Beacon House provides a unique home, located on Beverley Terrace which is one of the coast’s most impressive residential addresses. Situated between Tynemouth and Cullercoats, Beacon House benefits from an amazing panoramic view over the North Sea. The area is known for its very special housing stock which were originally owned by leading industrialists from the North East of England and often used as holiday homes.
Dating back to 1860, Beacon House has undergone extensive renovation, modernising and updating works since the current owner’s purchase in 2010. The house is known for its individual architecture, design and quality which can only be fully appreciated on an internal inspection.
The house also has the rare advantage of a large, formally landscaped and private enclosed walled garden, with its coach house and garage, as well as extensive parking. The rear immediate terrace surrounding the property combines some of the most innovative design and styling, creating a superb alfresco dining area throughout the year.
Internally, the entrance vestibule leads into the reception hallway connecting to two fabulous reception rooms with beautiful bay windows and high ceilings. The sitting room has a very tasteful Art Deco fireplace and stunning flooring. The traditional dining room has a period marble fireplace and impressive display cabinets. To the rear of the hallway, nestled to the left, is a lounge/snug leading to a secret courtyard with a water feature. To the right of the hallway there is a concealed cloakroom/WC.
The kitchen/breakfast room is professionally equipped and fitted with built in wood cabinets, a central island, space for a cooking range, and a walk-in larder. The kitchen would impress any professional chef and those that like to entertain from home. The breakfast area has sliding doors leading out onto the rear west facing patio, terrace and garden, which are simply stunning.
A staircase connects to a passageway that links to the lower ground floor and leading to a spa room with a jacuzzi bath, sauna and steam room, as well as a gymnasium. There is also a professionally equipped working office and a useful utility room.
To the upper ground floor there are three double bedroom suites, all of which have curved walls separating the ensuites and bathroom areas. A number of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and storage. Connecting from this passageway, there is a contemporary summer room which has been built constructed using the highest quality materials and a sealed zinc roof that opens out onto the rear courtyard. This summer room is suspended and elevated over the rear terrace and links through to the stunning master bedroom.
Externally, there is a small town garden to the front offering a pedestrian access gate from Beverely Terrace. To the rear, there is a courtyard area offering raised flower beds, good log storage space, and an electric roller access door giving on site parking for a number of vehicles. A separate pedestrian door leads onto the rear lane. There is also a garden area offering raised flower beds and external lighting.
Separated from house by the rear access lane is an adjacent coach house, which incorporates a double garage and two parking bay. The two storey property benefits from cavity wall construction and is fully insulated, making conversion into a two bedroom mews cottage achievable, subject to suitable planning consent. To the rear of the coach house is an ornamental garden, lovingly managed and planted by the owner.
Tynemouth is one of the region’s most popular seaside villages, offering a range of amenities including shops, restaurants, cafes, and outstanding local schooling. There is also Tynemouth Priory, King Edwards Bay and of course Longsands Beach, one of the North East’s finest beaches.
To the other side of Beverley Terrace, Cullercoats offers an eclectic mix of further cafes, restaurants and pubs, as well as a small beach and bay.
Beacon House is very well known for its architecture and is also ideally located for local transport links with Cullercoats Metro Station only being a short walk away. There is also easy access to the Coast Road and the A19 for travelling throughout the region.
An exceptional property with truly unique appeal and accommodation for the discerning buyer. Early viewings are recommended to avoid later disappointment.
