LOCATION The property is located in in the village of Stannersburn in Northumberland. The Market Town of Hexham is located approximately 25 miles south east and the City of Newcastle upon Tyne is 40 miles to the south east. The bank of Kielder Water is only 1.2 miles to the west.  

DESCRIPTION The property comprises a three bedroom Northumbrian Farmhouse and steading with various traditional buildings and stores extending to 76.03 acres (30.77 Ha) in total.  

LOT 1- FIELD HOUSE AND 10.63 ACRES (4.30HA) Field House is a traditional stone built farmhouse. The property has recently undergone substantial external refurbishment and is rendered externally, with a walled front garden and gated path leading from the quiet village road to the front entrance porch. The porch leads to the lobby and into the spacious living room with laminate wood floors, a magnificent original inset fire place with sandstone surround together with a log burning stove.

The dining room can also be accessed from the front lobby and benefits from wood laminate floors and period features including part wood panelled walls.

The kitchen is located to the rear and includes fitted wall and floor units, space for an oven, washing machine and also houses the warmflow oil boiler which provides central heating and hot water.

To the first floor are two good sized double bedrooms with views to the front of the property and a further single bedroom. The bathroom, located to the rear of the property, includes a bath with shower over, toilet, wash hand basin and an airing cupboard with immersion heater.

Externally this Lot includes a range of traditional buildings and stores, some of which include more modern extensions. The traditional buildings could have potential for alternative uses such as holiday accommodation subject to any necessary consents. There is also a well maintained walled vegetable and flower garden to the west of the house.

Beyond the buildings are located two paddocks suitable for grazing or could be used to extend into the garden.

The remainder of the land is located across the road from the paddocks and provides useful additional grazing or accommodation land.  

LOT 2- 66.29 ACRES (26.83HA) OF PERMANENT PASTURE The land ranges from hill and white grass to rushy pastures and mowable grass. We understand that some fields have previously been ploughed for the purposes of reseeding.

The land is situated in 3 parcels, each of which has a natural water supply and road frontage. The land is generally well fenced and the boundaries are made up of both stone walls and fences.

This Lot also includes a stretch of river bank, including fishing rights on a well-regarded stretch of the North Tyne. There is a known pool located in this stretch of the river.  

TENURE The property is to be sold freehold with vacant possession on completion. 

SPORTING RIGHTS Sporting rights are included in the sale and these include single bank fishing on approximately 165 metres of the North Tyne.  

MINERALS These are believed to be reserved by a third party and therefore not included in the sale.
