What Propology love about Featherdown

In our eyes Featherdown really does have the ‘wow’ factor. This home is really unique and quirky. We love the exquisitely bespoke designed hand painted kitchen to the luxury spa-like bathrooms, the spectacular countryside views and all the modern appliances you could need, this property ticks all the boxes. We absolutely love the huge reception room with the amazing fireplace and the windows that allow huge amounts of natural light to flow through this barn. The exposed A-frame beams and stone arch add character and charm. The free standing log burner is a statement piece in itself and really adds to the wonderful contemporary feel to the property.

We love the gorgeous rural location and the uninterrupted views. Close to the small village of Acklington with a church, pub and restaurant and its bijoux First School. There are many activities and groups held locally, and a real sense of community. Warkworth is a near neighbour where the main street is lined with galleries, a Post Office, inns, restaurants and gift shops to suit all tastes. This really is an ideal location.
