The Property

Low Sunniside is an uninhabited, detached farmhouse with associated traditional outbuildings and two-storey byre which is set in beautiful open countryside with fabulous far-reaching views and land extending to just under 4 acres. The property is close to the pretty and peaceful hamlet of Catton. The property benefits from detailed planning permission (12/01580/VARYCO) to renovate the house add a link to the outbuildings and convert the barn to provide a spacious and flexible house.

Internally, the new house will provide well laid out accommodation with generously proportioned kitchen/dining room and sitting rooms, both of which will take full advantage of the stunning rural views. The plans include a contemporary link with vaulted ceiling and full-height glazed wall with sliding doors which will provide a garden room between the kitchen/dining room and sitting room. A music room or study, cloakroom/WC and utility room are also proposed on the ground floor. To the first floor, the plans include galleried landing, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and two further bedrooms and bathroom.

Planning Permission

The property benefits from detailed planning permission reference 12/01580/VARYCO granted by Northumberland County Council dated 9th August 2012. Full planning documents are available to view at the offices of Finest Properties in Corbridge.


Externally, it is proposed that the drive will lead to a parking area to the rear of the house and the proposed new detached double garage. There will be garden areas to the front and sides of the house bordered by a combination of existing stone boundary walls and post and rail fencing.

The paddock land is located to the front and rear of the property, with two fenced paddocks in all amounting to just under 4 acres.
