This isn’t your average Victorian property. Having been extensively refurbished by the current owners, Springfield House in Corbridge has plenty of modern style, despite the fact it’s believed to have been around since 1874. With six beautiful bedrooms and a detached four-car garage, it’s the ideal family home, and is set in a quiet location just off Spoutwell Lane.
Sitting pretty behind a discreet pillared entrance with electric gates and TV monitors, you’re lead through tall evergreen trees, as the curved driveway takes you uphill to the west-facing courtyard and entrance drive.
When you reach the gardens you’ll find spectacular open lawns with plenty of space for outdoor activities. The twin tree house (which was built by the same company as The Alnwick Garden tree house) is an impressive piece of architecture that’s impossible to miss, and a stone terrace leads up to the main house.
Internally, period styling is combined with luxury fittings. Think magnificent fireplaces, chandeliers and archways complemented by marble flooring and fitted furniture.
The principal reception rooms include an office with fitted furniture including shelving, cabinetry, display units, a desk and an impressive fireplace. The drawing room is located to the other side of the hallway with another feature fireplace, as well as a bay window overlooking the gardens.
Alongside two offices (making WFH life convenient), there is a gym as well as a cinema and games room with a large projector screen, pool table, and corner cocktail bar. Perfect for when we can host guests again.
The recently remodelled kitchen is our highlight, and arguably the most modern aspect of the house, offering bespoke Lignum wall and floor cabinetry, a central island, Dekton work surfaces and porcelain floor tiles. From a Sub Zero fridge freezer to a Total Control electric AGA with AGA companion set, it has everything you need, whether you’re cooking a meal to enjoy in the family and dining area or out on the sun terrace. The bedrooms are just as luxurious too – think Juliet balconies, free-standing baths and rainforest showers.
