The Property

Low Farm is a substantial detached property occupying a picturesque position in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. Approached via a sweeping private driveway, the property is set in generous south facing gardens and offers a range of outbuildings as well as stunning open views of the surrounding countryside. Low Farm currently comprises a three-bedroom farmhouse with a linked on or two-bedroom cottage annexe but there is considerable potential to update and modify the current layout of the property, subject to the necessary planning consents. The original building is believed to date back to c.1840 and the farmhouse offers charming character features such as exposed timber beams and inglenook fireplaces with multi-fuel stoves. The spacious and versatile accommodation is well-presented throughout, with large windows creating a welcoming atmosphere. The farmhouse offers two generously-proportioned reception rooms as well as a bright and spacious kitchen, a garden room, a utility room, a WC and separate bathroom. To the first floor there is a family bathroom and three bedrooms, one of which offers an en-suite shower room and a dressing room. The linked one or two bedroom cottage offers a kitchen/breakfast room, and a garden room flooding the property with natural light and offering fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. The first bedroom is served by an en-suite shower room, and the sitting room/bedroom also has its own en-suite shower room.


Low Farm is set back from the road and approached by a sweeping private driveway leading to parking for several vehicles. To the rear of the property, the generous south facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a vegetable patch, well stocked borders and fencing to the boundary. Beyond the garden at the southerly boundary there are six stone built outbuildings, a blockwork shed and hay shed. These buildings serve two grazing paddocks, extending to just under 6 acres.
