When North East Life heard that eight craftsman-built new homes were coming on to the market in the sought-after and protected village of Bamburgh, we had to pay a visit
The opportunity to live in Bamburgh, possibly Northumberland's most attractive village, rarely arises. To have the chance to live there in a beautiful, brand new, stone-built home offering the very latest in styling and features is almost unheard of.
But that is what home owners are being offered at Mizen Court, an exclusive eight-home development by distinguished builders Country and Coastal Homes.
Nothing has been spared in creating this haven in one of the most sought-after locations of the North East.
Built around an elegant cul-de-sac with open plan gardens designed by Chelsea Flower Show award-winning designers, each home offers the very best quality materials with the finest bespoke kitchens and luxury fittings from across Europe. The colour palette has been carefully considered to seamlessly tie each room together.
It isn't exaggerating to say that the properties at Mizen Court show a passion, craft and consideration that can only be achieved by a seasoned developer, and a team of professional consultants, who have continually built award-winning projects for over 20 years.
While Bamburgh offers a wonderful location in which to create a lifestyle to some extent insulated from the frantic pace of today's urban environment, the easily-maintained homes at Mizen Court provide the opportunity for occupation either as permanent residences or as second homes. Investing in one of these properties presents the whole family with the ultimate escape to a place with endless activities and possibilities, lasting happy memories for generations and an extremely secure investment for the future.
Bamburgh is rich in history, has been the backdrop to many feature films due to its breathtaking landscape and awe-inspiring vistas and is in the heart of what is acknowledged to be one of the country's most beautiful stretches of coastline.
The village has local shops including a butcher's, village store, greengrocer's, delicatessen, coffee shops and public houses and hotels. There's a fine golf course little more than a decent tee-shot from the village centre with some of the most spectacular holes to be found on British links courses.
Access to the remainder of the region is available via the A1 trunk road and there the East Coast main railway services can be accessed at Alnmouth and Berwick.
Mizen Court comprises four elegant town houses and four spacious detached family homes, forming an elegant cul-de-sac.
All the houses include fine Northumbrian stone features such as dressed quoins, heads, cills and spectacular projecting stone bays. They are generously proportioned with superb layouts, offering a mix of four and five bedrooms.
Evidence of the attention to detail and quality is immediate as you walk into the hall across the oak flooring. You then enter the family kitchen/breakfast room, which overlooks the rear, fully landscaped garden. The extra natural daylight, provided by French doors in these family rooms entices you out into the garden, where you can enjoy a barbecue or drinks on the natural stone patio.
Climbing the oak staircase to the first floor you reach the formal lounge, which has been designed to allow you to take full advantage of the stunning views.
The homes offer Traditional timber double-glazed windows with 10-year paint guarantee; gas central heating, oak veneered doors with chrome handles and hinges; quality fitted carpets; designer light fittings; wall mounted Samsung LED TV screens; Bose Multiroom audio visual systems in the four detached homes; security alarm with PIR sensors fitted as standard; mains-operated smoke detectors; stainless steel coach lanterns to the front and rear of the properties and external hose pipe and electrical sockets.
With this kind of natural beauty and postcard-perfect views, it's hard to think of anywhere else in the world better placed to escape to. Country and Coastal Homes have enhanced Bamburgh, the Northumberland coastline and their own already- formidable reputation with the Mizen Court development. A warm welcome awaits you.
