General
The sale of Lowick South Steads represents a unique opportunity to build a wonderful family home in a well located quiet rural setting in ten acres of land. The property, currently a derelict stone built double fronted farmhouse and attached steading has planning permission to rebuild and extend to create a spacious family home built around a courtyard. It is rare to find an opportunity of this nature in a rural setting and rarer still that it has attached land giving the opportunity for use as a smallholding. The property is located to the east of the village of Lowick which has a local shop, primary school and pub.

The Property
The south facing farmhouse and steading are currently derelict. The current plans (ref 05/B/0414) permit for the house to be extended through into the steading building to create a bright and spacious home with flexible accommodation and wonderful rural views. The existing building is constructed of stone under a pan tiled roof.

Outside
The house is set in its own grounds on the south eastern boundary of the plot. The total size of the land is some 10 acres and could be sub divided to provide a number of paddocks and planted with woodland to add to the amenity.

Location
Lowick South Steads is in a wonderful rural location close to the village of Lowick and surrounded by the North Northumbrian countryside. The Northumbrian village of Lowick has a range of local services with a village shop, two pubs and a primary school. Berwick upon Tweed, the area’s principal town is some ten miles away and has a comprehensive range of shops, supermarkets and facilities. Berwick has a railway station on the East Coast mainline with regular services to Edinburgh, Newcastle upon Tyne, London and intervening stations.
