This property has to be one of the finest Victorian townhouses in the highly sought after Brandling Village, which forms part of Jesmond and offers convenient access to the centre of Newcastle by car, on foot and via the Metro and bus connections. The area boasts some of the finest architecture in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the property enjoys an outlook over Brandling Park and Town Moor beyond.
Walking along the path to the front of the house you cannot fail to be impressed by the imposing front elevation and painted timber panelled entrance door which opens to reveal 394 square metres (4,000 sq ft) of spacious accommodation, arranged over five floors. During their time at the property our clients have undertaken sympathetic improvements, including the creation of a shower room on the third floor, ensuring that the period splendour of the property has been preserved. There is a wealth of elegant features from stunning ornate cornicing and ceiling roses to fireplaces, deep moulded skirting boards and internal panelled doors. When viewing the property you will also see interesting stained glass and lead detailing to some of the windows and the internal door to the hall.
From the entrance vestibule you enter a generous and welcoming reception hall which gives access to the three principal ground floor reception rooms, the cellar and an elegant staircase which rises to the upper floors. The sitting room, located at the front aspect, features a wide full height bay window with working shutters, detailed cornicing and a beautiful fireplace. The relaxing living room overlooks the walled rear courtyard and also has an attractive fireplace. At the end of the hall there is a downstairs wc and a door connecting to the formal dining room. The dining room has a wide open fireplace set within a stone surround and is fitted with a two oven Aga. The modern well equipped kitchen is accessed directly off the dining room and is fitted with a range of contemporary wall and floor cabinets with striking work surfaces over. A wide recess houses a range style cooker with gas hob and ovens. This room has a tall pitched ceiling and attractive tiled floor which continues into the larder. From the hall, an enclosed staircase leads down to the cellar which houses the gas boiler and has two useful shelved stores.
On the first floor you will find a delightful drawing room with an impressive fireplace, floor to ceiling bay window, ornate cornicing and a view of Brandling Park and the Town Moor beyond. Bedroom two is also located on this floor and is currently used as a library, with floor to ceiling book shelving. To the rear of the first floor is a separate wc, modern wet room with shower area and a bathroom fitted with a retro style suite. From the second floor landing you have access to the master bedroom with dressing room which provides the potential to create an en suite bathroom (subject to building regulations). There are two further bedrooms and a separate shower room. The third floor accommodates three additional bedrooms and a modern shower room.
The front garden includes a calming water feature and flower borders. Leading off the enclosed courtyard you gain access to the double garage and there is additional parking on Brandling Park which requires a permit.
