- Stunning River Views
- Unique Design
This period property presents panoramic views across the River Tyne which include
Corbridge bridge and the countryside beyond. Originally two separate cottages, 11 &
13 Front Street offers a truly unique prospect, a north and a south cottage joined by
contemporary architecture. With a large atrium as hallway, the property taking up a
prominent and double fronted position in the centre of Corbridge, offers a rare
chance to occupy a both versatile and generous home which boasts five bedrooms
and multiple generous reception rooms, as well as period features and fine river
views, taken advantage of by three south-facing sun terraces.
Attached to the south section is a unique split-level design producing two reception
rooms and kitchen that utilise the fine river views. The upper floor offers the sun
terrace with the most superior view and the lower floor offers floor to ceiling glass
pulling the views inside.
