The Property

Silver Birches is a substantial detached property situated in a private and popular cul-de-sac position in the highly desirable Tyne Valley village of Riding Mill. Occupying a picturesque position in this most sought-after location, the property is set within extensive landscaped gardens which are beautifully maintained and offer a high degree of privacy. An impressive home, the property is immaculately presented throughout and has been thoughtfully designed to provide spacious and versatile accommodation. Large windows flood the property with natural light and offer sensational views over the stunning gardens.

There are three reception rooms, including the exceptionally spacious sitting room with views over the gardens to the rear and side. The dining room offers more formal entertaining space and has a delightful feature fireplace. The third reception room is currently used as a games room, but with its substantial size could be reconfigured for a variety of uses. The splendid breakfasting kitchen is a fabulous heart of the home, with large doors providing direct access to the rear gardens and a concealed store room offering useful pantry and storage space. A private study and downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. To the first floor there are four fabulous bedrooms and a family bathroom. The impressive master bedroom is bright and spacious, benefiting from built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, two of which offer en-suite shower rooms. The loft is accessed via a hatch in the ceiling of the first floor and is partly boarded.


Silver Birches is accessed via a private driveway leading to a parking area for several cars. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and beautifully maintained, with hedging to the boundary. Attractive timber gates to the side of the property provide access to the stunning landscaped gardens positioned to the rear. Enclosed and extensive in size, the rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with trees, shrubs and raised flowerbeds. An impressive paved patio area provides the ideal place for alfresco entertaining, whilst a second sun terrace in the heart of the gardens offers further opportunity to enjoy the tranquil setting. A third patio area sits to the side overlooked by the dining room, offering yet more flexibility.
