Traditional Northumberland farmhouse for sale

Haining Rigg is a traditional farmhouse with an adjoining steading which offers great potential and versatility. With original timber-framed sliding sash windows, heavy painted doors and original open fireplaces it retains lots of the charm of a traditional farmhouse in the area.

Providing generous accommodation it’s also a perfect family house with a breakfast kitchen (with four oven Aga) and two pantries, drawing room with an open fire in a marble surround and dining room with fantastic views. Upstairs are three good-sized bedrooms, all offering magnificent views through sash windows. The large family bathroom has a rolltop bath.

The farmhouse also comes with an adjoining two-storey barn which has potential to expand from the original house, or for separate living accommodation (planning permission was granted for this extension in 2005 but has now expired).
