Toscaig is an attractive, individually designed 3095 sq ft, five bedroom detached home arranged over three floors, in a gorgeous setting offering exceptional coastal and countryside views over one of the most iconic coastal sections of Northumberland. Enjoying an elevated position, the layout of this home maximises the incredible views. Sit in the orangery and take in the views of Alnmouth nestling at the mouth of the River Aln. Relax in the hot tub to the back of the house where the picture perfect open countryside is your vista.

Toscaig is situated in Bilton, a quaint village enjoying a superb position overlooking the open countryside and the coastal village of Alnmouth, which was recently voted as the one of the best places to live in Britain by the The Times property supplement, Bricks and Mortar.

The property was constructed in 2002 as a thoughtful new build using natural stone from a traditional farm steading and offering the convenience, low maintenance and practicalities of a modern home.

What Propology love about Toscaig and Bilton

We love the views from this home, each room gives a different perspective over the coast and countryside. The breakfasting kitchen is cleverly positioned between to the two main reception rooms making dinner parties a breeze. The main living areas are situated on the first floor, bringing a feeling of space and light. The main bedrooms are all en-suite and the master bedroom is a real haven of peace and tranquility. This is a spacious family home where you can come together and spend quality time but also escape to your own room and enjoy privacy. Why is this location so popular? It has incredible beaches, historic castles, great walks and breathtaking scenery. The local beach is Alnmouth with its long golden sands stretching out for miles from both sides of the River Aln’s estuary. It is a picture postcard village with access to good facilities, including shops, cafes and pubs. The mainline East Coast train station is within walking distance. What’s not to love?
