Set in 2.85 acres, a 6-bedroom Grade II listed house with planning permission

Dalton House is believed to have been originally built at the beginning of the 19th century and was later significantly altered and extended to provide an impressive stone built house. The property enjoys beautiful grounds and gardens that extend to 2.85 acres including a fabulous tree-lined tarmac entrance drive which leads up to an open courtyard with parking for many cars. The house has the benefit of a small grazing paddock at the front, and to the rear, well kept manicured lawned gardens with flower and shrub borders and stone terracing providing wonderful entertaining space.

The house has excellent detached outbuildings, including a large garage and stable with planning permission to convert to a cottage, studio /office, log stores, gardener’s w.c. and oil tank under a pantiled roof. The ample accommodation provides a large family home with wonderful views over the terrace gardens to the south and lawns at the rear. At present the west wing, with its own private entrance, is currently being used as a successful Bed and Breakfast.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom to the front has a large en suite bathroom, and there are six double bedrooms in total, with three family bathrooms. The first floor also accommodates a linen room or seventh bedroom.

Planning: Listed building consent was granted for the conversion of the existing garage and outbuildings (19/04299/LBC) on 5th June 2020 to form an ancillary dwelling. The consented development will provide a dwelling benefitting from an open-plan kitchen/living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, will all accommodation provided over one storey. A full set of planning documents and drawings are available upon request.

A planning application and request for listed building consent for a new oil tank of sufficient capacity to serve both Dalton House and the consented ancillary dwelling has been submitted by the vendors. These applications (20/02690/FUL and 20/02691/LBC) are currently pending.

Listed building consent and planning permission were both granted for the construction of a tennis court and work has commenced (11/02241/FUL & 11/02242/LBC).

Prospective purchasers are advised that they must make their own enquiries of Northumberland County Council.

This property has 2.84 acres of land.

Outside

Dalton House is set within enchanting gardens that are an attractive and important attribute, and a perfect foil for the house. They have been thoughtfully laid out and comprise extensive areas of lawn, mature fruit trees, established flower beds and borders, and a large paved terrace providing ideal ‘al fresco’ dining and relaxation space. Mature shrubs and trees provide a high degree of privacy and the charm of the building has been enhanced with climbing plants including wistaria.

Situation

Dalton is a small hamlet in rural Northumberland. It is a peaceful and pretty part of the region, yet is blessed with a good degree of accessibility. There is a good range of shops, first class schools and other amenities in Ponteland, and a little further afield, the towns of Corbridge, Morpeth and Hexham. Newcastle International Airport lies about 6 miles east from Dalton and there are direct rail links to London Kings Cross and Edinburgh from Newcastle. The transport routes of A1, A69, A68 and A696 are all within easy reach.

Schools in the area include Ponteland First, Middle and High Schools, Darras Hall First School, and Richard Coates Church of England Middle School.

Leisure facilities on hand include golf courses at Matfen, Ponteland and Slaley Hall, and walking, cyling and riding in the Northumberland Countryside. Attractions for all the family include Hadrians Wall, Wallington House and gardens, Belsay Hall, Cragside, and Alnwick Castle and garden (Harry Potter).

Directions

From Ponteland, drive north on the A696 towards Belsay. Turn left signposted Stamfordham and follow the road until you reach a t-junction where you will turn left. Take the next turning on the right into Paddock Line (signposted Stamfordham) and continue approximately half a mile into the village of Dalton. Don’t follow your Sat Nav at this point as it can direct you into a farm. Instead, pass the red letterbox set into the wall on the right and travel for another 100m to the entrance to Dalton House on the right through the stone pillared gateposts.
