**FABULOUS STONE DETACHED PROPERTY - Four Bedrooms LOVELY SECLUDED POSITION High Quality Fitments Throughout - SUPERB ORANGERY EXTENSION** Approached by a private road and through a gated entrance Folly Dyke is a fabulous individually designed stone built property set in a lovely secluded and elevated position. It would make an ideal residence for those looking for a degree of privacy and seclusion yet at the same time being within a short drive or just a few minutes walk away from the amenities and shopping facilities of Alnwick town centre. Golfers will be interested to know that access to Alnwick Golf Club can be made by walking down the bridleway opposite the gated entrance. Folly Dyke is an imposing house that stands grandly at the end of a gravel drive accessed through large wooden gates which provide privacy and lead into the extensive and well established front garden with its mature trees and shrubs. Stepping through into the hall with its fine open staircase one is immediately impressed by the high standard of fixtures and fitments which combined with a superb standard of dÃ©cor give this property a wonderfully light, bright and welcoming atmosphere. Beautiful solid wood flooring is laid down to the hall, living room and sitting room with Karndean slate effect flooring to the kitchen, utility room and Orangery dining room creating a stunning effect which is nevertheless easy to keep clean and maintain. The ground floor area has been particularly well designed and as you step into the living room with its lovely inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove the feeling of space is immediately evident as French doors give views through to the stunning Orangery dining room and sitting room beyond.
The flexibility offered by this array of rooms is very appealing, they can be made open plan for family gatherings or entertaining or offer individually a very spacious and formal living room, a cosy sitting room with its log burner and a formal or informal dining room. A glass vaulted roof and French doors out into the side garden flood the dining room with light and the Orangery together with the adjoining walk through sitting room extension with its muti fuel stove and full height picture windows are undoubtedly one of the highlight features of Folly Dyke. The well designed kitchen leading off the Orangery and also accessed from the hall overlooks the rear garden and patio area and is fitted with an integral oven, hob, extractor hood and dish washer. The utility room has access out to the side of the property and is plumbed for a washing machine and has space for a dryer. The hall has a WC and a convenient understair storage area and the impressive open staircase leads up to the first of the two upper floors. All three first floor double bedrooms have built in or fitted wardrobes with the Master also benefitting from an en suite and a spacious walk in wardrobe. The rear bedrooms have very nice views out to open fields and hills. The en suite and wetroom are appointed with quality fixtures including Karndean flooring, wall tiling and splashback panelling. Both the wetroom and the en suite have walk in showers, hand basin and WC.
A further staircase from the first floor landing leads to the second of the two floors which could provide ideal accommodation for teenagers either as a bedroom or sitting area. The second floor consists of a large landing area which leads into a very spacious room which has the added benefit of a further room which, although currently used for storage, has already been plumbed for an en suite should the new owner so desire.
Externally the garden has extensive gardens to the front and a secluded flagged patio and lawn area to the rear. The space underneath the elevated sitting room extension has cleverly been left open to provide storage for the logs required for the two multi fuel burners. Folly Dyke truly is a property that really must be seen to fully appreciate the setting, design, space and quality of the accommodation on offer. Early viewings recommended.
