The charming village of Whittingham lies approximately 8 miles from the lively market town of Alnwick which offers a wide range of shopping, recreational and medical facilities. The A697 offers access to the Scottish borders to the north with Morpeth and Newcastle-upon-Tyne lying to the south. Whittingham has a highly regarded first school and a well-used memorial hall which has undergone major refurbishment in recent years. The village is served by public transport to Alnwick, Wooler and Newcastle-upon-Tyne and there is a mobile butcher, fishmonger and milk delivery service in addition to a fish and chip van on Friday evenings. The adjacent village of Glanton has a small village store and a pub, while there is a good mini market at the garage in Powburn for basic groceries. Whittingham is steeped in history and has St Bartholomew’s Anglican and St Mary Immaculate Catholic churches at its heart and the Whittingham Show is still a popular tradition each summer.
This attractive detached family home is of traditional build (stone under a slate roof) and provides flexible accommodation. To the ground floor:- off of the bright, welcoming hallway are double glazed doors to the sitting and dining rooms, with further doors to the cloakroom and kitchen (with an exceptionally large utility room beyond). The sitting room is dual aspect with inglenook fireplace and wood burning
stove and has an integrated media unit. There are French doors to the terrace. The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and perhaps offers scope to amalgamate these 2 rooms to create a large cooking/dining/entertaining space. The kitchen has pretty duck egg blue fitted wall and floor units and has integrated oven, hob, fridge
freezer and wine fridge. The utility space is a very useful feature of the property giving a large area for the usual white goods and storage. However, there is also potential to turn this area into a kitchenette and bathroom to service the living space (currently used as an study/office) above the garage should a self-contained annexe be required. A good size cloakroom concludes the features on the ground floor.
To the first floor, off the spacious landing, are 3 double bedrooms (en-suite shower room to master), a single bedroom and the family bathroom. There are attractive fitted wardrobes to bedrooms 1 and 2. There is quality flooring through the property featuring solid timber, natural stone tiles and quality carpets.
