The Property
Nursery House is a handsome property that was formed from the west-facing north wing of the magnificent Grade II* Listed Palladian mansion Bradley Hall; it was in fact the conversion and subsequent sale of the north wing and the stables into houses, cottages and maisonettes that saved the main hall. Bradley Hall, thought to have been designed by the renowned architect James Paine, was built around 1750 with the north wing added late in the eighteenth century. The properties have all been sensitively converted, with Nursery House - named because it formerly housed the nursery, kitchen and servants' quarters - now offering a substantial four-bedroomed house. The property which sits in the popular Tyne Valley is close to the desirable village of Wylam and all the amenities it has to offer. The property retains a wealth of period features including sash windows, original shutters, panelled doors, high ceilings, pictures rails and decorative cornicing. The generously-proportioned accommodation is flooded with natural light from tall windows, with all rooms enjoying glorious views over the private walled garden.

A half-glazed front door with glazed fanlight above opens into a bright and welcoming reception hall which has stairs to the first floor, fabulous parquet flooring and a useful under stairs cupboard. There are two spacious reception rooms to either side of the hall. The sitting room has a triple sash window and a fireplace with painted surround that houses a multi-fuel stove. Beyond the sitting room there is a charming dual-aspect study with views to the walled garden and over the communal garden to the north and a half-glazed door out to the private garden. To the other side of the hall there is a dining room which offers a delightful formal entertaining space. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units, 1˝ bowl sink and drainer, two-oven AGA, separate gas hob and oven, is plumbed for a dishwasher and has space for a fridge/freezer. A door from the kitchen leads to a utility room which has a range of storage units, Belfast sink, is plumbed for a washing machine, has doors to a useful traditional shelved pantry and the garden. A cloakroom with wash hand basin and WC and an airing cupboard off completes the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs lead up to the first floor landing which is flooded with light from a tall window. The magnificent drawing room has three tall windows, one arched, to two aspects all of which have double shutters and offer fabulous elevated views over the garden and parkland. The old stairs with child gate linking the nursery to the Hall have been retained for decorative purposes and there is a painted fireplace with multi-fuel stove. Also on this floor is the superb master bedroom suite which benefits from a dressing room with a range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite with double-ended bath, separate corner shower, wash hand basin with vanity unit and WC.

To the second floor there are three further, characterful double bedrooms, all with garden views, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room. A charming galleried reading area overlooks the stairs and is accessed from one of the bedrooms. These bedrooms are served by a bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin with vanity unit and WC. There are useful shelved storage cupboards on the landing and a door to the fire escape.

Externally
Nursery House is approached along a shared driveway that leads to the rear of Bradley Hall to a shared parking area. There is a double garage with two up-and-over doors and an adjoining workshop, both of which benefit from light and power. Steps from the garage lead to the garden.

A path from the parking area leads through the communal grounds and courtyard to the private gardens belonging to Nursery House. The walled garden includes generous paved terraces, ideal for outdoor entertaining to take in the tranquil setting, lawned garden with mature herbaceous border planting. A gravelled path leads to raised beds which provide a productive vegetable garden. The original high brick walls surrounding the garden offer privacy and seclusion.
