The Property
Breckon Hill is located in a stunning rural setting, near the hamlet of Lowgate, very close to Hexham, and with only a handful of neighbours. The property is stone-built period farmhouse, beautifully finished and maintained both inside and out, and with extensive gardens and glorious views across the surrounding rolling fields, Breckon Hill is a wonderful family home and the opportunity for a true country lifestyle.

The front door opens into a large, welcoming reception hallway with wood burning stove set within a stone fireplace. The main reception rooms radiate from this; an elegant, light sitting room and a sophisticated drawing room, both with window shutters and stone fireplaces. The impressive kitchen/dining room is also accessible from the sitting room, providing a seamless flow between these two areas.  This is a fantastic light, bright open plan living and entertaining space with vaulted ceiling and exposed wooden ceiling beams adding bags of character. An excellent range of modern wall and floor units, including a large island bench and integrated appliances, sit alongside a traditional style range cooker, wood burning stove and stable door to the rear garden. A walk-in pantry and downstairs WC are very handy features, as is the spacious study with a wall of built-in cupboards, ideal for home working or as a play room, and a well-equipped utility room with laundry facilities and an external door.

A sweeping staircase leads from an inner hall to the first floor. The principal bedroom is dual aspect and has stunning countryside views. It benefits from built-in wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and has space for a sofa as well as bedroom furniture. Three further bedrooms; two with built-in storage, one with en-suite shower room and all showcasing the amazing views, and a luxurious family bathroom with modern freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower, also grace the first floor.

A sweeping driveway and graveled area to the front of the house provide excellent access and parking, alongside the detached garage. To the rear, a terraced area provides a gorgeous place to sit, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside, alongside a well-manicured walled garden with lawn and mature trees and shrubs. There is also a dog enclosure. Fenced land stretches from the house to the burn.
