Bartholomew Cottage is a beautiful, individually designed, three bedroom detached, single storey new build stone cottage with lovely views, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac of three other new build properties located in the pretty village of Whittingham, just 8 miles from Alnwick. The property has traditional appeal with its sandstone elevations but contemporary accents run throughout which include composite timber cladding to part of the rear elevation creating a unique and attractive property. The cottage is available to reserve immediately with completion for the end of June 2022. Please note that commercial holiday letting is not permitted.

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 1 Reception room Driveway parking Private driveway to front with patio, garden to rear

This charming 3 bedroom single storey new build cottage constructed in stone with slate roof, blends traditional style and contemporary accents. Built with superb green credentials, Bartholomew Cottage is heated by an efficient air source heat pump, is extremely well insulated and offers under floor heating throughout. There’s PVCu and aluminium heritage style double glazed windows and composite exterior doors. The kitchen has an instant boiling water tap to save on water and energy. There’s also a multi-fuel burning stove as an alternative heat source. The handy outbuilding is composite timber cladding to eradicate maintenance and to provide some visual contrast to the honeyed sandstone of the cottage. There is a large, insulated loft area above the lounge which is boarded out with two Velux windows providing great storage space but potential for additional accommodation or studio/office (with the addition of a small staircase) if desired post completion at an additional cost.

This charming home balances the concept of modern living with country character, the open-plan kitchen/dining space has that wow factor with its exposed roof timbers and lovely views towards the cottage’s namesake – St Bartholomew’s church.

AGENT’S NOTE: Under Section 21 of the Estate Agents Act 1979 (declaration of interest) we have a duty to inform potential purchasers of this property that the vendor is an employee of Propology Boutique Properties.

What’s outside Bartholomew Cottage?

To the front of the cottage there is a block paved drive with level access to the property itself.  Five bar double country timber gates define the entrance to the beautiful, welcoming oak porch set on reclaimed brick piers. There is a really useful, composite timber clad outbuilding with power. A small sandstone patio catches much of the morning/early afternoon sun – ideal for morning coffee. There is outside lighting and water supply. A range of attractive boundary fencing and dwarf stone walls to provide security and visual appeal.  

To the rear is a patio in natural Indian sandstone with steps in quality ironwork leading to a raised dining platform for those summer afternoon barbeques. Garden is laid to lawn.

There is a very useful storage area (not full height) underneath the kitchen/dining space for garden furniture, garden tools etc.

What Propology love about Bartholomew Cottage and Whittingham

We love the tucked away position of Bartholomew Cottage at the end of this new, small and exclusive cul-de-sac.  It’s a peaceful spot to enjoy the wildlife and the serenity of country living. We’re impressed with the quality stonework and attention to detail as soon as you take your first glance at the cottage. We love the forward-thinking energy saving benefits as well as the low maintenance features.

The village is well served by its popular memorial hall which hosts many events for all the family and Whittingham C of E Primary School next door is very well regarded.  The beautiful church of St Bartholomew dates back to Saxon times and Bartholomew Cottage has good views of its namesake and of the hills beyond.

Whittingham is just 8 miles east of Alnwick with its wide range of facilities and with Northumberland’s famous coastline just 4 miles beyond that. Heading west of the village, Rothbury is just over 9 miles away giving access to the jaw-dropingly gorgeous scenery of Northumberland’s National Park.
