Springfield House is believed to have been constructed circa 1874 and is a highly impressive detached Victorian residence. The property has recently been extensively refurbished and benefits from a detached four car garage.
Springfield House is set in circa 2.8 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and grounds. It is located in the heart of Corbridge, just off Spoutwell Lane. A discreet pillared entrance with electric gates and TV monitors leads through tall evergreen trees, with the curved tarmacadam driveway meandering up the hill to the west facing courtyard and entrance drive. The principal gardens lie to the south elevation at the front of the house, where there are stunning open lawns, an all-weather tennis court, zip wire, magnificent rhododendrons, and tall evergreen trees. The twin tree house, built by the same company as The Alnwick Garden tree house, is a highly impressive piece of architecture with a stone terrace leading up to the main house.
The property has lovely south facing terraces with glass balustrades and benefits from open views over the Tyne Valley. The courtyard to the western elevation provides parking for many cars and there is a separate gravel driveway and a four car garage with a sedum roof.
Springfield House itself is delightful and provides some of the most impressive family accommodation in the north of England, with period styling and its modern luxury fittings.
The stone pillared entrance portico leads to the vestibule, with cloakroom and separate wc. The inner hallway leads through to the western hall, with its magnificent fireplace with granite surround and double archway through to the central hall with marble flooring. This room enjoys a southerly aspect and has an elegant wide staircase, contemporary Portuguese chandelier, and double doors onto the terrace. Beneath the stairs is a beautifully presented wine cellar with cedar wood wine racks and cabinets.
The principal reception rooms include a magnificent office with Clive Christian fitted furniture including shelving, cabinetry, display units, free standing desk and a fabulous fireplace. The drawing room is located to the other side of the hallway with a feature fireplace and ornate ceiling, as well as bay window overlooking the gardens.
Off the hallway there is another office with slide and hide fitted cabinetry with shelving to the sides.
Connecting from the second office, there is a fabulous cinema and games room, with large projector screen, pool table, and corner cocktail bar with barstools, illuminated shelving, fridge, dishwasher, and draught ale pump.
The recently remodelled kitchen is stunning and creates a modern space offering bespoke Lignum kitchen wall and floor cabinetry, central island, Dekton work surfaces, and porcelain floor tiles. There are a wide range of integrated appliances including Sub Zero fridge freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher, microwave oven, Total Control electric AGA with AGA companion set with an inglenook with extractor oven. Leading to the side of the kitchen is a further wine store with relaxing snug area.
The kitchen then leads on to the family and dining area with a contemporary Planika fire and large wall mounted TV. This is a lovely bright room offering a lantern style roof to one side and Crittal door from the dining area leading out onto the sun terrace.
There is also a useful utility and laundry room leading to the gymnasium and downstairs shower room.
Returning to the principal hall, the elegant staircase connects to the first floor landing which links off to the master bedroom, with Juliet balcony, a luxury en-suite dressing room and en-suite bathroom with free standing bath, twin marble vanity wash basins, rainforest shower and WC. There are five further bedrooms, four of which have ensuite facilities and one benefiting from a dressing room. There is also a family bathroom.
The house has recently been updated to a very high standard and this is evident throughout and includes Crittall steel windows and screens, feature lighting by Portuguese designer Serip, and automated home control system for TV and media zones, heating, CCTV and security systems, as well as mood lighting.
The property still maintains many period features with panelled doors, ceiling roses and cornicing, door architraves and deep furnishings.
Externally, the tree house benefits from two floors to each turret with ladder access internally and a bridge adjoining them at the higher level.
Springfield House is located in one of the best areas of Northumberland, with easy access into Newcastle. Corbridge is very well regarded for its tasteful shops, its gourmet restaurants and excellent leisure facilities. The train station links easily into Newcastle and the A69 connects well into Tyneside and the International Airport.
A very special and luxurious house and one of the best family homes within the North East of England
