The Property

3 Corchester Towers is a spacious three bedroomed apartment situated on the first floor of the former Corchester Boys Preparatory School. Situated on the western edge of the village of Corbridge, the building was converted in the early 1980’s to incorporate seven apartments. The original building still offers a host of period features including paneled doors, high ceilings, deep skirtings and decorative cornicing.

A pillared entrance portico to the rear of the property incorporates double wooden doors which lead into the communal reception hall where an attractive, period wooden staircase leads to the upper floor.

The front door of the apartment leads to an entrance vestibule with useful storage cupboard, and a further part glazed door to the rear hallway; this offers access to all the accommodation which is set over one floor.

The sitting room is naturally light and bright and offers decorative coving to the ceiling, an electric fire set upon a marble hearth with wooden fire surround and dual aspect sash windows with views over the communal gardens to the front elevation.

The dining room sits to the rear elevation and offers a more formal space for entertaining. This in turn leads to the kitchen at the front of the property. On offer is a good range of wall and floor units with additional glazed cabinetry, complementary work surfaces and Belfast sink. Integral appliances include a gas hob with extractor over, double oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine.

The master bedroom is to the front elevation and benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower, comprising attractive wall and floor tiles, walk-in corner shower, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. Two further bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, are served by the family bathroom which comprises a good sized walk-in shower, wash hand basin, bidet, heated towel rail and WC.


The property is approached through impressive gates onto a tree lined tarmacadam driveway which meanders through the communal gardens, leading to the parking area at the rear with room for several vehicles and the double garage with remote controlled door, power and light.

The property benefits from the use of well-maintained, landscaped communal gardens extending to all sides with extensive lawned areas, orchard, mature trees, shrubs and bushes along with well-stocked borders. There are several areas to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and a variety of privet and copper beech hedging offer further degrees of privacy.
