Shadfen Farmhouse is a lovely period home, that was purchased by the current owners just over 20 years ago and has been significantly improved in that time. The property is ideally placed equidistant from both the delightful village of Hepscott and the beautiful and historic market town of Morpeth, with its wonderful shops, cafes, restaurants and railway station, along with its outstanding local schooling.
The internal accommodation briefly comprises: Central entrance hall with staircase leading to the first floor with understairs store | Lounge with dual aspect, period marble fireplace, and French doors leading to the side terrace and gardens | Dining room/reception room two with polished wood flooring, south facing window and wood burning stove | Re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with solid oak units, pantry cupboard, central island, integrated appliances, tiled flooring and French doors leading to the gardens from the dining and breakfast area | The rear hallway then gives access to the rear courtyard and leads through to a utility room with ground floor WC.
The stairs then lead to the first floor landing and onto four bedrooms | Bedroom one is situated to the very end of the hallway and offers a lovely double room with south facing views of the gardens, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room with large walk-in shower and WC | Bedroom two with period fireplace and south facing window | Bedroom three is a small double room with south facing window | Bedroom four is currently laid out as a study and is a single room.
The property also offers a detached, stone built one bedroom cottage, which offers an open plan lounge/diner, a refitted kitchen, a sun/garden room, one double bedroom, and a shower room with WC. This detached cottage is perfect for those elderly relatives, or could also be used as a home studio, and even offers further potential for income should it so be desired.
Externally, the property is accessed via a single track lane with wooden gate, which leads to a large space offering off street parking for multiple vehicles with a timber constructed store. The property then offers a delightful front garden, which offers gravelled walkways with several well stocked flower beds and an abundance of screening from the road. The front garden also enjoys a separate wildflower garden.
The family garden is situated to the west of the house and is laid mainly to lawn with well stocked borders and paved patio seating areas. To the rear, and placed between the main house and the cottage, is a central low maintenance paved courtyard.
Beyond the off-street parking space is an orchard, which extends to approximately 0.2 acres with several fruit trees and fenced boundaries. The large paddock extends to approximately 1 acre and is placed over the main entrance lane and to the west of Shadfen Farmhouse and has housed four Alpacas for the past 20 years. The paddock is ideal for those with an interest in keeping a small horse or pony.
Well-presented throughout, with double glazed windows and oil-fired heating, early internal inspections are strongly advised to fully appreciate the size and quality of accommodation on offer in this exclusive and desirable residential location.
