Full description

Offered for sale with no onward chain, this is a rare opportunity to purchase not just a substantial home but adjoining land with approved planning permission for a two bedroom townhouse to replace the current garage.


Prominently located, this is a substantial character property that offers a wealth of space and options, enhanced further by the approval of planning permission for the erection of a two storey dwelling.

The home itself is spacious and filled with character, from brick fireplace insets to the multi fuel stove even down to the vintage style latched door handles. The property comprises of an entrance lobby, lounge, dining room and large kitchen/breakfast room which leads onto the rear porch and then out to the rear gardens. To the first floor is the bathroom and three good sized bedrooms. Externally to the rear is a pleasant garden area and the garage is to the side which is the site of the proposed new dwelling.

Rarely does such an opportunity arise to purchase a versatile property that stands in it's own right as a great home that comes with the additional potential of building another home. Given the popularity of the location with it being so close to the city centre one way and the countryside and some fantastic walks the other way, both the home that is in place and the new potential property will appeal to a huge cross section of buyers; from first time buyers through to investors so we strongly recommend viewing the home and the planning documentation to see what a great opportunity this is! EPC Rating D. A full copy of the EPC is available upon request.


Nevilles Cross Bank lies approximately one mile from Durham City centre and is positioned close to the A167 allowing for easy access out of the City. The property is fantastically situated for the catchment area of schools, most notably being within the immediate vicinity of Neville's Cross Primary School and Durham Johnston.

Our View
