Fenham Le Moor, Northumberland

Approached from a country lane off the A1 Smithy Cottage is one of a small number of attractive dwellings in the vicinity of Fenham Le Moor farm.
A long sweeping gravel driveway leads to the front of the property opposite which is a stone building converted into two studios by our client who is a local artist.
Entrance into Smithy Cottage is through a porch into a large open hall area which our clients currently use a dining room. The hall leads on into the conservatory which looks out over the glorious rear gardens and patio areas. During the winter months when the trees have shed their leaves our clients inform us that magical views can be seen across Holy Island causeway and out to Lindisfarne Castle.
From the hallway one enters the cottage style kitchen with the outstanding feature being the Aga stove located in an alcove under a very impressive stone lintel. The kitchen is of a good size and, as can be seen from the photographs, has ample space for a breakfast table and free standing kitchen furniture.
There is a range of wall and floor units with granite effect worktops and integrated fridge & dishwasher.
Off the kitchen there is a utility room with sink and floor units, a storage cupboard and the oil fired boiler.
An archway leads through into the fabulous spacious, bright and airy living room which is flooded with light from the patio doors and windows which look out over the rear garden.
Featuring a multi fuel burner this is truly a wonderful room with a multitude of layout options and the new owners could, for example, make this an open plan living and dining area.
Off the porch are the two very nicely presented double en suite bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and the family bathroom.
The new owners may consider turning the hall into a third bedroom simply by erecting a stud wall which would also have the benefit of enclosing the family bathroom within the new room.
Without a doubt the expansive rear garden is the outstanding feature of this beautiful stone cottage.
Extending to circa one third of an acre the garden has a delightful mix of patio and sitting areas, mature shrubs and flower beds and a wild area which attracts a multitude of birds and wildlife.
The area to the front of the property is another wonderful place to sit and relax with place for a table and chairs and a barbeque in addition to ample parking place for several cars.
The detached stone building in the driveway has been converted into two studios by our client who is a local artist. Both studios have skylights, electric points and electric panel heaters. These studios could make an ideal home office, games or playrooms should the new owner so desire.
