The sale of Stanton House offers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a wonderful family home with considerable appeal for lifestyle buyers, including those with an equestrian or livestock interest, given the wealth of accommodation on offer, generous garden grounds extending to some 31 acres, paddocks, 23 acres of productive grazing in three main fields and amenity woodland.  

Sitting centrally within the formal gardens and grounds, this five-bedroom traditional Northumberland country house dates back to 1851 and retains many period features. The house occupies an outstanding south facing position from which there are far reaching views towards the Tyne Valley, and it is also well placed for access to the popular Northumberland coast and its beaches.

Sam Gibson, handling the sale for Galbraith in Northumberland, said:

“This truly is an exceptional opportunity for interested buyers to purchase a beautiful period property in unspoilt countryside midway between the market town of Morpeth and the Northumberland National Park. Location wise it doesn’t get much better than this.

“Included in the sale is an extensive range of outbuildings offering the potential for a variety of uses subject to appropriate planning consent. The additional farm buildings serve the 31 acres of land which includes productive paddocks, meadows, amenity woodland and ponds, all lying within a ring fence to create this small private Estate.”

The main gardens lie to the south and east of the house and mainly comprise lawns with mature shrubs and trees. A timber pergola leads to iron estate perimeter fencing and there is an attractive water feature with stream and small pond adjacent to a timber framed summer house.

For those keen to grow their own, the vegetable garden includes a series of raised beds together with a modern glazed greenhouse and garden store.

A particular feature of the property is the wooded valley along the eastern boundary through which runs a stream feeding the wildlife pond in the woods. The woodland is a mixture of mature broadleaved trees together with younger well-established plantations.

Newcastle International Airport lies only 19 miles to the south and the main East Coast railway station is at Morpeth.

Stanton House, Stanton, Morpeth, Northumberland, is for sale as a whole through Galbraith at offers in excess of £1,300,000.
