Elsdon, Newcastle Upon Tyne
An exciting opportunity to purchase a piece of Elsdon history and offering fantastic potential to create one stunning property, or maybe split into two, subject to necessary permissions. The vendors are seeking planning authority consent/confirmation that the premises may be in future used for residential occupation either as one unit or as two separate dwellings with potential for a two storey family home with garden and a one storey open plan maisonette with pied-a-terre/holiday letting possibilities. With a total of ten rooms and garden to one side we would urge viewing as essential to fully appreciate this excellent chance to create a home to one’s own personal tastes and requirements.
Dating back to 1835 as The Rectors School, and in more recent years as a Youth Centre and then a recording studio, this wonderful property is part of the original fabric of Elsdon village and is set in a wonderful commanding position within it. Overlooking 12th Century St Cuthberts Church and close to the historic 13th Century Pele Tower, its frontage is onto the enormous registered village green and enjoys far reaching views over adjoining farmland and hills. The village green still retains a complete pinfold where stray livestock were kept in years past pending payment of a fine by their owners, and Elsdon, being formerly the capital of Redesdale, contains a very fine example of a Motte and Bailey Castle in addition to the Pele Tower and ancient church. Present day Elsdon is a thriving Northumbrian Village which offers rural living but is within commuting distance to Newcastle upon Tyne and Hexham as well as North of the border to Scotland.
