An imposing modern 4-bedroom home, along with an annexe property, in the heart of a bustling Town

Laurel House offers extensive and versatile accommodation over two floors with light, airy interiors and up-to-date fittings.

This is one for the urbanites. Lovers of the hustle and bustle. The town dwellers. Supporters of 'keeping it local' and those who want to get involved in the community. With everything on the doorstep it's an opportunity to tread a lighter carbon footprint. Whether that means walking to work, hopping on board the train or even setting yourself up in a spacious home office or studio - the detached annexe building to this property has a multitude of possibilities. Laurel House is afforded a great deal of privacy whilst sitting amidst other homes and businesses.

Laurel House On the ground floor, the reception hall gives access to a generous, double aspect sitting room with fireplace and an adjacent formal dining room, which offers the ideal setting for entertaining. A sleek kitchen/breakfast room has contemporary curved cabinetry, with integrated appliances and granite work surfaces and ample space for a kitchen table. A further reception room provides an additional relaxed sitting room for lounging and watching TV and along with a utility and a cloakroom completes the accommodation on the lower level.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms with the principal room having a dressing area with wardrobe storage and a fully tiled, en suite shower room with modern fittings. In addition to main loft space, generous storage space above the garage is accessible from one of the bedrooms and could easily be converted to provide a dressing room, study or snug, for example. Lastly, a family bathroom, with updated fittings including both a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle.

The Annexe Detached, completely self-contained and situated next to the main house, the annexe provides accommodation on two floors. On the ground floor this includes a workshop area and storage, with four further rooms, one of which has a glazed inner entrance porch to access the principal reception room. Upstairs, there are three main rooms, along with a kitchen area and a cloakroom.

With multi-generational living now more popular than ever, this would make an ideal dwelling for parents or older children that have remained at home. Similarly, it would lend itself to becoming an office with storage, a teenagers’ crash pad, a home cinema and games area, a gym, workshop, an AirBnB property or a standard letting house. Alternatively, it could be your guest wing for when you have a house that is overflowing with guests. Planning may or may not be required for change of use depending on what use you decide to put it to.


Laurel House is tucked-away and amongst town centre buildings and is approached under an archway onto a drive via a wrought-iron gate. With walled boundaries, the driveway provides ample space for parking several vehicles to the front of the properties, in addition to the garaging. The main house has an area of garden to the rear with a paved terrace offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation.


In a courtyard setting, just off Oldgate, which is home to the landmark Morpeth Clock Tower, the property benefits from a central urban location in this thriving Market Town. Historic Morpeth offers a good selection of shops, restaurants & bars, along with a bustling market square and scenic walks that can be enjoyed along the banks of the River Wansbeck which flows through the town. The mainline station provides a convenient commute, whether travelling locally or nationally with direct links to cities which include London, Edinburgh and Leeds and for those wishing to travel further afield, Newcastle International Airport is also within easy reach. The A1 skirts the edges of the town and provides a route northward to Alnwick and Berwick and to Newcastle in a southerly direction, with the A197, Northern Bypass, offering an easy route to the stunning Northumberland coastline. Outstanding rated schooling in Morpeth includes Abbeyfield First School and The King Edward VI Academy.


From the A1 exit onto the A197 and then join the A192 at the roundabout. Continue on the A192 joining Pottery Bank and then Newgate Street which leads into Morpeth town centre. At the roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Oldgate where the property will be found on the left-hand side through an archway between HSBC and the Strutt & Parker office.
