For families seeking a property that meets the needs of several generations, or simply those who enjoy space and luxury, Woodside Cottage is a super stylish home on a spectacular scale. Its smart yet modest exterior belies the extensive accommodation beyond, the high quality of its interior and several special features that make it a stand-out property. As its name suggests, it lies in a semi-rural setting with woodland walks within metres yet within easy commuting of both Newcastle and Durham. One of just four exclusive homes, it enjoys an elevated position with different levels adding interest to the interior layout and garden. In addition to the five-bedroom, three bathroom main house, there is a self-contained first floor annex, with plenty of scope to extend the property further if required, subject to consent.

Built in 1990, Woodside Cottage has undergone considerable extension and upgrading to an exceptional standard. The 4,000sq ft of accommodation is principally on the ground floor, incorporating living, sleeping and leisure facilities, while two large double bedrooms with dormer windows and fitted wardrobes, and a bathroom, occupy the characterful first floor. A contemporary pillared entrance leads into a stylish hallway with solid wood flooring and on to three reception rooms - a formal dining room with a marble tile floor, a living room with a limestone fire surround and a fabulous gin-gan style family room, open plan to the kitchen and benefiting from air conditioning and under-floor heating.
The high vaulted ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows create a light, bright space that's elevated from the exceptional contemporary kitchen. Large enough to accommodate a centre island with breakfast bar and dining area, with high gloss units, black granite worktops and integrated appliances, it's as practical as it is desirable. A superb home for entertaining, French doors lead from both the living room and the family room out to the garden and raised terraces that are perfect for drinks and dining. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and an outstanding master suite incorporating a large bedroom with French doors, separate dressing area with fitted furniture and a luxury en suite. A stunning, fully tiled family bathroom with free-standing contemporary bath and basin with walk-in drench shower offers the height of luxury.

A unique and unexpected feature of the impressive interior is a ground floor leisure room. It boasts an Elite endless pool and atmospheric mood lighting, with advanced technology including a heat recovery fresh air and dehumidification system. The property has a oversized double garage with electric doors. Full advantage has been taken of this separate building to provide very comfortable living accommodation on the first floor, accessed by a separate entrance and staircase. Its attractive bedroom and en suite bathroom could be ideal for a nanny, guests, a teenager or other relative who would enjoy independent living. It would also make an ideal home office.

The property is approached via a well maintained, private Tarmac drive with a walled garden with lawn and shrubs to the front and a woodland outlook. The landscaped, planted gardens at the rear are south facing and provide an extremely pleasant place to sit. No expense has been spared in the presentation, fixtures and fittings used throughout this luxury property, with added security provided by a CCTV system and plentiful external lighting. Burnopfield sits within the catchment area of one of the region's leading secondary schools - Emmanuel College, Gateshead - which has been judged outstanding for its entire 26-year history.
