A stunning Ponteland property fit for Hollywood films has hit the market in Northumberland.

On that road, eight properties have sold since 2016 with an average sale price of an eye-watering £1,785,125.

The property is so extravagant that when it hit the market earlier this month, it did so with a hidden asking price.

With its spiralling staircase, expansive rooms, stretched lawns and even a river through the grounds, the Ponteland home looks fit to host a party the size of those thrown by the infamous Great Gatsby.

On the ground floor, an entrance vestibule leads into an imposing marble-floored reception hall with an elegant oak staircase.

Up those stairs is the first-floor landing and a secondary staircase down to the ground floor leisure suite, large storage cupboard, formal dining room, morning room, study, and inner hallway accessing the drawing room with views over the River Pont, family dining room, luxury kitchen and laundry room.

From the reception hall, stairs lead to the lower ground floor which boasts another marble-floored hallway, a gym with hot tub, cinema room, music room, snooker room and mahogany drinks bar... in fact, the place sounds even better than Gatsby's Long Island estate.

For bedrooms, there's a master suite with a fitted dressing room and luxury en-suite, as well as give further guest suites with walk-in wardrobes.

Speaking about the famous property road, Pat Robson Director Tim Nixon said: "Frequently dubbed ‘Millionaires Row’, Runnymede Road on the Darras Hall Estate has long been first choice amongst discerning celebrity and family buyers.

"Lined with luxury mansions, the generous plot sizes and long gated driveways ensure privacy and seclusion, while close proximity to Newcastle International Airport and Newcastle City Centre provides residents with the best of both worlds."
