A former court has gone from misery to luxury following a transformation into a stunning £875,000 home.
The site of Eastwood House in Gosforth in Newcastle was once home to the local magistrates’ court, but is now a far more desirable destination.
The five-bedroom house stretches over three floors, where docks and cells have been replaced with light, airy rooms, with the smartest fixtures and fittings, reports Chronicle Live .
The master bedroom has a swish en-suite and its own dressing room, as well as a private balcony with views over the garden.
The large sitting room overlooks a glass-walled garden room with cosy underfloor heating.
The modern kitchen stretches over 31ft, with an open-plan design offering plenty of space for entertaining or relaxing with the family.
For more formal occasions, there’s also an adjoining dining room.
As you’d expect, the kitchen is fitted with all the necessities — after all, what home is complete without its own built-in wine fridge?
A spectacular wooden spiral staircase leads to a separate second-floor sitting room, with natural light flooding through it thanks to the glass roof of the garden room.
The other bedrooms are almost as luxurious as the master room, with plush carpets, large windows, and access to the luxury bathrooms.
The property stands just off Gosforth High Street, close to shops, restaurants and metro links, amid quiet streets with easy access to the city centre.
