An undeniably rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this stunning ground floor maisonette apartment. Moorlands Hall is positioned in the heart of an exclusive development in central Gosforth. It was previously a derelict late Georgian/early Victorian mansion house, which has now been impressively converted into five luxury apartments. It has undergone extensive building work and interior design by the current owners, with the specific objective of creating easy and flexible accommodation, whilst retaining the best of elegant period features alongside modern ones.
These features are displayed to best advantage with the aid of very large, double-glazed windows of Georgian proportions, all of which face either South or West, thus providing a wealth of natural light and sunlight.
Not only does the accommodation benefit from a private lift, it has been individually tailored with handmade fixtures and fittings, including a beautiful fireplace, bespoke hardwood pelmets and contemporary radiators. It benefits from ample electric points and a triple heating circuit system creating a high and rapid generation of efficient heat.
A well maintained communal entrance hall gives access to the private apartments.
Thus, a very large, white Italian marble tiled hall leads directly into all downstairs rooms and to the first floor via traditional staircase or single person lift.
Moorlands Hall sits on a palatial well kept communal garden site. It offers residents direct access to Elmfield Road and ample communal space for sitting and relaxation. The apartment owns two allocated parking bays and there is visitor parking. Apartment 1 also has generous patio space to the Southern and Western elevations which is currently enclosed by bushes. It is part-paved and part grass covered.
The owner has investigated with Newcastle Planning Department the possibility of removing the hedging, paving the area, and surrounding its limits with attractive fencing to provide private parking space for several cars along the Western elevation. He was told this could be accomplished without specific planning consent.
Elmfield Square is ideally positioned in a highly regarded and exclusive conservation area of Gosforth, it offers a wealth of privacy for its residents. Gosforth is an affluent suburb just three miles from the centre of Newcastle and offers an elite range of restaurants, bars and shops. There are highly regarded schools nearby and the apartment has great access to transportation links providing ease of access to the coast, the City, Newcastle Airport, the Metro Centre and the countryside.
A well maintained and immaculately presented communal entrance provides secure access to the private apartments with access through a security phone system door.
