The Manor House at Holywell is a fine gentleman’s residence situated in the heart of this popular village close to the thriving financial centres of the north east with about 6.3 acres of land including the historic “Holy Well” from which the village takes its name.

The property is central within the village and yet has a prime country house feel. Inside the formal reception rooms have extremely comfortable and generous proportions.

The kitchen and other domestic offices have been beautifully modernised by the owners to ensure maximum comfort and luxurious modern day living in this classic and ancient house.

A good example of how the property has been improved by the occupants are the double glazed hard wood timber windows and the Portuguese limestone floor from the front door, laundry room and staircase hall into the dining kitchen. The drawing room is a magnificent room with a high ceiling, a south facing aspect and superb Amdega conservatory with under floor heating.

The farmhouse style dining kitchen has a deep red 4-oven gas-fired Aga, polished granite work surfaces and hardwood base units. There is an extremely comfortable sitting room beyond the kitchen known as the morning room by the vendors. It has a gas-fired stove set within an impressive arched inglenook fireplace. The ceilings are beamed and generous in height.

The study is discreetly located beyond the morning room and has the benefit of a door to the outside, ideal for a doctor or other practising professional who may have to take house calls.

The south facing bedroom accommodation on the first floor is all arranged off a central passageway and landing. The master bedroom has a luxurious en suite bathroom. The guest room is situated at the far end of the house, also with an opulent en suite bathroom. There are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Holywell Livery Yard

Holywell Riding School and Yard forms part of the sale. The yard comprises 16 loose boxes with various assorted stores, WCs, tack room and feed areas. The hub of the yard is the modern indoor riding school (36m x 21.4m x 4.8m high) building which is lit with efficient lighting, double sliding doors and a viewing gallery. There is a modern barn adjoining the school.

The Yard has an independent access from the Holywell Dene Road and independent access on to the paddock land. The Yard has been carefully laid out to allow for privacy, security and logistics.

Holywell is a popular rural village ideally positioned close to all local amenities, good schooling and transportation with two metro stations within 2 miles and easy access by road to the coast, the A19 and Newcastle city centre. There is a local village first school, a newsagent and two popular traditional English inns with bags of character and charm. There are golf courses at nearby Whitley Bay and Tynemouth.

Remote operated double gates give access off the village lane directly into a parking area and in turn to the garage (5.8m x 10.05m) with remote operated oak door. The garage has a concrete floor and power is laid on. A second garage or store beyond measures 5.8m x 2.74m.
