Halton Grange was constructed in 1913 and was purchased by the current owners in 2008. It provides one of the most stunning country homes we have had the pleasure of marketing in the Tyne Valley. In recent times the house has been extensively renovated with considerable time spent working with national and regional suppliers to create one of the most impressive homes within the region. The property has been extensively remodelled, refurbished and improved to create this magnificent large family house. The house itself is situated in impressive gardens and grounds, which extend to 12.5 acres, including two grazing paddocks.
The views to the west overlooking surrounding countryside are stunning and the open grounds will easily accommodate a helicopter, as well as having the magnificent gardens and private sitting areas, its water feature and pond, its all-weather tennis court, its orchard and its formal gardens.
There are an extensive arrangement of stables, a professional workshop and outbuildings.
The house itself has dramatically altered since 2004, when a very substantial leisure suite was added to the main home, connecting via a games room and involving the restoration and refurbishment of the old garage house and Halton Grange Cottage. The cottage includes a one bedroomed annexe apartment with a fully integrated and well fitted kitchen, a shower room and a lounge. It is ideal for independent relatives and live in staff.
The main house has a very high standard of interior design, supported by New England Interiors of Gosforth, using simple colours and shades to complement the beautiful lighting within the rooms.
The double glazed windows have lovely views over the surrounding gardens.
The entrance hall has a super fireplace and snug area; it leads to a garden room and conservatory. The three formal reception rooms include a drawing room, sitting room and dining room, all impeccably presented, the latter having handmade craftsman furniture by Edwin Loxley of Nottingham.
The kitchen/breakfasting room is magnificent. Influenced by a Perthshire designer and supplied by Mark Wilkinson, of national reputation, this hand painted cream kitchen is stunning. It has black granite worktops and fabulous built-in appliances supplied by Miele and Gaggenau, as well as a four oven aga. The kitchen is divided between a breakfasting area and the family living area, which are all fully integrated and fitted with dresser, cabinets and furniture, as well as glazed doors leading out onto the western facing courtyard and gardens.
