Aykley Heads Farm enjoys the distinction of being one of the few remaining farm groupings situated within one of the old boundaries of the city of Durham. Perhaps the most striking feature of the farm is its peaceful rural settings which is all the more remarkable given itsproximity to the amenities of a large community such as Durham City.Research reveals the farm first belonged to the owners of Aykley Heads House, a listed countryhouse just a short walk away. Generations of the Dixon-Johnson family owned the Estate and no doubt "Home Farm" provided produce for the family and for commercial gain. The surviving cluster of farm buildings is set in a heavily tree screened site of approximately one acre and is anunusual mixture of style, red brick Victorian formality set against rustic "random rubble" stone.The reconstructed building provides a private south elevation overlooking good sized gardens and being situated at the end of the cul de sac offers a high degree of seclusion and privacy, planted copse and open gardens to the rear and side.This luxury five bedroom house provides a faithful reconstruction of the original stone and slatebuildings within close proximity using sandstone from the Dunhouse Quarry. The use of naturalstone also extends to the heads and sills of doors and windows, whilst jams are formed in a contrasting hand made brick to emulate a particularly attractive feature of the surrounding former barns. The building oozes character with an impressive array of accommodation on bothground floor which includes a galleried landing, breakfasting kitchen, utility, garden room, lounge,dining room, music room and superb double storey study area with exposed beams and fully fitted oak units by Molen & Co.
