Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A newly refurbished two bedroom semi detached home, offering potential to operate as a lucrative holiday cottage, due to its close proximity to Auckland Castle and the Kynren night show, or become a comfortable home suited to a variety of purchasers. Boasting a newly fitted kitchen and bathroom, rewired, new gas central heating system, redecorated and with new floorcoverings throughout. Viewing will impress the most discerning buyer.

This property lies just 300m walk from Auckland Castle, home of the Prince Bishops of Durham and recently reopened following major conservation work, the state rooms having been returned to their Georgian splendour. There is much to see including the largest private chapel in Europe, St Peter's Chapel, which dates back to the 12th Century. The castle is also home to thirteen life size portraits by Zurbaran, Jacob and His Twelve Sons. The Auckland Tower is a recently opened striking modern building with a 15m viewing platform from which can be seen the Castle, with its Walled Garden and Deer Park, the Market Place with French-influenced Town Hall, Mining Art Gallery, Faith Museum and in-progress Spanish Art Gallery.

Kynren, a spectacular live action outdoor theatre show operates in the summer months, just across the river from Wear Chare.

There are lots of other attractions close to Bishop Auckland, such Hamsterley Forest, Durham City, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the beautiful North East coast.

It is possible to commute easily to major centres such as Newcastle to the North, or Teesside and Darlington to the South, with easy access to the East Coast Main Line rail network and international airports.

This property would be as perfectly suited to operation as an Airbnb or holiday cottage, or to make a deceptively spacious and extremely comfortable home with a contemporary ambience.
