The Granary is a stunning luxury mansion offering outstanding family accommodation extending to around 7,000 sq ft of living space, situated in private, mature grounds of circa three quarters of an acre. This very impressive home has been extensively remodelled, refurbished and improved to an exceptional standard and lends itself to family and multi-generational living as result of the self contained annex which has been created. The property is also ideal for working professionals as the home office is perfect for those who need to work remotely.

This beautiful family home is situated within Darras Hall’s most prestigious address of Runnymede Road with good accessibility into the Broadway and local shopping facilities, as well as excellent restaurants. From Darras Hall, there is easy access to the A1, the centre of Newcastle, the Metrocentre and Newcastle International Airport, a great asset for a business executive who needs links to European and Worldwide business hubs. Ponteland itself is a lovely village, with a central church and green, and is well placed for exploring the glorious countryside the county of Northumberland offers in its National Park and along its stunning heritage coastline.

The Granary, set back and very private from, the most sought after and prestigious Runnymede Road, was originally constructed in the late nineteenth century and was the Granary to the original Callerton Home Farm. The extensive remodelling has created a luxurious home with a considerable amount of style and character.

The main wing of the house is stunning and undoubtedly provides, as its focal point, a magnificent entrance reception hall and beautiful oak staircase with oak flooring, architraves, skirting and doors, as well as beautiful lighting and windows overlooking the terrace and gardens.

Leading from the entrance hall is a very substantial study and office which also connects to the garage. The principal reception rooms to the ground floor include a drawing room with lovely views over the gardens, a family room with lovely fireplace and passageways leading to the staircase which connects to the first floor. The garden room also has a lovely aspect to the west overlooking the gardens and approach to the house. A glazed passageway connects from the conservatory to a dining room and kitchen which is very well appointed with a range of Sheraton supplied cabinets with cream fronted doors, granite work surfaces and built-in appliances. There is also a utility room and a ground floor shower room/wc with useful cloak store cupboards. There are three staircases connecting to the first floor of the house, enabling the accommodation to be divided into separate wings if required.

The principal impressive hall wing of the house, with its magnificent bespoke oak staircase constructed by Theresa Spinks, leads to a landing which links into the self contained apartment above the garage, as well as to the master bedroom suite. The master bedroom is delightful with solid wood flooring, lovely windows and an extensive glass wall with three sets of double doors leading on to its own private balcony which is south facing. The en-suite bathroom/wc is luxuriously appointed with a five piece suite and beautiful tiling and lighting. The original Granary accommodates a further three double bedrooms along with an en-suite bathroom/wc and a range of fitted cabinets and wardrobes. The other two double bedrooms have access to a family bathroom/wc.

The self contained one bedroom apartment above the double garage does provide a fifth bedroom to the house if required, with en-suite bathroom, as well as its own kitchen and sitting room. An external staircase connects from here to the side of the garage. The versatile layout could accommodate different generations of a family.

The house has beautiful interior decoration, with lovely lighting, and the carpets and furnishings have all been replaced in recent times. The entry telephone system linking to the main entrance doors is protected with security cameras and there is very attractive lighting throughout the grounds.

The gardens and grounds extend to circa three quarters of an acre and include an orchard at the front and a substantial private garden and recreation area at the rear. The tarmacadam drive, with access through electric gates, provides parking for many cars and leads to a double garage with external lighting.

This is a delightful, luxurious home.
