A Planning consent exists for an additional 3 bedroom detached cottage in the grounds of School House Ref: 15/01647/FUL. In addition to the purchase price the buyer will be responsible for paying Northumberland Estates £14,000 to remove a restrictive covenant to excerise any planning consent.

This characterful stone property has a charmingly traditional feel and is deceptively spacious. A number of period features are to be found throughout making this an exciting renovation opportunity.

There is extensive ground-floor accommodation, including a well-proportioned drawing room which could be used as a further bedroom and a cosy sitting room, both with tiled hearths and solid-fuel fires. There's also a sizeable dining room and a kitchen with a utility area.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms served by a family bathroom and a large storeroom.

The School House enjoys an elevated spot on a quiet cul-de-sac lane in the up-and-coming village of Lucker. The property is nicely tucked away from the main street yet conveniently close to The Apple Inn, a gastro pub serving traditional food, and neighbouring eatery, The Apple Core.

The property is ideally situated for enjoyment of Northumberland's magnificent coastline. This 30-mile stretch of dog-friendly, golden beaches, offers a great deal to see and do. Its attractions include quaint fishing communities, a wealth of watersport and leisure activities, sea life galore, coastal golf courses and more castles than any other county in England.

The affluent and perennially popular coastal village of Bamburgh, with its iconic castle built by the first Lord Armstrong, is just 4 miles to the north east. Here visitors to the village can enjoy a range of local shops including a traditional family butcher, a country store, a gallery, as well as a number of fine pubs and restaurants.

More choice, including a number of supermarkets, can be found inland in the medieval market town of Alnwick, home of the famous 'Harry Potter castle' and the celebrated Alnwick Garden. Alternatively a trip to Wooler or Berwick-upon-Tweed to the north offers plenty more choice. Both Alnwick and Berwick have good schools for pupils of all ages, as well as close proximity to mainline railway stations with regular services to the north and south.

A compact and enclosed south-facing cottage garden frames the front of the property and acts as a delightful sitting area. A parking area can be found to the left of the house and is located through double wooden gates.

The rear garden with its orchard of mature fruit trees is laid mostly to lawn and bordered by a leafy canopy of well-established trees and shrubs.

The property also has a sizeable side garden which looks out to the lane. There is exisiting planning consent for the erection of an additional dwelling (Ref: 15/01647/FUL)
