Yopa are extremely pleased to bring to the market this fabulous four bedroom (two with ensuites) stone built property occupying a very pleasant location that benefits from stunning views to the rear. Beautiful cottage style gardens to the front and rear offer idyllic spaces from which to enjoy the outdoors and take advantage of these views. A garage is available, entered via an electric sectional door, along with a block paved driveway. An attractive little wooden overhang at the front door offers protection from the elements and also adds to the overall country cottage feel of the home which also has a wooden front door and UPVc windows.
Longframlington has a number of local amenities including an award-winning village shop, a well known and popular butchers, public houses, The Running Fox cafe, doctors surgery, hairdresser and Longframlington gardens. The Memorial Hall has lots of activities suitable for all the family, there is a walking club, a dog walking area in the centre of the village and a children's play area. The village also benefits from good transport links to Morpeth and Newcastle.
The front door leads into a lovely open hallway with stairs to the first floor, a handy cupboard below and various oak doors leading off. These oak doors continue throughout the home and are adorned with pretty handles.
The first main door leads into a superb open plan kitchen/dining/living space which is nice and bright courtesy of several windows which circulate a wealth of natural light as well as showcasing amazing views. French doors offer access into the rear garden creating an ‘external’ extension to this impressive space.
The kitchen section of the room is presented in a cottage style with wooden shaker style doors to its range of units finished with attractive handles. A stylish granite work surface has a more modern look but complements the units perfectly. A beautiful centre island with matching doors and a solid wood work surface offers a great place for food preparation and also boasts a section of granite at one end which has been cleverly cut into the work surface to create a lovely breakfast bar area. There is space for a range cooker, space for an American style fridge freezer, a full size fully integrated dishwasher and a double Belfast sink with a pretty designer style tap. There are some cleverly concealed refuse receptacles and also a built-in plate rack, perfect for showcasing favourite crockery. Ample space is available to accommodate sofas, chairs or perhaps a dresser, whatever suits your requirements and there is also a further cooking option courtesy of a large inglenook fireplace with a brick surround and a wood burner/multi-fuel burner/range set within! The space is finished with ceiling spotlights and wood flooring and is a truly outstanding room in which to enjoy family time and drink in the marvellous views over the garden and down the valley.
Moving away from this space, an opening takes you into an impressive garden room that features a solid roof and exposed stone walls along with gorgeous travertine type tiling to the floor. French doors lead into the garden making this an extremely inviting space.
Leading off the kitchen is a door giving access into the garage which offers a utility area with plumbing and space for a washing machine as well as space for a tumble dryer. There is also a handy single bowl stainless steel sink. The oil boiler is located here and there is further space to perhaps place a chest freezer if required. The remainder of the room offers great storage potential.
To the other side of the hallway is the lounge which is spacious yet cosy with a large window giving lovely views to the front and French doors leading into the cottage style garden to the rear. This room also boasts an inglenook type fireplace with a brick insert and little wood burner sat within finished with a beautiful surround, a very pleasant focal point to the space and ideal for the colder months.
A ground floor cloaks is a great addition to this floor and offers a close coupled WC with push button and a vanity unit with a rectangular bowl sink on top. This space has wood flooring which continues on from the hallway. At the end of the hallway is a very useful boot room that offers ample space to sit and remove footwear and outdoor clothing, perhaps after a pleasant day of walking. Hanging space is available here which ensures items can ventilate and dry in some sort of order.
Moving up to the first floor there is a nice open landing with a window to the front allowing natural light to stream into the space. This floor also boasts more of the delightful oak doors which are in keeping with the character of the home.
The master suite is very spacious and boasts a shaped ceiling which adds to the cottage character of the room. There is a bank of mirrored wardrobes as you enter the room along with a large built-in cupboard that also houses the hot water cylinder. The room is lovely and light courtesy of a window to the side and a further one to the rear giving stunning views over the garden and down the valley. Its ensuite has been replaced by the current owners and is another truly beautiful space with an offset quadrant shower cubicle, a large wooden vanity unit with a stunning granite countertop together with a round bowl ceramic sink and freestanding tap and a close coupled WC with push-button. In addition, there is a chrome heated towel rail and an electric mirror. Wood effect flooring along with full tiling to the walls in a cream-toned, sheen tile finishes the space perfectly. Ceiling spotlights add to the brightness of the room and there is also a lovely aspect from the window.
Bedroom two is also a double, dual aspect with a window to the front and a Velux to the rear and has a shaped ceiling and a sliding door mirrored wardrobe. This room also benefits from an ensuite fitted with a shower cubicle and waterfall shower head, fully tiled within by way of a white mottled tile with a pretty dark coloured mosaic running through, a wooden vanity unit with a striking black coloured sink on top adorned by a free-standing tap and a matching coloured mosaic behind and a close coupled WC with push-button. There is also a chrome heated towel rail and vinyl flooring.
Bedroom three is a further double, also with a charming shaped ceiling. There is a window to the front and a Velux to the side allowing natural light to flow into the room giving it a calming, restful vibe. Bedroom four is a small double/large single with a window to the side offering pretty views of the village green, a favoured area for dog walkers. This room also has a shaped ceiling adding further character.
The family bathroom has a stylish, designer feel and offers a luxurious sanctuary from the stresses of the day. A free-standing double-ended bath takes centre stage and is an idyllic place for a good, long soak. A vanity unit with a large, half egg-shaped black coloured sink sitting on top is a further striking feature of the room and little ‘flecks’ within the sink catch the light beautifully and create a stunning, sparkly effect. A pretty glass mosaic tile behind and a designer tap emerging from the wall are the perfect accompaniments and very pleasing on the eye. In addition, there is a concealed cistern WC with a push button and a chrome heated towel rail. Ceiling spotlights in a shaped ceiling add to the overall brightness of this space and there is also a Velux for natural light.
Externally this fabulous family home offers excellent space to the rear and boasts what could be a unique talking point when entertaining guests by way of its own ‘Hansel & Gretel’ building. This is a beautiful bespoke built structure with individual shingle type roof tiles as well as windows for natural light along with its own electric, water and excellent insulation. It is used by the current owners as hobby space, however, it has scope to be utilised as a home/office or perhaps a man cave depending on individual requirements. Paths also wind their way around the garden which has been planted in a pretty cottage style along with little lawned areas. A further advantage is its south facing position allowing you to enjoy the most hours of sunlight during the day as well as taking in the superb views down the valley towards the Morpeth area. Secure fencing makes this space ideal for children and family pets too and there is also a shed offering further storage potential.
