The Property

3 The Park Wing is a beautiful home within the stunning Callaly Castle. Steeped in history, Callaly Castle has been enhanced over the years by the Clavering and Browne families, with substantial development in the 1670’s, 1820’s and 1890’s. The castle was divided into seven principal wings in the late 20th century by renowned architect Kit Martin. Pevsner’s Architectural Guide states Callaly Castle is “one of the most interesting and varied houses in Northumberland”. A particular highlight of the property is the access through to Callaly Castle Museum which can be enjoyed by all the residents.

The main entrance to 3 The Park Wing is located to the north-eastern side of Callaly Castle. The front door opens into the entrance hall which leads to the bedroom accommodation. The main bedroom, with attractive feature fireplace, overlooks the garden to the front. There are two further bedrooms, one of which is the former strong room with an arched ceiling and one offering a walk-in wardrobe. The three bedrooms are all served by a shower room with shower unit, bidet, wash-hand basin and WC.

A grand reception hall, which would make a fantastic entertaining space, offers access to the castle museum and courtyard, has an impressive original staircase; formerly the second staircase of Callaly Castle, which leads to the first floor and spacious galleried landing.

The stunning drawing room, formerly the castle library, is a real feature of the property with the fantastic high ceiling, glass atrium and attractive views of the castle gardens and beyond. The Vigilant wood burning stove is surrounded with an original decorative wood panel mantle making it the focal point of the room. Stairs lead to the mezzanine floor above, which the current owners use as a dining area and provides the opportunity to appreciate the grandeur of the drawing room below. The mezzanine continues through to a study which sits over the kitchen. The kitchen is of good size with window showing original stain glass, offering space for a substantial dining table and is fitted with a range of units, a sink, has plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and space for an oven.

A further staircase from the landing leads to the third floor which contains a fourth bedroom with en-suite bathroom and makes an ideal guest suite.

Externally

Callaly Castle can be approached from either the north or south with a tarmac drive from both directions. Both driveways sweep through the beautifully maintained grounds before reaching the impressive and striking Callaly Castle. The separate parking area, which is set away from the castle, provides parking and garaging.

The stunning gardens surround the property to all sides and can be enjoyed by all Castle residents with extensive lawns, mature trees, plants and attractive sympathetically designed flower beds. The mature woodland offers meandering walks with a variety of lakes and wildlife to enjoy; the ultimate in rural tranquillity.

3 The Park Wing has a lawned area to the front of the property and a double garage which also houses the oil tank.
