An interesting development opportunity in the heart of the semi-rural village of Ebchester, just off the A694, that includes a substantial detached property - The Chelmsford pub - a building plot with planning permission for a detached house and a potential further development plot (for an additional house) in-between.
Now closed as a pub - and situated towards the front of an area of approximately 1.29 acres - 'The Chelmsford' is a substantial, traditional stone-built detached property, which is the subject of discussions with the County Council planning department over potential conversion/development and change of use. With accommodation over two floors, it comprises, to the ground floor: a bar and lounge area along with a catering kitchen and games area; the first floor provides a three-bedroomed flat with a lounge, kitchen and bathroom. There are mains services connected - electricity, gas and water/drainage - and the property has gas central heating. There is a car park area, decking with a pagoda and the land to the rear, which is where the one already approved detached house would be situated and, to one side, a second additional detached house could sit (with a favourable indication having been given by the planning office to outline plans for another three-bedroomed house).

Situated within the conservation area in Ebchester village, 'The Chelmsford' is situated along the A694 - next to the staggered crossroads with the B6309 - and has a popular local shop, a church and a school. There is easy access to Consett (3.3 miles) and Newcastle (13 miles) via the A694, and further to Durham (15 miles) on the A691, making this an excellent location from which to commute. It is also close to Northumberland and there are several countryside walks and cycle routes in the area and a local pub - The Derwent Walk Inn - half a mile up the bank.
