Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Beamish Park Gardens is based on a former bath house with a classical portico dating from the creation of the walled gardens in the early 18th century and the later gardener's cottage. The walls of the walled garden and the house are Listed Grade ll*. From the house, the original high brick and stone wall extends westwards for almost the full width of the walled garden, originally supporting glasshouses on the south (garden) side and bothies and garden sheds on the north side.The redevelopment of Beamish Park Gardens has very successfully taken place in most recent years. In 2013, the original small cottage with its highly impressive pillared south facing portico created a modest family home and the existing owners purchased the property at that stage and set about converting it into a stunning luxury larger family property.In conjunction with their architects, Greenwell Design, the owners have created a magnificent country home within its walled gardens of circa 3.25 acres. The property was recognised at the Durham CC Environment Awards 2019 as joint Built Environment Category Winner along with the new Welcome Tower in Bishop Auckland.The formal gardens that surround the principal house are located to the south and west of the house and surround the beautiful architecture, which includes dressed stonework, sliding sash windows, fabulous Yorkshire oak beams and beautiful new Welsh slate and leaded roof works. The creation of the new two storey oak framed glazed 'gallery' extension provides access to the ground floor rooms and upper floor bedrooms and gives superb natural light to many parts of this beautiful home.The house is offered for sale, in the first instance, with the whole of the garden site at 3.25 acres to include a second building plot, with Listed Building Consent Approval to create another luxury home extending to circa 4400 sq.ft. This will equally enjoy its own private entrance (yet to be created) with superb landscaped gardens and paddock.The second option will be to sell on the principal house as one dwelling, and the third option will be the separate building plot subject to planning permission for development.Individual negotiations will be able to take place on how much land goes with the principal house and the building plot, if they are divided from the whole dwelling.The property provided has a ground source heat pump, which creates RHI income of circa £7,000 per annum.The principal house is hidden behind lovely cobbled entrance with electrically operated oak panelled double gates set into the stone wall and leading down to a gravelled driveway and courtyard. There is a substantial oak clad garage and a parking area for many cars. The garage benefits from a living roof which is surrounded by spring flower gardens and terraces to the north eastern corner of the dwelling.The oak framed front entrance porch leads through to an open plan reception room, which extends to the majority of the ground floor and includes a handmade bespoke kitchen with painted cabinets and a beautiful three oven AGA, as well as granite worktops and breakfast bar. The kitchen leads on to a utility room and then a boot room, with garden store connecting into the external gardens.Returning to the principal kitchen, access is open through to the living and garden room, which are divided to the centre with a double sided wood burning stove, set into an exposed chimney breast. The garden room has stunning views over the garden that surround, and the open reception room is an ideal space for entertaining. This area in turn connects through to the dining room, which has aspects to the north and south and a wood burning stove set in an original fireplace. The dining room is very well appointed and connects to the east wing of the house.On the ground floor, there is also a formal sitting room, again with aspects to the north and south and a wood burning stove set in an original fireplace, which leads to its own private study/potential fifth bedroom within the original bath house. There is also a guest bedroom suite with a walk-in dressing room and ensuite bathroom/wc/shower.The spacious cloakroom/wc is adjacent to the bespoke staircase, which is open to the living area and has been built utilising reclaimed ‘Joicey’ bricks with yorkstone stairs. This leads up to the galleried landing with oak framed glazing, which provides great natural light.To the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, which have their own ensuite and shower room facilities, as well as wardrobes and storage space. The Master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a magnificent ensuite bath and shower room.The principal house at Beamish Park Gardens is an extremely good example of very fine architecture, environment design and superb detailed planning. It is a beautiful home in such a fabulous setting, only a short 10 minute drive from the western bypass that surrounds Newcastle and Tyneside. It is equally only 10 minutes from the A1M, accessible into Durham, as well as good quality leisure facilities.The opportunity to have your own building plot, which can be developed at a later stage, shows great potential to create a second magnificent home.We strongly recommend early viewing of this outstanding country house in such a fabulous area.
