Eastfield Lodge is a charming, stone-built Victorian lodge located in a beautiful Northumberland, rural landscape only two miles inland from the pretty village of Warkworth. The property has been sympathetically restored and provides a character home with the benefits of a modern kitchen and family bathroom. Whilst the property has two double bedrooms, there is also the advantage of an additional bedroom/studio above the large garage, so there is plenty of scope for utilising the space for guests or even a holiday let. The entrance lobby still has the original leaded windows and there are also the original mullion windows in the lounge, both bedrooms and kitchen which have been double glazed. The spacious lounge has an open fireplace and the kitchen has a wood burning stove, providing the perfect setting for Winter evenings and there is also the conservatory. The main living areas are perfect for entertaining friends and family as there is a great flow from the lounge, through the kitchen to the dining room and conservatory. The property has natural light streaming through and a lovely outlook across the gardens to the rural landscape beyond.

What Propology love about Eastfield Lodge and the area:

The location is fantastically rural yet within easy reach of amenities, being situated between the picturesque historic village of Warkworth and the seaside-chic village of Alnmouth. Further amenities are available in the market town of Alnwick is just five miles to the north, including shopping facilities, theatre/cinema, leisure centre and schooling for all ages.

Who would Eastfield Lodge suit? It’s an idyllic retreat purpose-built for switching down a gear and making the most of all that coastal country living has to offer. If it’s a weekend retreat you are after or a more permanent move from perhaps an urban environment, then we think you will not be disappointed by what this lovely home has to offer.
