Full description

A beautiful grade 2 listed stone built terrace with its own hidden oasis gardens, the home is full of fabulous character rooms creating a wonderful spacious yet cosy feeling. A must have home. The cottage is situated in the sought after village of Longhirst, Northumberland. Longhirst is a picturesque English village situated just 3 miles northeast of the Historic Market town of Morpeth. The popular three course golf club is minutes away and you are only a short drive to the beautiful Northumbrian coast. 

This property has a lovely low maintenance cottage style front garden with a patio and flower beds full of heavy scented lavender.

As you come in through the front door you are welcomed into an amazing period living area with a stunning inglenook fireplace featuring a wood burner with a stone surround and exposed brick above. There is a fabulous double glazed window with a window seat and working wooden shutters. The stairs to the first floor are here and there is a large under stairs cupboard behind a cottage style door.

We go through a stone archway into a wonderful kitchen/diner. There is another inglenook here with space for a range cooker, whilst the kitchen units are all handmade and have lovely real wood work surfaces. There is a large Belfast sink and space for a fridge freezer and there is also currently a semi integrated dishwasher. This room has a lot of character with an exposed stone wall and an exposed beam ceiling with spotlights.

As we take the stairs to the first floor we reach the landing with a window overlooking the side of the property.

The good sized family bathroom has only recently been refitted and has wood panelling to three of the walls and exposed stone to the other. There is a claw foot bath with shower taps and a heritage pedestal wash basin as well as a concealed cistern toilet. You have stunning views over the rear of the property out over the blossom trees, currently in full bloom.

The master bedroom again has lovely views over the front of the property and benefits from a period cast iron feature fireplace. It is a good sized double with plenty of charm.

The second bedroom has a step down into it and is again another double. This room has a lovely sash window and an exposed stone wall that adds to the character. And views to the rear of the home.

The third bedroom is pretty and well laid out. It has a window that overlooks the front of the property.

This properties unique selling point is its delightful gardens, a hidden oasis accessed via the lane behind the house. Due to the size of the garden you are able to follow the sun throughout the day.

Externally you come through a door into a very usable space that is currently a utility room with a fabulous vaulted ceiling and a built in overhead airier on a pulley system. There are handmade drawers and cupboards with real wood work surfaces. You go through this room into what is currently used as a home office but could be used as a gym, playroom or yoga studio. The room has high vaulted ceiling and French doors that open on to the amazing Victorian style cottage garden which totals approximately a third of an acre and must not be missed.

As you go out through the French doors you find yourself on a raised paving area that looks down over the gently sloping garden before you. There are carefully laid out borders and a well-manicured lawn with a gravel path that meanders down through the gardens. This area is private and lined with buddleias and mature blossom trees. 

If you follow the path you find yourself at a stone building with a wooden orangery top and a peaked glass roof with a stunning fountain on one wall. There are French style doors to the front and inside the stone slab floor benefits from underfloor heating. There is also a paved seating area in front.
Further down we come to a circular fountain and a pond. At the bottom of the garden is another excellent room. This is the perfect space in which to escape and relax and would make a wonderful craft room or studio due to the natural light provided by the three large windows. There is also a wood burner in here so it is usable all year round. 

Beyond this is a handcrafted wooden bridge that leads you towards an area of woodland that is used by local residents. You are able to walk from here to Hebron.
