The Coach House, set back at 62 The Drive, provides an outstanding, and very rare, opportunity within one of the most sought-after areas of Gosforth. This property was constructed circa 1796 when it was linked to Coxlodge Hall which was built by Job Bullman, who lived in the Hall between 1796 – 1819. The Hall was destroyed by fire in 1877 and rebuilt 2 years later, before being eventually demolished in 1939. The Coach House is one of only two remaining buildings associated with Coxlodge Hall.

In 1950, The Coach House was turned into offices and bought by our clients in 1972. This impressive building provides an undoubted ‘trophy asset’ for any prospective property owner. The superb building, constructed in dressed stone, is Grade II Listed on its southern elevation and has two floors of fabulous office accommodation. The recent tenants, Summers Inman, intend on vacating the property in the early part of 2018, at which point it will be made available either to let or for sale. The suite of offices and buildings are constructed around a central courtyard on a site which extends to just over 0.68 acres with mature tree-lined boundaries.

The fine southern elevation of the building has its fabulous clock tower and extends at the rear with single and double storey wings centred around a lovely courtyard.

The rear semi-circular glass bay window is a particularly attractive feature which is a focal point of the central hall at ground and first floor level.

The existing commercial offices provide a fabulous arrangement of individual office suites, showing great potential to be divided into separate dwellings or one large single dwelling, or even potential for residential care uses.

The dressed stone fascia is matched by fabulous wood sash windows and pitched slate roof with stone chimney stacks and impressive windows, especially on the south elevation which reflects its heritage with the original coach house archways still evident. The site provides onsite parking for a number of cars and the whole of the building shows fantastic potential for a variety of uses.

The existing ground floor plate extends to around 10,000 sq.ft. with the east and western wings having lower ground floor accommodation in part and the main south wing having a full, double-height suite of offices providing a further internal area of circa 3000 sq.ft. This gives a total current floor area to the buildings of just over 13,000 sq.ft. plus basement areas. The building also enjoys a fabulous semi-circular entrance drive and courtyard with impressive parking facilities and lovely tall mature trees framing the site extremely well. The Coach House at The Drive is an iconic, fabulous and impressive building which could provide a stunning head office facility, a luxury home, a mix of apartments and houses, or residential care facility.

Further information:

The building is situated in the heart of popular residential accommodation with many high quality detached houses adjacent and neighbouring.
