The property has everything you could ever want, but has been on the market for over 10 months

There's a seven-bedroom, gorgeous Jesmond mansion on the market that is fit for a true Geordie King.

The only problem? The magnificent property simply doesn't seem to be able to sell.

The Jesmond Park East house has been on the market for over 10 months, first listed back in March 2020.

With property experts Chancellors finding that the average time for a house to sell in the UK is currently 44 days, a drop on 50 days in 2020, the Jesmond mansion is in desperate need of a buyer.

The property was built around 1905 and is a detached period family home with plentiful space.

Its rooms are spread over three floors and there's a bountiful garden too.

There's the added privacy of electric gates and private parking, alongside a double garage, terraces and a summer house

On the ground floor is a grand, classic-looking entrance hall and cloakroom.

That runs into a magnificent sitting room and dining room.

On the first floor is a gallery landing, a master bedroom and three other bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom.

On the second floor is a further two bedrooms, an ensuite and a separate WC.

If you want to picture yourself and the army of friends you could have round for some housewarming drinks in the luxurious lodgings, there's a virtual tour on the Rightmove listing that will allow you to let your imagination run wild.

The house itself is found just East of the leafy Jesmond Dene, in a Tyneside property hotspot.

Some of Newcastle United's biggest stars, such as Allan Saint-Maximim, have purchased in Jesmond, despite its reputation as a rowdy student hub.

Speaking to NewcastleWorld about Jesmond's shifting faces, 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."

The grand seven-bedroom house is being sold by Rettie & Co. and, given how long it's been on the market, an offer slightly under valuation might even be accepted.

Nonetheless, you will still have to have a spare couple of million in your bank account!
