Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make your home in this excellent three-bedroom cottage, which is set in a really pretty location with fabulous countryside all around. The home is on a courtyard development which provides a real community feel and is on a quiet lane just a few minutes drive out of Morpeth. The home has a garage plus parking for one vehicle on a gravelled area. The home, which is fitted with uPVC external doors and windows also has some wooden windows, is heated via oil central heating. The oil tank is to the front of the property. The home also benefits from a septic tank and mains water, although the latter is fed from a central tank meaning that all properties in the development contribute equally to cover costs for water and sewerage on a quarterly basis.
Recently voted one of the Sunday Times best places to live in Britain, Morpeth town combines stylish shops, a wide range of restaurants and bars, as well as a beautiful park and the William Turner garden. As would be expected in a large town there are supermarkets, doctor's surgeries, dentists, a large leisure centre, golf course, and a lovely stretch of the River Wansbeck to walk along. Morpeth offers excellent schools, leisure facilities, shops, restaurants and pubs. There is easy access to the A1 for commuting to Newcastle city centre, and good public transport links with regular bus services into Morpeth town centre and the nearby train station for services to Newcastle, Edinburgh, York and London Kings Cross.
A double glazed front door opens into an internal porch with a wooden window overlooking the front of the home. The porch has a low-height storage cupboard built-in and also has a semi-vaulted ceiling giving a pretty look. The floor is finished with quality Karndean-style flooring.
A further wood and glass door opens into the main l-shaped hallway, which hosts three good-sized cupboards, one of which houses the hot water cylinder and boiler. Access to the loft, which is mostly boarded for storage, is also from this part of the hallway.
The fabulous large light reception room sits at one end of the hallway. This room is a lounge/dining family room and boasts a modern wood burner in the centre of the room set on a slate hearth. In the living room end, there is lovely coving and a huge window providing an open view over the courtyard garden, which is a superb sun trap. The dining part of the part room has a ceiling rose, more coving, and a wooden glass door that opens into a porch, which itself opens out to the garden via a further uPVC door.
A separate WC sits back up the hallway and comprises a vanity unit with a contemporary black round bowl sink set on it and a separate Monobloc tap and a close coupled toilet with a pushbutton. The room is fitted out with full-height tiling, a fully tiled floor, and a low maintenance ceiling with spotlights.
The kitchen has quality Karndean-type flooring, whilst a big uPVC window overlooks the woodland to the front of the home. The kitchen is fitted with a bowl and a half-black sink, a black work surface with white and slate-grey splashback tiling behind, lots of white wall and base units, a Miele ceramic hob with a chimney style extractor fan above, Miele double eye-level ovens, space for a free-standing fridge and space for a free-standing freezer, a fully integrated washing machine and a fully integrated tumble dryer, as well as a fully integrated dishwasher. At the end of the room, there is space for a little breakfast area, and the room is finished with a low maintenance ceiling with spotlights.
Moving into the other part of the l-shaped hallway, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The bathroom is a huge room and is fully wet-walled, with spotlights in the low maintenance ceiling. The room is fitted out with a heated towel rail, a large double-ended free-standing claw foot bath with shower taps, a large walk-in shower cubicle with two showerheads, a close coupled toilet with a pushbutton, and a large vanity unit with a winged sink on top. The room is finished with a mirror with spotlights above the sink and a cabinet above the mirror.
There are two windows in the part of the hallway which let in lots of natural light and provide views out to the countryside to the front of the home.
The master bedroom sits at the far end of the hall and is dual aspect; a large window and tilt-and-turn door look out to the garden on one side, whilst on the other, an almost floor to ceiling window overlooks the front of the house. This is a very spacious room and is very light and bright.
Bedrooms two and three are almost exact replicas of each other. Both are good-sized double bedrooms, and both benefit from a window and a tilt-and-turn door opening onto the courtyard garden.
