The Area
Toft Hill is placed on the excellent commuter route of the A68 which runs north to south. The village has ideal transport links for those wishing to retain their rural routes whilst having the flexibility and ease of being able to commute to the region’s major cities. Toft Hill itself offers a local village shop/newsagents, primary school, doctor’s surgery and a traditionally run public house all within 5 minutes walking distance of the property.

A wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities can be found within the neighbouring marketing towns of Bishop Auckland, Darlington and Wolsingham, from which there are links with the major commercial centres of the North East, either via road or via the east coast mainline railway.

The Property
Outline planning permission for the erection of a small development consisting of four detached dwellings has been granted. It is the perfect site for a developer who is looking for a small site or someone looking to self build their own home.

The site is a section of a former agricultural field and is located adjacent to Toft Hill Lane and the Sportsman Inn public house, on the outskirts of Toft Hill in a prominent and popular location with open views to the rear over neighbouring countryside. An existing gate for both pedestrian and vehicular access exists from the highway, however it is proposed that the entrance is changed to a more central position to benefit all for houses equally.
