The city is highly accessible being within close proximity to the A1 to the east, along with being served by the East Coast Mainline which offers regular links to London and other major cities.
The site benefits from its secluded positioning and attractive views whilst being close to Durham city centre. The surrounding area has a wide range of nearby facilities and easily accessed transport routes including the city’s Park and Ride scheme which is within 5 minutes walking distance of the site.
The site currently accommodates a two storey Farmhouse along with a series of former farm buildings. It extends to 0.7 Ha (1.74 acres) and is accessed from the south west via an existing road which connects to the A691.

The surrounding area is predominantly undeveloped agricultural land to the north, east and west with Durham Fire Station located to the south.
We are advised that mains services are available; however, we would recommend that interested parties make their own enquiries of the utilities companies.
