I have to admit something: I love the Geordie accent. I also love Paul Gascoigne. Alan Shearer? Not so much. With an incredible football team and plenty of great players, I suspect the most expensive houses in Newcastle are owned by footballers.
So how rich do you have to be to buy one of the most expensive homes in Newcastle. Well, you either need to be a sports retail tycoon or a footballer. No other option really with the biggest mansions in Newcastle going for well over £1m each.
Ponteland is the most expensive area in Newcastle, with houses selling for an average of £2.8 million along Runnymede Road, which is the most expensive road in Newcastle.
1. Runnymede Road, Ponteland, Newcastle – £5,800,000
The most expensive house in Newcastle is £5.8m and I think we all know who it belongs to. The most famous footballer in the city. It’s Alan Shearer’s house, of course! We don’t have any photos from the inside, but thanks to Google Maps we can see how big it is on the outside!
Two northern powerhouses, but which city has the most expensive houses? Leeds or Newcastle?
2. Runnymede Road, Ponteland, Newcastle – £5,000,000
Runnymede Road is the millionaire’s row in Newcastle. It’s where you’ll find the biggest and most expensive houses in Newcastle. Located just to the north of the city, if you’re a footballer, then you probably live along this road. Unfortunately we don’t have any photos of what this house looks like on the inside, but we can see how big it is on Google Maps!
3. Adderstone Crescent, Newcastle – £4,750,000
We know that Runnymede Road is the most expensive road in Newcastle, but Adderstone Crescent comes in a close second and is closer to the city centre. You’ll find lots of mansions in Newcastle along this road. This house is over 7,200 square feet and comes with six bedrooms and six bathrooms – most of which are bigger than the apartment where I live in London! Oddly, for a multi-million pound house, it doesn’t have any private pool or home cinema setup.
4. Adderstone Crescent, Newcastle – £3,750,000
Another multi-million pound house in Newcastle along the second most expensive road in the city. Unfortunately we don’t have any photos of the inside to show you, but surely it belongs to one of the Newcastle United players?
5. Glenbrae, Jesmond Park West, Newcastle – £3,500,000
The second most expensive area in Newcastle after Ponteland is Jesmond. You’ll find lots of mansions in this part of the city like this one for a cool £3.5m. It is one of the biggest mansions in Newcastle, covering over 8,100 square feet. The average family home in the UK is around 1,200 square feet. This mansion comes with six bedrooms and five bathrooms. There’s a private home cinema to enjoy the latest blockbuster movies on the big screen.
6. Montagu Avenue, Gosforth, Newcastle – £3,000,000
Another posh area of Newcastle is Gosforth where you’ll find multi-millionaires living. Most of them are footballers, but there are other business owners living here as well. This incredible house has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. You could have the whole family over for Christmas and still have enough rooms to spare.
7. Melbury Road, Newcastle – £2,995,000
I’m going to go on record and say that this is the finest house in Newcastle. The estate agents say that the owners refurbished the house with no expense spared and I have to say that I 100% agree with them. This house wouldn’t look out of place in Chelsea or Kensington. It’s not going to be to everyone’s taste, of course, but you can’t deny that it is extremely lavish and exceptionally well done. And for just £3m it is less than 10% of what you would pay for the same kind of property in London. What do you think?
8. Jesmond Park East, Newcastle – £2,700,000
If you like your homes to have a rustic character and an Edwardian feel, then you’ll like this mansion in Newcastle. It’s a little too dated for my liking with a bit too much floral patterns. It’s been on the market for over two years, so perhaps others agree with me. If I’m going to drop a chunk of change on a mansion like this, I don’t want to spend another chunk to refurbish the entire property! I do like the huge conservatory on the back of the property though. It comes with seven bedrooms and three bathrooms, so plenty of space to have the family come over and stay.
9. The Grove, Gosforth, Newcastle – £2,575,000
This mansion in Gosforth has been beautifully decorated on the inside with some real sophisticated decor along with a modern touch. I’m loving what the owners have done with the place. Your £2.5m buys you a five-bedroom family home that includes a private home cinema.
10. Ashbourne, Jesmond Dene Road, Jesmond, Newcastle – £2,500,000
Inspired by the art deco movement of the 1930s, this architect-designed house won’t be to everyone’s taste, which perhaps explains why it hasn’t sold after being on the market for over a year. The situation is brilliant, in Jesmond, and you get 3,000 square feet of living space across a single floor which includes four bedrooms and three reception rooms. Still, given its size and unique architectural style, it seems to be priced too high for what you get.
11. Darras Road, Darras Hall, Ponteland – £2,500,000
To illustrate my last point in the property above, if you have £2.5m to spend on a home, then you could get this magnificent six-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion. It covers over 10,000 square feet which makes it the biggest house in Newcastle. It comes with all the modern amenities you’d expect from a millionaire’s house with a private indoor swimming pool, a gym, and a private home cinema.
12. Adderstone Crescent, Newcastle – £2,310,000
Another Edwardian-style house on millionaire’s row in Newcastle. Adderstone Crescent is one of the poshest areas in Newcastle as you can see by this house. The interiors are a little bit dated, but still well done overall. I particularly like the summer house / conservatory on the back of the property.
