Lanchester is a highly sought-after village situated in North West Durham with good communication links via the nearby A691. Durham City, with its world heritage sites of the Castle and Cathedral, is situated only 8 miles to the South East.
The village has a variety of local and national shops along its quiet front street together with local pubs and restaurants. Unlike most Co. Durham villages, Lanchester’s economy was centered around Agriculture and not coal, hence having a different feel and vibrancy with a wide variety of housing types.
The village has the benefit of two very good schools for primary and secondary education (All Saints Lanchester E.P and Saint Bede’s Catholic school and sixth form college). There are a number of well regarded state and private schools in the nearby Durham City as well as private nurseries nearby.
‘The Pastures’ comprises of a large rectangular shaped site, situated on the southern boundary of the village less than 1 mile from the village centre. Access is via Ford Road (B6301) through The Paddock with the bungalow (no 7) being demolished to provide access to The Pastures.
The site has the benefit of outline planning for the development of 14 detached residential dwellings. The developer is proposing to service the site to allow individual buyers the opportunity to purchase a fully serviced plot on a design and build basis to their own specification. The site will benefit from mains gas, electric, water and drainage system. The access road will be adopted by the LA once completed to their standard. Any communal costs will be contributed by way of a small communal charge (details to be agreed) but the plots will be sold FREEHOLD.
