Full description

No. 9 Darras Road is a beautiful detached family home which was designed by Napper Architects and constructed by the current owners in 2007. It has been built with a traditional appearance which contrasts with the contemporary interior, the use of modern building methods and carefully detailed design features. The property, which provides one of the largest plots within its neighbourhood at 0.658 acres, has a slate roof, walls of white render and local sandstone and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds which are well protected and screened by mature trees. The house has excellent parking to the front with access into the double garage. At the rear the garden opens up to provide a lawned area, stone and timber decking and a glazed canopy.

The house has been extremely well designed internally, with a bespoke layout to suit modern family living.

The reception hall is most welcoming and has a triple height atrium with great natural light from the windows overlooking the gardens. The travertine stone flooring and walnut skirtings are a feature throughout the ground floor and the intelligent lighting system can be mood set in the majority of rooms.

Leading from the hall is a family snug room at the front of the house, whilst to the rear there is a family room with central fireplace, from each side of which, access is gained to the dining and drawing room which enjoys an aspect to the front and rear. The stone flooring gives way to walnut here. The kitchen is at the rear of the property and is well equipped with cabinets and De Dietrich built-in appliances. Leading down from the kitchen area access is gained to the family lounge which has floor to ceiling windows and concertina doors giving great natural light and an aspect and access over the rear gardens. Walnut flooring features once again.

To the first floor of the property there are five double bedrooms all with their own en-suite bathroom or shower room facilities, dressing rooms or wardrobe space. There is a library area overlooking the rear gardens.

The stair tower then continues to the second floor where there are three further good sized rooms with potential use as additional bedrooms but which are currently being used as a study, a games room and a teenage living room from which a second staircase leads down to the first and then the ground floor.

No. 9 Darras Road is a highly impressive property which has great individual appeal and architectural style. Attention to build quality, the extensive use of underfloor heating with individual zone control, and additional insulation has resulted in an energy efficient home with a combined fuel bill of circa 160 pcm.

The property enjoys a very convenient location, with immediate access into the village of Ponteland with its excellent restaurants, shops and schools, as well as tennis club and nearby sports centre.

This is a delightful property finished to a very high standard for which viewing is strongly recommended.

The property has mains gas, electric and water services.
