- Just under 3900 sq ft of accommodation
- Potential to create further accommodation within the second floor
Occupying a magnificent mature garden plot of approximately 1 acre in the heart of Runnymede Road is this fabulous, large detached family home. The property, built originally in the 1930s, was purchased by the current owners in 1993 and since that time has had considerable investment carried out, to both house and the outstanding gardens.
The central location of the house, to the middle of Runnymede Road, is extremely popular and is surrounded by other magnificent mansion houses. This delightful house enjoys a fabulous large garden at the rear, which is south facing. The house has an impressive frontage onto Runnymede Road with gates leading into the open drive and courtyard, which gives parking for many cars as well as access into the detached double garage. The garden site will be truly appreciated by families who will particularly enjoy the large, open lawned areas, ideal for recreation purposes, as well as the beautiful, and well stocked flower and shrub borders, which have an abundance of plants. Pathways lead between separate terraces and there is a lovely stone flagged patio with a timber constructed summer house set into the rear garden, which is very private and secluded. Many of the pathways have beautiful roses and pergolas surrounding with climbing plants, undoubtedly creating a lovely back drop to this delightful house.
The property itself is spacious and well proportioned and enjoys accommodation over two floors but shows obvious potential to create further accommodation within the second floor, if required. The garden site will easily accommodate further additions and extensions to the house where many of the neighbours locally have invested up to £3 million in creating very large, mansion houses of which this site shows obvious potential.
The approach to the property is modest and private with an open block paved courtyard giving parking for many cars and a lovely lawned garden with hedge boundaries giving good screening from the adjacent road. The main entrance into the house leads through into the central hallway with its painted wood panelling and there is access via a lobby through to a ground floor wc and cloaks cupboard. There is a separate general storage cupboard underneath the stairs and there is also access to the cellar and a ground floor snug/study room.
The principal rooms connecting from the reception hall include the fine drawing room which has double doors leading onto its conservatory at the rear and to the centre of the house is a very elegant dining room. Both the principal reception rooms have attractive fireplaces. The kitchen also leads from the hallway and is well supplied with a range of high quality painted wood cabinets with granite worktop surfaces as well as having terracotta flooring and a lovely extension to the rear which provides an open day to day living space including a dining area, sitting area and conservatory, which stretches across the whole of the rear of the house.
The last door adjacent to the kitchen leads to a large utility and laundry room.
The last principal reception room is a very large hobbies/family room, which was formerly part of the garage to the house and was later altered to provide integral accommodation to the property. It is a very significant, spacious room 32ft x 15.5ft with storage cupboards. This area would also easily adapt for use into an independent relative’s accommodation if required. The rear of the property also accommodates a small potting store and greenhouse.
To the first floor the main staircase leads up to an open landing and connects on in turn to five bedrooms, the master bedroom being very large and having lovely views to the rear, overlooking the gardens, as well as a walk-in dressing room with wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom/wc. There are three substantial double bedrooms and one smaller double giving a total of five to the first floor, one of the guest rooms being particularly well fitted with wardrobes and storage space. The remaining bedrooms have access to a family bathroom/wc as well as a superb shower/wet room and a separate wc. The bathrooms have lovely white suites and good quality showers as well as painted wood furniture and beautiful tiling,
The property has the benefit of gas radiator central heating, with a new boiler installed in 2015, an alarm system and double glazing set into original wood frames, as well as light and bright rooms which enjoy lovely aspects overlooking the gardens.
This very large family home extends to just under 3900 sq.ft and has very convenient and immediate access into the village of Ponteland.
There are lovely countryside walks close by easily connecting from Fox Covert Lane, only a short distance from the house itself, as well as into the village with its good quality shopping and lovely coaching inns and restaurants.
