Property description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Castle Farm, situated in the rural village of Whittingham.
The opportunity comprises a range of traditional farm buildings, a three storey semi detached farm house, two storey granary and garage with storage shed. The strong aesthetic appeal of the buildings, together with a rural and exclusive setting lends the site to an redevelopment project to residential use.

The steading has been included within the 2018 Northumberland County Council draft Strategic Housing and Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and as such offers development potential.

A pre-planning application response has been received from Northumberland County Council for 21 units. This is a mixture of traditional barn conversions and new builds. A copy of the pre-planning response and plans are available on request.

Whittingham benefits from a Church, village hall and Primary School. Alnwick town centre is 5 miles to the east of Whittingham and has extensive local amenities including shops, restaurants and the schooling for all ages. Further amenities can be easily accessed at the town of Morpeth and the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, which has a main line railway and international airport.

Whittingham is close to the A697 which provides easy access to larger towns and cities.  

CASTLE FARMHOUSE Castle Farmhouse is formerly part of Castle Inn, a former Grade II listed coaching inn with parts dating as far back as the 17th Century.

Ground floor: Front porch, hallway with staircase leading to the first floor, sitting room, dining room, kitchen with Rayburn stove, back porch, pantry and utility room.

First floor: Four bedrooms and a bathroom with WC, wash hand basin and bath.
