A pair of newly-refurbished homes with outstanding views across countryside

The properties

With cream rendered elevations and slate tiled roofs, Thrunton Vale Cottages are a pair of semi-detached, cottage-style homes, which are newly refurbished and offer light and airy interiors, with neutral décor and contemporary fittings.

Both cottages are presented to a similarly contemporary standard having features such as double glazing, far infra-red heating, solid oak wood-flooring and rustic, ledge and brace design internal doors. Bathroom suites are modern and fresh as are the kitchens which have some integrated appliances and cream units. Each cottage benefits from an open plan kitchen and living arrangement with space for seating and dining as required. Private entrance doors to the front open into respective reception hallways whilst each property has doors that open to the rear where there are beautiful rural views.

Outside

The front garden enjoys a south and easterly outlook and is laid to lawn with picket fencing to the boundaries and gravelled areas providing parking for both homes. To the rear there are terraces laid with gravel which offer opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst enjoying countryside views. In all, the plot extends to 0.27 acres.

Situation

Location

Situated on the A697 near to the Cheviot Hills, Thrunton is renowned for its historic woodland, ideal for walking, mountain biking and horse riding, and is also home to a popular trout fishery. The nearby historic market town of Rothbury offers a wide range of amenities including shops, public houses and restaurants, whilst schooling, hospital, GP and dentist surgeries and leisure facilities are to be found in nearby Alnwick.

The rural lifestyle offered by this property is supplemented by a wide range of beautiful countryside as well as a stunning local coastline. The A697 gives easy access to the A1 trunk road leading north to Berwick and Scotland and south to Morpeth and Newcastle upon Tyne. The railway station at Alnmouth has regular direct links to Newcastle and Edinburgh, with London Kings Cross just over 3 hours away.

Potential

The properties could be let individually on standard letting agreements or the incoming purchaser may choose to occupy one and let the other out. They would also make ideal holiday lets, being within easy access of all that Northumberland has to offer. Alternatively, the properties could be merged to form a single dwelling. In addition, there is potential to extend to the side of one of the cottages. Planning Permission may already be granted for this (Ref: A/2008/0356) but the purchaser should satisfy themselves of this by making their own enquiries.
