Believed to have been constructed 1820 under the design and specification of John Dobson, is this beautiful detached, stone built, country dwelling.
This magnificent Georgian house was purchased by the current owners in 1996 and since that time has been extensively modernized, updated and refurbished. The owners have spent considerable sums in ensuring that the restoration was carried out to the highest of standards, re-instating plaster ceilings, restoring wood furniture and panelling and refurbishing the rooms with beautiful interior design.
The house sits in majestic gardens and grounds which extend to circa eight acres.
The formal pillared entrance with electric gates leads through a meandering drive to the front south facing main entrance, continuing to connect with a courtyard with a range of outbuildings and rear entrance.
This fine country home is set back from the local road and close by to the amenities and facilities of Felton village. It enjoys easy access to the A1 linking to Morpeth and Newcastle to the south and Alnwick and Edinburgh to the north. The mainline railway links into London Kings Cross and the A1 connects to Newcastle’s International Airport.
The accommodation includes a fine reception hall and staircase, a beautiful drawing room and a stunning dining room situated to the front of the house, both with fireplaces. The family room is to the western elevation and leaves on to an Amdega conservatory. The drawing room leads to a rear lobby and a cloakroom/wc. The billiard room overlooks the landscaped gardens to the east. To the rear of the hall there is a butler’s pantry and fitted kitchen. It links onto the kitchen and breakfasting room, professionally equipped with handmade maple wood cabinets and an Aga. The kitchen leads on in turn to a day room and a study.
The house has an extensive arrangement of cellars and store rooms.
To the first floor the principal landing connects to four double bedrooms; one of which is used as a
sitting room. The master bedroom has its own private dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There is a family bathroom adjacent to the remaining bedrooms and the principal guest bedroom also has its own en-suite.
A rear wing connects to two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The house has extensive stabling, outbuildings, a croquet lawn and a paddock. It is surrounded by mature woodland which connects to the river beneath. The walled garden is highly impressive with walkways and sitting areas.
