An expansive family house with rural views across the Northumberland countryside
Set apart from its neighbours, this spacious rural home is the idyllic country retreat. Bursting with quaint period charm, Postmans Cottage also provides a generous amount of family living space, including a large sitting/ dining room as well as four good-sized bedrooms.
The sitting/dining room is a key feature of the property with a feature fireplace, two bay windows and a central timber staircase, all providing charming focal points. An adjoining conservatory may be accessed through double doors and offers pleasant views. The spacious country-style kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a good range of units, integral appliances and an Aga, leads to a well-equipped utility room, with the garage and office beyond. To the rear of the house, a secondary entrance opens into a small reception hall, which in turn provides access to the kitchen/breakfast room and a useful cloakroom. On the first floor, there is an additional sitting room which features glass-panelled doors opening out into the master bedroom, forming part of a unique master suite. The bedroom offers plenty of built-in storage and benefits from an impressive en suite bathroom, as well as a covered balcony, offering views over neighbouring countryside. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a well-proportioned family bathroom.
Integrated seamlessly into the stone-clad building, the garage provides access to the self-contained office that offers potential for a number of uses, with double glass doors opening to the outside area.
This property has 0.6 acres of land.
A gated driveway with a turning circle provides parking for numerous vehicles and there is a large lawned garden, containing a variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees.
Low Heighley is a desirable location, on the northern outskirts of the bustling market town of Morpeth, yet very much nestled in the haven of rural Northumberland. Morpeth, on the banks of the river Wansbeck, offers a wide range of shopping options including a weekly farmer's market, as well as first rate schooling and plenty of heritage sights and local culture.
Morpeth offers easy access to the commercial centres of the north-east, including Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Middleshborough and Teesside. Rail services are available to Newcastle, Edinburgh and Londons King Cross Station from Morpeth Station and whilst regular flights, both national and international, are available at Newcastle International Airport.
Around 10 miles away to the north east is the delightful Druridge Bay with its seven-mile stretch of golden sands and dunes, while Northumberland National Park can be reached 20 miles to the west, for those wanting to immerse themselves even further in the natural delights of the area. Local walks can be found on the doorstep of this peacefully-located property.
From Morpeth, drive north on the A1 and fork immediately left onto the A697. Follow the road for about 300m and turn left. Postmans Cottage will be found on the right hand side.
