Standwell is set amidst open and unspoilt countryside to the north of the hamlet of Harlow Hill and is midway between the market town of Hexham and Newcastle railway station.
Sam Gibson, handling the sale for Galbraith in Hexham, said: “The combination of the accessible location and the quality of the principal house, together with the farming and other income generating opportunities, make Standwell a very attractive proposition.
“The sale of this property offers an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a mixed farm and livery enterprise in a very scenic part of Northumberland.”
The attractive traditional stone farmhouse has five well-proportioned reception rooms, mainly south-facing, and eight bedrooms. The property is beautifully presented throughout. The stunning reception hall sets the scene for the rest of the house with its attractive fireplace, wood burning stove and polished wooden floor. The kitchen has a good range of fitted cabinetry, integrated appliances and plenty of space for informal dining. The conservatory is a wonderful, light-filled room for entertaining while the dining room, sitting room and drawing room, currently used as a multimedia cinema room, are equally attractive. Also on the ground floor are a utility room, pantry, laundry room and a large cloakroom. There are five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shower room and additional cloakroom on the first floor and three further loft-rooms on the third floor, currently used as bedrooms.
Included in the sale are three well-maintained cottages, each having been previously let to tenants with good potential to continue to generate an income stream.
The farming arrangement is based on approximately 142 acres under arable production, together with 68 acres of productive permanent pasture. Amenity and sporting value is enhanced by established woodland blocks, a snipe bog and pond. There is also a livery yard and outdoor arena.
The excellent range of traditional and modern farm buildings provide commercial storage in addition to the existing livery enterprise, whilst the extensive range of farm buildings between the cottage and the main house offer potential for further residential development, subject to planning consent.
The pretty, small town of Corbridge is 6 miles to the south of Standwell. The farm is also very accessible, being only 8 miles from the A1 and 10 miles from Newcastle International Airport. Standwell is well situated for Northumberland National Park and Kielder Forest and is only a few hundred yards north of Hadrian’s Wall.
Standwell is for sale through Galbraith for a guide price of £4,500,000.
