Property Description

Full description

Springfield House is believed to have been constructed circa 1874 and is a highly impressive detached Victorian residence. The property was extensively refurbished in the 1990s and was purchased by the current owners in 2004. Since that time it has been further improved to an extremely high standard.

Springfield House is set in circa 2.9 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and grounds. It is located in the heart of Corbridge, just off Spoutwell Lane. A discreet pillared entrance with electric gates and TV monitors leads thorough tall evergreen trees, with the driveway meandering up the hill to the west facing courtyard and entrance drive. The principal gardens lie to the south elevation at the front of the house, where there are stunning open lawns, an all weather tennis court, magnificent rhododendrons and tall evergreen trees. The twin tree house, built by the same company as The Alnwick Garden treehouse, is a highly impressive piece of architecture with timber terrace leading up to the main house.

The property has lovely south facing terraces and open views over the Tyne Valley. The courtyard to the western elevation provides parking for many cars and there is a separate area used for garaging and storage, where planning application has been submitted under permitted development to build a new independent garage. Plans are available upon request.

Springfield House itself is delightful and provides some of the most impressive family accommodation in the north of England, with period styling and its modern luxury fittings.

The pillared entrance portico leads to the vestibule, with cloakroom and separate wc. The inner hallway leads through to the western hall, with its magnificent fireplace and double archway through to the central hall and library. This room enjoys a southerly aspect and has an elegant staircase and double doors onto the terrace. Beneath the stairs are two cellars.

The principal reception rooms include a drawing room with fireplace and lovely window views. The professional study was previously a dining room and is now a magnificent office, with Clive Christian furniture and fireplace.

The kitchen is stunning and is supplied by Clive Christian with handmade light oak furniture, magnificent built-in Miele and Sub Zero appliances and a seven oven Aga. The kitchen leads through to the breakfasting area and is an ideal day to day living room. The kitchen also connects through to the garden and dining room, with bay windows and double doors onto the terrace. The kitchen also leads into its own pantry and general store room, with extra built-in appliances. The laundry is fully integrated and leads to a side passageway with gymnasium and shower room.

Returning to the principal hall, access is gained to a side passageway connecting to the games room.

The elegant staircase connects to the first floor landing which links off to the master bedroom, with double doors onto its terrace, a luxury en-suite dressing room and en-suite bathroom with separate wet room. The second double bedroom has access to the family bathroom. The four remaining bedrooms are all individually appointed with en-suite dressing rooms, bathrooms and shower rooms.

The house has gas radiator central heating, period style radiators, double glazing set in wood frames and a comprehensive surveillance and alarm system.

Springfield House is located in one of the best areas of Northumberland, with easy access into Newcastle. Corbridge is very well regarded for its tasteful shops, its gourmet restaurants and excellent leisure facilities. The train station links easily into Newcastle and the A69 connects well into Tyneside and the International Airport.

A very special and luxurious house and one of the best family homes within the North East of England.
