For commuters, Newcastle City Centre and Newcastle International airport are both approx 18 miles away. Mitford itself is a picturesque hamlet, a haven for humans and wildlife alike, with a wonderful village pub and church.
Entry is via the front door into a lovely open porch which leads through to a light open hallway. The hallway then leads to the stairs to the first floor.
A door through from the hallway leads to the main living space, a beautiful country cottage room with wooden flooring and coving to the ceiling which creates a decorative finish. There is a stunning square box bay window to the front which allows a wonderful amount of light into the room. The room features an exquisite inglenook fireplace with a wood burner standing on a slate hearth and a wooden mantlepiece above. The alcove to the side has been furnished with wooden shelving which complements the mantle beautifully.
Around the corner from the living area, there is a very attractive light, bright and spacious kitchen. There are solid wood work surfaces with plenty of wall and base units which provide a great amount of storage. There is an electric under-bench oven with a four-burner ceramic hob with a chimney-style extractor fan and a Belfast sink with a free-standing tap behind. There is an integrated washer/dryer, a fully integrated slim-line dishwasher, a fully integrated under bench fridge, and a fully integrated under bench freezer all easily accessible in the kitchen area. The kitchen is finished with brick-style white splashback tiling with attractive grey grouting and spotlights to the ceiling with some very nice semi-industrial lights which adorn the breakfast bar area.
From the rear of this room, there are French doors that lead to a conservatory with a tiled floor (and underfloor heating) with a low maintenance ceiling and windows to two sides with French doors opening onto the rear courtyard area.
The courtyard area leads to some steps to a paved area which is a right of way access to a garage that abuts this garden. This is a joint shared paved area with the property next door and can be used for seating also. Beyond that paved area is the enclosed private garden which is owned by this property. The garden is laid to lawn and houses a wood store for the wood burner within the property. Behind the fenced garden is the good-sized single garage.
The attractive stairway to the first floor features carpet in the centre with stair rods which fits the character of this period property perfectly. There is a window at the top of the stairs that provides natural light to this beautiful space. From the landing, there is a spiral staircase leading to the loft conversion above which is a vaulted ceiling double bedroom.
On the first floor there are 3 rooms and the family bathroom.
The master bedroom is a good-sized spacious double bedroom with stripped wood floorboards painted white. It also boasts a feature fireplace surround by a tiled hearth which adds to the sense of character of this property. The room provides plenty of space for wardrobes and drawers. The ceiling is shaped nicely and the window overlooks trees and greenery to the front aspect of the property.
Bedroom 2 is another double bedroom with a window overlooking the rear garden which provides lots of natural light to the room. The ceiling again is shaped nicely adding to the beautiful feel of the room.
The third room has a semi-vaulted ceiling and a Victorian-style radiator with a window that overlooks the side of the property. The current owners have fitted it as an office with solid wood work surfaces but it could also be a cot room but as it is, it makes a fabulous office area.
The family bathroom has been recently replaced by the current owners. The floor and walls are both fully tiled in a combination of light and dark granite type grey tile. The window overlooks the front of the property. There is a large storage unit next to the shower which houses the electric boiler but also allows space for storage. There is a shaver point, a chrome heated towel rail, a mirrored storage unit on the wall, a pedestal wash hand basin with a waterfall tap, a close coupled WC with a push button, a doubled-ended white bath with a waterfall tap. There is a lovely shower over the bath with a bi-fold shower screen with a separate shower head and waterfall shower head. There is a television built into the wall within the shower area also which provides the ultimate relaxing shower experience!
From the landing you take the beautiful spiral staircase up to the next floor which boasts the loft conversion into a double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and Velux windows to provide natural light. There are mirrored sliding door wardrobes down one side of the room providing good storage and add an extra sense of space. The space behind the door has been used creatively to provide extra storage.
