The Coach House, Gosforth

BDaily // The Chronicle // Property Week | July '18:

"The Coach House, on The Drive in Gosforth, is poised to be transformed into luxury homes by FiftyTwo Group, which has teamed up with the property’s owners McDougall Dodds.

Subject to planning approval, the £8.5m scheme will retain all of the historic features of the building, which has been owned by family-run McDougall Dodds since the 1970s.

It is now working with FiftyTwo Group, which was set up by North East entrepreneurs Fergus Bell and Daniel Gibson and which attracted international interest in its conversion of the former Durham County Club.

The Coach House, together with the Gatehouse which is also located on The Drive, are the last remaining parts of Coxlodge Hall, a mansion built in Gosforth by Job Bulman in 1796, which occupied a site of more than 30 acres.

The magnificent house itself was destroyed by fire in 1877 but was rebuilt two years later and passed through a number of owners until it became a private school, eventually being demolished in 1939."
