Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Undoubtedly one of the most prestigious Town Houses to have been offered for sale in the Durham City housing market in recent years.

Struan is a substantial double fronted listed four storey mid terraced property offering spacious generously proportioned accommodation with gas fired central heating. Purchased by our clients in 2000, it has been thoughtfully and painstakingly restored to provide a home very much in keeping with its age and era.

This visually appealing family home, which could be available with early vacant possession, is full of charm and character and offers accommodation which briefly comprises: entrance lobby, reception hall 29' x 17'4" with brick fireplace and period ornate carved oak overmantel thought to date back to 1645 and having been brought from one of the country homes belonging to Lord Robertson of Scotland when the property was used as his Town House in the 19th Century. Also within the hall and continuing to the upper floors is a magnificent central staircase. There is a dining room 17'3" x 14'10" with marble fireplace, well fitted kitchen, useful utility room, along with a rear lobby and garden room off. On the first floor the main landing provides access to a superb drawing room 21'6" x 16' plus bay window, sitting room with bay window, bedroom and bathroom/wc, along with a small and very useful kitchenette. To the second floor there is a landing, master bedroom with dressing room, two further bedrooms and bathroom with a separate wc. On the third floor there are three further bedrooms and a shower room/wc. It is further complemented by a pleasant and mature well screened garden to the rear.

South Street occupies a commanding position high up on the banks of the River Wear opposite the Castle and Cathedral, a World Heritage site, and within walking distance of the immediate City Centre with its many shopping and recreational facilities to hand and is one of the most popular and sought after streets within the City.

It is renowned for its stunning views with this particular property having arguably one of the best outlooks because of its situation within the street. This is indeed a rare opportunity to acquire such a well proportioned individual home of character, in a most desirable location and we strongly recommend early internal inspection.
