The Property

High Ash is currently a modest cottage which sits on a spectacular three acre sloping site on the south side of the River Tyne, with far-reaching views across the Tyne Valley.

This site now comes with planning permission which allows for the development of an amazing contemporary five bedroom country house. The new house has been designed over three floors, which hug the natural slope of the land and give outstanding views from all rooms, whilst achieving maximum privacy. There is also room for the development of a large landscaped garden, to blend with the natural rural surroundings.

This is a rare opportunity to build a large modern home, tailored to your very own specifications, on a prime piece of land in a superb location, with 180 degree views over the Tyne Valley and the highly sought after village of Corbridge.

A sheltered entrance on the ground floor leads to a sensational open plan living space, with kitchen, dining and sitting areas, all of which look out through a glazed elevation onto a large terrace that runs the full width of the building. In addition, there is a large utility room, and two en-suite bedrooms.

The lower ground floor includes two further large en-suite bedrooms, with views directly on to the garden. The first floor is a magnificent master bedroom and spacious bathroom, with a dramatic and breath-taking vista over the Tyne Valley.
