A fabulous, delightfully quirky and beautifully presented property with superb, far-reaching views over the Cheviot Hills and the rivers Whiteadder and Blackadder.
Delightfully quirky and beautifully presented
The overall feel is very much of a unique home that has evolved over the years bursting with character and interesting pieces at every turn. Original artwork, unusual objets d’art and pieces collected on the owners’ travels grace the rooms including an impressive collection of spheres which appear in many guises throughout the house. Attractive antique furniture sits alongside bespoke contemporary pieces, bold rugs and cosy plaid throws.
There is ample space for families and large groups with a huge, light-filled open plan living area, a pretty breakfast room, a cosy snug and a TV room / playroom.
There is plenty of wet weather entertainment with two TV rooms, a piano and sheet music for budding musicians, a state-of-the-art sound system in the main living area, a PlayStation 2 and an extensive DVD library, books and board games.
The individually-styled bedrooms – two king, one twin and two single - are beautifully presented in muted, restful tones with splashes of colour from pretty fabrics, cosy tweed blankets, eye-catching original artwork and delightful quirky touches such as the original French railway signs rescued during the war.
