We are delighted to offer for sale this magnificent and beautiful family home, set back from The Grove, in the heart of Gosforth. This highly impressive, end-terrace, double-fronted property enjoys a beautiful location, with carefully manicured and landscaped gardens on a fabulous corner site. The property was purchased in 2008 and after 2 years of extensive renovation works, was occupied by the current owners from 2010.
The stunning house has been sympathetically restored and improved with the addition of an outstanding Bill Hopper architect-designed wing to the rear elevation, with its modern contemporary architecture and design contrasting well with the original Georgian architecture.
The property enjoys private vehicular access from Moor Road North, leading through Eastcliffe Mews into its own private gated entrance with a courtyard and drive providing parking for several cars, as well as access to an underground double-plus garage. The lower ground floor basement areas include excellent storage and cellars, as well as large utility/laundry rooms and wine cellars.
A traditional entrance vestibule and hall is the focal point to the property and leads on in turn to the first and second floors above. At ground level, the family lounge has a fabulous fireplace and bay window and leads through double doors to the outstanding kitchen which is superbly equipped and fitted with hand painted cabinets and a range of built-in cooking appliances. It leads on to a stunning reception room which has been created by Bill Hopper and is truly unique. It has a double-height glazed window with a westerly aspect overlooking a private Japanese water feature and garden, which has also been architecturally designed. The room has tremendous contrasting lighting, as well as a separate staircase leading down to the basement garage and storage cellars and the rear door to the drive and courtyard.
The formal drawing room at the front of the house has beautiful plasterwork and a stunning fireplace, as well as three sash windows. The former headmaster’s study is a very impressive reception room at the rear of the house with its unique wood panelling and its ingle nook fireplace, it provides a fabulous working office and studio. There is a ground floor WC as well as a basement WC. The principal stairs lead up to the first floor where the master bedroom suite has a delightful bedroom and dressing area leading through to the en-suite luxury bathroom with a steam shower and a fabulous bath. There are two further double bedrooms for guests at first floor level, both with their own en-suite bath or shower rooms.
