A handsome detached equestrian property with stabling and barns set in 11.18 acres.

Learchild Moor House is a well-presented double fronted stone family home offering over 3,029 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. It has been sensitively modernised to combine the amenities of modern living with character features including sash windows, high ceilings, some exposed stone walls, beams and original fireplaces.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming entrance hall and briefly comprises a generous front aspect sitting room with feature fireplace with woodburning stove, a well-proportioned front aspect dining room with feature stone fireplace and an extensive 35 ft. open plan kitchen/family room with a useful neighbouring utility room with cloakroom and access to the rear garden. The kitchen provides a range of base units with worktops, a Belfast sink, range cooker and integrated Miele dishwasher while the family room area, configurable to the purchaser’s own requirements, features a stone fireplace with woodburning stove. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large pentagonal games room/garden room, accessible from the family and dining rooms, which features glazing to all five aspects including French doors to the garden, an exposed stone wall and a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.

On the first floor the property offers a spacious front aspect principal bedroom with a very large en suite bathroom having a central freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower, three further well-proportioned bedrooms and a generous family bathroom.

This property has 11.18 acres of land.


The property is approached over a gravelled rear driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles and giving access to the two storey 34ft. Byre, with a useful cloakroom. In addition there is a large tin barn and a modern detached stable block with four looseboxes and a tack/feed room housing the biomass pellet boiler.

The formal garden is laid mainly to lawn bordered by mature hedging and trees and a small area of light woodland, the whole property enjoys far-reaching views over the property's 11.18 acres of woodland and paddocks and the stunning Northumberland countryside towards the Cheviots.

Agents Note The detached stone byre has previously had planning permission for conversion to a residential dwelling property ancilliary to the house. Subject to planning, this would make an ideal annex for a family member, guests or as a holiday let. Recently reroofed and insulated.
