Imagine waking up every morning to the fresh, bracing smell of coastal air, the sound of the sea - and the ever-changing views which come and go with the tide, along with a plethora of sea birds and mammals.
This delightful, single-storey home is the epitome of modern seaside living. Light and spacious, it is beautifully presented throughout. The main living accommodation has a natural stone floor with underfloor heating which makes the most of the property's renewables in the form of a ground-source heat pump and solar PV panels.
Entrance is into a welcoming hall with doors leading to a hanging closet, a WC and a utility room. The utility room also gives access to a practical plant room housing the boiler and hot water tank.
Without doubt the generous breakfasting kitchen forms a central hub, providing the perfect space in which to spend time with family and friends or to simply sit back and de-stress. It is fitted with cream Shaker-style units accented by beaten-pewter handles and with contrasting solid-oak worktops. Oak-fronted larder units occupy one wall and there's a large island unit with a Miele wine cooler and room for informal dining. Appliances include twin ovens with a warming drawer, a Siemens induction hob with purifier above, a larder fridge and an integrated dishwasher.
To one end of the room is a substantial dining/sitting area with a full-height ceiling and a multi-fuel stove. From here double doors lead outside into a private courtyard garden to the rear of the property and out to a large decked area to the beach-side garden.
The wonderfully light and bright sitting room also has a full-height ceiling. This comfortable area has skylights as well as windows to three sides. An attractive stone fireplace with herringbone brick inset houses a multi-fuel stove and creates a pleasing focal point.
There is a south-facing sunroom overlooking the courtyard garden with wainscot panelling to the walls and louvred shutters on the windows. As well as providing a versatile area in which to relax, dine or entertain, it also gives access to the three bedrooms.
The master bedroom is large with an en suite bathroom. This is fitted with a bath, shower, WC, basin and twin chrome towel warmers. There is a dressing room with a large bank of wardrobes.
The two remaining bedrooms are mirror images of each other. Both have en suite shower rooms.
All the bathrooms are fitted with Villeroy Boch sanitary ware, feature tiles and are illuminated by light tubes.
North Beach is situated in a pleasingly elevated
position right on the beach front within the pretty
hamlet of Low Hauxley. The property's enviable
location offers the unique opportunity to savour
beach living at its best, with the extensive garden literally opening straight on to one of the finest stretches of coastline in Northumberland.
Local shops and amenities can be found close
by in the increasingly popular coastal town of Amble. In addition to its reputation as the 'friendliest port', the centre now boasts an exciting new harbour-front development, a marina and a growing foodie culture.
The historic market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth provide a wider range of facilities. These include a choice of supermarkets, high street shops, excellent schools, as well as healthcare and leisure facilities.
Mainline train stations can also be found at
Alnmouth and Morpeth providing regular and direct Intercity rail services to Newcastle upon Tyne, London King's Cross and Edinburgh.
Access from the village lane is via a five-bar gate
on to an extensive gravel drive which provides
parking for a number of vehicles. There is a
detached double garage with electric doors, as
well as water and power.
A huge bonus is the terraced and gravelled
rear garden with its outstanding and unobstructed coastal views that lie just beyond its boundary. In particular, these can be enjoyed from a large deck, or from a firepit pit accompanied by the aromas of al fresco cooking. The beach can be accessed directly from the far end of the garden via a pedestrian gate which is so convenient for long walks or evening strolls.
In the middle of the property is a substantial
natural-stone-flagged courtyard offers a versatile
outside space. It works well with the pleasing
L-shaped arrangement created by the kitchen
and sunroom opening on to it. The area is bordered by raised beds and has a timber shed for garden storage.
There is also a sizeable kitchen garden complete
with raised beds, a fruit cage and a greenhouse.
