This property is just a ten minute walk from one of Northumberland’s best sandy beaches and a five minute walk to Warkworth village, which has a landmark castle and river walks.”
The house was built in 1983 but has been completely remodelled to create a well-insulated home that makes the most of its south-facing aspect. An extension with large areas of glazing was added to the front of the building to bring in natural light and maximise solar heat gain. A rear extension made room for a new kitchen/diner and is topped with as well 4kw solar panels. The running costs are low as income from the solar panels pays for the heating and lighting.
The property has two generous reception rooms, large dining kitchen with bi-fold doors onto the garden, a utility room, walk-in storage cupboard, four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. A lower ground-floor level houses an office, storage space and a substantial garage with timber bi-fold doors that open on to the drive.
