Fenwick Towers Farmhouse, situated within the beautiful settlement of Fenwick, just to the west of Stamfordham and close by to the village of Matfen, is a magnificent and historical country house with land extending to approximately 2.62 acres including formal gardens and paddocks.
Fenwick Towers Farmhouse has origins dating back to the 1100s and has, in more recent centuries, been rebuilt to create the current property which is highly desirable. The old stonework and architecture is immediately obvious from its external appearance which reflects the age of the house and its stunning history.
The property was purchased by the owner circa. 2003 and since that time has undergone further improvements and alterations to create this beautiful family home. The property is set amongst a small settlement of more recently converted farm buildings and enjoys delightful, uninterrupted views over its magnificent rural surroundings to the south and east of its gardens and grounds; the views are particularly attractive during the spring and summer months.
The internal accommodation includes a fabulous entrance and reception hall, which branches off to a sitting room and a separate reception room, currently used as a study. Both reception rooms are at the front of the house and have lovely fireplaces. The rear kitchen/breakfast room is a great characterful room which leads on to a utility room and cloakroom/wc.
The stunning family home has four double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and the remaining three with access to the family bathroom. The internal accommodation is supported by warm, cosy and highly tasteful architectural features, including beautiful doorways, lovely stone window lintels and jambs, as well as a feature AGA to the kitchen/breakfast room, which forms the centre of this impressive house.
The property has its own stable block, built of timber, which includes two loose boxes, a tack room and access to the grazing paddocks, with a separate equestrian gate to the western boundary.
The formal gardens surrounding the house are ideal for families with a lovely vegetable garden, as well as an adjoining stone building which has potential for further accommodation as a studio annexe or garden/dining room. The dene that runs down the eastern boundary with its small copse of trees is very attractive in the spring and leads down to the enclosed paddocks to the south.
Adjacent to the property is a separate derelict barn which the current owners intend to separate from the Farmhouse and refurbish as a three bedroom property for their own living purposes (details of the planning permission for this are available on file).
The nearby village of Stamfordham, with its local Primary School, is highly sought after and highly commendable. The accessibility it enjoys through Northumberland into the Tyne Valley, as well as close proximity to Ponteland and Newcastle, is very convenient.
