Believed to have been originally constructed circa 1905 and occupying a magnificent site within Jesmond Park East on the corner of Melbury Road is this outstanding detached luxury house.
The property was purchased by the present owner in 1976. The beautiful gardens and grounds are enclosed within a brick wall boundary with large mature trees giving privacy and seclusion.
The whole site extends to circa 0.658 acres.
To the western boundary of the house the former grounds of Mancroft are currently subject to a planning application to create luxury housing.
The property has stunning grounds with fabulous mature trees and rhododendrons giving delightful colour in season.
The house benefits from a number of outstanding features. The windows are particularly impressive with stone mullions and stained and leaded glass. The main entrance is delightful - a stone archway surrounds the beautiful panelled door, and there is an elaborate external lantern light.
The main accommodation to the property comprises:
Entrance vestibule leading to the magnificent hall with oak solid wood flooring, impressive fireplace and beautiful panelled solid oak internal doors with fabulous brass and copper finger plates and door furniture.
From the main hall one gains access to three impressive reception rooms, a drawing room, family sitting room and a dining room. The dining room benefits from beautiful oak panelling and an Inglenook fireplace. Leading from the hall is a cloakroom with separate wc, utility room, kitchen and family breakfast room, which has hand painted cabinets and built-in appliances as well as a four-oven Aga. From this area access is gained to the second rear staircase as well as a laundry room.
To the first floor the magnificent staircase and landing provide a beautiful focal point to the house. The first floor landing connects to four double bedrooms, the master with a beautiful west facing Inglenook and a lovely view to the south. The master bedroom leads to an en suite dressing room, presently used as a study. One bedroom has an en suite shower room and two other double bedrooms have lovely views over the gardens. The second bedroom has a stunning fireplace and a beautiful semi-circular bay window. The main family bathroom/wc has been refurbished recently to a very high standard, including an oval bath and a walk-in wet room.
The second staircase gives access to the second floor of the property where there are two further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and a separate wc.
Nook House offers a very high standard of accommodation within a mature residential area of Newcastle. Its location and ease of access to Jesmond Dene are enviable. Good transport services connect to the city centre as well as the Coast Road linking to other parts of northern Tyneside.
This is a stunning property situated in beautiful grounds and is certainly one of the finest residential houses within the north of England.
The property has mains gas, electric and water services.
