Buttery Hall Farm is a substantial south facing stone-built (and some timber cladding) former farm steading, instantly recognisable by its impressive red brick chimney stack, recently converted into an exciting contemporary rural residence. It has been designed to bring the 'outside in' and the 'inside out' through the use of full height gable windows, bringing a wealth of natural light into the property and which, at the same time, make the most of the views.
The striking accommodation is arranged over two floors and consists of a large kitchen/breakfast/family room, four reception rooms (snug, games room, home cinema and dining room with a well), four bedrooms (including the main suite) and three further bath/shower rooms. The overall finish is an eclectic mix of old and new, cleverly blending the period features with their more contemporary counterparts.
Of particular note at Buttery Hall Farm are its “green” credentials. It is “super” insulated with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, with radiators upstairs. Central heating and hot water is provided by a biomass boiler, working in parallel with a wind turbine and PV panels, all of which contribute to the annual Renewable Heat Incentive and Feed-in Tariff.
Outside the rainwater is “harvested”. The house is piped for “grey water”, although not currently connected. It also has a ground source heat loop if that option was ever required. Outside lighting is LED; rather than downpipes from the aluminium gutters there are rain chains – an interesting/innovative design feature.
Gardens & Grounds
Surrounding Buttery Hall Farm are gardens and grounds that extend to approximately 1 acre. Outside the front door – that opens outwards – is a courtyard of Harrogate stone and plenty of parking space. At the back of the house is decking and a more expansive area of grass.
Buttery Hall Farm is a cleverly converted 19th century stone-built farm steading positioned just a short distance from the Northumberland coast, approximately 5.5 miles south of Berwick-upon-Tweed, just west of A1. It is accessed from the public highway by a private road.
The historic, fortified market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, lying on the border between England and Scotland, provides a wide range of local retail facilities and services. The main east coast train line stops in Berwick from where there are regular services to both Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne (both approximately 55 minutes) as well as London King's Cross (approximately 3 ½ hours).
Locally there are a number of schooling options with primary schools, middle schools and secondary schools in Scremerston, Spittal and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Just outside Berwick is Longridge Towers School, a private school taking children from the ages of three to eighteen. The A1 provides excellent vehicular access to the north and south, ensuring that the cities of Edinburgh and Newcastle and their international airports are within commuting distance.
Buttery Hall Farm is well located for leisure activities. North Northumberland is well known for its striking coastline. Nearby are the beautiful beaches of Cocklawburn and Goswick. Goswick Links Golf Club is widely recognised as one of the top golf courses in Northumberland; this 'James Braid' designed masterpiece hosts regional qualifying tournaments for the Open Championship.
The Scottish border is approximately 6 miles to the north so the popular border towns of Kelso and Melrose are within easy reach. For the walking enthusiast the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park provide endless opportunities in spectacular countryside. Holy Island (Lindisfarne) and th
