Rookwood House is a wonderful detached period residence, that is ideally located in the lovely and historic village of Widdrington, Northumberland. The property itself was purchased by the current owners approximately 2 ½ years ago and has undergone a full transformation throughout.
This charming period home offers easy access into central Morpeth, which lies approximately 8 miles to the south, with its wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants, the East Coast main line Railway Station with links into Newcastle, Edinburgh and London Kings Cross, as well as excellent local schooling for all ages. Rookwood House is also positioned close to the delightful Druridge Bay, with its wonderful sandy beaches, and the coastal villages of Amble and Warkworth also only a short drive away.
The A1 trunk road is easily accessible for commuting both north to Alnwick and Berwick, and south to Newcastle upon Tyne and Newcastle International Airport.
The property itself is accessed via a private driveway that sits behind two stone pillars. The driveway then leads up to a large hard-standing which offers off street parking for multiple vehicles and provides access to the detached garage.
Ground Floor – Entrance hall which is open to the first floor | Lounge with dual aspect windows and plantation shutters, exposed beams and wood-burning stove | Dining room/reception room two, again with dual aspect windows, exposed beams and views over the front gardens | Stylish re-fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, tiled splashbacks and exposed stone walls. The kitchen is open to the utility area, which in turn offers a door leading through to the rear of the property with a ground floor cloakroom/WC and dog shower room.
First Floor – The stairs then lead up to the first floor landing, which is split level, and onto three double bedrooms and a beautiful re-fitted family bathroom with free-standing bathtub | Bedrooms one and two offer period fireplaces.
Externally – the property enjoys a substantial garden site, with the house sitting centrally to its approximate 2 acre plot, and includes a private rear garden, which is partly walled with views towards Holy Trinity Church, a beautiful and mature front garden. The property boasts an impressive road frontage of 75m along which runs a beautiful stone wall set back from the road, adding to the impressive approach.
To the rear of the house is a store room that has clear and easy potential to be converted into a home office should it be required.
Well-presented throughout, this great period home simply demands an early inspection and early viewings are strongly advised.
