This handsome, brick-built property dates back to the late 1800s and is the epitome of a magnificent Morpeth town house arranged on three floors. Both the interior and exterior are well presented and the building still retains many period features. These include feature cornicing and central roses to its high ceilings, wainscot panelling, as well as timber sash windows and cast-iron fireplaces. By contrast, there is also a high specification remote access surveillance system.
Access to the property is via a tiled entrance porch. This opens into a spacious reception hall which gives a taste of the generous proportions the property has to offer.
The principal sitting room radiates a sense of grandeur, with its high ceiling fitted bookcases, feature fireplace, picture rails and turret alcove. This impressive room is packed with period charm and provides plenty of space for relaxing and grand scale entertaining.
The huge breakfasting kitchen is warm and welcoming with a practical tiled floor and a gas-fired Aga set into an inglenook fireplace. It is also fitted with painted units beneath solid-wood worktops and double Belfast sink. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher and there’s additional space for a freestanding fridge/freezer, as well as a large table for family and informal dining.
A utility room opens off the kitchen. This is fitted with purpose-built linen cupboards and has space for three washer/dryers. From here a door leads through into the garage.
Family snug, also with an attractive period fireplace and fitted bookcases, together with a home office and cloakroom, complete the downstairs living accommodation.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, including the master bedroom. This magnificent suite benefits from the same proportions as the main sitting room below, and as such it also boasts a charming turret window. It also has a bank of wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.
The three remaining double bedrooms are full of character, with Victorian cast-iron fireplaces, high ceilings and timber sash windows. These bedrooms are served by a family bathroom fitted with heritage-style sanitary ware and a charming roll-top bath.
On the second floor is a large and extremely versatile L-shaped space. It is currently used as a sitting room/hobby room and bedroom. However, it could easily lend itself to any number of uses, including a home cinema, games room, or den. Across the landing a smaller room is currently used for storage, although it has space and plumbing for a further en-suite bathroom or shower room.
Hillbrow Manor enjoys an impressive and elevated position in Morpeth. It is well positioned for the excellent range of amenities Morpeth has to offer including independent and high street shops, a number of supermarkets, pubs and restaurants, healthcare, leisure facilities, schools of regional acclaim and a mainline railway station with regular Intercity services to Newcastle, London King’s Cross and Edinburgh. Newcastle International Airport lies about 15 miles away and has flights to New York and Dubai as well as regular UK bound domestic flights.
The property’s location also ensures close proximity to all major routes, putting Northumberland's stunning coastline, National Parks and heritage sites within easy reach.
The driveway to Hillbrow Manor is covered with a hard wearing bonded resin. It leads up from the road and through electric security gates. The drive culminates in a parking and turning area.
The well-established front garden is enclosed by a low stone wall with wrought-iron railings atop. Mature planting screens the property from the road improving the privacy.
To the side of the property a five-bar gate leads through to the rear garden. The garden has been artfully divided into different zones, including a large block-paved courtyard adjacent to the house, a chicken enclosure and a dedicated vegetable-growing area.
The garden is arranged on three terraces, which descend to woodland beyond. The flagged terrace which runs along the rear of the property gives views out across the garden and from here stone steps lead down to each new level. These include a lower terrace, a sheltered lawned orchard and an area of woodland, complete with a log cabin which has an electricity supply and a wood burning stove.
