Full description

A highly imposing Grade II Listed country house with a 5 bedroomed principle wing, 3 bedroomed independent coach house and extensive outbuildings. This beautiful country house is set in 2.5 acres of manicured grounds with a tennis court and development potential to divide into three homes if required.

Lintz Green House, near Rowlands Gill, occupies a fabulous private site which extends to around 2.5 acres. This highly impressive Grade II listed house was originally built circa 1828, although part of its adjoining coach house and other outbuildings date back to 1740 and perhaps even earlier.

The property was purchased by the current owner in the mid-1990s and over that time has been greatly improved and altered, especially in recent years.

The house provides very fine country living with period rooms and beautiful windows, the front southern elevation of which is protected with operational shutters. The internal stripped-wood doors, with lovely brass furniture, are highly impressive and the principal rooms have good decoration with beautiful period fireplaces.

The initial approach to Lintz Green House is highly impressive, with a tree lined tarmacadam driveway leading up to the principal courtyard of the house itself. On the western approach to the drive there is a lawned tennis court, which has been well kept and nurtured over many years.

The raised private gardens of the house include a pillared entrance, with circular drive surrounding a feature stone water fountain. The lawned gardens are well supported by superbly stocked flower and shrub borders and the driveways leading to both the eastern and western elevations of the house include have their own garages with excellent storage space.

Entry to the property is through a stunning panelled front door, with semi-circular glazing above and a fabulous period sundial which dates back to the property's construction in 1828. The beautiful light oak panelled reception hall branches off into a t-shape at the rear and has super aspect and views overlooking the gardens and private grounds, with a period minster stone fireplace and coal burning fire. Doors lead from the hallway to the principal reception rooms and a separate cloakroom/wc.

Lintz Green House currently provides four reception rooms including the sitting room, an impressive reception area with beautiful wall paper decoration, open period log burning fire, stripped-wood flooring and two windows overlooking the front gardens with shutters. The sitting room provides hatch access into the cellars, which stretch beneath two rooms to the principal property and the cottage, providing an excellent wine cellar and general storage.

The elegant dining room is also to the front aspect, featuring lovely stripped-wood floor, two windows, painted wood panelling and a super open fireplace. The west wing provides access to the study/library, newly decorated with library book case and stone fireplace.

The large family kitchen breakfast room to the rear of the house is a particularly attractive room, well-equipped and fitted with cream cabinets, black granite work tops, Belfast sink and a six oven AGA with two hot plates and separate electric hob. The stone flooring is an excellent feature and the extension, providing a lovely breakfasting area, leads and overlooks the rear garden and terraces. Access leads on to a useful utility room with excellent storage space.

The elegant oak wood staircase leads up to the first floor landing, with access on to an enclosed staircase leading up to the attic store rooms with excellent storage space as well as further living space if required. Access leads from the first floor landing to the family bathroom and all five bedrooms.

The master bedroom provides a beautiful southerly aspect through two windows with operational shutters. The room is beautifully decorated with fitted wardrobes and access to the en-suite Jack-and-Jill style luxury shower room. The second bedroom includes two windows to the southern elevation, with fitted wardrobes, period fireplace and access to the Jack-and-Jill style en-suite shower room.

The third bedroom is situated to the front, south facing aspect, with operational shutters and an en-suite shower room and the fourth bedroom is to the rear of the property, with fitted raised up bunk bed, storage shelving and study desk, ideal for children. The fifth bedroom is to the rear aspect, a further double room with lovely aspect over gardens.

The property has two oil central heating systems, along with a high-capacity quick-recovery hot water cylinder and a comprehensive alarm system.

The middle wing of the property is a separate independent coach house, providing a lovely home for an independent relative or visitors. The middle coach house enjoys its own private entrance, three bedrooms, a very attractive sitting room, dining hall and garden room. There is a large kitchen/breakfasting room which leads on to the range of outbuildings to the rear and side of the house, incorporating snooker room, hobbies room, gymnasium and various storage areas which could easily be adapted for a variety of different uses.

This fine country home has beautifully manicured gardens which include tall trees and lovely open lawned areas, as well as fabulous walks and paths. The formal gardens are very well kept with beautifully stocked flower and shrub borders and are very private and secluded with beautiful sitting areas and patios terraces. A beech hedge boundary divides the working and kitchen garden areas and the greenhouse. There is also a fence enclosed sports area, ideal for football and ball games.

The range of outbuildings show obvious potential to be retained as they are, since they bear the original resemblance of the coach and stable block however, they could equally be developed to create a new and separate dwelling. The outbuildings have their own independent access from the side drive and private garden areas. The potential for them to be an independent property is very evident.

Lintz Green House is conveniently located for its ease of access into the Tyne Valley, as well as the A1 linking through the Western Bypass and surrounding Tyneside. Both the Newcastle and Durham train stations, along with Newcastle Airport, are within close proximity. There is very convenient accessibility to a wide variety of walks and beautiful areas of historic interest. The location is ideal for walking cycling and riding, with liveries close by and cycle way within 100 yards.

This is a fine home in such a quality location, for which internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate.
