Description

The dwelling has been extensively refurbished internally and externally, including mains gas central heating throughout, re-wired electric, new water supply, and a new roof with reclaimed slate tiling, to provide luxury contemporary living space, while maintaining many period features.

Set within surprisingly large grounds with south facing private lawned and partly wooded/orchard gardens extending to approximately 1/3 of an acre together with useful outbuildings including a log store, and a double garage a short distance from the property.

The village of Shincliffe is generally seen as the most desirable and peaceful haven to live in Durham, with country living whilst still being within easy reach of the city, and with easy access to the A1 (M) north and south (2.5 miles).

Less than 10 minutes from the East Coast mainline station with rapid regular access to Newcastle (20 minutes) and London. Around a 40 minute commute to Newcastle International Airport. Local amenities in the village include the well-regarded Rose Tree and Seven Stars public Houses/restaurants, a church with a local community centre, and a well-equipped Garden Centre with a popular café.

The surrounding countryside offers many miles of trails for walking, riding, and cycling through woodland, fields and along the banks of the river Wear. Durham City offers a great mix of history, culture, shops, bars, and restaurants.

The cathedral and castle have been designated world heritage sites attracting tourists from around the world. The Gala Theatre offers yet another dimension to the city.

For leisure, there are swimming pools and golf courses within close proximity. Well regarded state and private secondary schools and the nearby sought after Shincliffe Primary & Junior School are within walking distance. There is a nursery and playgroup for pre-school children in the village.
