Longhoughton is a small village a few miles north east to the market town of Alnwick. The village has local amenities such as a small supermarket, first school and doctors’ surgery, with a coastal bus route to Alnwick, where wider amenities can be found. The property is well located to offer easy access to the A1 with Berwick & the Borders to the North. The stunning Northumberland coast is within walking distance, approximately 1 mile away with the area being renowned for miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and historic castles.
The popular historic market town of Alnwick has an abundance of amenities including supermarkets, specialist shops, banks, restaurants, doctors surgeries, pubs and hotels along with first and secondary schools. The Alnwick District is famous for its natural beauty, and is one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England – with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, Holy Island and well preserved medieval Castles, and gardens. There are numerous Stately Homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland, with it’s gardens being a popular tourist attraction. A mainline railway station with superb rail connections to London, Newcastle and Edinburgh is available from nearby Alnmouth.
1 The Croft is a deceptively spacious, detached 3/4 bedroom, stone built, dormer bungalow. Built approximately 20 years ago, the property sits in the middle of a good size plot (offering potential for extension, subject to the necessary consents). The comfortable accommodation comprises a front porch leading into an inner hall. The sitting room features an attractive brick fireplace, with gas stove and the second reception is presently configured as a dining room, both enjoying lovely views across the garden. There are currently 3 double bedrooms (one, on the first floor with views of the sea, is used as a hobby room and has fitted bedroom furniture). The remaining 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor, the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and the second bedroom features a wall of quality, glazed fitted wardrobes. There is scope to use the dining room as a fourth bedroom, if required. The cheerful kitchen is light and spacious (with quarry tile floor and double doors to the garden) and is certainly the heart of the home in this property with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. It features a generous array of modern fitted cupboards with attractive composite granite work tops. There is an integrated oven, induction hob, extractor fan, ceramic sink, dishwasher and freestanding ‘fridge freezer with cupboards over. Off of the kitchen is a very useful utility/drying room where there is further storage, plumbing for white goods and a handy overhead pulley airer. From the utility/drying room are doors to the garden and integral garage. There is extremely good storage in the way of a large, walk-in attic space on the first floor in addition to fitted storage cupboards throughout the property and a large landing area which is currently used as a study area .
The property has been very well maintained and provides spacious accommodation and has all the usual benefits of a desirable home including full double glazing.
