New Road, Alnwick, Northumberland
A rare opportunity has arisen to the market to acquire this large rural property, combining two separate authentic stone cottages to create one extensive and impressive family home. In addition, the current owners have also provided two subsequent and recent extensions to the property. This late nineteenth century house is unique in its style and layout and really has to be seen to have an appreciation of its size, layout and potential. There is also huge investment potential, with the option to convert back to two separate cottages.
The property offers two separate entrances, one located to the left hand side of the property and the other on the right side. Entering via the left hand side, you are presented with a brief hallway which provides access into the sitting room/bedroom, dining room and the first floor landing via one of the two staircases within the property. The well presented dining room offers an abundance of sitting space and a stunning feature fireplace. Flowing through open plan access there is a spacious kitchen, which showcases fitted wall, base and drawer units for storage as well as a range of integrated appliances. From the kitchen there is entry to the utility room and one of the two conservatory's overlooking the rear garden. Proceeding through a further hallway, there is a spacious living room boasting a feature fireplace and separate office/study room. To the rear of the ground floor there is the second conservatory/garden room leading through to an attached garage. There is also a downstairs shower room with WC, as well as pantry space underneath the stairs to one side of the property, and under stairs cloakroom to the other.
To the first floor of the property there are four generously sized bedrooms, three of which offer fitted storage space, and one offering wonderful views over fields and rural land to the rear.
Completing this property is a tiled four piece family bathroom.
Externally, the property showcases an enclosed, private front garden, featuring multiple fruit trees and well-kept bordering shrubbery. This has been well looked after and developed over time, maintaining a wealth of plants and small trees which provide plenty of interest in all seasons. A photograph of the garden was featured in 'the English Garden' magazine and it has also featured in a Northumbria calendar.
