The Property

Errington Red House Cottages is a bright and spacious detached Northumbrian stone property formed by the joining of two original cottages and sitting in an enviable and elevated position with uninterrupted views over open countryside. The property provides comfortable and flexible accommodation of generous proportions over two floors with established and well-maintained gardens.

The half glazed front door leads to an entrance vestibule then into the main reception hallway, centrally located, a room of good size giving access to all the downstairs accommodation and stairs to the first floor.

The sitting room is light and bright and of generous proportions with triple aspect to the front, side and rear, oak floor covering, and a multi-fuel stove set on a tiled hearth with attractive fire surround and double doors to outside. Two further rooms to the rear elevation are on offer, one currently used as a home office and the other a playroom which could easily lend itself to a more formal dining room being adjacent to the kitchen.

The stunning kitchen/breakfast room with open plan sitting area and views to the garden provides a fabulous everyday entertaining space, again with triple aspect along with the benefit of bi-fold doors to the rear, and a range of quality bespoke wall and base units commissioned by the Newcastle Furniture Company. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, combination microwave oven, electric Aga, room for a large fridge freezer, Belfast sink with Quooker tap, central island and complementary granite work surfaces. A useful pantry sits to the side of the kitchen where there is also access to the utility room with a further range of cupboards, a sink and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A downstairs WC with wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC completes the downstairs accommodation.

Stairs from the reception hallway lead to the first floor with a feature arched window at half landing level giving the opportunity to enjoy the fabulous far reaching countryside views. The master bedroom, a room of generous proportions, has triple aspect with views to the front, side and rear, fitted wardrobes and large en-suite shower room, with tiling to the walls and floors, underfloor heating, a double sized wash hand basin set within a vanity unit, walk-in rain shower, heated towel rail and WC.

Four further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with walk-in rain shower, bath, wash hand basin within a vanity unit and WC. The elegant sanitary ware throughout the bathrooms is by Villeroy & Boch. An extensive airing cupboard is located on the landing which houses the boiler and gives loft access which is part boarded and has lighting and a loft ladder.


To the side of the property is a gravelled driveway with parking for several cars, whilst a block paved driveway to the front of the property offers further parking. The wrap around gardens are of generous proportions and well-maintained, with lawns to three sides and paved terracing which is ideal for outside entertaining.There are mature borders planted with native tree species, raised beds with traditional terracing of dry-stone walls, whilst hedged boundaries offer a good degree of privacy. There is also a shed, wood store and outside water tap.
