At nearly one million pounds, you can pick up an 8-bedroom detached Grade II listed home of considerable historical importance in Alnwick, and features your own Pele Tower.

The hayloft has been converted into a two bedroom self contained holiday let, known as Pilgrims Rest.
The property is steeped in history from its 14th century origins and sits on an elevated plot with its own walled gardens and sits adjacent to the Grade II listed St. James Church - which has served the local community for over 1,000 years.
At the end of the main hall you walk into a timber and glazed conservatory that overlooks the very attractive rear gardens.

The property has had many owners since the 14th century. The first being Henry Percy, the first Duke of Northumberland and the current owners have ensured their alterations have preserved the period charm of the property.
On the upper floors you have four bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, and family bathroom. On the second floor you have two further bedrooms, and an enclosed stone return staircase leads to the top of the Pele Tower.
There is a Victorian wash house in the garden which has been converted into an artist’s studio, but would lend itself to many uses.
