Full description

 

Bradley Hall are delighted to introduce to the market this beautifully presented top floor, duplex apartment located in the picturesque coastal village of Alnmouth. “Lying near the Church and occupying the best site in the village, with commanding views over the Golf Course and Sea” is how Letton Lodge was described in the sale Particulars when it was auctioned on January 11th, 1895.

Situated on Northumberland's Heritage coastline and located 5 miles South East of the historic market town of Alnwick, Alnmouth offers an abundance of amenities including public houses, restaurants, gift shops, a village golf club and beach, just a few of the many reasons Alnmouth was named one of the “best places to live by the sea” by The Times in July 2017.

Nearby Alnwick offers a wider range of amenities including shops, supermarkets, public houses, restaurants, first and high schools, hospital, doctors, dentists, leisure facilities and is home to the major tourist attractions of the Medieval Alnwick Castle, the Alnwick Garden and the world-famous Barter Books.

Access to the remainder of the region is available via the A1 trunk road leading north to Berwick and Scotland and south to Morpeth and Newcastle upon Tyne. The Main East Coast Line railway station at Alnmouth has regular direct links to Newcastle and Edinburgh, with Kings Cross under four hours away.

To the front of the property a gravel drive leads from Northumberland Street to a gravelled area with off-street parking spaces. The adjacent Letton House is a separate Freehold.


The entrance hallway provides a shared cloaks area for Flats 2 and 3, and a “meter cupboard” for all three flats, with under-stairs shelves to the rear. Stairs lead up to Flats 2 and 3; at the top of the stairs is a Velux window providing natural light onto the landing; mirrors on all floors reflect this light onto the stairs in a welcoming manner.The main front door is shared only by Flats 2 and 3 (except for access to the Flat 1 electricity meter) and has an audio entry system enabling control of the front door from within Flat 3.

Flat 3, on the second floor, is double-glazed throughout and has been refurbished over recent years from September 2013, including installation of a new “on peak” Electric

Distribution Board and hot water cylinder with dual immersion heaters. Insulation to the Bathroom and separate local water heaters to the Kitchen and Bathroom complete an energy-efficient apartment utilising the “Economy 7” Tariff.

A wooden front entrance door leads into a spacious and welcoming hallway/library with built-in bookshelves and an electric night storage heater. Two bedrooms lead off the hallway, as does a built-in office-cupboard, currently fitted with a desk, filing area and bookcase.

Bedroom one is a single but spacious bedroom with a dual aspect; one window provides views of the coast; the other has views over the Letton Lodge drive, Alnmouth and the countryside beyond. This room is currently laid out as an office with a bed built in above; it incorporates built-in wardrobes, shelves and drawers. To the floor are stripped wood floor boards.

Bedroom two is a single bedroom that is currently used as a utility area. Within this area are built-in cupboards and a work bench with drawers below. A window provides an attractive view of Alnmouth, and the coast.

The main bedroom has a dormer style window with tranquil beach and sea views and natural light. There are built-in units with drawers and a vanity unit. A good-sized walk in wardrobe is incorporated and a rarely needed combined night storage and convector heater is housed in this bedroom.

The bathroom is a good size and benefits from built-in units, vanity sink and a concealed cistern toilet. Floor to ceiling wet walling surrounds the room which also houses a white bath with shower taps and electric shower over. A large window overlooks the side of the property and over Alnmouth.

Adjacent to the bathroom is a utility cupboard with built-in units, space for a tumble dryer, and which houses the hot water cylinder with dual immersion heaters.

The dining kitchen is wonderfully light and spacious with cream doors with wooden knobs. Within the kitchen is a built-in Welsh dresser type unit, ample space for a dining table and chairs and space for an under-bench fridge, a washing machine and slimline dishwasher. There is an electric under bench oven with a ceramic induction hob and above is a chimney style extractor fan. The kitchen benefits from complementary work surfaces and a white ceramic sink. A feature of the kitchen is the dormer style window over the sink with stunning panoramic views of Alnmouth, the countryside, beach and golf course.

Leading to the kitchen is a bar area with further units, five stairs up to the Sitting Room, and stairs that lead to the converted attic.

The large Sitting Room features oak flooring, extensive eaves storage cupboards to the sides, and a fabulous fully vaulted ceiling. Two spectacular views, one looking to the golf course and Marsh (a magnet for wildlife, including nesting swans and geese and occasional Roe Deer), the other looking out to Warkworth beach and open countryside with Warkworth Castle in the distance – occasionally with Dolphins readily visible close to the beach. A striking dormer style window provides a tranquil place to sit and admire the views of the beach, sea life and Coquet Island. Ample heating is provided by a small storage heater and, currently, an electric fan heater.

Within the converted attic are two large separate rooms, one with a built-in wardrobe and drawers, and a lockable walk-in cupboard. Each room features dual aspect Velux Windows, providing stunning views including over the village to Alnwick Moor in the distance. Used primarily for storage, these rooms are light and bright and offer a variety of uses.

This superb apartment can be used as a main home, second home or holiday let (subject to suitable insurance being effected).

There is fast Broadband to Alnmouth successfully serving Flat 3.

Letton Lodge was converted into three leasehold flats in the 1980s; Flat 3 has 90 years remaining on the lease. The freehold is owned by the three leaseholders via the  “Letton Lodge Management Company Limited”; there is no “Management Charge” as such.
