What Propology love about Boreas House and the location:
Boreas House is a spacious barn conversion built with only the very best of materials and attention to detail. We love the way the property has been finished to a high standard throughout with a successful blend of contemporary and classic style. We really like the feature oak beams in the main reception rooms and large windows benefitting from natural daylight. The property offers excellent storage throughout and is presented for sale in immaculate order. Boreas House would make an ideal family home and for those looking for an investment opportunity has previously been run as a successful holiday let.
Boreas House sits on the fringes of the sought after picturesque village of Warkworth and is located south of Alnwick. Warkworth has an excellent range of pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and quality gift shops as well as the renowned Warkworth Castle located in the centre of the village and dominating the surrounding landscape.
