Tranwell House is a magnificent family home dating back to the mid-1800s. This stunning Grade II listed, double-fronted property sits on a plot of approximately 5.88 acres of land, including a well-established rear walled garden with mature trees and herbaceous plants, perfectly suited for entertaining and alfresco dining. Nestled amongst luscious green woodland, it is private and secluded, yet lies only a short drive from the local amenities of the pretty town of Morpeth.

This extremely desirable home is set up extremely well for the equestrian enthusiast, with paddocks, stables and a menage.

Arranged in an L-shaped configuration and spread over two airy, light-filled floors, Tranwell House’s size is matched only by its character. Many original features remain, including large sash windows and fireplaces, with spacious rooms and high ceilings all adding to the overall sense of openness and grandeur. This stunning home has been extensively renovated by its current owners, and now benefits from all the comforts of modern day living, including a wonderful bespoke kitchen, seven spacious bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms, and a gym. The house is also heated efficiently from a ground source heat pump. This generates an RHI payment of £12140 pa, which runs for 13 years.
