Full description

Glengairn is a magnificent detached house, set in its own private gardens and grounds in South Drive, Woolsington. Originally constructed in 1928, this property represents one of the finest detached homes available within this very well-respected area to the North West of Newcastle.
The house was purchased by the current owners in 1999 and is a fabulous family home which has continued to be updated and improved over the past 16 years. It has gas central heating, double glazing and fine accommodation within three floors.
Glengairn is situated on an exclusive tree lined private road with only 9 houses. A beautiful wrought iron railing fence and electrically operated double gates lead from the private road, to the circular block paved courtyard and driveway. There are manicured lawned gardens, with garden lighting and a separate detached double garage with electrically operated doors. The principal entrance to the house includes an impressive brick pillared portico, with an oak panelled front door and side leaded windows leading through to a fabulous large oak-panelled reception hall. The hallway is a magnificent feature and focal point of the house, incorporating a beamed ceiling, with inglenook fireplace and log burning fire. Access leads off at the rear to an under-stair cloakroom/wc.
Connecting from the main hallway, four doors lead off to principal accommodation. The drawing room is to the front and east side of the house and is an elegant room, with a semi-circular bay window, bespoke handmade furniture, dimmable spotlighting and a stunning minster stone fireplace surround with open solid fuel grate.
The dining room is to the rear aspect and is a beautiful room with solid oak wood flooring, a striking high mantled fireplace, lovely cornicing and a superb bay window overlooking the gardens. The third reception room is to the front of the house, providing a lovely family sitting room, with a semi-circular bay window and a superb marble fireplace with elaborate detailing, pillared surround and brick recess, as well as a beamed ceiling and fitted bookcases.
The last door leading from the rear of the hall connects through to the kitchen/family breakfasting room and conservatory. The kitchen was supplied by Newcastle Furniture Company and incorporates maple wood cabinets, with fully integrated domestic appliances including a top of the range Lacanche cooking range and a Fisher and Paykel American style refrigerator and freezer. The sun lounge/conservatory overlooks the rear gardens with beautiful aspect and views.
The kitchen leads on to a side entrance hall, which connects to the rear of the garden and to the north wing of the property, as well to a utility/laundry room which is fully fitted with appliances and storage cabinets.
The north wing of the property has been altered and remodelled in more recent years to create a fabulous contemporary leisure suite, with its own cloak storage space and a fabulous music/games room, under an apexed glass roof, giving super natural lighting. The room has been a very useful addition to the house as a fourth reception and connects on in turn to the gymnasium. The gymnasium was converted from the former garage and includes a large fitness area, with exposed roofing timbers and large windows overlooking the front courtyard. Access leads on separately to a freezer room, a two-person sauna and a shower room/wc, as well a general store room and a hallway which gives access to the rear gardens and hot tub.
Returning to the principal entrance hallway, the elegant period oak-panelled staircase leads up to the large and spacious first floor landing, with feature leaded window. On the first floor there are four large double bedrooms. The master bedroom is to the rear of the house, with mahogany fitted furniture and a fabulous bay window with aspect over the gardens. A door gives access to the luxury en-suite bathroom/wc, which is a superbly appointed four piece suite, including steam shower and beautiful marble surround and tiling.
There are two large double bedrooms to the front of the house, both with great views and one benefitting from fitted wardrobes. The fourth door from the landing connects to a significant large double suite, with aspects to the front, side and rear, which is currently being used as a working office and studio. These bedrooms have access to a recently refurbished family bathroom, with a high quality white four piece suite, including a walk-in shower.
A spiral staircase then connects to the second floor of the house, which provides a great teenager's den and sitting area, with open landing and access off to three very good double bedrooms. The two largest bedrooms are ideal as teenager's bedsitting rooms, with their own private study areas and feature exposed roofing timbers and beams, one with access into a private luggage and general store room. A door leads from the second floor landing to a lovely shower room/wc, which was fitted in recent times.
The gardens are a significant feature of this beautiful home and include a very large area and recreation facility to the rear and west side of the house, which has been professionally designed and landscaped for barbeques and parties. This includes a large terrace, which is very well surrounded by beautiful mature shrubs and trees. The rear garden has a variety of evergreen firs and conifers, as well as a fabulous mature willow tree and a lovely water feature. The lawned gardens are neatly trimmed and are a delightful feature of the house. The whole of the property has exterior lighting and security systems. The double garage provides access to a useful store room above, with potential to be used as a studio. There is an outbuilding to the west side of the garden with three separate storage areas, to include an outside gardener's wc and sheds.
Glengairn is a highly impressive home which is very well-located for its ease of access into local schools, leisure centres and shops, golf courses and rugby clubs. The property represents one of a small number of detached houses set back on South Drive, enjoying such convenient road access into Newcastle, Gosforth and Ponteland, as well Newcastle Airport. The local road network nearby also connects easily with the Tyne and Wear Metro serving Tyneside and Northumberland.
Viewing is strongly recommended of this beautiful home, in such a fantastic setting, with magnificent gardens and grounds.
