With high quality as standard and a contemporary finish, Holly Brook offers three floors of fabulous accommodation.

This stunning home, in an exclusive Tyne Valley development, has been created from the conversion of period stone-built barns and is set in magnificent landscaped gardens.

The site, which stretches to almost three acres, includes a lawn, barbecue area, vegetable patch, sun terrace, grazing and ample parking on a gravelled driveway.

Holly Brook has the benefit of a self-contained home office, shower room and utility room located in the former double garage.

The front door of the house opens into an entrance hallway where an arch on the left leads through to a large kitchen dining living space with high ceiling beams and a tiled floor.

Spotlights and an arched window illuminate light-coloured cabinets with dark worktops, a central island and range-style cooker in a feature brick recess and double doors open to a rear terrace.

A second arch leads from the hallway through to an impressive reception room warmed by a log burner and also with doors to the terrace.

On the right of the hallway is a study which could serve as a television room or snug.

An en-suite double bedroom, wc, storage and utility complete the ground floor.

Upstairs are four more double bedrooms over two floors. The master suite is on the first floor and has a dressing room and en-suite shower room.

The second bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and the family bathroom boats a large freestanding bath and spacious shower.

On the top floor are the remaining two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and a shower room.

This well-designed family home has character and rural charm.
