The Property

School House is an attractive Victorian detached house, constructed of stone and situated on the outskirts of Blaydon, with excellent access to the A1, Metro Centre and Newcastle City Centre. The property dates back to the end of the 19th century and was built for the headmaster of the former school.

Internally, the rooms are well-proportioned with a high degree of natural light, as the principal rooms are south facing. The front door opens into the vestibule with stained glass inner door which leads to the reception hall. Two generous reception rooms, both with high ceilings, cornicing, ceiling roses, fireplaces and living flame gas fires, are situated to the front of the house. To the rear of the house is the kitchen with classic-style cream fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces, integral fridge and freezer, Stoves range, dishwasher and plumbing for washing machine. Also to the rear of the house is a boot room and WC.

The first floor of the house contains the master bedroom, light and airy with windows to the south and west, and a recently fitted traditional-style en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms which are served by the recently fitted family bathroom with freestanding bath, large shower, WC and wash basin. A study room has stairs leading to the second floor where the third bedroom is located along with an excellent attic room, perfect for storage or use as a play room.


Externally, the property is entered via wrought iron gates onto a tarmacadam driveway with parking for several vehicles, leading to a large single garage with electrically-operated door, and garden store attached. There is also plumbing and electricity within the garage and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The main garden area is west facing with lawn sheltered by mature trees and shrubs, and a recently decked sun terrace which enjoys sunlight in the afternoon and evening. A rear courtyard is an excellent private and enclosed area which is ideal for sitting out in the summer. Steps lead down from the driveway to a lower garden which is laid to lawn and enclosed by evergreen hedging.

Agents note: This property is owned by a relative of a director of Finest Properties.
