Halton Grange, Wall, Hexham
Northumberland NE46 4EF
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Halton Grange, constructed in 1913, was purchased by the
current owners in 2008 and provides a most stunning country
home. In recent times it has been extensively remodelled to
create this magnificent large family house.
Wall is a beautiful village with good accessibility to the nearby
market town of Hexham and the village of Corbridge. The Military
Road, A69 and a nearby rail connection, link Wall to Newcastle,
with its International Airport and large city support functions.
The house is situated in impressive grounds of 12.5 acres,
including two paddocks. The views to the west overlooking
surrounding countryside are stunning and the open grounds will
easily accommodate a helicopter; the magnificent gardens have
private sitting areas, water feature, pond, all weather tennis court,
and an orchard. There are an extensive arrangement of stables, a
professional workshop and outbuildings. The house has
dramatically altered since 2004, when a very substantial leisure
suite was added, involving the restoration of the old garage house
and Halton Grange Cottage. The cottage includes a one
bedroomed annexe apartment with a fully integrated kitchen,
shower room and lounge, ideal for independent relatives/live in
staff. The main house has a very high standard of interior design
and beautiful lighting; the double glazed windows have lovely
views over the surrounding gardens. The leisure suite provides
one of the finest that we have viewed in the north of England. It is
a very large room, constructed by a specialist architect, the pool
extending to 39’6 x 17’3 with an infinity style look. This very large
entertainment room, with recreation and gymnasium area, leads
to changing rooms, a Jacuzzi steam room, shower, solarium and
cloakroom/wc. Above the leisure suite is a first floor mezzanine
and cocktail bar with fitted kitchen and lounge area.

finest homes in the north of England. It is a rare find within a
beautiful part of Northumberland, quite discreet and private, yet
