West Leazes is a charming and spacious period home with private gardens on one of Hexham’s most prestigious streets.

The original property has been extended to create a fantastic versatile home including a substantial guest annex and double garage.

The accommodation is laid out over two floors with plenty of character, light-filled rooms, and glorious views to the north across the Tyne Valley.

The detached house, approached by a circular driveway, is set back from Leazes Lane and this privacy is ensured by large mature gardens to all sides which are a particular selling point of the house.

The layout features a hallway with solid oak flooring, three cupboards and a cloakroom.

Two reception rooms feature stone fireplaces, one with an open fire, the other with wood-burning stove and both offering delightful views.

The L-shaped dining kitchen has a wealth of cabinets with granite worktops and a spacious dining area. The kitchen is open to a side kitchen which has additional units and a breakfast bar.

There is also a utility room, inner lobby and the annex housing the en-suite guest bedroom with double doors to the gardens.

Upstairs are four more double bedrooms with a mix of fitted and built-in wardrobes and one with an en-suite shower room complementing the family bathroom.

Accessed from the utility room is a versatile 29ft by 13ft room which could be used as a sixth bedroom, play room or office and the house has an attached double garage.

Externally substantial private and mature gardens surround the house to all sides with views across the Tyne Valley.

The gardens are a particular feature of West Leazes and comprise a variety of mature trees, bushes, shrubs and flower beds, a secure woodland walk for children, and various secluded patio areas ideal for entertaining.
