The area is renowned for its miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and historic castles. Wider amenities can be found in Alnwick which offers an assortment of banks, medical services, sports centre and many high street retailers.

A Mainline railway station with superb rail connections to London, Newcastle and Edinburgh is available from Chathill, Alnmouth or Berwick-upon-Tweed.

The Property
Preston House is a handsome family home sitting in a prime location near to the Coast but with easy access to the A1. The house extends to approximately 6992 sq ft over three floors and dates back to the early 19th Century and is constructed of traditional rendered stone under a pitch slate roof. The present owners have lovingly restored the property over the years including a full re-fit of the plumbing system and electrics throughout, offering an upgraded and spacious family home. The bright well-proportioned and versatile accommodation combines a wealth of wonderful period features with comfortable modern living. These include working shutters, original fireplaces, panelled doors and period cornicing. The front porch leads to a welcoming reception hall (with attractive original fireplace and encaustic tiled floor) and staircase leading to the first floor.

The large formal drawing room sits to the left of the reception hall enjoying wonderful views over the garden. The house benefits from a spacious dining room with fine views to the West. A charming sitting room can also be found at this level with bay window and window seat. There is a dining kitchen complete with a 4 oven Aga and a range of stylish storage cupboards with a large laundry/utility room beyond. A door leads from here to a collection of useful pantries. The study which sits behind the kitchen completes the ground floor accommodation, along with a cloakroom. A period staircase leads to the first floor landing. There are four well proportioned double bedrooms all with contemporary en-suite facilities and a family bathroom. A rear staircase continues to the second floor with three further bedrooms and a WC. Preston House has been run as a successful Wolsey Lodge and Bed & Breakfast over the past few years offering gracious country house accommodation.
