Jesmond’s Golden Triangle to Millionaire Row: The 5 most exciting property hotspots in the Newcastle area

These are the rising property hotspots in Newcastle and further afield

With the rise of flexible working due to Covid-19 and attempts of Levelling Up, more people are starting to look towards the North East to invest in property.

On top of that, big-earner footballers are arriving in the region with Newcastle United's owners on board, forming little clusters of affluent properties.

Many Geordies may now be aware of the Golden Triangle of houses that have popped up in the unlikely location of student-hub Jesmond, but that's not the only rising area for property investment.

NewcastleWorld speaks to Pat Robson about the five most sought after places to buy a house in Newcastle and across the North East.

Pat Robson Director Tim Nixon said: "Despite an enduring reputation as a student hub, there is of course a great deal more to Jesmond.

"Tucked away between Osborne Road and Jesmond Dene, the streets of Adderstone Crescent, Lindisfarne Road and Glastonbury Grove are collectively known as ‘The Golden Triangle’, and the houses there represent some of the most desirable in the city.

"These high-value homes enjoy privacy and seclusion however their super-central position, just moments from Jesmond’s famous restaurants, bars and shops ensure that residents fortunate enough to live there really do enjoy the best of both worlds."



This gorgeous Northumberland house hit the market earlier this month for a cool £1,750,000. It’s a seven bedroom country farmhouse that dates back to the late 19th century. It boasts incredible views over the countryside. The property has been refurbished over time and now there’s a fantastic leisure suite and two annexes. (Image: Rightmove)

"Corbridge is a popular and charming historic village, that sits on The River Tyne, within the heart of the picturesque Tyne Valley.

"The village offers a fine range of independent specialist shops and essential amenities, with Newcastle City Centre accessible via the east A69 (c 17.3 miles).

"A local First School and a Middle School, close proximity to country walks, and a range of impressive period homes ensure that Corbridge endures as arguably the most desirable Tyne Valley address."

"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."

"Much favoured by the Victorians, more than one century later, Marine Avenue remains The Coast’s best address.

"Testimony to its desirability, the street’s grand period villas rarely change hands, and proximity to the beach, good schools, and great amenities ensure that this address is the ultimate choice for those seeking a coastal lifestyle close to the city."



Certain streets in Gosforth are particular hotspots (Image: Google Streetview)

"Central Gosforth’s prestigious conservation area is home to some of the city’s most desirable properties.

"The tree-lined streets of The Grove, Graham Park Road and Elmfield Road attract big budget family buyers, drawn by the area’s fine late nineteenth-century architecture, mature gardens and proximity to outstanding amenities and schools.

"Close by, Montagu Avenue with its grand detached homes, some with exclusive gated direct access to The Town Moor, is another favourite."
