Tenure: Freehold

Woodside House is the perfect combination of period property with the luxury and layout for a 21st century family. Extended three times and refurbished throughout, it offers a superb and spacious detached family home of five bedrooms, three reception rooms and self-contained annex accommodation set in stunning established gardens extending to just under an acre. All the best features of its Victorian origins have been retained, from the molded cornicing to deep skirting boards, the tiled porch and lantern room to parquet flooring, while recent renovations have enhanced the property to bring in natural light and add comforts such as contemporary bathrooms and a fabulous orangery. The ground floor layout is excellent for parties centring on the fabulous breakfasting kitchen with underfloor heating and Velux windows. This stunning space is equipped with entertaining in mind: two ovens, a steam oven, microwave oven, an induction hob and two dishwashers all integrated within beautiful timber units, plenty of marble workspace and a tiled floor. French doors open out to the garden and double doors lead through to the beautifully presented, open plan dining room and comfortable living room which has a bay window to the front and a feature fireplace. The orangery is also accessed from here, creating a superb entertaining space that can be extended outdoors to a large paved patio area. Across the hall is a family room with parquet flooring. As well as a utility room inside the house, additional outbuildings provide a laundry room and workshop. The first floor is reached via a wide staircase from the reception hallway leading to a light and airy landing and four double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities. The master bedroom has a fitted vanity unit, spa bath, and shower, as does the contemporary family bathroom which features a steam shower, double size spa bath and integrated television. The second floor is dedicated to providing exceptional, private owners' accommodation with an elegant bedroom with ceiling beams, a separate dressing room and full size bathroom. The annex is reached via an outdoor staircase to the first floor of a detached triple garage and offers a double bedroom with a balcony and en suite bathroom, kitchenette and lounge, ideal for an independent relative, older teenager or for letting. Approach to Woodside House is through an electric gated entrance onto a Tarmac drive that leads to extensive parking and a triple garage with electric roller doors. The house is surrounded by landscaped gardens with mature trees, planted borders, lawns and pathways providing year-round interest and sunshine and shade in equal measure. Beyond are meadows and woods with plenty of walks on the doorstep. Although it provides the rural idyll, Woodside House is also excellent for commuting to the region's centres of Newcastle, Durham, and Chester le Street in approximately 20 minutes.
