Remote Off-Grid Cottage in Picturesque Northumberland

Leading property consultancy Galbraith has recently launched a period off-grid cottage in a peaceful and pretty rural Northumberland location that is sure to attract interest from those seeking tranquillity and a change of pace of life.

Haughton Pasture Cottage is located a skip and a hop from the Roman Wall in stunning countryside and requires complete repair and modernisation, including the installation of mains services and vehicular access.

 

The cottage has exposed stone walls and the remains of original stone fireplaces, providing attractive original features for any renovation to be focused around. There is currently a well-proportioned reception room and a timber-framed garden room, as well as a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.  This bijou property can be extended (subject to all the necessary consents) as part of permitted development rights.

 

Sam Gibson, head of residential agency at Galbraith, Hexham, said: “Haughton Pasture Cottage is perhaps the antidote to the post Covid era - a charming period cottage, located off-grid in a wonderfully isolated and peaceful countryside setting.

 

“For the right buyer, this property represents the best opportunity to truly get away from it all and create a delightful rural escape. It could be extended or the layout reconfigured, subject to appropriate planning consent and depending on the buyer’s requirements. It also presents an exciting holiday let business as an alternative investment opportunity.”

 

Standing in an enviable and elevated position set far back from the highway, Haughton Pasture Cottage makes the most of the commanding views across the gardens and the rolling countryside beyond. Within the grounds there is a walled garden to rear, as well as a stone-built outbuilding providing useful storage space.
