A substantial and beautifully updated country house with annexe, additional cottage and landscaped gardens

Here we take a peek through the keyhole.

Occupying a picturesque position on the outskirts of Newcastle, East Byermoor Cottage comprises a beautifully renovated farmhouse with a two bedroom annexe and another two bedroom cottage. The house and cottages are situated in grounds extending to around 1.35 acres in all, and enjoy views over the Derwent Valley and National Trust Gibside Estate.

The fabulous stone farmhouse dates back to the 17th century and was once part of the Gibside Estate. Today the property stands as a spacious four bedroom home offering modern living space. The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and dining room, which also flows through into the family room. The bespoke kitchen has a contemporary country house atmosphere, with elegant styling and a high specification, all created by the Newcastle Kitchen & Bedroom Company.

The dining area has plenty of space for a large table and chairs. The timber and glass staircase rises between the kitchen and dining areas, defining the space and also creating a real feature. The spacious and relaxing family room overlooks the gardens, with a woodburning stove. The kitchen is complemented by a huge utility/laundry room, a walk-in larder and a boot room.
