The Area
The property is situated in the pretty village of South Charlton where there is a church, a village hall where a play school meets twice a week, a care home, and two working farms. Located about 5 miles north of Alnwick, and just one mile from the A1, South Charlton is within easy reach of the Northumberland coast and Cheviot Hills and also benefits from recently installed fibre optic broadband.

Nearby amenities can be found in the historic market town of Alnwick with specialist shops, restaurants, pubs and hotels. The Alnwick District is famous for its unspoilt beauty with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, 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 and often referred to as “The Windsor of the North”.

As well as easy access to the A1, there are railway stations at Alnmouth and Berwick-Upon-Tweed, served by East Coast mainline, offering easy commuting to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. First, middle and high school education is readily available, with a school bus currently running past the property.

The Property
Entrance to Rowan Trees is via a large porch with a ceramic tiled floor, exposed stone wall and downlighters. The spacious reception hall has stairs leading to the first floor and doors to the reception rooms, kitchen, utility and cloakroom.

The well laid out kitchen is fully fitted with a range of base and wall units and includes an integrated extractor fan, plumbing for dishwasher, a bowl and a half inset sink and drainer and tiled splashbacks. The kitchen has a spacious porch, useful for storage, with the outside door leading to the side garden and rear of the house.

The living room is extremely spacious, with triple aspect windows giving wonderful natural light. It has a highly effective multi fuel stove set in a feature surround. Patio doors open onto a secluded paved area at the rear of the house with fine views of the garden.

The dining room has a wood effect floor and a picture window looking out to the rear garden. This is a good sized room with ample space for family or entertaining guests.

The downstairs cloakroom is fitted with soft white WC and wash hand basin and a towel rail. The utility has fitted base units with shelves above, plumbing for washing machine and tumble drier, single sink and drainer and a cupboard housing boiler and water system. The heating system is zoned, enabling ground and first floors to be heated independently.

Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a spacious gallery landing, which could be used as a study. A velux window gives excellent natural light to this area.

The master bedroom has an en-suite providing wash hand basin, WC, large corner shower and heated towel rail. There are three further double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail. Three bedrooms have recently fitted wardrobes offering excellent storage. The spacious family bathroom has a half tiled surround, bath, wash hand basin, walk-in shower, WC and heated towel rail.

On the first floor there are two large integral cupboards. One provides wardrobe and storage space and the other is an airing cupboard.
