Nestled amongst the glorious landscape of the Northumbrian Tyne Valley, take a step back in time with this prominent and expansive Victorian stone-built country home known as ‘Apperley Dene.’ A home that was built to make memories, the team at Bricks & Mortar couldn’t be more humbled in offering this beautiful home for sale and allowing you the opportunity to make your own memories here.

Entered via wrought-iron electric gates, the meandering driveway opens out onto the grounds with an impressive feature turning circle marking the grandeur of this incredible plot. Set on approximately 8.5 acres, the property dates back to the mid-1800s and retains the charm and character of its time with its presentation and detailing.

Inset, stone steps lead to the solid Mahogany front door before you are led through to the entrance vestibule with ceramic tiling to the floor, decorative cornicing as found throughout most of the property and a connecting, convenient cloakroom with WC.

Reminiscent of the famous CS Lewis novel, the entrance hallway is the Narnia of the home providing a vast walkway spanning the length of the property and providing access to the majority of the property’s reception, leisure and bedrooms. It is rare to find such an elegant and vast hallway in a property; from its dual aspect windows, a sweeping staircase with beautiful spindles, elegant pillars and rounded archways for depth, this is certainly no ordinary walkway.

The drawing room is substantial in proportion offering a stunning outlook onto the rear garden from two windows, one of which a large bay. The room is centred around the focal working fireplace with intricate plaster mantle and marble hearth.

The grand dining room also includes a stunning fireplace and is a fantastic room for entertaining, bringing the outside in thanks to the quaint French doors as well as a sweeping bay window for a forward-facing projection of the front garden which faces North.

Head south down the hallway and to the farthest end is a secondary living room, formerly known as the’ School Room’ set on the corner aspect with dual views out to the garden along with a log burner for those cosy winter evenings.

Across the hall, pass your afternoons away in the ‘Billiard Room’ which is excellently proportioned including the central full-size Billiard table, brass downlights, fireplace with built-in cabinets either side and two windows, once of which has delightful integrated seating. From here, you can also access the garden room and a WC along with the rear courtyard, laundry room, work/storage room and gardens.

Returning to the entrance vestibule, take a left along the cosy corridor and you are met with the charming kitchen and diner which is also used as an open plan family room. The exposed brickwork to the back wall and central archway compliment the country home aesthetic along with the white shaker units and combination wooden and granite work surfaces. There is a focal island along with electric AGA, ample storage and quality tiled flooring. A patio door also leads out to an appealing seating area.

The ground floor also contains a utility room, dark room, cloakroom and cellar in addition to a secondary, former servant’s staircase.

Continuing with the style of the ground floor hallway, the central staircase opens out into an impressive open landing lit by a vast leaded window and of which links both wings of the property.

The master bedroom suite is to the North wing and accessed via its own dressing room with in-built floor to ceiling storage, dual aspect windows to the bedroom and to the opposite end of the dressing room, its own en-suite bathroom.

There are four further generous bedrooms to the first floor, the South bedrooms including fitted wardrobes. Nestled in between is a bathroom and sauna. There is an additional bathroom off the landing and across from the middle bedrooms.

Returning to the servant’s staircase will grant you access to the attic rooms with three further rooms and storage which could be used as additional living space, bedrooms or transformed into a self-serving apartment.


Whilst the property itself is certainly a monumentally proportioned home, Apperley Dene truly has the wow factor when it comes to the land it sits on.

Contained within its 8.5 acres, there is a full sized- tennis court, vast driveway which leads to a rear car port with space for multiple vehicles, courtyard and of course, the beautifully landscaped gardens which have been zoned for various seating areas.

The front lawn leads out to the paddock and surrounding wooded area and to the rear and sides of the property, the gardens include various trees and shrubbery.

A Lawful Development Certificate is also in place to approve future construction of a gym/solarium and office as a separate building (18/02870/CLPROP- Northumberland County Council)


Whilst an incredibly quiet and homely plot, the property certainly is not isolated from the numerous attractions and amenities on offer in its surrounding locality.

Positioned within Stocksfield, on the River Tyne’s south bank, there is a golf course, tennis club, doctor’s surgery, post office and village shops to name a few.

There is a perfect blend of country life yet easy access to the City should you choose. Scenic walks are aplenty as the property is close to streams/rivers and picturesque walks through the woodlands.
As a commuter town, Newcastle upon Tyne is easily reached but the popular towns of Hexham and Corbridge are just a short drive away with their various tea rooms, country pubs and restaurants in addition to an abundance of leisure activities.

There are local schools in close proximity with a state primary school to the village, senior school in Hexham and Prudhoe. There is also access to the nearby private school Mowden Hall.

Newcastle City Centre is approximately a 30 minute drive away from the property and there is a train station at Stocksfield for links cross-country.
