Dating from 1772 and enjoying an idyllic, tranquil woodland setting, The West Wing is a Grade II listed property forming part of Newton Hall, a magnificent stately building of immense historic importance.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished, enhanced and insulated and combines the luxuries of modern-day living with the latest in ecological technology. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the careful restoration of original features and the addition of bespoke fittings, including a state-of-the-art heating system, HDMI CAT-5 cabling, designer sanitary ware and LED feature lights.
The principal rooms are beautifully proportioned, with excellent ceiling heights, and provide significant spaces to relax and entertain. The impressive drawing room has a feature fireplace, original cornicing and characteristic panelling, and boasts an adjoining and extensively fitted wine store for the serious collector. The dining room, also with a fireplace, provides superb space for formal dining, and there is also a spacious study.
The capacious kitchen/breakfast room is undoubtedly a key feature of the property and has been created to suite all culinary requirements. It is fitted with an extensive range of handmade Harrison Reed units, a large central island with an induction hob, down-draft extractor and an integrated solid walnut chopping block. In addition to the main kitchen area, there is a dining area with a wall of bi-folding doors, opening out the room to the gardens and terrace. The ground floor further comprises a side access door, boot room, utility room and a cloakroom.
The first floor is equally well-proportioned and is arranged to provide four generous bedrooms including the master bedroom featuring an original fireplace, an en suite dressing room and en suite shower room. The second double bedroom benefits from an en suite shower and also has direct access to the dressing room, thereby providing flexibility, whilst the two further bedrooms are serviced by a spacious family bathroom
Energy Efficiency The property boasts underfloor heating on both the ground and first floors, provided by two air-source heat pumps. In addition to the benefits of the latest in energy-efficient and green technologies, the property also benefits from a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) of a guaranteed £3052.44 per year, running until 2023.
The property is approached via a long sweeping access road flanked by woodland, providing access to security gates that open onto the formal driveway leading to The West Wing. The property is set within landscaped gardens, designed by local celebrity gardener, Sean Murray, winner of the Great Chelsea Garden Challenge 2015 (organized by the Royal Horticultural Society).
The main area of garden comprises two circular lawns edged in granite sets, complemented by contrasting gravelled areas planted with box-hedging spheres. Mature trees, shrubs, perennials and climbing plants provide a low-maintenance scheme, planted to create year-round interest.
The enclosed terrace provides the perfect spot for alfresco dining. This low-maintenance area is laid to gravel and is punctuated with contemporary planting of box spheres and columnar Cupressus.
The West Wing is situated within a peaceful private estate, just a few minutes drive from the A1 trunk road. The pretty village of Newton-on-the-Moor is located nearby, with its a popular four-star country inn serving quality food. The market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth are within easy reach; both are market towns providing a broad range of shops, leisure facilities, and a number of good schools including Swarland, Shilbottle, Felton Primary School and The Duchesss Community High School.
Access to the dramatic Northumbrian coastline, Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park is easy. A mainline railway station can be found at nearby Alnmouth providing regular and direct intercity services to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London Kings Cross.
The property is also perfectly situated for easy access to Northumberlands stunning and dramatic Heritage Coastline, with the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park all close at hand. There is also an abundance of nature watching to be enjoyed at the Farne Islands.
