6 bedroom country house for saleHalton Grange, Wall, Hexham,NE46
- Suitable for equestrian pursuits
Halton Grange was constructed in 1913 and was purchased by the current owners in 2008. It provides one of the most stunning country homes we have had the pleasure of marketing in the Tyne Valley. In recent times the house has been extensively renovated with considerable time spent working with national and regional suppliers to create one of the most impressive homes within the region. The property has been extensively remodelled, refurbished and improved to create this magnificent large family house.
Wall is a beautiful village in the county of Northumberland which enjoys good accessibility to the nearby market town of Hexham, as well as the very popular village of Corbridge. The Military Road and the A69 link Wall into Newcastle, with its International Airport and its large city support functions. There is also a rail connection close by, giving good access into Newcastle.
The house itself is situated in impressive gardens and grounds, which extend to 12.5 acres, including two grazing paddocks. The views to the west overlooking surrounding countryside are stunning and the open grounds will easily accommodate a helicopter, as well as having the magnificent gardens and private sitting areas, its water feature and pond, its all weather tennis court, its orchard and its formal gardens.
There are an extensive arrangement of stables, a professional workshop and outbuildings. The property is suitable for Equestrian pursuits.
The house itself has dramatically altered since 2004, when a very substantial leisure suite was added to the main home, connecting via a games room and involving the restoration and refurbishment of the old garage house and Halton Grange Cottage. The cottage includes a one bedroomed annexe apartment with a fully integrated and well fitted kitchen, a shower room and a lounge. It is ideal for independent relatives and live in staff.
The main house has a very high standard of interior design, supported by New England Interiors of Gosforth, using simple colours and shades to complement the beautiful lighting within the rooms.
The double glazed windows have lovely views over the surrounding gardens.
The entrance hall has a super fireplace and snug area; it leads to a garden room and conservatory. The three formal reception rooms include a drawing room, sitting room and dining room, all impeccably presented, the latter having handmade craftsman furniture by Edwin Loxley of Nottingham.
The kitchen/breakfasting room is magnificent. Influenced by a Perthshire designer and supplied by Mark Wilkinson, of national reputation, this hand painted cream kitchen is stunning. It has black granite worktops and fabulous built-in appliances supplied by Miele and Gaggenau, as well as a four oven aga. The kitchen is divided between a breakfasting area and the family living area, which are all fully integrated and fitted with dresser, cabinets and furniture, as well as glazed doors leading out onto the western facing courtyard and gardens.
The laundry room has six built-in freezers and two walk-in cold rooms; one being a pantry, the other a wine store, and both being thermostatically controlled.
The games room links the main house to the leisure suite and also has a travertine stone floor with storage space and access to the east and west of the house.
At first floor level a large landing and professionally fitted study by Newcastle Furniture Company connect to five bedrooms, all of which have handmade furniture and fabulous views over the private grounds. The master bedroom has a stunning bathroom/wc with roll top bath and double shower. The four remaining bedrooms have access to two bathrooms, both of an extremely high standard; the second bathroom having a magnificent oval bath, as well as a double shower.
The leisure suite provides one of the finest that we have viewed in the north of England. It is a very large room, constructed by a specialist architect. The pool itself extends to 39'6 x 17'3 with an infinity style look, Greek stone floors, electrically operated cover and a semi circular Jacuzzi set to the side. This very large entertainment room, with recreation and gymnasium area leads to professional changing rooms, which in turn lead to a Jacuzzi steam room, shower, solarium and separate cloakroom/wc.
Above the leisure suite is a first floor mezzanine and cocktail bar with professionally fitted kitchen and lounge area. The whole of this room is quite magnificent, with electrically operated Velux windows, state of the art air circulation and heating controls and outstanding lighting.
The outbuildings include a professional workshop, as well as the stable block and water recycling plant for the garden use. The gardens have extensive water supply, power and lighting.
Halton Grange is a very special property and surely one of the finest homes in the north of England. It is a rare find within a beautiful part of Northumberland, quite discreet and private, yet with a luxury rarely seen outside of the city of London.
