Constructed by well-regarded local developer County Life, this stylish and contemporary family home channels the spirit of the great Victorian housebuilding era.

It has been sensitively and thoughtfully designed, using traditional stone, incorporating bay windows, natural slate roofs and lead clad dormers, referencing the existing 1800s streetscape in this sought-after location in Hexham’s West End.

The property was built in 2012 to a very high standard and with a huge amount of detail, making it efficient and economical to run.

It has bright, spacious and flexible accommodation over four floors including a superb open-plan dining kitchen, high-quality fixtures and fittings, oak flooring and contemporary balconies with views out over Cockshaw Burn towards the Sele.

This property really does offer the best of both worlds - a traditionally styled house with all the advantages and comforts of a well-appointed contemporary home.
