The Property
Newton Fell Farmhouse represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a delightful Grade II Listed farmhouse with full planning permission to either extend the existing property or convert the traditional outbuildings into a separate four-bedroom dwelling. Occupying a truly picturesque position with far reaching views over the Tyne Valley, this sensational property offers all the attractions of rural life with the benefit of being conveniently located close to the popular village of Corbridge. The idyllic yet convenient location also provides excellent access to Hexham and Newcastle. Nestled in beautiful Northumberland countryside, the property comprises a stunning Grade II Listed late eighteenth-century farmhouse, several nineteenth-century outbuildings, stabling, garaging and approximately 12 acres of land. Around a further 12 acres of land are available for purchase via separate negotiation.

The farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and upgraded by the current owners to create an immensely warm and welcoming home. Charming period features such as exposed timber beams, inglenook fireplaces with wood burning stoves and timber sash windows seamlessly blend with a modern day feel to offer a fabulous period home with immaculately presented contemporary living spaces. The delightful country house kitchen sits central to the house and is fitted with a range of bespoke units and complementary granite worktops. Offering the perfect layout for socialising, there is ample space for dining and entertaining. From the kitchen, the inviting sitting room provides a relaxed day to day living space with dual aspect timber sash windows offering sensational views and flooding this welcoming room with natural light. An inglenook alcove adds to the charm and houses a substantial multi fuel stove. The second reception room is a beautifully considered space with open fire, immaculately presented décor and a door leading through to the study. The ground floor also offers a fantastic utility/boot room with incredibly useful storage space complete with contemporary bespoke cabinetry and granite work tops. A modern cloakroom with luxurious fixtures and fittings completes the downstairs accommodation. The first floor of the farmhouse is equally as appealing with a thoughtfully designed layout taking advantage of the superb aspect of the property and the beautiful décor enhancing its irresistible charm. The master bedroom provides the perfect place to enjoy the open views of the surrounding countryside and further benefits from an en-suite Jack and Jill bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, the majority of which benefit from splendid fitted wardrobes and all offer their own unique outlooks over the surrounding farmland. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom which is beautifully decorated and offers a bath and shower over, wash hand basin and WC.

Development Opportunity
Full planning permission has been secured for the conversion of a traditional gin gan and outbuildings into a contemporary four-bedroom house (Northumberland County Council Planning Reference No: 18/02744/FUL). The property will be configured to maximise the idyllic setting and stunning open views of the surrounding countryside. The four bedrooms and fabulous contemporary living space will be complemented by a luxuriously appointed kitchen/dining room in the converted gin gan.

Newton Fell Farm is approached via electric gates set in stone pillars leading to a long driveway that runs through the property’s land and around the outbuildings to arrive at the charming courtyard, where the immense character of the farmhouse becomes immediately apparent. Extensive garaging is provided in a triple bay stone built outbuilding, with a fourth bay used for storage. Attractive stabling is positioned within the courtyard, directly accessible from the house and offering four stone built stables with timber doors. In addition to the stabling, the traditional outbuildings also comprise a tack room and hay barn. Gardens extend to the front and side of the property and are mainly laid to lawn, with an orchard. 11.5 acres of land extends from a five bar gate conveniently situated within the courtyard, with around a further 12 acres available for purchase via separate negotiation.
