Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

North Gate is believed to have been one of the largest and most impressive detached houses within the very sought after location of North Lodge near Chester le Street.

North Gate is understood to have been one of the few, if not the original, pre-war detached houses within this exclusive residential area. The house is understood to date back to the later 1920s and was purchased by the current owners approximately 25 years ago.

The extensive gardens and grounds that surround this magnificent house are truly impressive and we understand that the property was originally built for a local family of bakers. The house now occupies one of the largest garden sites within the area and has tall mature trees giving great screening and privacy. Its access from North Road is impressive, with a beautiful stone boundary wall and gated entrance leading into a large courtyard and parking area. The house was built in a mock Tudor style and was extended in the 1950s, as well as more recently in 2008.

Since the current owners purchased the house, the property has been extensively remodelled and improved and now provides a stunning luxury home.

The accommodation includes an entrance vestibule leading through to the reception hall, with Amtico flooring, oak wood doors and a beamed ceiling. Leading from the hall is a cloakroom, a small study and storage room and access to principal reception rooms. The drawing room is at the side of the house with bay window and double doors onto the gardens. The principal sitting room is to the centre of the house with double doors onto the gardens, as well as a bay window and doors connecting to the conservatory. The conservatory was built in 1995 by Amdega and provides a large reception area.

The formal dining room extends to the rear of the property under a single storey roof. The kitchen extends to the front and side of the property and was refurbished in 2008 by Newcastle Furniture Company with hand painted cabinets and top of the range appliances. It has its own breakfasting area with double doors onto the gardens. It also connects to a gymnasium and snug room, as well as to the utility & laundry room and the garage.

To the first floor the master bedroom suite is highly impressive and incorporates its own private passageway and dressing area, as well as leading to professionally equipped dressing rooms fitted by Newcastle Furniture Company. The en-suite bathroom is luxuriously appointed and the bedroom itself is also equipped with professionally installed cabinets.

There are three further double bedrooms, two of which have their own en-suite bathrooms. There is also a family bathroom.

The property has a large roof and obvious potential for further bedrooms if required. It benefits from secondary and double glazing, as well as a comprehensive alarm system and two central heating boilers.

North Gate is a very imposing and handsome detached residence. Its extensive gardens and grounds are a major selling feature, with beautiful lawned areas and superbly stocked flower and shrub borders.

The patio terraces are impressive and the external lighting greatly enhances the house during the evening hours.

North Gate is well located for its ease of access into Durham to the south and Newcastle to the north via the A1(M). The area is supported by magnificent golf courses at Ramside and International Cricket at the Riverside in Chester le Street.

A highly impressive home in a beautiful area for which viewing is strongly recommended.
