Thornbrae offers a fabulous and unique lifestyle opportunity as a luxury holiday homes portfolio in the centre of Alnwick, comprising - Thornbrae, a large four bedroom period detached house, The Cottage, a two bedroom detached single storey cottage, The Lodge, a two bedroom original lodge house, The Retreat, a two bedroom mews house, and The Apartment, a one bedroom annexe apartment. The portfolio is currently a successful business opportunity available online via Travel chapter with further information available upon request.
The imposing stone built detached house and cottages are set within extensive mature gardens and grounds of approx. 1 acre and have a prestigious position on the much sought after Alnmouth Road in Alnwick, within walking distance of the town centre, Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle. The main house and Lodge have been refurbished to a high standard throughout, along with the newly built bungalow, the creation of The Retreat from former annexed accommodation, and the creation of the triple garage, with The Apartment above and an impressive and versatile gym/games room at the rear.
The sympathetic refurbishment of the main house and Lodge has seen many traditional features retained, with decorative ceiling coving, roses and moulding to the high ceilings, deep skirtings and oak architraves, and double glazing sash windows throughout. The new stone built holiday properties have been created with the period of the main house in mind, with oak internal doors and floors in keeping with the original houses.
The house is approached via a beautiful stone pillared entrance, with decorative wrought iron railings and a stone wall, leading to an extensive tarmac driveway area with parking for several cars. Secure gates open at the side to a private lawned garden with South facing aspect, with a large decked terrace, incorporating covered hot tub and barbecue area, along with children's play area and three timber pods, used as additional storage.
