Achille House is a 2000 sq ft 3 bedroom single storey barn conversion in a glorious coastal setting. This home is a new breed of barn conversion, sophisticated and flexible as an urban loft equivalent. This home provides a far more modern way of living than any traditional house could offer. With wide open spaces and dramatic high ceilings to the main living areas, the layout of this home meets the current demand for open plan living and room to roam. The cleverly placed kitchen and huge sliding wall to the dramatic reception area provides fluidity and flexibility that encourages multi-functional spaces for eating, relaxing and entertaining. At the same time, this former barn comes with a unique character and charm that flows from its organic simplicity and unpretentious beauty.
Achille House is constructed to an extremely high standard and offers a plethora of high tech features, including underfloor heating, solar thermal hot water, multi-room AV and structured cabling. The interior of the property is impressive too with bespoke fixtures and fittings throughout, designed to meet the demands of modern family life.

What Propology love about Achille House and Warkworth
We love the flow and layout of this home, particularly the kitchen and sliding wall to reception area. Each bedroom is a double and two bedrooms feature dressing areas with luxurious bathroom facilities. We also love the peaceful location and the high standard of construction that makes country and contemporary work so harmoniously together. The location is also a winner, being approximately 1 mile from the beach and a short walk into Warkworth Village.
A ten minute walk from the property will get you to the charming 14th century Warkworth Bridge which crosses the River Coquet and to the medieval cave hermitage and chapel of a solitary holy man accessible only by boat. Within walking distance are Warkworth golf course which is a seaside links course designed by Old Tom Morris in 1891 and your local dog friendly beach which is simply spectacular with an expanse of golden sand and beautiful dunes overlooking the RSBP reserve of Coquet Island.
The dune system at Warkworth beach is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and is recommended by the Marine Conservation Society.
For those with sea legs the Coquet Yacht Club is situated at Amble Marina only a 4 minute drive away.
Access to Newcastle via the A1 and A1068 Coast Road is within easy reach and Alnmouth train station is only three miles to the north with frequent daily direct lines to Newcastle (25 mins) London Kings Cross (3 hours 20 mins) and Edinburgh (1 hour). Newcastle International Airport is approximately thirty miles to the south and Edinburgh Airport one hundred miles to the North.
