Full description

Yopa are delighted to bring to the market this stunning three bedroom stone built terraced period cottage with lots of original features, situated in the heart of the popular country village of Powburn. Heating and hot water comes from a multi fuel wood burner, and the home has all the usual mains connections and uPVC double glazed windows and external doors throughout.

In the foothills of Northumberland’s Cheviot Hills, nestled in the Breamish Valley lies the unspoilt Powburn village, with its vibrant and friendly community it is stunning and sought after location. The village itself benefits from an excellent general store as well as a village hall and a post office. Despite its rural charm, it has excellent transport links with regular buses running to and from Alnwick, Kelso and Newcastle, making this an ideal spot for those wishing to escape to the country whilst still having good access to those larger towns and cities.

Externally there is parking to the rear of the home and a lovely paved area, ideal for alfresco dining. The home also boasts a coal house, a wood store, and an external pizza oven, which is an ideal extra feature.

Coming into the kitchen/breakfast room there is a semi vaulted ceiling with spotlights, Karndean flooring, a Smeg under bench electric oven, a four burner ceramic hob with a built in extractor fan above, a good number of wall and base units with solid wood doors and lots of bench space above, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a free-standing fridge freezer. There is also the added benefit of a breakfast area with a solid wood surface which comes out from the wall. There is also a large UPVC window that overlooks the rear of the property which gives the room a bright, light and airy feel.

The lounge is accessed through a cottage style wooden door, which opens into a fabulous period room with a large window overlooking the front of the property and a deep window sill, which is great for display purposes. There is an open wooden staircase which takes you to the first floor of the property. A multi-fuel wood burner occupies a large inglenook fireplace with an impressive stone lintel above which really sets off this extremely spacious yet very cosy and welcoming room, and which is currently used as a lounge/diner. 

A lovely modern bathroom runs off the lounge with a window overlooking the rear of the property. The bathroom features a pedestal wash hand basin, a white enamelled cast iron bath with shower taps, full floor to ceiling tiling around the bath and spotlights to the ceiling.

The downstairs spare bedroom is a good size double bedroom with a window overlooking the front of the property and a nice deep windowsill for display purposes. This is a very spacious room which could fit two double beds. A cottage style door then leads through to the ensuite, comprising spotlights to the ceiling, tiles to the floor and tiles around the shower cubicle, an offset quadrant shower cubicle with an electric shower, a close coupled WC, a pedestal wash hand basin with some delightful mosaic splash back tiling in aqua tones behind the sink, and a chrome heated towel rail. A window overlooks the rear of the property.

On the first floor the landing area has a shaped ceiling and outstanding exposed wooden beams and partial roof trusses. Coming off the landing there is a WC, with a Velux in the ceiling for natural light, a corner hand basin, a space saver corner toilet and stripped wood floorboards to the floor.

The master bedroom again features the most amazing exposed roof trusses and beams, a vaulted ceiling with spotlights and stripped wood floorboards to the floor. A window to the front and a Velux to the back of the room provide natural light. The room has a real traditional period feel and is an extremely spacious area with the benefit of built in wardrobes.

Across the landing to the other end of the house, the third bedroom is a double bedroom but is currently being used as an office. Two cupboards at the back offer great storage and the room features a shaped ceiling with spotlights, exposed beams and roof trusses. A window to the front of the home and a Velux to the rear allow natural light to flood the room and stripped floorboards to the floor add another lovely quality touch.

Overall this astounding property is brimming with character and is situated in a fantastic idyllic village location. The village has a petrol station with a very comprehensive shop within easy walking distance of the home.
