**WITH LAND**. Delightful and tastefully decorated family house with a plot size of approximately 7.79 acres including large gardens, drive, garage, stabling, pole barn and grazing land. Located on the edge of a popular village with truly outstanding views for miles on end. EPC (EER) D 56.


Raburn lies on the western edge of the village on Physic Lane which is a great gateway to the moors for walking, horse

riding and cycling. It occupies an elevated position which creates what is one of the best views in Northumberland.

The village of Thropton is a busy and popular place. It has a First School, two churches and two pubs. Thropton lies

within the Northumberland National Park, the perfect place to get away from it all, and giving access to some of the most

spectacular countryside with breathtaking views, a mixture of hills and dales, clear streams, dark skies and rich wildlife.

Raburn is only 1.5 miles from the traditional market town of Rothbury which is particularly well served with a Middle

School, doctor's surgery, dentist, butcher, bakers, delicatessen, hardware store, veterinary practice and a local supermarket

as well as pubs, hotel and a range of guest houses. Lying on the River Coquet, it is popular with tourists all year round

and hosts several traditional music festivals and food and craft fairs throughout the year and the famous National Trust

Cragside Estate. The property is in the catchment area for King Edward VI High School in Morpeth. There are endless

opportunities for walking, cycling or trekking in the Cheviot and Simonside Hills. The historic town of Alnwick is only

13.5 miles and offers a wider range of facilities including the famous Castle and Gardens. Alnmouth railway station on the

main east coast line lies 17 miles to the east. Newcastle International Airport (36 miles) provides a good selection of regular scheduled flights within the UK and overseas.


Raburn is a delightful family house which has been extended and refurbished, fit for modern living. The recent works have

included rewiring, double glazing throughout, a new boiler with solar water heater, increased insulation and a wonderful

new extension which has added an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, which opens out to a south facing deck, and a

large double bedroom above. The extension has been very cleverly designed by a local architect who has made the most of the sloping site and available sunlight. The three levels of accommodation link beautifully creating space which is much

greater than it first appears.


The front door opens into an entrance lobby and then into the original hall with oak parquet flooring, large cloakroom off

and a utility room with sink, plumbed for a washing machine and fitted cupboards. There is a door to the stone flagged

patio too. The other main rooms on this floor are the sitting room with a south facing bay window and wood burning stove

and the study which also doubles as the fifth bedroom.


Stairs lead up to the new bedroom, with large walk-in cupboards, a shower room and then up again to the three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.


Stairs lead down to a WC and the new kitchen/dining room with a sunny sitting area and door to the deck, an electric Aga

with adjoining conventional oven and hob, ceramic sink and fitted base units.


The immediate garden is well laid out with a flagged patio dividing the lawn with two terraces and edged with borders

and flower and herb beds. A new private drive has been created dividing the garden into two. The lower area is less formal with trees and a small pond for ducks and the upper level having an orchard and fenced kitchen garden. A small paddock runs behind with stables (two loose boxes (3.6m x 3.1m) and a tack room (3.6m x 1.8m)). Timber double garage (5.50m x 4.27m), kennel/bike shed and a small garden shed.
