A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase ‘Church House’ one of the finest properties in Stamfordham village. This incredible Grade two listed building dates back to the 1650’s and was once part of the Capheaton Estate. The property occupies an enviable position overlooking the village green and boasts beautifully maintained extensive gardens. The owners of Church House have carefully updated and extended the property during their ownership retaining as many original features as possible. The front door gives access to the hallway and the principal rooms of the ground floor. There is a wonderful open plan lounge with dining area and sitting room boasting French doors opening to the garden. Also on the ground floor is the supreme dual aspect music room benefitting from a striking inglenook fireplace and doors to the fabulous garden room with stone feature walls. Completing the ground floor is a magnificent breakfasting kitchen, a useful W.C and access to the cellar which has been converted into a workshop and study. Stairs lead to the first floor landing giving access to the comfortable master suite with en-suite facilities, an impressive family bathroom and generous second bedroom with vanity area. Stairs lead to the second floor which offers a further two double bedrooms with excellent views over the garden and countryside beyond. Externally the garden showcases the most incredible display of colourful flowering plants and shrubs. There is a generous lawn with a fascinating herbaceous border and archway to the secret garden with substantial vegetable plot and magnificent planted borders. There is lovely elevated patio for entertaining and a range of convenient outbuildings for storage. Stamfordham is a charming village steeped with local history yet a short drive from Ponteland and Newcastle upon Tyne. The primary school is rated outstanding by Ofsted and there is a popular pub ‘The Swinburne.’ A viewing is essential to fully appreciate this wonderful home. EPC exempt.
