Southwitton House

An impressive example of a Grade II listed Northumbrian farmhouse, Southwitton offers fantastic entertaining space and multi-generational living in a semi-rural position.

Through the rear door, you enter in to the spacious boot room with utility and laundry room off to the right and access through to the kitchen on the left. The 37ft kitchen dining room is a room designed with family in mind. The large breakfast island and dining space, with the addition of the adjoining family room, create a fantastic space for entertaining.

The two further receptions rooms are currently used as a formal sitting room and office, both of which benefit from a log burner. From the sitting room, a door leads into the self-contained annexe comprising of an open-plan kitchen/sitting room and a double bedroom with en-suite shower room.

On the first floor the master bedroom, with large en-suite, boasts built-in wardrobes, spectacular views across the paddocks and a feature fireplace. A further four bedrooms all benefit from built-in wardrobes and are serviced by two bathrooms.

The Granary

The cottages offer a fantastic potential additional income as, until recent years, both The Granary and The Byre were let as very successful holiday cottages. They are currently being used for staff accommodation.

The Granary comprises of an entrance hallway with downstairs wc, open plan sitting room/kitchen with an electric fire and a door leading out onto the lawn with views across the paddocks. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both of which have en-suite bathrooms.

The Byre

The Byre, the larger of the two cottages, is full of character with exposed beams and a log burner. Natural light floods in through the original byre doorways which have been converted to windows and the mezzanine level above the kitchen offers additional bedroom or office space.

The property is entered via the boot room and utility which leads down the hallway through to the open plan sitting room/kitchen. There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Equestrian Facilities

The extensive equestrian facilities at Southwitton House provide an impressive base for both the professional and hobby rider.

The main stable yard comprises of 9 timber stables, a large tack room, rug room, feed room and grooming/wash down bay. The stable yard is covered with plenty of hard standing outside the stables for storage. There are a further 5 large internal stables in a barn adjacent to the indoor school. The impressive 20 x 60m indoor school benefits from mirrors on three sides and lights with a waxed surface provided by Equestrian Surfaces.

The paddocks at Southwitton House have been beautifully managed and are well fenced with hardcore in the gateways. There is excellent hacking from the property with the added bonus of a grass track around the perimeter of the paddocks for a peaceful cool down after riding in the school. There is plenty of parking for horseboxes and trailers on the gravel driveway and turning area. The land, in total, exceeds 23 acres.

The equestrian facilities could also be an excellent opportunity for an additional income stream. * Council tax band: G
