West Farm is a substantial and attractive Grade II Listed detached farmhouse located in a pretty and peaceful hamlet within easy reach of all commuting links to Newcastle, Durham, the airport and more locally to Hexham and Corbridge. The farmhouse that now stands is thought to have been built in the mid-18th century, but is believed to incorporate the fabric of a much earlier structure that occupied the site. The remarkable thickness of some of the walls suggests this may have been a defensible building such as a bastle. Today West Farm offers generously proportioned living accommodation across three floors whilst retaining much original character and charm such as a stone relief carving of a dolphin on an external wall. There are fantastic gardens to the rear of the property and to the west is a well-maintained paddock with mature woodland offering shelter.
The entrance vestibule leads to the reception hall and a warm welcome to West Farm. A wood burning stove sits within an impressive stone inglenook and the floor features striking flagged stone. There are three hugely generous reception rooms on the ground floor. The inviting drawing room faces south with a feature fireplace to one end and access out to the gardens. The dining room offers more formal entertaining space with room to seat numerous guests around a dining table, whist the relaxing snug is cosy yet spacious. The wonderful country kitchen is fitted with a fine range of cabinetry with a grand range cooker in a stone inglenook as an eye-catching centrepiece. There is ample space for a table and chairs for day-to-day dining. Beyond the kitchen is the boot room, essential in a country house, and the kitchen is also complemented by a useful utility room.
Stairs rise with a quarter turn from the reception hall to the first floor where there are four large double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fitted storage and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room whilst the two remaining bedrooms on this floor are served by a spacious family bathroom. All of the bedrooms benefit from excellent storage space.
A door from the first floor landing reveals further stairs to the second floor, where the expansive landing area has space for a comfortable reading area or a home office set up. Two bright bedrooms illuminated by windows and skylights offer great flexibility and could be configured for a variety of uses. A shower room serves these two bedrooms and again there is remarkable storage space available.
West Farm sits on the fringe of the peaceful hamlet of Broomley amongst glorious countryside surroundings. There are well-maintained lawns to the front along with a patio with outdoor seating space. A gravelled driveway sweeps around to the rear where there is parking for a number of vehicles. There are further lawned gardens and a superb vegetable plot that has been thoughtfully laid out and carefully looked after. The gardens feature an abundance of plantings, an original well and a greenhouse, all backing on to open fields with panoramic views over the valley.
A substantial stone outbuilding, formerly a tack room and stable, provides excellent storage for outdoor equipment, tools and logs.
There is also a paddock stretching to the west of the house and extending to around 1.66 acres. The paddock is sheltered by mature trees to the boundaries with a small woodland area at the western end creating a haven for wildlife. In all, the house, gardens, ground and land extend to around 2.06 acres.
