Welton Farm was originally part of the Allendale Estate, which dates back to 1862. It’s not far from the village of Newton and within easy commuting distance of Newcastle to the east and Corbridge and Hexham to the west. The original farmhouse has been extended and linked to neighbouring stone outbuildings, and has a host of period features including fireplaces, sash windows and shutters.
There are also contemporary touches which make the property an ideal family home – including the open plan, south-facing kitchen/dining/living room. In summer, the room can be opened up to the garden through the French doors, while in winter the wood-burning stove in the snug/sitting room keeps things cosy. The large cellar is one of the more unusual features of this property. Once used for cheese-making, it retains its original arched ceiling and stone shelving.
Internal features include: Hall, cellar, play room, drawing room, sitting room, kitchen/dining/living room with French doors to terrace, boot room, laundry room, four bedrooms, family bathroom, shower room, dressing room, airing cupboard.
External features include: Gated entrance, graveled parking, paved courtyard, front garden with fruit trees, south-facing garden with terrace, grass tennis court and borders, paddock, vegetable garden, range of outbuildings.
