3 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom 2 Reception rooms 1 Cloaks/WC 4 Miles Private parking and a garage Pretty lawned garden to the rear

Number 5 Bank House Farm is so quintessentially Northumbrian chocolate box, it’s almost edible, where every layer is lovelier than the last. The characterful qualities blend harmoniously with the contemporary style and all come wrapped in honeyed Northumbrian stone. Enveloping the walls of this Grade II listed cottage are pretty lawned gardens, countryside fields, big colourful skies and the deafening sound of rural silence. This charming and beautiful three bedroom, three storey stone built cottage seems as much a part of the landscape, as the trees growing in the fields.

The cottage lies within the picturesque hamlet of Guyzance, with the River Coquet flowing gently alongside the hamlet, creating a wonderful soundtrack to the more laid back lifestyle that you can have in this peaceful part of Northumberland.

5 Bank House Farm is set in amongst eleven other cottages at Bank House Farm, a farm conversion carried out sympathetically to retain lovely original features, provide private garden space and stone built garages.  Number 5 benefits from having two parking spaces directly outside of the property, along with the large single garage through the stone archway and one further parking space outside of the garage.

Please refer to the floor plan provided for individual room sizes and layout.

The property itself is accessed through a stable door which leads into the entrance hallway.

Entrance Hallway:

A handy space for hanging up coats and jackets after a stroll in the countryside.  With ceramic tiled flooring and access to the first floor.  A glazed door leads you into the kitchen/dining room.

A wonderfully bright and airy open plan kitchen and dining area/family room.  The kitchen is well equipped with stylish base and wall mounted units and has solid granite work surfaces. There is an integrated electric cooker and oven, dishwasher and double inset stainless steel sink.  There is plumbing and space for a washing machine and space for a large fridge/freezer.  A window to the rear overlooks the very pretty garden and countryside beyond.  Ceramic tiled flooring continues from the entrance hallway

Opposite the kitchen is the dining area/family room with large arched French doors leading out to the communal courtyard and allowing plenty of natural light to come flooding into the room.  The room has bundles of character with the exposed timber beams and some exposed stonework.  The room is perfect as a dining room as well as a snug area to relax in and cosy up on a squishy sofa whilst you’ve got dinner on the go.  A further door leads out to the rear garden.  Two designer radiators and a generous storage cupboard.

WC/Cloakroom:

With a white WC and white ceramic hand wash basin.  One CH radiator, extractor fan and ceramic tiled flooring.

A beautifully light and spacious room, which still has bundles of character with the exposed timber beams and also benefits from an electric stove fire within the original fireplace to keep you toasty warm all year round.  The windows to front and the rear allow plenty of natural light to flood in as well as providing a really lovely view. Original timber board flooring and one CH radiator.

Bedroom 3:

A pleasant double bedroom enjoying gorgeous views over the rear garden and the countryside. This bedroom also benefits from having the exposed timber beams too.  One CH radiator and fitted wardrobes to one wall.  Original timber board flooring.

Master Bedroom:

This is a spacious and welcoming double bedroom with a pretty aspect overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside. It’s bright and airy, exuding character and charm due to the original exposed beams. Sleep should come easily as you drift off with the soft sound of the birds singing and the sheep bleating and perhaps dream of times past. There is generous room for wardrobes and chest of drawers. Quality fitted carpet and one CH radiator.

Family Bathroom:

A fabulous and modern family bathroom, with a white three-piece suite including a large bath with a mains fed shower above, a ceramic hand wash basin with vanity unit and a WC.  Ceramic tiled flooring, fully tiled walls, chrome ladder style towel radiator, a window to the front of the property as well as a Velux window for extra light.  The exposed timber beams make a lovely feature to the bathroom too.

What’s outside 5 Bank House Farm?

Outside on the beautifully maintained lawned garden, the silence is blissfully deafening.  There is a generous sized garden to the rear to sit out in, either soaking up the sun, or enjoy an evening sundowner whilst watching the changing colours of the sky as the sun sets.  Pretty flower beds and shrubs in the garden create a sense of privacy and attract an abundance of bees, butterflies and birds – the perfect countryside setting to admire.  The garden can be directly accessed from the kitchen/dining room and so it’s the perfect opportunity to appreciate some alfresco dining on the gravelled area of the garden.

To the front of the property there is a communal courtyard with two allocated car parking spaces in front of the cottage.  A stone archway leads through to where the stone built, large single garage is, with a Hemmel style stone arch around the solid timber doors.  The garage benefits from having power and lighting.

What Propology love about 5 Bank House Farm and Guyzance:

We love the way that this cottage ensures the past meets the present so harmoniously.  The cottage has been beautifully modernised by the current owners and yet the property still retains all the charm and character in the world with the exposed timber beams and original wooden floors.  We really do love how country chic this cottage is and the location ticks a box for us too.

The charming village of Guyzance is only a couple of miles from the A1 enabling easy commuting North and South, and the mainline railway station at Alnmouth is only four miles away. The lovely market town of Alnwick and its world renowned Castle and Gardens, is just eight miles away and offers a range of amenities including supermarkets, schooling for first, second and third tier education, infirmary and general practice, dentists, restaurants, leisure centre as well as several independent retailers.
