Each facade has a unique composition that fits effortlessly into this Conservation area. For lovers of space and inverted living, go upstairs to live life to the full and downstairs to sleep, dry the dog and kick off your shoes. Looking at the floor plans will give you a feeling for how different and thoughtful this house is and how the developer and architect understand all about modern family life without compromising on quality or space. Layout, flow and taking advantage of natural light, shade, views, breezes, all influence the lifestyle within this luxury family home.

Construction will commence in March 2015 and completion is scheduled for summer 2016. We offer you an exclusive opportunity to reserve this home off-plan. The high ceilings, good proportions, open floor plan, and easy flow give the interior a spacious and comfortable feel. There is private timber clad detached garage with driveway and additional visitors parking, private front and rear gardens. A log store, bike storage, boot room and utility room are all part of this exceptional property. Quite a rarity to be found in Alnmouth, which is one of the most desirable coastal villages in Northumberland.

By definition, Craftsman homes have a high quality of design and craftsmanship, so they hold their value and are easy to maintain. Built from natural materials the houses accommodate the practical open and flexible living spaces that suit modern family life combined with the cosy comfort and character of traditional styling.

Situated in Alnmouth’s Conservation area, most of the architecture in the village is quite traditional, so the front facades, which form a characterful gateway to this north entrance to Alnmouth, reflect the sensitive and traditional vernacular style. Getting the details right has been so important to the developer to compliment the heritage of Alnmouth. However, by contrast, the rear west facing facades have a sharper and more crisply contemporary style, displaying wide and light bi-fold doors which open up onto a generous glazed balcony which brings evening light and clean Alnmouth air deep into the living space making the most of true coastal living.

The construction features of this home are not only aesthetically pleasing but are of the highest quality. From the crisp white Cape Cod timber cladding to the render finishing and tiled canopies. The roof is traditional natural red clay pantiles with beautiful, deep overhanging eaves with rhythmic exposed rafter ends and brick chimney with clay pot. Extruded black ‘cast iron’ styled gutters and down pipes, energy saving Photo Voltaic integrated roof panels contribute to their green credentials. Windows are all high quality ”A” rated timber double glazed sliding sash units with long term guarantees. The construction exceeds minimum thermal standards.

External doors are high quality painted hardwood and frames with toughened glass and polished chrome quality fittings. Stunning harwood timber folding doors give access to the balcony.

What Propology love about Scholefield Place

We love the way Sturton Grange Developments have paid homage to the Arts and Crafts style in such a modern and quality way. The attention to detail and the elegant design means that this home will never look dated. Every inch of this 2,444 sq ft family home counts. We think this house doesn’t just appeal to architects or artists, but to most people, because it has what homebuyers want before you even start to unpeel the layers off all the details.

Why is Alnmouth so popular? It has incredible beaches, and its long golden sands stretch out for miles from both sides of the River Aln’s estuary. It is a picture postcard village with good facilities, including shops, cafes and pubs. It is the most desirable place to buy a home in Northumberland.

An exclusive opportunity to buy a truly one-off home and experience the ultimate laid back luxury coastal dream.
