A stunning Newcastle mansion has hit the market in the highly sought after area of Jesmond's Golden Triangle.

Ryecroft on Castleton Grove in Jesmond was listed on Rightmove on April 2 and has an asking price of a cool £1,975,000.

There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms in the mammoth house, which comes with some very notable neighbours, including Newcastle United's Allan Saint-Maximin.

The detached family home was built in 1936 and modernisations now mean the property stretches over three floors.

As well as the huge and comfortable rooms, there's a home office, open plan dining room, cinema room, boot room and double width garage... and that's all only on the ground floor too.

There's a gallery landing on the first floor and multiple bedrooms with ensuites.

The grand entrance to the house is surrounded by well-kept flowers and shrubbery and the back porch lights up at night to make a magnificent hosting space.

Despite its age, the house's interior boasts plush modern furnishings that are nothing short of spectacular.

As well as all that, that's a large garden out back to boot.

The Rightmove tour includes a 360 widget that allows you to have a proper nosey inside the home without even booking a viewing.

That hefty price tag, just short of £2 million, includes the property's enviable location in Jesmond's Golden Triangle.

The Newcastle neighbourhood is known for its high student population, but a new little corner is a haven of its own.

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."

It is known that Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin resides in the area, following in the footsteps of Shola Ameobi, Kevin Nolan and Jonás Gutiérrez.

With Ryecroft on the market, maybe there will be another big name coming to the area.
