The Property
59 Blackwell is a contemporary, architect-designed detached house that offers generously-proportioned living accommodation that has been designed to suit the needs of modern-day living. The well-planned and beautifully-presented interior currently offers a large five bedroom home but could easily be adapted to create a self-contained annex subject to any necessary planning consents if required. The property, situated in the sought-after Blackwell location, is finished to a high standard with contemporary fixtures and fittings includes extensive glazing which floods the house with natural light and offers stunning views over the garden, River Tees and open countryside beyond. Further benefits include fishing and boating rights.

The front door, with glazed side panels, opens into a generous entrance hall that leads into the spectacular kitchen/breakfast/living room that is arranged with extensive glazing to take full advantage of the views over the river and beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with contemporary white units and large island with complementary quartz work surfaces and walnut breakfast bar.

The breakfast bar offers an area for everyday dining and there is ample space for table and informal seating areas as desired. Off the kitchen there is an excellent utility room which gives access to the garage. Also on the ground floor is a study with large storage cupboard and a cloakroom/WC. Stairs from the hall, with full-height glazing, lead down to the receptions rooms and up to the bedrooms accommodation. On the lower ground floor there is a stunning drawing room that opens into the dining room which offer fabulous formal entertaining areas. Also on this floor is a soundproofed cinema room, cloakroom and boiler room. The basement is currently arranged to provide a games room and everyday sitting room, with glazed French doors out to the terrace and garden, together with a large cloakroom/WC. The basement floor could easily be adapted to form an independent annex if required, subject to any necessary planning consents.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms all of which benefit from en-suite facilities, two of the bedrooms are located to the rear and have river views and one has access to a balcony. There is also a laundry room off the landing which is plumbed for a washing machine. The master bedroom is located on the second floor and comprises a well-proportioned bedroom with glazed wall and doors onto a balcony and a sumptuous en-suite bathroom with double-ended freestanding bath, double in-out shower, large wash hand basin with vanity unit, WC and space for a dressing table. A further bedroom on this floor is currently used as a dressing room but could provide a further bedroom with en-suite as plumbing is in place.

Note: there is a lift shaft in place that is currently used as storage cupboards on each floor.
