Cellar Hill House & The Stables Cottage, Newbottle,


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Cellar Hill House has been part of the history of Newbottle for more than 300 years. Protected by a Grade II listing, it is a superior property with many original Georgian features that is believed to have been used both as a school and a hospital in the past.

Restoration of the highest quality returned the property to its original grandeur and today it offers a fine, three-storey family home with large gardens and living space to meet a variety of needs. The addition of a second adjacent property, The Stables, increases the options still further. For example, the three-bedroom second home could be the perfect answer to a multi-generational but independent family, as a business base, for Airbnb or as an investment property to rent.

From the outside, Cellar Hill boasts classic Georgian features including large sash windows.

Inside, it extends to nearly 4,500sq ft and has been carefully and lovingly restored with original features including working shutters, timber panelling, stripped wood flooring, coving and a feature arched window on the beautiful sweeping staircase.

The ground floor comprises three substantial reception rooms, a cinema room and a superb dining kitchen fitted with a range of high gloss units, integrated stainless steel appliances, a centre island, granite work surfaces and breakfast bar. The kitchen leads to a family room with feature fireplace and on to the cinema room. The layout and flow make it an ideal space for children or for entertaining. An elegant dining room and large living room, each with a period marble fireplace and Georgian windows, stand either side of the reception hallway at the front of the house.


The first floor layout also offers a range of opportunities for family and guests, being especially flexible for a family with older children who prefer their own private space. There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom to the first floor. The master suite has a walk-in wardrobe, extensive fitted storage and a glamorous, luxury bathroom with a claw-foot roll-top bath and walk-in shower; the second bedroom also has modern en suite facilities. The extensive second floor is a dedicated leisure space with a sauna, gym and games room.

The Stables is a more compact although equally charming home. The ground floor comprises a good size, dual aspect kitchen, a generous lounge and a study. The kitchen is fitted in contemporary country-style units in cream timber with complementary worktops and a range cooker, and there is plenty of space for dining. The lounge benefits from two beautiful large arched windows based on the original stable openings that allow in lots of natural light and make for a very attractive feature both from the inside and externally.

There are three bedrooms to the first floor, all with built-in storage. The master bedroom has exposed beams, a feature window and an en suite shower room. The remaining two bedrooms share a clean, modern and light family bathroom.

The Stables cobbled frontage leads into a block paved enclosed courtyard with small grassed area with space for outdoor dining and high walls and fencing for added privacy.

The gardens at Cellar Hill House are professionally landscaped with block paving, a large patio area and two ponds, as well as lawns, borders and established trees.
