Here's a lovely country home with open views over glorious Northumberland countryside and a renovated interior that has retained period details such as an inglenook fireplace and deep window sills.

These now complement the modern touches and this blending has resulted in a beautifully presented and well-proportioned house with flexible accommodation.

A particular lovely feature of the property, in Newfield, close to Catton village, are the gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with pleasant seating areas, mature and well-stocked planting together with driveway parking sufficient for several cars, a garage, dog kennel and run and timber shed.

The house, for sale with no forward chain, has an entrance porch opening into a reception hall, a sitting room with views, an open-plan dining kitchen/family room with central island and attractive floor tiling and a ground-floor bedroom/snug.

Upstairs a spacious hall with a split landing has access to loft space and two recess storage cupboards.

There are three double bedrooms here, one at the front with superb views over open farmland and another with a walk-in wardrobe.

The master bedroom also has good views and an en-suite

The house in Newfield, Catton, is for sale at £385,000 from Rook Matthews Sayer, tel. 01434 601616.
