Skim over the sands and causeway, when the tide is out, to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and prepare to enter another world.
Lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast Holy Island, and its iconic Lindisfarne Castle, carries a wealth of history within its tidal walls.

Lindisfarne Castle was built in 1550 around the time that Lindisfarne Priory went out of use, to defend a harbour sheltering English ships during border skirmishes with Scotland. Stones from the Priory, which was ransacked by marauding Viking raiders in the 8th century before being rebuilt, were used to build the Castle.

Apart from its historical pedigree, Holy Island has an exciting and varied array of wildlife. Its island status protects tidal mudflats, saltmarshes and dunes which together form the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve.Rare plants and an abundance of food supplies attract visiting birds from thousands of miles away.

In the autumn pale-bellied brent geese fly in from Svalbard (Spitsbergen), pink-footed and greylag geese, widgeon, grey plovers and bar-tailed godwits are just some of the islands other visitors. Grey seals bob in the waters and can be spotted sunning themselves on the sands, joined by the occasional common seal.

Holy Island is also close to other towns and villages along the Heritage Coast of Northumberland with Berwick 13 miles north, Bamburgh 15 miles south, and Seahouses and Beadnell some 20 miles to the south. The Northumberland National Park and the Cheviot Hills are also within easy driving distance.

Property Details:

Approaching the front of this stunning property, you find a walled garden offering driveway parking, and a lawned area with various trees and shrubs. A raised terrace provides a pleasant seating area to take in the vistas, and access to the garage can be gained from the front.

Entering into a spacious porch area with Spanish style quarry tiles and high ceilings, leading on through a partially glazed door into the split level hallway.

With wood floors and doors throughout, the hallway has two storage cupboards, one housing the boiler and alarm system, and the other a useful cloaks area.

The first room you arrive at is the fabulous lounge/diner, set around a central chimney breast. This open plan room benefits from semi vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. A brick hearth houses an attractive open fire and wood store. The spacious formal dining room lies on the other side of the chimney breast, and a stunning bank of full height windows at the back of the room offer enviable views over the castle and the sea for as far as the eye can see.

A door leads off to the kitchen, which currently has a good range of serviceable wall and base units, but with a touch of modernisation could be a fantastic family space. Integrated appliances include an eye level double oven and four burner gas hob with extractor fan above. A large window looks out over the front of the property.

All bedrooms in this home have the benefit of en suite facilities, adding to the feeling of luxury and opulence running throughout.

The master suite lies off the dining room, and is a superbly generous room with a walk in wardrobe, which has also been used as an office. There is an additional bank of fitted wardrobes within the bedroom. A large window offers spectacular castle and sea views to the rear and there are semi vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, adding character. The en suite is a bright and spacious room, in need of a little modernisation. The room is fully tiled and the current suite includes a bidet as well as a corner, whirlpool bath.

Bedroom two is situated back off the main hallway, and is another sizable double room. A semi vaulted ceiling and window to the side add to the light and airy feel, in keeping with the build style of the home. The en suite facilities include a white vanity sink and a cast iron bath tub. There is also a useful airing cupboard.

Bedroom three, has two windows looking out over the front of the property and benefits from en suite facilities including a walk in shower with shower curtain.

Externally, to the rear is one of the most impressive and breathtaking aspects on the island. A raised terrace with planted beds has been added to fully immerse yourself in the views, and provide an ideal outdoor entertaining space.

Steps lead down to a large garden on a lower level, with lawn and pretty flowering borders. An additional patio area at the bottom of the garden provides more seating, and allows you to enjoy the sun as it moves around the garden. A shed and outbuilding provide garden storage, and there is access to the garage and under the house for works.

This outstanding bungalow is truly rare to the market, and would make an ideal family home, second home or holiday let. It is, indeed, worthy of an internal appointment to view and we would recommend that you do this at your earliest convenience.
