the outside which is a real haven, with the plot surrounded by mature trees and hedging, providing a high degree of privacy. If you are a keen gardener you will see untold possibilities to develop the grounds further. The gardens have a number of “rooms” which reveal swathes of lawn (including a five hole mini golf course), a varied range of mature fruit and ornamental trees, secluded terraces and adjacent to the gardens (but not visible from the gardens) the soon to be re-opened pedestrian walk way into the centre of Morpeth, which is 0.7 miles. The gardens which extend to 1.5 acres are designed for ease of maintenance with trees and shrubs, large areas of lawn and naturalised borders. There is no doubt if you are looking to enjoy the “Good Life” then Springfield House will allow you that pleasure.

Morpeth is an important and expanding town which not only supports a wide range of existing businesses, shops and leisure attractions but there are many new enterprises coming into this Northumberland town. The town is the municipal centre of the county and further boasts wonderful communications via road and rail to Edinburgh, Newcastle, Durham and beyond. You also enjoy convenient access to Newcastle International Airport. From Morpeth you are within easy reach of the county’s stunning coastline and National Park. Restaurants and bars abound to suit all tastes and the town also has a very active arts scene. There are a wide choice of high achieving primary and secondary schools in the locality in both the private and public sectors. For those with sporting interests then you have a rugby club which is just a few hundred yards from the property, access to a number of excellent golf courses in the area and if you have equine interests there are national hunt flat race courses at Musselburgh, Hexham and Newcastle.

In conclusion if you are the successful buyer of this modern contemporary home you will be coming to live in a property of wonderful proportions set in private mature grounds which also enjoys easy access to the abundance of amenities the centre of Morpeth has to offer. We are sure if you view this distinctive home then you will not be disappointed by the proportions of the property and the lifestyle opportunity the location has to offer.
