Property Description

Full description

The Wing of Morton House offers a great development opportunity for those buyers seeking a substantial period house in a quiet, secluded location. The Grade II listed property requires some refurbishment and redesign, to create a kitchen/breakfast room from the two existing stores/boiler room and the division from the main house.

The three storey wing of the main house is located to the northern elevation, and has its own gravelled courtyard/driveway and garden area. The property is within easy reach of Sunderland 8.5 miles and Durham City only 7 miles, with excellent access to the major roads for commuting throughout the region.

The Wing of Morton House forms part of an impressive manor house dating to the 16th century, with a rich and interesting history dating back hundreds of years. The more recent front elevation, with the entrance dated 1709, has a typical Queen Anne façade.
