Property description & features

  • Substantial Grade II Listed Period Home with an Abundance of Period Charm
  • Extensive Lawned Gardens
  • Impressive Drawing Room, Beautiful Orangery, Snug/Study, Re-Fitted Kitchen/Diner & Cellar
  • No Onward Chain

Whickham Park House is a substantial, Grade II Listed family residence that occupies the East and principal wing of the property and is perfectly placed within 0.6 Acres of its own private grounds and gardens and is accessed via a private driveway. The original body of this imposing and historical home dates back to the mid-17th century.

This superb residential property is ideally positioned within the desirable village of Whickham and is perfectly placed, only a stone’s throw from Front Street, offering direct access to the shops, cafes, restaurants and amenities, outstanding local schooling and excellent transport links offering easy access into Newcastle City Centre and beyond.

This wonderful period property is renowned for once being owned by a Mr Charles Attwood who purchased the property around 1825 and was highly regarded as a prosperous reformist and ironmaster who formed the Weardale Iron & Coal Company back in 1844.

The property was purchased by the current family in the late 1980s and has since been sympathetically restored over the past 35 years and now offers the rare opportunity to purchase one of the original period family homes of Whickham.

Whickham Park House offers a lovely stone entrance with new wrought iron railings and secure gates that lead to a large front garden that is now laid out as a driveway and circular gravelled turning/parking area.

Boasting over 4,000 Sq ft of internal living space, the accommodation comprises : Lobby - Guest cloakroom and WC with doors to the lobby and reception hall- Impressive reception hallway which measures 47ft in length, with original stained glass picture window, two original fireplaces, sweeping staircase leading to the first floor and doors leading to a silver cupboard and to the cellar - The reception hall then leads though to a magnificent orangery/garden room with travertine stone flooring and doors leading out to the gardens and back through to the drawing room.

The drawing room was added later, and it is thought to have been constructed in the early 20th century. This impressive reception room measures 27ft in length and enjoys a large bay window which overlooks the front and gardens with decorative ceiling, detailed cornicing and beautiful period fireplace - Study/snug, again with decorative ceiling, original marble fireplace, fitted storage, south and east facing windows and door leading to the kitchen.
Re-fitted kitchen/dining room with fitted cabinetry, granite worktops, integrated appliances, new range cooker, central island with breakfast bar and door leading to the front terrace and gardens.

The stairs then lead up to the first floor landing and then onto three double bedrooms - Bedroom one offers an original fireplace with fitted storage to the alcoves and south facing windows with views over the gardens and access to an en-suite shower room with three piece suite - Bedroom two also offers a period fireplace with south and east facing windows and fitted storage - Bedroom three is placed to the rear and is another comfortable double room with bay window, fireplace and fitted storage to the alcoves - Family bathroom with four piece suite.

The stairs then continue up to the second floor and onto three further double bedrooms, two with fireplaces and all with fitted storage - Second family bathroom with four piece suite - Kitchenette, which is ideal for those with older children or for those with visiting family or live in help.

Externally, the property enjoys an enviable position and plot with extensive private gardens that are posited to the east and north of the property which extend to approximately 0.6 of an acre and offer an abundance of mature planted borders, large front garden and gravelled parking area with circular driveway. The rear/side gardens are laid predominantly to lawn with well stocked borders and fenced boundaries.

Planning Approval has been granted for the construction of a double garage and plans are available for inspection via the office or on the planning portal (Ref. No: DC/19/00865/Ful)

Well-presented throughout, with timber sliding sash windows and a recently replaced gas boiler, this is an excellent opportunity and early internal inspections are strongly advised to fully appreciate the quality and size of this beautiful and historical period residence.
