Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Stoneyhurst is a substantial Victorian four storey terraced town house situated in one of the more popular areas of Durham City Centre.

Retaining many original features, it is a property of considerable charm and character. One of the earliest houses built in this part of Western Hill, Stoneyhurst is distinctive in the street. It stands out for the elegant sandstone frontage in a street of brick, and its turret crowns both the house and the rise of the hill. Internally it demonstrates an unusual spaciousness and versatility: the living room and drawing room are separated by a partition which opens to permit them to be used as one large space. Also spacious, two of the five bedrooms, extend almost to the width of the house. To the rear two elegant oriel windows, recently renewed, overlook a mature garden. The accommodation comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, lounge, cloaks and shower room. On the lower ground floor there is a kitchen and dining room and on the first floor there are two bedrooms and bathroom/wc. The top floor has a further three bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom. It has a pleasant and private mature garden to the rear, along with the added advantage of a garage which is accessed off Back Western Hill.

Albert Street occupies a superb position within the immediate City Centre close to Durham Johnston School, a good range of shopping and recreational facilities and amenities as well as many of the University and College buildings. Durham City is well placed for commuting purposes as it lies a short drive from the A1(M) Motorway Interchange which provides good road links to both North and South. The property is also within easy walking distance of the railway station.
