Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This period property with its Georgian-style sash windows, high ceilings and traditional details, provides an impressive and characterful family home, with the benefit of planning permission for a 5-bedroom house to be erected on the site of the stable block and yard.

To the front elevation of the house, a stone portico makes a grand statement entrance. Inside, the spacious hall ensures an excellent sense of arrival and allows access to the main reception rooms. The drawing room is elegant and beautifully proportioned with dentil cornicing to the ceiling and an exquisite marble fireplace creating a clear focal point. A more intimate sitting room is located to the rear of the property and offers a cosy retreat with its stone fireplace and solid-fuel fire.

The sizeable dining room has a timber floor and flows through into the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a good range of cream Shaker-style units, an Aga and a double Belfast sink. A central island unit incorporates a breakfast bar, as well as housing a built-in Miele electric oven and gas hob. Space exists for a freestanding larder fridge and there is an integrated Bosch dishwasher. A large shelved walk-in larder opens off the kitchen.

The practical utility room has storage for outside clothes and plumbing for a washing machine. There is access to the rear of the property and to the garage. This substantial area has a store room, a coal bunker and further storage in the roof space.

On the first floor, a generous landing leads to the five bedrooms. All have built-in wardrobes and the rooms are served by two family bathrooms, each with a bath and separate shower cubicle. There is an airing cupboard on the landing. This plot is included in the sale.

Services – Mains electricity and water are connected to the property. Calor gas central heating. Drainage is via a private system.

Hartburn House is situated in a pleasing edge-of-village location within the delightfully unspoilt rural hamlet of Hartburn with its 11th century church purported to have been used by the Knights Templar.

The stylish and historic market town of Morpeth is located conveniently close by and offers first class schools and an excellent range of amenities. These include good shopping, a variety of pubs, restaurants and hotels, healthcare facilities, petrol stations and garages, and banks. Morpeth also has a mainline train station with direct rail links to the North and South making most major cities and Newcastle’s International Airport very accessible.

The main garden benefits from a high degree of privacy and is partly enclosed by a high wall giving the impression of a secret garden. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn and surrounded on two sides by mature trees. There is a paved patio which offers the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the surroundings.

Approach is via a private gravelled drive which sweeps around to the rear of the property and provides direct access to the large triple garage, the parking area and grass paddock.

Planning consent (16/00816/FUL) has been granted to build a 5 bedroom detached house where the existing L-shaped timber stable block (providing four loose boxes, a lockable tack room and a covered area for hay and straw) currently stands. This plot is included in the sale.
