A range of Gosforth’s most interesting and stunning homes including spacious houses, apartments and bungalows will be available to view by appointment from November 14th.
ABOUT THE COACH HOUSE
The Coach House was purchased by the Summer’s family in the 1970’s, and became home to successful local business, Summers & Partners. After 45 years the company, which is now known as Summers Inman, moved on to pastures new following significant expansion, allowing the family to create a range of outstanding homes while carefully preserving the external features of this historically significant building.
As its name infers, it was The Coach House for the former Coxlodge Hall, an exceptional and grand country estate set in 30 acres of countryside, built in 1796 by Job Bulman. A doctor by profession, he made his fortune in India before returning to his native North East and was instrumental in the development of Gosforth.
This magnificent Grade II-listed coach house and gatehouse were saved when the Hall itself was demolished in 1939. In later years, this Georgian gem, with its neoclassical façade and colonnaded portico was used as ofﬁce space, and now it has become Gosforth’s most sought-after development with centuries of history. Its stunning conversion brings an unparalleled opportunity to live in the most elegant and historic building, on the ﬁnest street in the most sought-after suburb of the capital of the North.
PRIVATE GATED COMMUNITY
One of the most tranquil streets in Gosforth, The Drive is also one of the safest and most exclusive and because your privacy and security is of the utmost importance, The utilised the latest technology to make sure your Coach House home really is your castle.
Vehicle access to the driveway will be via an intercom system on the gates to the site, while a pedestrian gate will have code, fob and intercom access for visitors. With sustainability in mind, a port will be provided for electric cars, while parking spaces will be allocated to residents and their visitors. There is a secure bike store and bin store as well - both designed to blend in with the surroundings.
And what of the gardens themselves? We have worked with North East landscape design company, One Environments, to create communal areas thoughtfully planted to complement the Coach House and provide a beautiful backdrop to your new home.
Boasting one of the most exclusive addresses in Gosforth our four luxurious and extremely generously spaced apartments can be found to the left and right of the entranceway, over both levels of the building. Each is L-shaped and, while they all follow a similar layout, each has something special to offer.
On the ground ﬂoor, the two-bedroom apartments each beneﬁt from their own, beautiful, private garden, while, on the upper storey, apartment eight has an additional, third bedroom and split-level living. The second storey apartments can be accessed by a lift or by the impressive, sweeping, main staircase, both of which overlook the central courtyard via a large central window.
The apartments are special as they enjoy prime position at the front of the building which means they beneﬁt from high ceilings associated with properties of this period. The front aspect of the apartments is integral to the grand and imposing feeling of the building for residents and their guests.
Our two houses are at the heart of The Coach House development and have been thoughtfully designed with the inclusion of an en-suite bedroom on the ground ﬂoor to offer versatile living over one or two ﬂoors. The houses are centrally positioned in each wing of the building, overlooking the courtyard.
On the ground ﬂoor, a spacious entrance lobby opens onto a light and airy living room, with views of, and access to, a private garden.
Downstairs comprises a spacious open-plan living room and kitchen and a generously proportioned downstairs bedroom, which comes with a beautifully equipped en-suite bathroom.
On the upper ﬂoor are two further bedrooms, one with a separate dressing room and each with en-suite facilities.
Beautifully positioned to the rear of The Coach House development, our two bungalows are the most exclusive units on the site.
Not only do they offer total privacy but, with three bedrooms, private gardens and open plan living areas, they offer unrivalled single-storey accommodation.
A generous entrance lobby curves around the building and provides access to the en-suite bedrooms, one of which also has its own dressing room.
A superbly equipped kitchen, with views over the central courtyard, then opens onto a large living area where large glass doors lead onto the wrap-around private garden.
In addition, the bungalow on the east wing beneﬁts from the potential addition of a studio at the bottom of the garden which can be purchased separately.
Gosforth is without a doubt the most desirable residential area of Newcastle upon Tyne, with The Coach House being arguably the most desirable address. It lies just 3km north of the vibrant city centre separated by the Town Moor, where cattle graze undisturbed throughout the year.
The affluent area of Gosforth provides an almost semirural setting giving the Conservation Area of Gosforth much of its charm. This very much family-based community also includes a bustling high street and plenty of open, green space for all to enjoy.
This well-established area is now overlaid with the sophistication of fashionable wine bars, independent shops and superb restaurants. The region’s best schools, golf courses and tennis clubs are all within easy reach, as are the A1 and Newcastle Airport, which lie just to the north.
The groundwork for the Gosforth we know today was laid by The Coach House’s original owner, Job Bulman, with a nearby pub now bearing his name. We think he’d be rather proud of how it has turned out; a beautiful, welcoming place which anyone would be very proud to call home.
Properties are available to view by appointment only with prices starting from £700,000.
