About this property

  • The sale of Standwell offers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a compact residential estate in an outstanding yet accessible location on the north side of the Tyne Valley. For residential buyers there is an attractive and well positioned family house with well proportioned south facing reception rooms, 5 first floor bedrooms and 3 additional attic rooms. There are three cottages and potential for conversion of the traditional buildings. There is a large range of farm buildings providing commercial storage opportunities in addition to a livery enterprise. The land lies within a ring fence and has good field access. There is currently approximately 41 acres under arable production, together with 32 acres of productive permanent pasture.

    In our opinion it is a combination of the accessible location and quality of the principal house together with the land, buildings and other income generating opportunities which makes Standwell such a rare property.

    Location and Situation
    The farm lies in open and unspoilt countryside to the north side of the Military Road and the hamlet of Harlow Hill. The B6318 leads to Heddon-on-the-Wall where the A69 is joined. The property lies midway (12 miles) between the market town of Hexham and Newcastle railway station. The pretty, small town of Corbridge lies only 6 miles to the south. The farm is only 8 miles from the A1 and 10 miles from Newcastle International Airport providing excellent access to the main communications network. The farm is also well situated for gaining access to the Northumberland National Park and Kielder Forest and is only a few hundred yards north of Hadrians Wall.

    The farmhouse which is of attractive local stone construction under a slate roof provides high quality family accommodation extending to approximately 5500 sq ft. The accommodation which is shown on the floor plan includes well proportioned and mainly south facing main reception rooms and bedrooms. There are high ceilings, featuring cornicing, attractive fireplaces some with wood burning stoves, partial double glazing and some secondary glazing.

    Ground Floor: Reception hall with attractive fireplace, wood burning stove and polished wooden floor leads into a drawing
    room with fine carved fire surround, display alcove and polished wood floor. Two further reception rooms include the dining room and sitting room both of which have feature fire places. The farmhouse kitchen has a fitted range of modern matching units and storage cupboards with access through to the mainly timber and glazed conservatory with dining table and slate floors. A utility room with Belfast sink and timber worktop leads to the back door as well as to two larders and a laundry room. Off the staircase hall is a cloakroom and separate WC. The staircase leads up past a double glazed picture window to the first floor landing.

    On the First Floor: Bedroom 1 is the master bedroom with range of built in wardrobes and ensuite shower room. There are four further good sized double bedrooms, two house bathrooms and an en-suite WC on the first floor. The staircase
    continues up to the second floor.

    Second floor: Three good sized loft rooms currently used as
    three further bedrooms.

    Outside stone gate posts lead to the raised gravel parking and turning area in front of the house from which steps lead to lawned gardens on two sides.

    Farm Buildings
    There is an extensive range of farm buildings including barns and stores of traditional stone construction in between the cottage and the main house which offer potential for further residential development subject to obtaining planning consent. The laundry room from the farmhouse leads into two large tack rooms beyond which are stores, workshop and garages extending in all to about 5,000 square feet of opportunity.

    The main farm building range has been developed from a former intensive poultry unit now providing storage for the farm, commercial storage and the equestrian enterprise.
