Osborne Avenue, Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE2

Sold STC £795,000

Property Description

Full description

No. 7 Osborne Avenue is believed to have been originally constructed in 1876 and is a very fine example of a three storey, Victorian, double fronted, mid terraced house. The house was purchased by the current owners in the year 2000 and since that time has had further improvements and updating works carried out.

The property has a great deal of style and character, with beautiful internal panelled doors. Many of these doors have impressive finger plates and door furniture.

The entrance vestibule has a delightful internal door with etched glass leading through to the large and welcoming hall, which is a focal point at the centre of the house. From the rear of the hall there is a shower room/wc which has recently been redecorated and access to the lower ground floor cellar and wine storage.

There are four reception rooms leading from the hall; two at the front, a drawing room and a family room, both with beautiful fireplaces. At the rear there is a dining room, also with a marble fireplace and connecting from the rear hall there is a kitchen and breakfast room.

To the first floor of the house the property has four double bedrooms; two large double rooms at the front, one of which connects to an en-suite bathroom which also has its own access from the landing. The remaining two bedrooms are at the rear of the house and one lies adjacent to the second bathroom.

An enclosed staircase then connects to the second floor of the property, where a landing opens to provide a pleasant sitting area. There are two double bedrooms leading from this area, both are set within the roof slope and have Velux windows.

The house has a number of interesting building features, including the sash windows, the beautiful stained and leaded glass arched window over the three quarter landing, deep skirting boards and ornate plasterwork and cornicing. The stripped wood floors complement many of the rooms and the decoration is simple and light and sets off the elegant nature of the house and its accommodation.

The rear courtyard has an old coach house, one of the few remaining coach houses in Jesmond. It is a unique room which has been substantially refurbished by the owners with French doors, a stained glass window and old church doors. It provides a separate detached garden and living room, which could be used as a garage. It overlooks the very mature and well stocked courtyard garden, with its paving flags and whitewashed walls.

The pretty cottage garden at the front is also very well stocked with plants and bushes and tall trees which give great screening and privacy to the house. On site car parking is available at the rear, as well as the option of having the coach house as a garage. To the front there are street parking facilities for permit holders.

The house has gas radiator central heating and an alarm system.

Osborne Avenue is a very popular area of Jesmond and has close accessibility to the range of cosmopolitan shopping facilities at Acorn Road and Clayton Road. The area is also well supported by good schools and excellent recreational facilities, including cricket at the County Ground on Osborne Avenue. Jesmond Dene and its conservation area has a number of lovely walks and the area is well supported by excellent restaurants.

Many residents in this area choose the location for its quality of character and the convenience of access to the universities and hospitals.

A very elegant and well proportioned house.
