Guide Price £735,000

Property Description

Full description

The Directors House is believed to date back originally to the late 19th century and is understood to have been part of the Armstrong Estate, and later the Lord Noble estate tied into Jesmond Dene House. The Directors House is a fabulous detached two storey property, designed in a cottage style with overhanging eaves, lovely dormer windows, under a pantiled roof and beautiful oriel bays.

The property was purchased by the current owners in 1992 and occupies a superb garden site just off Jesmond Dene Road and shares the same entrance as that of Jesmond Dene House Hotel. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and include a variety of flowers, bushes and shrubs as well private sitting areas and terraces including a small water feature. The tall, mature trees frame the site extremely well and the high stone boundary wall to the south gives great security and privacy.

The area surrounding the Directors House is owned by the local authority, and it is understood that this area of land is soon to come to the market for sale and will form a significant redevelopment opportunity, most likely for high quality luxury housing. The adjacent outbuildings and stable block near to the Directors House is also believed to be made available for sale in the near future and could also form part of a residential mixed use development or possibly be linked to the hotel, which is one of the finest hotels in the North East of England.

The Directors House is a most unusual and unique property and provides a very rare opportunity within the housing market in the heart of Jesmond to acquire such a magnificent property with such attractive gardens and in such a protected area of Jesmond Dene, as well as it being a conservation area.

The house shows obvious potential for extending, updating and renovation and there is a significant area of land to the rear and side of the property which would create an ideal location to potentially double the size of the existing house.

This property has great style and character and its existing accommodation includes a hall, sitting room and a dining room both with fireplaces and a small kitchen to the rear with a walk-in pantry. There is a range of outbuildings connected by a rear porch and these could easily be converted into further accommodation and remodelled if required.

To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bedrooms all have great views overlooking the gardens and the house has the benefit of gas radiator central heating.

The Directors House is an extremely unusual and rare property within the suburbs of Newcastle. The conservation area of Jesmond Dene with its beautiful walks, are literally on the door step and the fine dining and first class restaurant and bar facilities of the hotel next door are a significant benefit.

Jesmond Dene Road links into the heart of Jesmond with Osborne Road including its schools and shops as well as the Metro serving the area.

The redevelopment of La Sagesse school is creating high class luxury housing and this site lies adjacent to the property.

This is a superb opportunity to acquire such an unusual and very special family home.
