Full description

Montagu Lodge is located at 41 Montagu Avenue. The property has a discreet entrance amongst its neighbouring high quality residential dwellings. It has electric gates leading to a tarmacadam drive which leads up to a beautiful circular courtyard with water feature. This substantial house, which has approximately 6200sq ft of accommodation, is nestled into a garden site which extends to circa 0.8 acres and has the rare and unusual benefit of its own loose boxes and stabling, hidden behind a gated entrance with curved brick wall and provide a separate secure area to the grounds, with immediate access onto the Town Moor, making it ideal for those who ride.

The formal garden area is private and secluded, located to the rear, south and eastern elevation of the property with beautiful formal lawned areas and mature trees and boundaries giving good screening and privacy. It also has many pleasant sitting areas and patio terraces, as well as the benefit of a secure dog run and passageway with fencing, lying adjacent to the southern boundary.

The house is believed to have been built in the 1980s and was purchased by the current owners circa 2002. Since that time, many improvements have been carried out to the property.

The house has the benefit of double glazing, gas central heating, comprehensive alarm system and lovely wood flooring which features in many of the rooms at ground floor level.

The entrance is impressive with pillared surround and double doors linking to a lovely living room reception with sunken floor and feature fireplace. This area is the heart of the house and connects on to the north wing with its bedroom, as well as to the south with its main reception areas.

There is a feature double lounge measuring 36'6 x 18'10 (11.17m x 5.74m) in size, including a lovely ornamental antique open fireplace with wood flooring. A door connects on to a second double reception room, including dining room and garden room, which overlooks the magnificent gardens. The formal drawing room is also at the rear of the house and has a feature bay window and doors onto the terrace. Montagu Lodge has 5/6 separate reception areas in total.

The kitchen/breakfasting room is the homely part of the house and features a lovely contrasting arrangement of painted wood cabinets with granite tops and built-in appliances, as well as a large cooking range and a super dresser unit. The feature semi-circle bay window looks on to the courtyard, to the side of which there is a separate entrance and a boiler room. Connecting from the kitchen, is a utility and laundry room.

To the ground floor, the night passageway links to four bedroom suites, all large double rooms, the master at the front with en-suite luxury bathroom and shower and double bath with Jacuzzi. The second guest bedroom is to the rear with a walk-in en-suite bathroom with double Jacuzzi bath and shower as well as a dressing room.

The third and fourth bedrooms are good double rooms with walk-in dressing rooms and en-suite shower rooms. There is another bedroom to the ground floor but it is currently used as a gymnasium or a study and it has a walk-in sauna.

The staircase leads to the first floor where there is a fifth and sixth bedroom. The fifth is a bedroom suite with en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe and the sixth bedroom has views overlooking the gardens and is currently used as a hobbies room.

The first floor of the property is also open plan in part to create a superb living area with cocktail bar and pool playing room. It is ideal as a teenager's lounge and den and provides three good dormer windows overlooking the gardens, as well as a formal fitted cocktail bar.

Montagu Lodge is a rare and individual house settled in the centre of Gosforth with good accessibility to its High Street with its shops, banks and offices, as well as the schools nearby. Montagu Avenue is well known as one of the premier addresses in Newcastle, of which this is a fine example. The individuality of the house and the quality of its grounds as well as its site makes it particularly unusual and the feature of having its own stable box with three loose boxes is very rare indeed. The house has a substantial and significant three car garage measuring
25'11 x 25'11 (7.95m x 7.93m) with three up and over garage doors, power and lighting, showing obvious potential to have further development and conversion works to create leisure suites, swimming pools and other recreation areas if required, subject to suitable planning and building consent.

A very fine home in a beautiful area of Newcastle for which viewing is strongly recommended.
