The Stables is a very special barn located in a quiet steading in Alnwick Town. Enjoying an elevated position there are quite stunning, uninterrupted views of Alnwick, the surrounding countryside and even the coast in the distance. The planning permission granted for the barn means this will be a very spacious 1846 sq ft, four bedroom barn conversion with bright and airy rooms, a stone built outdoor store and large gardens to the front and rear with a courtyard too. This property is only a short stroll into town, yet peacefully placed to enjoy a slice of tranquillity.

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms 2 Reception rooms 1 Cloaks/WC 5 Miles Private driveway parking Courtyard Garden and large rear garden

This residential steading is ever so tranquil, yet very convenient for Alnwick Town Centre, making this a popular choice for purchasers looking for a town location and a peaceful hideaway.

Expressions of interest are invited for the Freehold interest in a part converted barn with full planning for a detached, Grade II listed, 1846 sq ft, four bedroom barn conversion. The conversion was designed by David and Jane Darcy Architects who have over 20 years of experience and have come up with a stunning, practical, bright and incredibly spacious design, which uses every space of the current barn structure to it’s full potential.

There is a peaceful and private courtyard garden along with gardens to the front and rear. A stone outbuilding is brilliant too so that you can keep all of your gardening equipment hidden away tidily.

The barn has very recently undergone some major renovation works to make the property water tight. The barn was repointed, had new windows fitted, a new roof and new drainpipes and gutters. All of the services have been put in place as well meaning the barn now has mains water and electricity, LPG Calor gas tank, a rain water harvesting tank and private drainage via a treatment plant.

It is worth noting that the owner of the plot and barn would be available to contract to complete the build to the purchaser’s requirements if this was of interest.

Please see the floor plan for individual room sizes that have been planned for the conversion.

What Propology love about The Stables and Alnwick:

We absolutely love this barn and the plans have been exceptionally designed in order to get the full potential out of the existing barn. The elevated position means you have wonderful views of the town and surrounding countryside. We really love the amount of outside space that comes with this barn too. It’s the most peaceful little steading yet a stone’s throw away from the town centre. This is a wonderful and unique offering to the market.

This charming steading is directly adjacent to Alnwick Castle golf course which is perfect for golfing fans but also provides a beautifully manicured landscape to admire.

Alnwick is a true market town with a lovely market square and meandering cobbled streets steeped in culture and history. There is so much to do without even venturing out of the town. A great selection of eclectic indie shops and traditional pubs, the town also has several supermarkets as well as markets each Friday and Saturday and a Farmers market on the last Friday in the month, a Continental market over May bank holiday and Christmas markets in December. There are also regular festivals ranging from food to international music, something for everyone.

Alnwick Castle and Gardens are close by as is the incredible Tree House restaurant. Alnwick is also home to one of the largest second-hand bookshops, Barter Books, which also has a cafe and open fires. There’s also a leisure complex with swimming pool and good schooling at all levels. For food there is a good selection of traditional pubs and nice restaurants and The Playhouse, the town theatre and cinema with an all year round programme of touring productions, local rep, school and adult amateur theatre and weekly cinema screenings.

Beyond the town lies the iconic Northumberland Coast, miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, dotted with ancient castles and breathtaking scenery. Transport links to and from Alnwick are very good and available via the A1 trunk road, north to Berwick and Scotland and south to Morpeth and Newcastle, the main line East Coast rail service is nearby in Alnmouth with direct and regular services to Newcastle, London and Edinburgh. Alnwick is the perfect location for those looking for a town setting, yet within easy access to all this stunning county has to offer. Our office is a short walk away from this property, so if you’re in town, don’t forget to call in for further information or an appointment to view.
