The Property
The Old Stables & Stable Cottage offer a unique and beautiful property developed around a period courtyard that originally comprised the stable managers house, office and stable yard for Stelling Hall. The sympathetic and high quality work has created a stunning stone-built house with generous accommodation and inviting interior décor along with a substantial single storey cottage. A magnificent central tower links the properties with the grand courtyard archway passing beneath. The sweeping open courtyard and attractive gardens are complemented by a large paddock with stables to provide a wealth of opportunities. Situated close to the popular village of Newton, The Old Stables is set in a rural location yet with excellent access to amenities and regional centres.

The Old Stables
The main house is laid out over two floors with spacious and flexible accommodation. A host of character features are found throughout including eye-catching exposed beams and Victorian woodwork along with period doors and fireplaces. Elegant contemporary fixtures and fittings blend beautifully to add modern comfort. Generous reception space includes the sitting room, drawing room and dining room whilst the welcoming kitchen/breakfast room offers a warm heart to the home.

To the first floor is the generous sleeping accommodation. The principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom and excellent storage. Onward access leads to the study within the tower, providing an inspiring spot to work from home with wonderful views. The guest bedroom also features an en-suite bathroom, whilst two further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.

Stable Cottage
On the east side of the courtyard is Stable Cottage with all accommodation laid out over a single storey. The cottage provides expansive space for guests or dependent relatives, or simply as additional space to the main house. The charming character of the The Old Stables continues throughout Stable Cottage, most strikingly with the panelled barrelled ceiling in the kitchen. There is a large sitting room and two double bedrooms served by a bathroom with bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and WC.

Two gravelled driveways through mature grounds lead to the front of the properties and the parking area. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn and each property has ample outside space to enjoy separately.

A fabulous enclosed courtyard provides an additional garden area with stone flagged sun terrace, and a block paved access lane to the extensive garaging and stable block. The stabling, tack room and hay store are well placed being close to the house and with direct access to the beautiful parkland paddock which has southerly views over the Tyne Valley.
