Full description


Here is a rare combination of property to bring to the market with a principal residence, Blue Bell House and the annex, Blue Bell Cottage. Our clients have transformed and extended, in a most sympathetic manner, a great 1930’s semi-detached home to now provide a gracious and superbly appointed residence which has successfully combined many features form its original build with all expected modern day amenities. Then a detached modern cottage has been built in the gardens which provides independent living for a dependent relative, a home for the independent teenager or would make a great home office.

Standing well back from Cornmoor Road the property is approached via a wide pillared entrance leading onto the block paver drive edged by half-moon gravelled borders. You enter Blue Bell House via an extended front porch which then opens into the spacious reception hall which has an impressive staircase with a beautiful newel post and handrail, and painted turspaned spindles. The principal ground floor accommodation radiates off the hall and includes an elegant sitting room which features an attractive fireplace, front bow window, deep moulded cornicing and skirting boards. At the end of the hall you walk into the main social hub of the house, the extended dining/living kitchen with its large “Lantern” window that allows natural light to stream into the room. This part of the property lends itself to today’s modern living. The comfortable living area is set around an open fireplace and then archways set either side of a central pillar allows the space to flow into the dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of modern contemporary units which have stylish work tops over. A set of double French doors lead off the kitchen allowing access onto the rear terrace and extensive gardens beyond. Then a surprise leads off the study when you enter a Spa room with attractive floor and wall tiling, a hot tub and steam room. To complete the ground floor you have a generous cloakroom with a downstairs WC off that features a sculpted wash basin and complementary tiling.

From the reception hall the staircase gives access to the spacious bedroom accommodation that provides a master bedroom with fitted wardrobes set either side of the panelled blocked off fireplace and a stunning en suite bathroom which is a real show stopper with its “Vintage style” wet room and high level wc. A guest suite benefits from a second en suite which has a beautiful floor and wall tiling and set out as a wet room having a walk in and walk out shower area. There are two additional bedrooms and house bathroom which has a fabulous slipper style bath with polished chrome side panel and floor mounted chrome Swan Neck mixer tap.

You walk across the rear flagged terrace to Blue Bell Cottage which was built for a family member and has been fitted out to a superb standard. The long entrance hall with its tall pitched ceiling which incorporates two roof lights gives access to the delightful accommodation including a well fitted kitchen, double bedroom, full tiled wet room with a shower area having fixed and hand held shower attachments and then a delightful sitting room enjoying a dual aspect and a great view of the garden.

The gardens are an absolute joy and are set principally to the rear. Affording a degree of privacy being enclosed by mature hedging. Though of a generous size the gardens are extensively lawned for ease of maintenance and provide a great space for children to play. If you like outside entertaining then the rear flagged terrace offers that “Outside Dining” area having direct access into the kitchen.

Located in one the area’s most sought after villages which lies just off the A1 which offers a great commuting link to the centre of Newcastle, Durham, Morpeth and Alnwick. There is a Metro station at Gateshead that connects to Newcastle Central Station for rail links and International Airport. Whickham has a vibrant centre with a great choice of shops, a number of bars and eateries, doctor and dental surgeries and schooling at both primary and secondary levels.

There is no way from the cursory drive by that you can begin to appreciate all that these two wonderful properties have to offer so you must go inside! The agent is sure you will not be disappointed and there are a number of definite surprises on offer!
