Brunton House is a very handsome country house of great character with a commanding view of the Tyne Valley. The property is built of pretty, local, honey-coloured stone and has been recently refurbished.
Inside lots of period features remain, including elegant plasterwork, fireplaces, and stone and wooden floors while the accommodation flows beautifully throughout the house, ending with the large kitchen/breakfast room which overlooks the garden.
The reception rooms are well-proportioned and have beautiful, tall bay windows; they are perfect for entertaining. The conservatory sits off the dining room, and also overlooks the garden.
Domestic rooms include a playroom, a gun room, and a boot room with a separate annexe. The cellar is located below the hall.
The first floor has an impressive full-length central landing, off which are six very good bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, and a further family bathroom.
The annexe is attached to the east end of the main house and can be accessed from inside and outside. It offers two sitting rooms and three double bedrooms (two of which are en-suite), plus a family bathroom.
Outside the gardens are mostly laid to lawn and there is a former grass tennis court and an orchard below. Mature woodlands surround the house.
The property comes with nearly ten acres of land and is located in the heart of the North Tyne Valley very close to Hadrian’s Wall. Hexham is just over five miles, while Newcastle is 24 miles for trains to Edinburgh and London.
The guide price is £1.5m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 0191 686 1232 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
