Summerville is a substantial six bedroom detached residence, set in approximately 3.2 acres of land with magnificent countryside views. This stone built property dates back to 1840 and would make a wonderful family home.
The approach to the property is through double wrought iron gates to a generous driveway with gravelled path that leads around to an elevated Portico grand front entrance with panoramic views across the valley and beyond to the Cheviots. The property offers a wealth of notable period features including decorative wood and marble fireplaces, ornate plasterwork ceiling roses and cornicing, deep skirting boards and a turned spindle staircase. The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance Portico, dual aspect sitting room, drawing room, kitchen with an Aga, breakfast room, downstairs W.C., boiler room, study, and a spacious conservatory. To the first floor there are six double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. Externally there are extensive gardens with various patio areas, an area of woodland, summerhouse with views of the ponds, tennis court, car port, large garage, and old stables. The property benefits from several outbuildings including a large workshop which could be used for a range of purposes, and outbuildings with their own garden located across the road that are currently used for wood storage but could potentially be converted in the future.
