Full Details

We are delighted to present this spectacular four bedroom detached stone-built cottage set in an incredibly private location on the outskirts of Alston. Having been recently renovated, and extended, to a high standard alongside its rural feel and incredible views, we are confident the property won't be on the market for long.

The characterful accommodation, dating back to 1611, briefly comprises: entrance porch leading to the impressive dining kitchen, two reception rooms, an inner hall to the rear with two further reception rooms, a downstairs bathroom, a utility room and laundry room. To the first floor, there are four generous bedrooms, one equipped with an ensuite, and the family bathroom.

Externally, residing on approximately two acres of land, the property features an exceptional garden which has undergone landscaping to include established plantings as well as various seating areas and garden features. There is a sizeable stone-built outbuilding in front of the property which could be used as a garage or further workshop and was previously a stable, as well as another outbuilding to the rear which could be used as a summerhouse.

Set on the outskirts of Alston, the property is situated five minutes away from Alston's town, which provides a range of amenities such as shops, cafes, local boutiques and pubs. The picturesque Alston is an ideal centre for those who enjoy walking, cycling or hiking through Alston Moor's heritage.

The property is absolutely ideal for a variety of buyers: the panoramic views and location could make for an excellent bed and breakfast, there is no better property out there for the keen golfers among us or it could just be perfect for those looking for a real rural retreat.

Viewings come highly recommended.
