6 bedroom detached house for saleThe Grove, Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne
Sold STC £1,500,000
Grosvenor House was constructed in 1831 and is understood to have originally been built for Lord Armstrong and his estate. It provides one of Newcastle’s finest architectural designs for a single residential dwelling. It is a majestic Grade II listed period property which towers above its neighbours boasting a tall buttresses roof, fabulous chimney stacks and beautiful external detailing of the windows which are stone mullion.
The property has been sympathetically restored to its former glory as a stunning family home. Grosvenor House offers a standard of living rarely seen within Newcastle’s boundaries. It is more synonymous with country houses and large estates and yet has the conservation area of Jesmond Dene on its doorstep.
Grosvenor House is indeed very special and is surrounded by South facing gardens and grounds that are highly impressive. The property is accessed by a private road on The Grove, of which the neighbouring coach house is allowed access only at the entrance. It boasts superb private car parking facilities and the site offers a good deal of privacy and screening surrounded by a high hedge boundary and a number of mature trees. Its restoration over recent years is highly impressive and it is obvious to see how the owners have committed time, energy and considerable expenditure to recreate such an elegant and luxurious style of living.
The principal reception rooms are truly stunning showcasing beautiful cornicing, ceiling roses and cross beamed plaster work. Further features within these rooms include fabulous fireplaces with open fires and elaborately detailed grates. The accommodation to the property recreates very fine living with its rear entrance hall and inner hall leading to a cloakroom/w.c. The inner hall and staircase connect to three principal reception rooms; a drawing room, a dining room and a library all of which provide stunning proportions and grandeur. An inner hall and passage way connect to a study, a large laundry and utility room and a second entrance hall. The family day-to-day living areas connect from the west wing where there is a breakfasting room, a fabulous orangery (built by Vale Garden House in 2012) and magnificent kitchen with state of the art cabinets, Corian worktops and a vast array of Siemens appliances. The fabulous orangery provides a beautiful addition to the kitchen and breakfasting room. The central double doors are panelled and glazed and lead out to the south facing garden and terrace. Without doubt the orangery is a magnificent addition to the house and one of the most stunning features of the property.
A staircase leads to the basement where there are two large barrel vaulted rooms, one with the original wine shelving. In recent times the basement has undergone tanking and refurbishment and offers scope for a miscellany of uses.
Returning to the main hall, the splendid stairwell is highly impressive, featuring a beautiful oak handrail and enjoying natural light from the hall landing window. The first floor landing extends to both the east and west wing of the house. At first floor level there are six bedrooms, two of which have very substantial dressing rooms with the master bedroom lying adjacent to the shower room and wet room. The family bathroom is a stunning room with state of the art design and lighting. The sixth bedroom could easily be a third bathroom to the house, with plumbing available beneath the floorboards for any potential bathroom conversion.
The property has also undergone extensive re-wiring work as well as the installation of a Viessmann gas fired central heating system. Further improvements have been made by the addition of double glazing set into wooden frames, compliant with listed building regulations.
Grosvenor House offers great versatility and will have both regional and national appeal. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate its splendour and all that is has to offer.
