Tucked away in a private one-acre plot on the outskirts of a popular Tyne Valley village, Southwood is an ideal family home which has been extensively extended and renovated to a high standard.

It has parquet flooring in the reception rooms, limestone tiling to kitchen and utility areas and underfloor heating keeping the sun lounge a cosy space from which to enjoy views over the large gardens.

A large games room on a mezzanine has Karndean flooring and there are four/five bedrooms and four bathrooms, meaning no queues for the shower in the morning.

Southwood has an entrance vestibule with wc and a main hall lit by two windows, with a built-in cloaks cupboard. The accommodation then divides with kitchen, breakfast room, utility, pantry, wc, rear hall and porch off to one side and an inner hall off to the other.

From this inner hall, doors lead to the spacious dining room and lounge, both with open feature fireplaces and sash windows.

The sitting room has double doors to the sun lounge and another door into the library which is also warmed by an open fire and has fitted bookshelves and a bay window.

At the other end of the house the kitchen has solid wall and floor units and a central island with granite worktops, a fitted oak dresser and a double Aga.

There is an additional oak dresser in the breakfast room, the utility is plumbed for white goods and the rear hall has back stairs and a pantry.

Upstairs are three en-suite bedrooms, a fourth double bedroom, another room currently used as a study and a Jack and Jill bathroom.
