Seller's Comments

We originally set out looking for a property in Durham City, but our final choice was made for us when we first saw 6 The Willows. We felt it really delivered the value for money that was so important to us in comparison to similar sized properties in Durham City. We immediately fell in love with the natural surroundings with a beautiful riverside setting all within a short walk to Bishop Auckland Market Place with all of the shops, services, historic sites, parkland and country walks, golf club, restaurants and pubs, - all this just on our doorstep.

The house stands in the grounds of an old orchard. Its mature fruit trees produce the juiciest of Victoria plums and great apples, plenty for family and friends who all look forward to the growing season.
