Thornleigh House is a beautifully presented large semi detached, two storey Victorian Villa which is ideally positioned in the quiet, green heart of the South Jesmond Conservation Area and is perfectly placed on the desirable Clayton Road, Jesmond.
Boasting in excess of 3900 sq ft, this magnificent five bedroom period family home offers wonderful versatile accommodation set over two floors, as well as a large cellar and offers further potential for a roof conversion (subject to normal planning consents) to accommodate at least two further bedrooms.
The period house was originally constructed around 1865, and has been under the same family ownership for in excess of 60 years and is extremely rare to the marketplace. The house retains many of its original features with fantastic ornate mouldings, cornicing and ceiling roses, large bay windows and magnificent fireplaces. The rooms are very well proportioned and the house has a lovely aspect to both the front and rear with a very good degree of privacy.
This imposing, period residence is perfectly placed close to some of the region’s finest independent schooling, Jesmond Metro Station and Newcastle City Centre which is only a short walk away.
