This Grade II Georgian gem with extensive grounds is the consummate country home, affording wonderful views towards the serene golden sands of Cheswick Sands, one of the finest and quietest beaches on Northumberland’s Heritage Coast.
Ideal for celebrations, multi-generation family get-togethers and sporting parties, East House provides an idyllic base for relaxation and taking advantage of the rich unspoilt beauty of the north Northumbrian coastal landscape, where the miles of dune-backed sands are perfect for walking, sandcastles and beach cricket.
Bounded by a manicured lawn and wider parkland, it offers masses of space to make yourselves at home, whether for sophisticated soirées or precious family together time. The scene is quintessentially classic country, yet the golden stretch of Cheswick Sands offers exhilarating coastal walks all the way to Holy Island.
East House has an elegant drawing room and dining room presented in a classic style with fine period detailing and furnished with quality antiques, stylish fabrics and beautiful artworks, the original shuttered windows complemented by the timeless Farrow & Ball colour palette.
The large country-style kitchen has a Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher and coffee machine, and is furnished with a striking zinc and copper topped 10-seater refectory table by the inglenook fireplace – highly conducive to atmospheric candle-lit suppers in front of a glowing fire.
There’s an adjacent snug with Smart TV, which could be an excellent hub for youngsters wishing to chill out together. The house offers plenty of practical space too; there’s a utility room with washing machine and dryer and a boot room for storing outdoor clothing, boards, fishing rods and golf clubs or drying out dogs after a happy day gambolling on the beach.
The classical Georgian staircase leads to five bedrooms served by five bathrooms (three en suite) which all benefit from underfloor heating. There are three bedrooms on the front aspect with garden and sea views, including a generously appointed master bedroom, and two further bedrooms to the side, one of which is a bunk room sleeping three, making it ideal for children.
Outside, manicured lawns and the wider parkland beg for games of hide and seek while providing many tempting spots to linger over coffee while absorbing the captivating view.
