In an elevated setting, a spacious family home with far reaching views to undulating Northumberland
With attractive red-brick and mock-Tudor elevations, Spinney Brae is a well-proportioned home with versatile accommodation ideally suited to a modern family lifestyle. The reception hall gives access to a sitting room which features a bay window and a fireplace, with glazed doors to a conservatory, where relaxed seating can be enjoyed whilst taking in the aspect to the south and the west. A formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and provides the perfect setting for entertaining, whilst an additional reception room is situated on the opposite side of the house offering a separate space to lounge and watch TV. Fitted with modern, white wall and base level units, the kitchen also provides an island/breakfast bar suitable for informal dining, with an adjoining utility room, offering additional space for appliances and a door to access the outside.
Elevated views to the countryside can be appreciated from the first floor accommodation, which comprises three bedrooms and a study. There is also a family room at this level offering opportunities for a further bedroom, if required, or alternatively an office for home workers, or a hobbies room. The principal bedroom benefits from a fully-tiled, en suite shower room with modern fittings and a large storage cupboard, and there is a large family bathroom.
On a gently sloping plot, the wrap around garden has evergreen hedging to the front and side boundaries and are mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and attractive flower beds. Just beyond the rear boundary, a wooded area provides a leafy backdrop and paving adjoins the rear and side of the house providing spots to sit and enjoy the outdoors. A paved driveway leads to the front of the property providing parking for several cars and gives access to the garage.
In all there is a really good amount of light filled space in this house and the accommodation offers a great degree of flexibility meaning that as the demands and requirements of life change, the property can adapt to suit. The location, as is often the case, is key and Spinney Brae is a superbly situated semi-rural property affording the occupiers a great deal of privacy whilst also being within close proximity to the local facilities that Rothbury has to offer.
The property is situated in Hillside, a residential area on the western fringes of the picturesque town of Rothbury in the heart of Northumberland. The town is surrounded by the Simonside Hills with excellent opportunities for outdoor activities including rambling, hill walking, cycling, bird-watching and canoeing on the River Coquet. Rothbury offers a range of amenities including retail outlets, cafes, restaurants, and public houses, along with tennis, football and golf clubs. Schooling can be found at Rothbury First School and Dr Tomlinsons CofE Middle School, while secondary schooling is available at the outstanding King Edward VI Academy in Morpeth. There are excellent road links in the area, with the A697 and A1 within easy reach and rail services are available from both Acklington and Morpeth mainline stations with journey times of 17 minutes to Newcastle and just over 3 hrs to London Kings Cross.
From the A1 junction to the west of Morpeth, follow the road for just under a mile and take the exit onto the A697. Continue on the road for approximately 7.7 miles and take the left turn onto the B6344 sign-posted to Rothbury and stay on the road for approximately 7.3 miles. Take the left turn onto the B6341 and after approximately 0.7 mile take the right turn onto Gravelley Bank and after 320 metres turn right onto Hillside Road, where the property will be found on the left-hand side.
