Property 360 Tour
A once in a generation opportunity to own one of Washington village’s most prominent homes.
Securely gated and hidden behind two metre high stone walls Washington House is a superbly appointed converted Edwardian Farmhouse on the edge of the village green, with the added benefit of a fully redesigned and fully consented plan for continued 21st Century living.
With an array of outbuildings and a secure large walled garden, this five-bedroom property has not come to market for 55 years.
The Property has covered parking for up to 7 cars and guest parking for 5 more. Its outbuildings have a myriad of uses and would provide endless distraction for a keen motor hobbyist. Briefly Comprising: Entrance Porch, Formal Lounge, Sunroom, Formal Lounge/Dining Room, Shower Room, Kitchen and a Utility. To the First Floor: Four Bedrooms and Two Bathrooms. Externally a Two Garages, Car Ports, Large Garden and a One Bedroom Annex with En-Suite and Kitchen/Living Room.
Whilst very private and secure, with tall hedging keeping out the view from neighbouring properties, a 300-metre walk takes you to two great restaurants and two pubs including the famous Washington Arms.
The extensive grounds of Washington House are flat, south facing and shielded from winds by high stone walls. The site once housed the home farm to the neighbouring Washington Old Hall, the ancestral home of George Washington 1st President of The United States of America. Remains of the old farmhouse form some of the outbuildings.
The property is not listed but lies in a conservation area and is surrounded by seven grade one and two listed buildings which ensure the preservation of the unique character of the village. The property also adjoins Washington Village Church.
Washington Village is an historic oasis in what is an industrial nexus of industry roughly equidistant from Newcastle, Durham and Sunderland. Easily access to motorways, railways and airports. The village has become a food and drink destination with its multi award winning floral displays, it hosts an unrivalled array of retail offerings, village store, fish and chip shop, Chinese takeaway, three restaurants and cafes, several hair and beauty salons, four great family-oriented pubs, a kitchen studio and even a veterinary surgery.
Plans have been approved by Sunderland City Council, Application reference 21/01175/FUL.
Plans are available in the data room and comprise of the conversion to one of the outbuildings to join the house to an extended guest annex to allow for multi-generational living or staff quarters and another to a gym, ground floor rearrangement of stairs and a central living hub created at the rear of the house with a dining room extension. A redesigned first floor with five large bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Washington House may not come back to market in most people’s lifetime and should be viewed to be fully appreciated.
