Gentlemans estate with a great view!
Turpin’s Hill – a beautiful country estate just nine miles west of Newcastle is so named because its panoramic views would allow any highwayman any number of escape routes.
It’s rare that an estate of this calibre, so close to Newcastle comes to the market. Turpin’s Hill includes a lovely, stone built, seven bedroom country house, six cottages, ancillary buildings and 110 acres.
It is available as a whole, or in two lots. Lot One includes the main house plus 20 acres (large field directly in front of the house) and guide price is £1,250,000. Lot Two includes the six cottages and 90 acres of land and guide price is £2,000,000.
Turpin’s House is a substantial period house extended in 2001 and again in 2002, virtually doubling its size. The work was carried out extremely well and the end result is a magnificent family home.
Double glazed throughout, Turpin’s House has an Amdega entrance conservatory with stone floor and underfloor heating which leads to the reception hallway and stairs to the first floor.
The lovely light, main drawing room has windows to three walls, French doors to the garden and a multi fuel stove in a stone inglenook fireplace. There is also a well-proportioned dining room and sitting room on the ground floor as well as a Poggenpohl kitchen with a two oven Aga. Beyond the kitchen is a utility room which leads to a double garage and also a further study.
On the first floor there is a dual aspect master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, including free standing bath, separate shower and underfloor heating, three double bedrooms, a single bedroom and two family bathrooms.
The East wing of the property has a separate access from the rear parking area and could be used as a separate annexe. It comprises a large reception room with fireplace and solid oak floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Turpin’s Hill is approached via a beautiful tree-lined driveway which leads to the house, cottages and farm buildings. A stone pillared entrance with cattle grid provides access to Turpin’s Hill House.
There are attractive established gardens with mature trees and shrubs, hedges and borders. The gardens and grounds of the principal house extend to just under 1.5 acres.
There are six cottages at Turpin’s Hill which all are located within close proximity to each other. West Cottage, East Rose Cottage, The Granary, Stable Cottage, The Brambles and Oak Tree Cottage are all currently let as residential properties but could be used as holiday cottages.
