5 bedroom detached house for sale
Saltwell Road South, Low Fell, Gateshead, NE9
The property has been extensively renovated, with a beautiful slate roof and replacement sash windows with double glazed panes. The paintwork, both internally and externally complements the period and era of this fine home. The entrance leads through a vestibule to the main hall with fireplace. The dining room is at the front with a stunning bay window, window seat and fireplace. The sitting room is at the rear, also with a fireplace. The principal drawing room (formerly the ballroom) has stunning sash windows and a fireplace. All of the principal reception rooms have oak herringbone wood flooring and lovely decoration.
The kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the house and connects on to what was formerly the mews and has now been completely re-built. The rebuilding of the kitchen and orangery has provided a magnificent wing to the house at the rear. The architectural styling and detailing of the construction is superb, with reclaimed brickwork and tall windows, giving tremendous character to the rooms. Both the kitchen and the orangery gain further natural light from the lantern ceiling. The kitchen is in the process of being finished internally and buyers will have the choice of what cabinets and styling they would like to see installed. It leads off to a cloakroom/wc and a boiler room and utility. The orangery has six large windows and five sets of doors leading onto the stunning terraces. The kitchen also has its own access onto these gardens and the whole space is superb.
To the first floor of the house there are five bedrooms; four large doubles and one large single. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower room and the others have access to a family bathroom/wc with roll top cast iron feature bath and separate double shower. There is scope for a third bathroom if required by reducing one of the large double rooms to a smaller double and creating another bathroom.
The house has a second brand new gas fired central heating system, solely for the zoned underfloor heating with underfloor heating to the ground floor. The other rooms have radiators with individual thermostats. The whole of the property has been rewired with modern electric circuit breaker controls. The house has double glazed and is beautifully decorated in heritage colouring.
Orchard House has the further benefit of magnificent gardens and grounds, certainly one of the largest within the area. Its impressive gated entrance leads through stone pillars and a stone boundary wall to the majestic tree lined driveway which leads up to the courtyard and entrance of the house. The gardens include many tall trees and evergreens which give privacy and screening throughout the year. The principal recreation garden is set out to the south to the open lawned areas, with flower and shrub borders. The rear gardens are stunning and have a stone rockery bed. The rear courtyard opposite the orangery and kitchen has newly constructed stone walls, with original reclaimed brick based terrace for the summer months.
Orchard House is a very special home and a great opportunity for prospective buyers to acquire a property where they can personalise their own kitchen.
Low Fell has a number of high quality homes, but this is certainly one of its finest, with good accessibility into Durham Road, the Metro Centre and the Team Valley Trading Estate. It links easily into Newcastle and the much improving Gateshead centre.
We are delighted to offer for sale this magnificent home.
