Stunning converted church on the edge of a quiet and popular Northumberland village.

Approached along a tree-lined lane the property was believed to be constructed in 1856 and sits in a plot of circa 0.75 acres. St Marys House showcases the preserved beauty of this former church and architectural craftsmanship is sympathetically incorporated into the design of an impressive residential home. Double doors set within a moulded stone arch provide a grand portal at the entrance, with the reception hall beyond affording glimpses of the galleried landings above with a steel and oak stairway rising to the first floor living area. On this level, a sociable sitting room and dining area are adjoined by a creatively designed kitchen, where the colourful tones applied to the ceiling which reflect the hues of the stained glass window and the sleek cabinetry forms a bold contrast. The study area at a mezzanine level offers a pleasing spot to sit or work alongside a large arched window overlooking the surrounding countryside. At the second floor level there is a light filled drawing room with idyllic views to the north and south through large roof windows. Underfloor heating is used throughout by way of a hybrid air source heat pump/LPG boiler, a MVHR system is also installed.

The bedroom accommodation occupies the ground floor of the property and comprises four stylishly appointed en suite bedrooms, which share the lower level with a utility room with external door and a shower room. Additional storage areas are available at basement level which offers two sub-divided rooms, perhaps providing a cellar for wine aficionados, or could be adapted for other uses.
