Middle Leazes is a substantial and imposing property set in an elevated position of the edge of Hexham. The original property dates back to the 17th century and has been extended in more recent times to create a fantastic versatile home. The accommodation is laid out over two floors with plenty of character throughout including some original windows, open fireplaces, decorative cornicing as well as being filled with an abundance of natural light.
The prominent main entrance sits to the front of the property with solid wood door leading into the entrance vestibule. The main hallway has access to the ground floor accommodation and an elegant staircase leading to the first floor. The kitchen opens into the garden room, creating a real heart of the home with beautiful outlook over the private gardens. The kitchen is fitted with a range of high quality units finished with complementary granite worktop. Integral appliances include a dishwasher and wine cooler, with space for a range-style cooker and fridge freezer. A useful utility room and larder are situated off the kitchen.
The recently refurbished drawing room is situated to the front of the property with charming bay window, dual aspect and attractive open fireplace. The dining room offers a more formal entertaining space and leads through to the useful study with window seat overlooking the gardens. A more recent addition to the property is the ground floor guest accommodation which easily lends itself to use as a self-contained annexe. With its own entrance sitting to the side of the property, an inner hallway gives access to the generous and well-appointed double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
To the first floor, the split level landing gives access to the bedroom accommodation along with the family bathroom which is fitted with a shower cubicle, WC, wash hand basin and bath. The master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect of the gardens and beyond whilst benefitting from an en-suite shower room with shower, wash hand basin, bidet and WC. The boarded loft can be accessed from the master bedroom. A further guest bedroom, also benefitting from an en-suite shower room, enjoys rural views to the rear. Two further double bedrooms are located in the new part of the house. A useful dressing room is located to the end of the landing, ideally suited to a nursery or study.
Middles Leazes is entered via wrought iron gates and stone pillars allowing access onto the gravelled drive which sweeps to the front of the property, with generous turning circle and ample parking for numerous vehicles. The gardens offer various areas of interest with a patio leading directly off the garden room and steps leading down to formal landscaped garden with mature and well established borders. A productive orchard sits in one corner of the grounds with an area laid to lawn adjacent.
A wooden car port with shed attached provides undercover parking for two vehicles and storage for outdoor maintenance equipment.
