Property description

Description Continued

This Grade ll listed stone built residence started life as a coaching inn which our clients ran prior to adapting the property to their own private residence which boasts six bedrooms, a large reception room, two bathrooms, kitchen and utility room. The apartment provides a delightful sitting room, large double bedroom, dining kitchen and wet room. In order to appreciate the versatility and charm of this period home potential buyers must see The Castle Inn first hand and we are confident you will not be disappointed.

Main Accommodation

This imposing three storey residence has an impressive front entrance that opens up into a generous reception hall with a staircase leading to the bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. The high ceilings the property boasts magnify the proportions of the rooms, a great example of this is seen in the sitting room which also features two tall sash style windows. You have direct access from the sitting room and hall to the kitchen and at the end of the hall you enter the rear entrance and utility room. The first floor of the main residence provides three good size double bedrooms, two of which have stunning views of the adjoining rolling farmland and Cheviot Hills, and a family bathroom. The second floor accommodates three further bedrooms, a sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.

Apartment Accommodation

For multi-generational living or holiday letting potential you have the self-contained ground floor apartment, which shares the front entrance but has its own rear entrance. You have a delightful sitting room, a large double bedroom, a fabulous fitted dining kitchen and a shower room that has been fitted to care for those with disabled needs. Taking into account the desirability of the area, the apartment would also make attractive holiday accommodation as Whittingham is well placed for access to the rolling countryside of Northumberland and the county’s stunning coastline.
