One of four visually similar cottages standing on the north side of the Hexham to Carlisle line and with a lovely southerly aspect across the Tyne Valley. This stone built semi-detached cottage has been extended and considerately modernised whilst retaining its quintessential character. The large cottage garden, a prominent feature of the property, includes a summerhouse with electric power which would lend itself to home office use if desired. The interior accommodation includes:
Stone entrance porch with slate floor and traditional solid entrance door opening into the main living room which is centred on an impressive stone Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. The reclaimed parquet floor is a particular feature together with the stone mullioned window and exposed ceiling beams. A door leads back into the dining room which enjoys a continuation of the parquet flooring and leads directly on to the kitchen.
The kitchen extends around in an l-shape and is fitted with an extensive range of quality pine fronted units with wood worksurfaces and quarry floor tiling which perfectly compliment the style of the cottage. Equipment includes a 1½ bowl sink unit, extractor canopy with 4 ring electric hob and separate oven and grill. There is space for a tall larder fridge and plumbing for washing machine.
Upstairs, the galleried landing includes a drop down loft hatch and access to the main bedroom, peacefully situated to the rear of the cottage and well provided with built in wardrobes and cupboards. To the front there are two further bedrooms (making three in total) and a family bathroom with tiled floor, part wall panelled with surround tiling, white bath with shower above, washbasin and WC.
The outside space is a joy. To the front the cottage garden falls away from a flagged terrace with a large central lawn surrounded by shrub borders and smaller alcoves, all meticulously maintained and providing a lovely backdrop for both the cottage and detached summerhouse at the foot of the garden. In addition, is useful garden shed is tucked away in the corner and private parking space is located to the rear, above the enclosed yard with covered oil and boiler storage.
