A truly remarkable six bedroomed Victorian detached house, occupying a truly palatial plot and remaining a very significant and characterful building, within the conservation area of Blyth. Dating from circa 1890, this impressive property was historically a nursing home before the current owners converted and extended it to a private dwelling house. The heritage value is reflected in its architecture, with the imposing scale of the build being true to its era, with steeply pitched roofs incorporating dormers and symmetrical bay windows. Great attention to detail has been paid to the modern brick extension to match the stonework and the Aberdeen granite fascia frontage of the original building. This property sympathetically incorporates a magnitude of original features such as timber panelling and intricate decorative coving and roses with modern living and exhibits extremely stately aesthetics. This vast property offers generous accommodation over three floors displaying a wealth of historic charm including opulent high ceilings and period fireplaces and benefits from a self contained flat situated on the top floor which is currently being refurbished providing extremely versatile living accommodation. The main house briefly comprises: Entrance lobby opening through to the elegant entrance hallway with ornate Georgian timber panelling and split level staircase, lounge and living room with large bay fronted windows, dining room, contemporary kitchen, utility room, snug room, games room, bar, bedroom and two downstairs WC's. To the first floor there are five bedrooms, three with en-suites, an office and family bathroom. To the second floor there is the self contained flat including, living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Externally there is a large gravelled driveway providing secure off street parking for multiple cars, there are extensive mature gardens to the front and side elevations with exceptionally maintained lawn areas with a fantastic play area for children including a silted timber tree house. There is a private courtyard to the rear with multiple brick built storage areas. This magnificent home provides spacious family accommodation whilst boasting a prime location for easy access into Blyth town centre.
