A six bedroomed detached house including a two bedroomed lodge.South Lodge is located just to the south of the village of Boldon along Belle Vue Lane, which is a very pretty single track leading through agricultural fields to a small hamlet of four luxury houses. South Lodge was built in 1907 and occupies stunning gardens and grounds which extend to 5.47 acres. The house is Grade II listed and is a very fine example of 'Arts & Crafts' architecture. The grounds are magnificent and include a stone pillared entrance with double gates leading into the courtyard. The courtyard lies adjacent to the two bedroom cottage and lodge. The principal house includes outbuildings, garaging and store rooms. In addition to this there are five double stables, one large hay store, which are of great use to the four separate grazing paddocks, a disused tennis court and greenhouse. The principal grounds are to the southern elevation of the house, with large open lawned areas and stunning trees and rhododendrons, as well as York stone pathways, rockery beds and water garden. South Lodge is a very impressive house and its grounds are unique in its setting. It represents one of South Tyneside's finest houses and will be very much appreciated by those looking for something very special and individual. The house itself was built for grand living and in recent times has benefited from rewiring and the provision of a new plumbing system, with radiator, boiler and hot water tank. The principal hall leads to a butler's pantry and a passageway connecting to both the east and west wing of the house. The principal reception rooms include a drawing room with stone fireplace and lovely picture window. Folding doors lead through to the dining room, an elegant room with a stylish fireplace and open fire. The family room is also to the rear, with a large picture window, side door onto the garden and mahogany fireplace. The kitchen/breakfasting room has cherry wood cabinets, built-in appliances and an old cooking range set into the brick chimney breast. The kitchen leads on to a range of outbuildings and the courtyard, as well as a utility/laundry room. Planning permission has been gained for the extension of the kitchen, which has only been completed to window level. Connecting from a second entrance to the house is a billiard room which accommodates a professional billiard table. To the ground floor there is also a cloakroom/wc, a boot room and further storage space. There are two staircases; the principal staircase to the west wing leads to the first floor landing, where there are six bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom/wc and there is also a second family bathroom/wc/ The stairs then continue to the second floor where there is a further attic and store room. The property has high ceilings, lovely cross leaded windows, cornice detailing and lovely windows with stone mullion surrounds. The separate lodge provides two bedrooms, although one is currently used as a sitting room and large family/kitchen room with Aga, as well as a separate shower room/wc. It was refurbished 10 years ago and is in good order, with beautiful feature windows and modern central heating and wiring systems. The lodge has its own private garden area and terraces. South Lodge is located in a very prestigious area of Boldon, which enjoys good accessibility into Cleadon, Whitburn and Sunderland, as well as Newcastle and Durham. This is a very special property in a fabulous area.
