Middleburn Farm is a traditional Northumbrian stone-built farmhouse situated in the Northumberland National Park amidst glorious rolling countryside. The property benefits from an adjoining steading which offers potential for conversion to extend the house or to create holiday accommodation and provide an income stream, subject to all the necessary planning consents. Middleburn Farm sits in an elevated position and enjoys far-reaching, panoramic views over the surrounding garden, pasture land and woodland which amounts to around 74.2 acres.
Internally, an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor leads into the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of units, sink and double drainer, solid fuel range cooker set in an inglenook, terracotta tiled floor and window overlooking the front garden. Off the kitchen there is a spacious utility room which has a window to the rear. An inner hall gives access to two dual-aspect reception rooms both of which have tiled floors and offer flexible living spaces with glorious views over the land and countryside beyond. These rooms are currently used as a drawing room and everyday sitting room but could equally offer a formal dining room if desired. The sitting room benefits from a wood-burning stove while the drawing room has a period fireplace and a large under-stairs storage cupboard. A recently-fitted shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor there are four double bedrooms accessed from two staircases; two of the bedrooms have a connecting door to enable full access to the first floor from one staircase if required. All bedrooms enjoy stunning elevated views and two have period fireplaces. The bedrooms are served by a bathroom with stripped wood floor and fitted with a bath, wash hand basin and WC.
Middleburn Farm is approached along a private drive which leads to a parking and turning area in front of the house and attached steading buildings. The garden lies to the front and side of the house, is mainly laid to lawn and offers stunning open rural views.
The attached steading buildings, which benefits from light and power, currently offer three stables, a barn, a hay barn and stores and offer enormous potential for conversion subject to the necessary planning consents. To the rear of the steading there is a large corrugated hay barn and steel framed shed.
The surrounding land, which amounts to around 73.3 acres and comprises pasture and some woodland areas is divided into a number of enclosures. The land is naturally watered by Whitelee Cleugh and several natural streams.
