Elishaw Farmhouse is a fine example of a traditional 19th century property, constructed of stone under a slate roof. Inside, the dining room leads to a spacious and comfortable sitting room with an open fireplace in a finely carved timber surround; the family room, also with an open fire, provides further space to relax. The kitchen leads to the useful storage area provided by the pantry and a further cloaks cupboard in the rear entrance lobby.
Upstairs the house offers three spacious double bedrooms, all offering exceptional views over the valley, while a further bedroom is currently used as a spacious study; the family bathroom is also on this floor.
Outside, two single storey holiday cottages have been created from former farm buildings, each of which offers a large living room/kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. They surround an adjoining gravelled courtyard, with a two storey stone building facing the cottages, which presents an ideal opportunity to create further accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
Redesdale, on the fringe of the Northumberland National Park, offers some of the county’s most dramatic scenery and recreational opportunities coupled with excellent accessibility to Newcastle, (approximately 32 miles). The nearby village of Otterburn has a useful range of local shopping, pubs and hotels.
A private garden surrounds the farmhouse while an orchard area provides useful recreation space for holiday tenants. A field of approximately eight acres slopes away from the house and steading towards the River Rede, upon which the owner has fishing rights.
The guide price is £650,000. For further information please contact Strutt and Parker on 01670 516 123 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
