4 Bedroom Detached
Moorlands Lodge, Parker Avenue, Gosforth, Newcastle, NE3 4BE
Occupying a fabulous mature garden site set back from Parker Avenue and close to Elmfield Road and Elgy Green, is this beautiful stone built detached Lodge. The property dates back to the late 19th century and was associated with Moorlands Hall. The Hall and the Moorlands Estate has now been extensively redeveloped and provides a number of luxury apartments, duplexes and family homes.
The Lodge is in private ownership from the adjacent development and Planning permission has recently been granted for an innovative extension to be added to the existing modest two bedroom detached stone Lodge which currently occupies the site.
The architect, Bill Hopper of Saddler Brown Architecture has very successfully contrasted the old traditional stone Lodge with a highly impressive modern two storey addition which is connected to the Lodge by a contemporary style glass and steel atrium under a pitched slate roof.
Behind the stone boundary wall on Parker Avenue is a lovely, private, mature garden site which enjoys views to the south and east. The surrounding mature trees give tremendous privacy and screening to the property and the new luxury house will undoubtedly provide a rare opportunity for a super central garden plot within Gosforth.
The options available are for purchasers to acquire either the property as it is, or with the extension built to shell format, or with the whole of the property refurbished and fully fitted internally.
The accommodation currently provides pedestrian access to the southern elevation of the Lodge, leading into an entrance vestibule and lobby which connects on to a lounge which has views to the south and east. The lounge has access to a double bedroom at the side and rear of the property, as well as an internal lobby which connects to the second double bedroom at the front and western elevation of the property. The lobby also leads off to a bathroom/wc, as well as a fittedl kitchen connecting to the outbuildings and rear garden.
The plans identified by Bill Hopper propose the following new accommodation: an existing arch and gated entrance will be removed from Parker Avenue, to create an open double car parking area and drive. A new lobby will be created as part of the extension and it will lead into the entrance reception hall, connecting on to a cloakroom and the double integral garage.
The hall leads through to the original stone Lodge, which will provide a family room, a dining room and an open plan kitchen/breakfasting area. There is also a separate utility identified.
The modern hall will link through to a glass and steel double height sitting room, which will be partially divided from the hall with a curved solus wall screening the entrance. The magnificent windows will give a panoramic aspect over the surrounding gardens. This will be a very impressive light and bright room under a pitched slate roof.
The glass corridor and passageway will link from the hall, connecting to the new double storey wing. This wing currently identifies a ground floor guest double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and an open plan study. Flexibility is obvious for the proposed ground and first floor accommodation to be altered to suit personal taste.
The current first floor layout of the proposed extension includes three double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom or shower room/wc, a dressing room and large glazed windows with views to the south and east. The landing will also connect to two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom/wc.
The new wing of the property could easily be altered to create a very large kitchen/breakfast room at ground floor, which would enjoy the open terraces and gardens. The original Lodge could revert back to having at least one or two bedroom areas, to give flexibility to the buyer’s personal taste and preferences.
The new luxury home will be a large family house, but capable of being divided to accommodate visiting guests or live in relative. The new additions to the house are modern, with glass and steel, but under traditional roof structures and with part facing stone work and wood panelling to the exterior, which gives a very attractive contrast to the existing Lodge.
The computer generated images available with the sales particulars identify the proposed elevations from the south, east and western viewpoints.
The gardens that surround the property are large and mature; they will easily be landscaped into beautiful areas and will retain a great deal of their privacy and security.
Moorlands Lodge is an exceptional and very rare opportunity in the heart of Gosforth. It lies adjacent to Elgy Green and there are many beautiful homes nearby, including Beechfield Road.
The Lodge has the option of being sold as it is, or partially or fully built with the new luxury wings. Details of which are available on request.
Prospective bill of quantities for the build, as well as potential cost sums for the internal fit out of kitchens and bathrooms are available on file.
Central Gosforth supports a number of high quality facilities including private schools, a diverse range of retail and leisure facilities, beautiful walks and good sports facilities.
This is a most unusual and very impressive opportunity to acquire a beautiful home in a well respected area.
