Listed Grade II*, Whittingham Tower dates back to the late 13th or early 14th century and later became an alms house. On the east step the Tudor headed door of 1845 refers to the tower being used as a place of refuge by the village and having been repaired and remodelled by Lady Ravensworth. The interior walls are 8 feet thick in places with a tunnel vaulted ground floor and three further floors.
The property has been restored and refurbished to provide an unusual and extensive accommodation within Whittingham village. The ground floor snooker room has the stone vaulted ceiling and separate w.c.. On the first floor there is a fantastic kitchen/ dining room with a range of fitted units and all modern appliances. The sitting room has a large stone fire surround with dog grate and windows to two elevations.
On the second floor the master bedroom has an en suite dressing room and shower room; there are two further double bedrooms and bathroom, with alterations underway to the third floor to create a fourth bedroom and access out onto the battlements.
Oil fired central heating is included and Planning Permission is available for a garage. There is a generous gravelled parking area and garden with gated entry.
Whittingham has village first school and is only around 1 mile from the main A697 road for easy commuting. The villages of Glanton and Powburn to the north have public houses and village shops plus fuel station, and the county market town of Alnwick is around 8 miles away.
This is a most unusual and spectacular property which must be viewed internally to be appreciated.
