A fantastic opportunity has arisen to the market to acquire this stunning eleven bedroom detached house, ideally positioned within the beautifully rural area of Scots Gap, near Morpeth. Built in 1844, this freehold property also comes with a three bedroom detached cottage, a two bedroom self contained West wing apartment, fully refurbished in 2017 and finally, a 5,000sqft rear courtyard with stables, coach house, workshop, kennels, gunroom and log store.
This beautiful property also showcases upgraded roof insulation as well as benefitting from the original timber sash windows. Having originally been part of the Wallington Estate, this Hall includes a diverse range of heritage features including Italian marble fireplaces from the mid 1700's, intricate solid mahogany and oak architraves and an imposing and incredibly impressive Brazilian mahogany staircase to both main floors.
The property begins with a grand welcoming hallway, leading onto the substantial reception hall that provides access to all the principal rooms of the ground floor. The ground floor itself is comprised of a sizable living room, benefitting from a bay window, for wonderful views of the surrounding land. There is also a beautifully presented dining room, and sitting room. To the rear of the ground floor there is a recently fitted dining kitchen area, offering contemporary design throughout and fitted wall, base and drawer units. There is also a downstairs WC and separate shower room, two utility rooms, as well as a boiler room providing access to the exterior of the property. To the first floor of the property there are seven generously sized bedrooms, one of which benefits from a bay window and five of which offer fitted storage space. There are also two individual family bathrooms. To the second floor of the property there is the extensively sized master bedrooms, along with two other substantial bedrooms with a family bathroom also.
The external space is equally impressive. The Hall sits within a completely private estate of 22 acres, with two main entrances to the West and South of the Hall. The Southern entrance was reinstated by the current owner and offers a 700m private driveway giving an impressive sense of arrival and glimpses of the Hall and outbuildings as you approach. The original stables have been extended significantly to provide a 20-stall livery yard, multiple paddocks and large 17-acre main grazing field; along with a 35 x 20m arena, which had been a tennis court until the late 1980s.
Morpeth is an enviable Northumberland town positioned on the River Wansbeck. The village is a picturesque town with good nearby schooling, transportation links and a wide range of amenities including shops and restaurants.
