The accommodation is beautifully presented to an exacting standard and offers generously proportioned accommodation over two floors to include; an impressive lounge boasting an original feature place, decorative panelling and cornice as well as concealed wine store. Versatile second reception room ideal as a formal dining room/bedroom five and a further study or playroom. The breakfasting kitchen is fitted with handmade Harrison Reed units with a number of integrated appliances and solid walnut central island with integrated walnut chopping board, hob and down draft extractor.

To the first floor there are four generous bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys original fireplace with both dressing room and en suite shower room/wc. The second large double bedroom may also be utilised as the master bedroom, again with en suite shower room/wc. Bedroom three is serviced by a bespoke family bathroom/wc including infinity bath and digital shower with shower head speaker system. The fourth double bedroom is also with en suite shower room/wc.

The West Wing is ideally placed from which to explore Northumberland’s Heritage coastline as well as the surrounding Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Parks.

Energy Efficiency

A focal design feature of this property is the underfloor heating which is installed to both the ground and first floor and is provided by two air source heat pumps. The heating costs have been estimated at around £120 pcm equating to £1440 per annum (assuming electricity costs at 12p per kWh). In addition to this the property also benefits from the latest energy-efficient and green technologies which provide the property with a renewable heat incentive (RHI) of a guaranteed £3052.44 per year for 7 years from the date of completion, equating to £21,364 over the total period (plus any increase following a rise in the rate of inflation).
