An exceptional home, embracing the history and character of Old Stannington Station with a respectful and sympathetic conversion creating a two double bedroom apartment, this charming residence faultlessly adapts the original platform, ticket office and waiting room, delivering versatile living space and two well-appointed bedrooms, enhanced by a balance of the traditional alongside contemporary fittings, finished with a superb eye for detail. Designed by Benjamin Green, the building opened as Netherton Station March 1847, later renamed Stannington Station in 1892, closing in August 1964 before being reinvigorated as three self-contained residential properties. The layout of the apartment follows; entrance hallway, lounge, sun room/dining leading to the kitchen, which in turn joins the inner hallway and onwards to the master bedroom, second double bedroom and shower room suite. The outside space is an absolute credit to the current owners with private enclosed garden laid to lawn with well stocked planted borders and a patio sun terrace which wraps from the garden to the original station platform. Highlights include a focal point “Morso” wood burning stove to the lounge, exceptional bespoke fitted kitchen with striking composite counters and a host of integrated appliances, timber frame double glazed windows and gas central heating, plus a stylish shower room suite with step in shower enclosure with multi-function mains powered shower. The location rests a short drive to the Market Town of Morpeth, with excellent links across Northumberland and onward to The Coast, Newcastle City Centre & Newcastle Airport via the A1, the welcoming village environment is supported by a regular bus route, convenience store and a highly regarded café with a must visit shop offering a seasonal selection of local produce.
