An interesting build from the 1980s – the Hippingstones House five bedroom property in Corbridge, Northumberland.
Not sure about the year or indeed the architect, but the listing mentions this was built around 30 years ago. Some updating has taken place since (the windows look fairly new for example). But by and large, this place is still in its original state.
That means a house with wooden ceiling and exposed brick walls, not to mention some sharp angles from the distinctive shape. Talking of the shape, there are two main ‘wings’ each with the possibility of being used as self-contained accommodation, should you have ‘staff’. No, we can’t imagine that either – maybe better suited to simply giving guests the run of one side.
Of course, if you have a big family, you’ll take over the entire place, although there is plenty of space to play with. According to the agent, the house has accommodation including an entrance vestibule, cloakroom, separate WC, a utility room, reception hall, drawing room, two studies, a family kitchen, a snug, a playroom.teenager’s room, five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Outside, you’ll find an attached double garage, a greenhouse, timber shed, a large terraced area and gardens covering around 0.65 acres, all seemingly well-maintained.
If you fancy it, the guide price is £795,000.
