The Property
Milkrigg is a detached barn conversion, located in an elevated position on the edge of the popular and pretty hamlet of Thorngrafton, with fabulous far-reaching southerly views across the Tyne Valley. The property offers flexible accommodation with traditional features, such as exposed stone walls and vaulted ceilings, and benefits from stables and paddock land amounting to around 6.2 acres.

To the front of the house there is a glazed porch/sunroom with original flagstone floor which offers a peaceful area to sit and take in the far-reaching beautiful rural views. The porch leads to the entrance hall which also has original stone flooring. The kitchen/dining room is fitted with a range of cream units, Rayburn range cooker, double stainless steel sink and drainer, plumbed for a dishwasher and has three windows to the front and a further window with views of the rear garden. There is a useful pantry off the kitchen which has extensive shelving and plumbing for a washing machine. The sitting room, which has an open fire with stone surround and back boiler, also benefits from a window to the front with stunning southerly views and a stable door through to the garden room, which also offers stunning views to the front and views to the east and north over the paddock land and beyond, and provides a less formal reception room with French doors out to the garden. To the rear of the property a small rear hall, with a door to the rear garden, leads to a study which has glazed sliding doors to the side garden. This room is a very flexible space and could equally be used as a formal dining room or a downstairs bedroom if required. A shower room fitted with shower, wash hand basin and WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs from the hall lead up to the first floor landing which gives access to the three bedrooms and bathroom, all of which have vaulted ceilings and exposed original beams giving individual character and charm. The dual aspect master bedroom has a useful storage cupboard and stunning elevated views to the front and side. There is potential to extend to the rear of the room to create en-suite facilities. The two further bedrooms on this floor both have windows to the front. The bathroom is fitted with a freestanding ball and claw foot bath, wash hand basin, bidet and WC; an over-stairs cupboard provides useful storage space. Also off the landing there is a large linen cupboard.

Externally
To the front there is an open parking area with space for several cars. A five bar gate leads to the side garden which has a gravelled area, which could be used for further parking, and leads on to the adjoining paddock.

To the rear of the house there is a mature garden with lawned area, border planting and a variety of shrubs and trees, a greenhouse and a further gate into the paddock.

The stable block, which offers four loose boxes, lean-to hay store and a chicken shed, is located in the paddock which has a combination of stone wall and fenced boundaries and benefits from a water supply.
