Property Overview

The opportunity to live in a stately home may be an impossible fantasy for most, until now. Foss House, in the West Wing of Brough Hall, makes the dream of taking up residence in a mansion in the country a reality.
This special property dates in part to the 15th century but considerable additions and alterations that took place in the 17th and 18 centuries made it the impressive mansion it is today. A pillared stone gateway and sweeping drive across estate parkland and over Foss Bridge bring you to the hall.
It was built originally for the de Burgh family, moving to the Lawson family in 1575 when it was inherited by Elizabeth de Burgh who was married to Ralph Lawson, a wealthy merchant in Newcastle. It stayed in the Lawson family for 400 years until it was restored and divided into individual apartments in 1979 and made available on a leasehold arrangement.
Foss House occupies part of the ground floor and some first floor of the West Wing and retains superb period features within a spacious three-bedroom apartment packed with historic character and charm.
The stone flagged entrance hall opens into a substantial open plan living space comprising morning room, drawing room and dining area beneath a minstrels’ gallery that bears the Lawson family coat of arms and makes an ideal study, sitting room or library.
Stunning and supremely elegant, the space was part of the original property’s ballroom and boasts a spectacular Adam-style ceiling as centrepiece. The drawing room area focuses on the stone fireplace with panelled chimney breast, illuminated by natural light pouring in through a full height Georgian window with shutters.
The morning room section is at the front and benefits from two more large windows with seats beneath from which to admire views across the park.
The well appointed kitchen also looks out over the estate and has recently been refitted with a range of sage coloured oak units with granite work surfaces and integral appliances.

Continued:- - All the bedroom and bathroom accommodation is located together around an inner hallway.
The master suite, with period plaster mouldings and cornice, is a generous space and comes with a full size en suite bathroom. Stairs lead up to the gallery and a dedicated private dressing area providing excellent built-in storage.
The remaining two bedrooms – one is dual aspect with large windows and shutters and built-in wardrobes; the other overlooks the bridge and park from a window seat – share a family bathroom.
Foss House benefits from a beautiful outlook across the estate and private outdoor space with gardens to the side and rear with lawns, established borders and two patio areas for sitting or dining. The property also comes with a double garage.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
