Dissington Old Farm is a beautiful traditional Northumbrian Farmhouse, occupying a stunning rural position in Medburn nr Ponteland, with grounds and paddocks extending to approx. 2 acres, and substantial Grade II listed barn and original Gin Gan adjoining the main house. The Farmhouse has been a much loved family home for over 30 years, and offers a unique opportunity for those buyers seeking a special period house with land and outbuildings, or those looking for development potential to create a much larger family home with annexe/conversion (subject to normal planning consents). Many original features have been retained including sash windows and shutters, exposed stone work and stone arches, cast iron range to the dining room and wood floorboards.
The main house has accommodation set over two floors, with four reception rooms, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a shower room to the ground floor. The Farmhouse has already incorporated former outbuildings, with the conversion of the former byre to create an impressive garden room with traditional arch byre windows and doors, with generous first floor accommodation above – this could work well as a self contained separate wing/annexe to the main house for those looking for multi-generational living.

The house is approached down an attractive tree lined driveway, owned by the neighbouring property Dissington Old Hall, and enjoys a fabulous southerly facing aspect , with an extensive private gravel driveway accessed via a stone pillared entrance with cattle grid. Externally, there is a large attached double height barn currently used for agricultural/garden machinery and as a large workshop and original Gin Gan, which offers development potential as additional residential accommodation. The house is surrounded by beautiful mature and well maintained formal gardens with extensive lawns, mature trees and shrubs, orchard and beyond that, two enclosed paddocks ideal for those buyers looking for equestrian facilities.
The house will appeal to a number of buyers, given this special secluded location, within close proximity of Ponteland, Newcastle City Centre, and the A1 and A69 road links for commuting throughout the region.
