Woodlands is a most impressive detached period residence. Located within convenient reach of the excellent range of amenities Low Fell has to offer and enjoying an exclusive tucked away position just off the highly regarded Brackendene Drive. Standing in mature grounds of one quarter of an acre (0.249 acre), the property was built in the early 1900s and has been extensively improved by the current owner who has undertaken a tasteful program of renovations, ensuring that much of the traditional charm and character of this wonderful home has been retained.
The front entrance opens to a most generous reception hall, with attractive flooring and an elegant staircase, featuring polished spindles, handrail and newel post, rising to the first floor accommodation. Radiating off the hall is a superb drawing room with an open fireplace, ornate coving to the ceiling, attractive flooring and a deep square bay window taking in lovely views over the garden and valley beyond. There is a single door within the bay window opening to a lovely raised sun terrace. Beyond the drawing room is the second reception room which offers great versatility and could be used as a family room or formal dining room. Again this room boasts an open fireplace, ornate coving to the ceiling, attractive flooring and a wide square bay window. At the end of the hall you reach a fabulous dining kitchen, fitted with a comprehensive range of units at wall and floor level with striking work surfaces and appliances including a range style cooker, dishwasher and fridge. From the kitchen there is access to the attached double garage. The ground floor continuing with a cloakroom/wc, a house office and rear porch giving access to the rear tiered terrace and utility/boot room. The spacious first floor landing connects to the master bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes and en suite shower room, a guest bedroom, also with en suite facilities, three further bedrooms and a stunning house bathroom fitted with a four piece suite to include a separate shower. A storage cupboard on the landing conceals loft access via a drop-down ladder. To create space for extended family living our clients have received a positive response to a pre-application enquiry from Gateshead Council. The proposal sought advice on converting the existing double garage to offer a generous living room, kitchen and a first floor bedroom with an en suite facility.
Outside, this fine family home with its brick and rendered elevations stands within attractive grounds which on the west side incorporates a flagged terrace which is perfect for dining outdoors and entertaining. Steps lead down to a formal garden with lawn and planting. On the south side of the property there is an extensive driveway which is entered through double gates and provides parking for up to eight vehicles. To the east side lies an enclosed terrace over two levels, the lower level can be approached from the kitchen and porch and the upper level provides a lovely sitting area. In addition there is also a second detached garage.
As you stroll up Belle Vue Bank from Brackendene Drive you come onto Durham Road with a range of national, local and artisan traders, bars and restaurants. Low Fell offers excellent public transport links to Newcastle City centre, schooling at primary and secondary levels as well as doctors and dental surgeries. The location is also well placed for convenient access to the A1M which provides links to Durham and Newcastle City centres, both offering mainline rail services to Edinburgh, York and London Kings Cross. For travel further afield, Newcastle International Airport is a 12 mile drive.
Woodlands is a rare find and a home to truly be proud of. Offering tremendous accommodation, beautiful gardens and enjoying a delightful setting on this prestigious road, this is a must see home that will not disappoint.
