Set in approximately one and a quarter acres of grounds with boundary walls constructed in reclaimed stone walls with antique stone coping. Rushy Gair enjoys spectacular open countryside views and is not overlooked. There is a detached stone built double garage with Welsh slate roof and electric doors. There is a pleasant lawned garden to the front of the property, the garden room looks onto this aspect, whilst the side and rear elevations are laid to lawn with terraced areas. There are panoramic open countryside views to the north, west and east as the landscape sweeps gently down to the Coquet Valley across rolling green fields and ancient woodland. Tucked away, but very accessible, and set in gentle farmland, criss-crossed with footpaths, this quiet place with stunning views is very private, and yet not isolated.

North Highmoor Farm is situated approximately 10 miles north of Morpeth and 9 ½ miles south of Alnwick. Newcastle international airport is located  26 miles away.
What We Love about North Highmoor Farm
We love the country location and the views yet easy access from the A1 ticks our location box. The mix of humble nature and high-end contemporary interior design with a dose of country charm makes this stylish home hard to resist. We also love the windows in the main living areas as they invite the natural environment to flow into the house. The quality and outstanding craftsmanship this home offers, especially the stonework and timber beams serve as a reminder of the property’s agricultural heritage. This home exudes a sense of laid-back luxury.
