With outstanding accommodation approaching 7,000 square feet and coming
to the market for the first time in 20years, this is a fabulous opportunity to
acquire a very impressive house which has been extensively remodelled,
refurbished and improved with private gardens and grounds.
The Granary was originally constructed in the late nineteenth century
and was the Granary to the original Callerton Home Farm. The property has since
been extensively redeveloped by the present owner and now provides a stunning
luxury mansion, set back and very private from this most sought after
prestigious address of Runnymede Road.
The gardens and grounds extend to circa three quarters of an acre and
include an orchard at the front and a substantial private garden and recreation
area at the rear. The tar macadam drive with access through electric gates
gives parking for many cars and leads to a double garage with external
The extensive remodelling and refurbishment of The Granary has created a
luxurious home with a considerable amount of style and character. The main wing
of the house, which was completed most recently is stunning and undoubtedly
provides as its focal point, a magnificent entrance reception hall and stunning
oak staircase with oak flooring, architraves, skirting and doors, as well as
beautiful lighting and windows overlooking the terrace and gardens.
Leading from the entrance hall is a very substantial study and office
which also connects to the garage. The principal reception rooms to the ground
floor include a drawing room with lovely views over the gardens, a family room
with lovely fireplace and passageways leading to the staircase which connects
to the first floor. The garden room also has a lovely aspect to the west
overlooking the gardens and approach to the house. A glazed passageway connects
from the conservatory to a dining room and kitchen which is very well appointed
with a range of Sheraton supplied cabinets with cream fronted doors, granite
work surfaces and built-in appliances. There is also a utility room and a
ground floor shower room/wc with useful cloak store cupboards. There are three
staircases connecting to the first floor of the house, enabling the accommodation
to be divided into separate wings if required.
The principal impressive hall wing of the house with its magnificent bespoke
oak staircase constructed by Theresa Spinks, leads to a landing which links into the self contained
apartment above the garage, as well as to the master bedroom suite. The master
bedroom is delightful with solid wood flooring, lovely windows and an extensive
glass wall with three sets of double doors leading on to its own private
balcony which is south facing. The en-suite bathroom/wc is luxuriously
appointed with a five piece suite and beautiful tiling and lighting. The
original Granary accommodates a further three double bedrooms along with an
en-suite bathroom/wc and a range of fitted cabinets and wardrobes. The other
two double bedrooms have access to a family bathroom/wc. The self contained one
bedroom apartment above the double garage does provide a fifth bedroom to the
house if required, with en-suite bathroom, as well as its own kitchen and
sitting room. An external staircase connects from here to the side of the
garage. The versatile layout could accommodate different generations of a
The house has beautiful interior decoration, with lovely lighting and
the carpets and furnishings all having been replaced in recent times. The entry
telephone system linking to the main entrance doors is protected with security
cameras and also has very attractive lighting throughout the grounds.
The Granary is a highly impressive property which is situated within
Darras Hall’s most prestigious address of Runnymede Road. It has good
accessibility into the Broadway and local shopping facilities, as well as
excellent restaurants. Ponteland is a lovely village with central church and
green and links easily into Newcastle via the Woolsington bypass. Newcastle’s
international airport is also close by.
This is a delightful luxurious home.
