The Property
The Old Farmhouse is a charming property nestled at the foot of the hills within the Northumberland National Park. The property has undergone extensive renovation by the current owners allowing for flexible living throughout. A wealth of character has been retained with exposed stone work and wooden floors sympathetically blending with more contemporary fixtures and fittings. The location is truly stunning with delightful rural views making the most of the setting.
The main entrance sits to the front elevation with a solid wood door leading into the inner vestibule with a further part glazed and wooden door accessing the main reception room. This generously proportioned room extends across the full width of the house with tiled floor and beamed ceiling and is a naturally bright space, offering a flexible arrangement with a multi-fuel stove and a woodburner set within stone inglenooks to either end providing two separate living areas. An inner hall leads off the reception room with stairs leading to the first floor and access to the kitchen. The kitchen sits to the rear of the property and lends itself to everyday use, with views over the garden and beyond, as well as having an external door. The kitchen is fitted with a range of painted wooden units with complementary wooden worktops, Belfast sink, integral fridge and dishwasher and space for a range style cooker. A utility room is located opposite the kitchen with plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and access through to the downstairs bedroom.
The downstairs bedroom offers a versatile space and could easily be used as a further reception room or home office. A shower room with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC links the main house with the annexe accommodation.
Stairs lead to the first floor landing with three generous bedrooms off. The main bedroom sits to the front with the most stunning views to two sides. A feature fireplace gives character to the room with a wooden floor and wood panelling to one wall adding to the style of the property.
