Built in 1855, the Farmers Boy is an attractive and individual double fronted four bedroom detached Victorian house with real character. Formerly a public house until the mid 1980s, it has been converted to a large residential property which has been sympathetically renovated by its current owners. The house now blends period features with the convenience of a modern property. Exterior walls have been dry lined and insulated meaning that the house has excellent fuel efficiency for a property of its age. All windows are uPVC including the sash windows at the front which have the additional advantage of turning inside out for cleaning, while retaining the property's period character. Internally the Farmers Boy is a spacious family home; the original four receptions have been restructured to create a series of large living spaces refurbished to a high specification. The combined lounge and dining room is over 30' (9.14m) in length with stunning acacia wood floors. There is a separate sitting room with a feature fireplace and a 27' (8.22m) kitchen diner with a solid oak kitchen and granite worktops, which also gives access to a large cellar. To the first floor an impressive full length corridor landing gives access to a large period style family bathroom and four double bedrooms with master having an en suite bathroom and walk-in dresser. Outside there is a private walled garden to the rear of the house and off road parking for a single vehicle both to the front and rear. The property holds a central position within the semi-rural village of Alsagers Bank overlooking fields to the rear. There is a park with a children's play area opposite the house and Bates Wood and Silverdale Country parks are within a few minutes walk. The village has good commuter links and there are a number of good schools within easy distance. Alsagers Bank lies approximately four miles north-west of Newcastle town.
