Summerhill Square £950,000 Freehold REF: NE1649


This substantial three storey, four floor mid terrace property was originally the Diocesan Home for Girls which was converted into a Synagogue in 1924.  The Synagogue closed in 1969 and the building was then converted into offices and a design studio in 1981.


The property forms part of a terrace within the Summerhill Conservation Area which is based around a late Georgian residential suburb and climbs the hill westwards out of Newcastle City centre.  The Square is an unique environment within easy walking distance of the City centre and there are also good public transport links nearby. 

The terraced properties within the Square overlook a central green space which comprises a public park, a bowling green and private gardens for the houses.

Newcastle grew from Roman (or possible earlier) origins, at an important defensive and bridging point in the Tyne Valley, to become the regional capital.  The wealthy coal, manufacturing and ship-building industries brought huge population growth and physical expansion during the late 18th and 19th centuries.
