The Property

9 Leazes Lane is a beautiful ground floor apartment in a peaceful and picturesque converted manor house with stunning period features. The house was built for Cuthbert Bainbridge, father to Emerson Bainbridge who went on to open the famous department store in Newcastle. This exclusive development of apartments is nestled in a green and wooded area on the edge of the village.

A communal entrance hallway delivers an impressive first impression as it has a wealth of original period features including a teardrop arch doorway, grand staircase panelled staircase with carved newels and spindles, a pretty stained-glass sky light and plaster frieze panels.

A door opens into the entrance lobby of the apartment which leads into a very spacious dining kitchen with tiled floor, high ceilings and a range of beech fronted units and striking black granite worktops. There is a breakfast bar for informal dining and ample space for dining furniture too. The living room is superbly appointed to take advantage of dual aspects which allows a flood of natural light to bathe the room through the two bay windows. A master bedroom benefits from a stylish en-suite shower room as does the second bedroom which also boast windows with dual aspect. A WC and storage cupboard complete the interior accommodation.


A gravelled driveway leads up from Leazes Lane to the main house where there is parking available to the front. There are communal grounds around which one can walk and enjoy the surroundings, however 9 Leazes Lane also has its own rear walled and fenced garden with private and exclusive access.
