The Granary is 2160 sq ft 3/4 bedroom, luxurious and exquisitely designed two storey barn conversion in the heart of the Northumberland countryside, just 6 miles north from the market town of Morpeth. Being one of only six properties in a private farm steading, just off a country lane in the charming village of Ulgham, this home is a place to enjoy peace and tranquility, uninterrupted views of wild and beautiful surroundings. We love the time-worn beauty of the barn’s elegant brick walls, traditional pan tile roof, stone flagged flooring, and period details. The Granary is a property that won’t fail to impress even the most discerning of buyers. The rustic exterior architecture punctuates the countryside, giving a picture of rural history and tradition, blending harmoniously with the contemporary touches found throughout this home. The exceptional quality of the conversion and attention to detail combined with the beautiful interior styling of this country chic bolt-hole makes for the ultimate escape to the country.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with flexible living space to the ground floor and a fantastic home office/annexe to the side of the property.

What Propology love about The Granary
We absolutely love this luxury barn conversion from the way it has been sympathetically converted using high quality natural materials to the stunning rural views of the surrounding countryside. There is a wonderful flow in this home and the contemporary finishes add to the luxurious feel. The stunning bespoke kitchen is truly something to admire and we love the spa-style bathrooms too! The beautifully landscaped garden is somewhere we would love to sit out in whilst enjoying the picturesque views, and with the westerly aspect you’ll be able to admire the sunsets in peace and quiet with just the sounds of the evening wildlife in the distance. This is a property to make your home and create lifelong memories with family and friends.
The location of The Granary puts a huge tick in the location box being just 6 miles away from the market town of Morpeth where you will find a large variety of shops, transport and amenities. You are able to access the A1 easily from this property, which makes it incredibly useful for commuting to Newcastle, and the iconic heritage coastline with its wide variety of unspoilt beaches.
