This handsome Georgian farmhouse has been sympathetically renovated and extended to provide the perfect synthesis of period charm and modern living. The finish is to an exceptionally high standard. First impressions continue through the whole inspection.

Handcrafted stonework, timber chord-and-weight sash windows, limestone tiles and engineered oak flooring are incorporated throughout the generous living spaces; in addition, HDMI cabling, individual room thermostats, underfloor heating and an integral music system.

The light and spacious sitting room benefits from a feature fireplace crafted from antique stone and brick, while the centre piece of the ground floor is the luxurious handmade Shaker-style kitchen. Appliances include a fridge/freezer, built-in oven, wine fridge and a dishwasher, however, the focal point is undeniably the stunning Total Control Aga, set within a craftsman-built surround.

There are five bedrooms on the first floor, all of which have en suite facilities. All bathrooms boast Grohe fittings, Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware, feature tiling and accent lighting. The principal and second bedrooms both have dedicated dressing rooms - and the third bedroom, towards the front of the property, has access out on to a private balcony which forms the roof of the stone portico over the front door.

Wood burning stoves of your choice can be installed.

The Farmhouse occupies an enviable position boasting the greatest of all locational attributes - seclusion without isolation. It sits in an elevated spot and whilst the noise of the countryside can sometimes surprise urban folk it is an unspoilt and beautiful position. The location is delightfully rural and private, offering magnificent views across rolling farm land and the Coquet valley. While tucked away and secluded, the property is anything but remote, being conveniently close to both the A1 and A697 trunk roads and a host of amenities and schools.

A range of local conveniences can be found in the nearby villages of Longhorsley, Longframlington and Felton, all located approximately 3 miles away. There are locally renowned schools in all of these excellent and thriving villages. While a wider choice of shops and facilities are located in the popular market towns of Alnwick to the north and Morpeth to the south.

Professional standards prevent advertising distances in journey times although our clients would typically devote 35 minutes to travel to central Newcastle to keep an appointment or catch a train.

The Farmhouse is situated within about 1.3 acres of garden and approach. The property is enclosed by a combination of post and rail fencing, mature hedging, trees and a low stone wall. A farm-style gate gives access to the private gravelled drive which leads in an impressive fashion and approach to the front of the house and in turn, the parking area and detached double garage. A natural stone walkway surrounds the property and opens out to a large south facing sun terrace.

Planning consent (16/04431/FUL) exists for the creation of an additional outbuilding to be used as an ancillary home office.

There may be the opportunity to buy some additional land (about 6.5 acres) by seperate negotiations.
