Anwoth, built in 1906, is a charming and individual detached Edwardian house, situated in a desirable location in the market town of Hexham. The property retains a host of charm and character throughout and has been sympathetically renovated to offer bright, spacious and flexible accommodation with high quality fixtures and fittings whilst retaining an abundance of period features, including fireplaces, panelled doors, picture rails, ceiling roses, cornicing, door architrave, deep skirting and multi-pane sash windows.
An attractive porch with tiled roof and timber painted lattice work is a decorative feature, drawing the eye to the main entrance of the house. A double wooden door opens to the entrance vestibule with half glazed wooden door and side glazed windows, leading to the main reception hallway with attractive parquet flooring, access to all downstairs accommodation and stairs to the first floor.
The dining room, ideal for formal entertaining, features a square bay window with decorative panelling to the front elevation, along with windows to the side, exposed wooden floorboards and an arched recess houses a working fire with tiled insert and hearth with an ornate wooden surround.
The sitting room is a bright and spacious room with a square bay window to the side elevation, with integral French doors which lead to the terrace and side garden. The room benefits from parquet flooring with decorative edging, working fireplace with iron grate, tiled insert and hearth with wooden fire surround and mirrored mantle.
The kitchen and family room sit to the rear of the property with oak flooring throughout and an extensive range of cream floor and wall units and glazed display cabinetry with contemporary fixtures and fittings and complementary granite work surfaces. Integral appliances include a 1½ bowl sink, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, two ring ceramic hob and an electric oven. There is an island in the centre of the kitchen with complementary oak work surface and a four oven Aga separates the kitchen from the family room. The family room offers double aspect, space for a table and chairs and an additional sink with granite work surface, floor and wall cupboards and integrated washing machine and tumble dryer. A door gives access to the rear garden via stone steps.
The study with multi-pane double sash windows is to the front elevation and features a working fire with cast iron grate, tiled insert and hearth and attractive wood surround and oak flooring. Access to a further reception room, currently used as a playroom, is from the study; another room of generous size with oak flooring, triple aspect and separate access to the front of the property. Off the reception hallway is a downstairs cloakroom and WC with half panelled walls and quarry tiles to the floor, pedestal wash-hand basin and separate storage cupboard.
A wide, spindled staircase leads to the half-landing which is flooded with natural light from the leaded glass picture window. The family bathroom is also on this level and comprises bath, walk-in shower, pedestal wash-hand basin, heated towel rails, bidet and WC. The walls are part-tiled and there is a useful storage cupboard which also houses the water tank. A separate WC completes the accommodation on this level.
The galleried landing leads to the master bedroom suite, a beautifully bright and spacious room with Oriel bay window with window seats and elevated garden views to the front, with further window aspect to the side elevation, along with working fireplace with iron grate, tiled insert and hearth with wooden fire surround and attractive mantle. The en-suite comprises walk-in shower, pedestal wash-hand basin, heated towel rail and WC with tiling to the walls and floor.
There are three further double bedrooms, which are full of character and charm, two to the rear elevation, with views to the side and rear aspect, one with a working fire, tiled insert, hearth and surround and a further bedroom to the front.
Access from the upper landing leads to two further bedrooms of generous size; both with working fires and one with fitted storage. These bedrooms are served by a bathroom with free-standing double ended bath with claw feet, walk-in shower, twin pedestal wash-hand basins and WC along with a working fire and floor tiling.
The basement, with the necessary consents and some re-configuration, would make an excellent opportunity as an annex or additional ancillary space. The current owners have partially renovated, and the principal rooms have already been plastered and have power, light and central heating. There is independent access to the outside space.
Integrated storage and the boiler room can be accessed from the drive to the side of the property and beneath the rear steps.
The entrance to the property is through double electric gates which lead to a gravelled parking area for several cars at the front and side of the property. The detached garage is situated beyond the entrance drive at the bottom of the garden and has a remote roller door and benefits from power and light.
The enclosed gardens surround the house with lawn, mature shrubs, trees and flower beds and terraced areas; a low maintenance front garden with low boundary wall leads through to the side garden.
The garden to the side of the property is mainly laid to lawn and includes a large sun terrace and seating area to enjoy the peaceful and secluded garden setting. Steps lead down to the low level rear garden which offers a substantial greenhouse, raised vegetable beds and mature plantings. The garden includes an attractive water feature and pond, further lawned areas and raised beds, and is divided by gravel paths that leads to the main outdoor patio, ideally placed for outdoor entertaining. The patio is covered by a pergola and has an additional preparation area with built in bbq and wood storage.
