As you approach Avondale, attractive features are immediately evident in this characterful stone built home with turreted bay windows and imposing peak. From Station Road, a path leads through the colourful front garden area and to a traditional style wood panelled door which provides access into the entrance vestibule. In turn, a partially glazed internal door provides access into the central hallway which provides an insight into the traditional charm that continues throughout.
The first room on the left is the living room; rich in period features including deep skirting boards, attractive plaster work and picture rails. A large double glazed protruding bay window provides a lovely focal point with delightful views over rolling fields and green woodland beyond. A further window on the north face provides further natural light ensuring this room is beautifully bright with high ceilings adding to the spacious feel. A fireplace containing a mulit-fuel burner with a particularly attractive stone heart gives this room a homely and cosy feel, perfect for spending time as a family. Stunning oak flooring leads from the living room through predominately glazed double doors into the dining room.
This room is a great size and is well lit with two windows on either side of the protruding chimney breast, as well as French doors leading out to the patio. With views of the garden and mature tree backdrop, this is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the outlook. Period features are, again, evident throughout including a grand fireplace with Victorian tiles and granite hearth and mantle and a line of bells above the double doors. A full wall of contemporary bookshelves compliments the room beautifully and makes this a great quiet space.
In the central hallway, the area under the stairs is open and provides good storage space perfect for a family. From the hall, double doors lead through to the breakfast room which is in turn open to the modern kitchen. The breakfast room itself has ample space for a dining table and contains a lovely inglenook fireplace with tiled hearth complete with gas burner.
The breakfast room and kitchen are incredibly well lit via two large sliding sash windows as well as an additional uPVC window overlooking the patio which is conveniently positioned behind the double Belfast style sink which is set into a solid countertop. The kitchen has plenty of storage space in the firm of wall and floor cupboards. There is an integrated dishwasher, space for a fridge freezer and large five hob gas Range with extractor above.
Beyond the kitchen, through a partially glazed door, the attractive tiled floor continues into the boot room/ utility which offers additional countertop space with cupboards beneath, stainless streel sink and the Worcester Bosch combi boiler. French doors lead out on to the attractive patio which has Indian sandstone and concrete placings. The area is well lit and benefits from a pedestrian gate leading out on to the rear lane.
The final room on the ground floor is the shower room with two piece white suite and walk in shower complete with rainwater style fitment, there is also a ladder style chrome heated towel rail and uPVC window for natural light.
From the hallway, stairs with a half landing with attractive ornate newel post, lead to the first floor.
On the half landing lies the family bathroom which has a three piece white suite as well as shower over bath, north facing window, storage beneath the basin and a tiled area around both the bath and shower.
The principal bedroom is the first on the right hand side as you head further up the stairs. This room has dual aspect windows, both with a lovely green outlook, with one enjoying views over the rear garden. The room itself has deep skirting boards, picture rails and an array of fitted wardrobes providing plenty of storage space. To the rear of this bedroom is a room which contains plumbing for an en-suite making this potentially a perfect principal suite.
A further double bedroom lies to the front face of the property and therefore faces west. This room has a large bay with stunning views across countryside as well as an additional window allowing in even more natural light and views looking out towards Corbridge.
The final room on this floor is the third bedroom; this could be utilised as a nursery, as it is currently, or an office or bedroom. It shares views to the front across to the west with the previous bedroom and will benefit from evening sun.
Stairs from the landing lead to the second floor which has been recently refurbished to provide two good sized bedrooms. The first, which faces west, has the best views in the house. There is an inbuilt desk/ dressing table and a line of fitted wardrobes as well as storage into one of the eaves.
The rear bedroom on this floor is again of a decent size and has inbuilt storage and two Velux windows facing east which have a particularly green mature outlook.
To the front and west of the property lies a small decorative garden with seating area. It is predominantly flagged with various flower beds for added colour and personalisation. It is bordered by an attractive small stone wall.
Adjacent to the house at the rear lies a secluded patio area bordered by a stone wall offering privacy. It is partially flagged with Indian sandstone with the remainder suitable for a low maintenance patio that will enjoy good sun in morning and evening. There is external power on the side of the home and lighting mounted in various positions to ensure this area is usable into the evening.
Across a small back lane which only services a few houses, lies the main bulk of the gardens. This area is if a generous size would no doubt suit a family. It is predominately laid to lawn with various raised beds, storage areas, wood stores and, to the rear, there is an off street parking area with double wrought iron gates providing parking space for two cars.
