Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

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 lighting.

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 family,
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.
