Full description

Lilac Cottage was originally two properties, and now has been combined to create a substantial house with generous rooms and large secluded gardens.
The property has very generous sized rooms with potential to create further bedroom space if required. The large and well-stocked garden is sheltered and secluded with varied seating areas, pond and vegetable plot. There is ample parking and turning space with useful outhouse and storage.
Internally the rooms combine traditional character with modern living including gas fired central heating and double glazing. The large conservatory to the rear opens onto the stone terrace further extending the living space.

The ground floor includes sitting room with cast iron stove, separate dining room, study or family room, conservatory, kitchen and utility room.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, although one of these could create a third bedroom, en suite shower room and family bathroom.
Longhoughton is a popular village with first school, shop, post office, church and public house. It is approximately 3 miles to the railway station at Alnmouth where there are direct links north to Edinburgh and south to Newcastle and London. The county market town of Alnwick is approximately 5 miles away with choice of supermarkets, modern leisure facilities, theatre/ cinema and hospital. There are varied specialist retail units, and Bondgate Within has recently been voted ‘U.K’s Best Shopping Street’ by Google. The main A1 road gives easy commuting north and south and there are outstanding beaches and golf courses all the way up this area of the coastline, designated one of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
An early inspection is recommended.
