Derwent Lodge is a magnificent detached property, built in 1867, and lying in a conservation area with direct access to the River Derwent, including fishing rights. The décor and presentation is stylish with a refined, traditional finish throughout, while the property boasts extensive grounds and an enviable location.
Whilst surrounded by stunning countryside, the house is within easy reach of Shotley Bridge village, the Tyne Valley and Gateshead. The property boasts five bedrooms and a two bedroom annexe, plus a games room, which could be converted to an additional bedroom.
On the ground floor there is an array of reception rooms for both formal and informal occasions, including the impressive drawing room, an elegant sitting room, a family room, a formal dining room and a conservatory, plus a play room/dining room and study/lounge in the annexe. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with attractive cream units and solid wood worktops, plus an Aga and an informal dining space. There is a second kitchen in the annexe.
The bedrooms are all generously proportioned, and there are two spacious family bathrooms to the first floor of the main house, and a further bathroom in the annexe.
The property lies in a conservation area beside the River Derwent, just outside the popular village of Shotley Bridge, which is convenient for the Tyne Valley, Gateshead and Newcastle. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and with direct access to the river, the property is well placed for enjoying the country life, while also being within easy reach of local amenities.
Shotley Bridge has several shops, pubs, restaurants and a local primary school, while the Metrocentre is less than 12 miles away. Rail services are available from Stocksfield, Newcastle upon Tyne and Durham, while the A1(M) is within easy reach.
The property is set in beautiful and extensive g rounds with the River Derwent flowing along the western boundary. There is plenty of parking space surrounding the property, while there is a large garage located in one of the property’s outbuildings. Further to the garage, there is a stables complex with an enclosed courtyard, a wood store and a large greenhouse. Previous planning permission has been in place to convert to a two bedroom annexe (now lapsed). Plans are available for viewing upon request.
The gardens surrounding the property are enchanting and plentiful, with split level lawns, footpaths, terraces, an ornamental Victorian pond and beautifully maintained flower beds, all surrounded by mature trees. As the garden extends towards the river there is a wooded area, a meadow, and large paddocks for grazing. Fishing rights are owned on the River Derwent.
