Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
6 Archery Rise is a fantastically light and generously proportioned 3-4 bedroom family home, which is not overlooked and is within easy walking distance of Durham City.

It has recently been fitted with a tasteful and timeless new kitchen, as well as a contemporary bathroom suite. The long front garden has a drive with space for four cars, in addition to a double garage. The outdoor spaces have been created to provide year-round enjoyment: the front garden is an absolute delight in the Spring with a carpet of snowdrops, leading to the front terrace, which is surprisingly private and a real sun-trap most of the day. It is in the catchment area for St Margaret's Primary School, which is within Archery Rise and also Durham Johnston Comprehensive, both of whom have been rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted. It is also very close to the highly regarded Durham School.

Briefly, the house comprises of: ground floor entrance hall, three double bedrooms, refurbished bathroom/WC, along with a useful utility room, which offers access to the rear garden. On the first floor there is a spacious open plan living/dining room with views to the front, along with a fourth bedroom/study, well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom/WC. It has the added advantage of a double garage with additional parking on the drive for four cars and there are mature garden areas to the front and rear.

Archery Rise is a unique location within Durham City, with individual, well spaced detached houses. There are beautiful walks direct from the house, including one along the river bank, with just a 20 minute walk to the World Heritage Site, which is Durham Cathedral and Castle, leading into the City centre and all Univerity departments and colleges. Archery Rise is also well placed for access to the major road network or Durham train station with direct trains to London.
