We are delighted to offer for sale this substantial four bedroomed mid-terraced town house situated within Durham City centre. It has been owned for a considerable number of years by our clients and lovingly cared for and restored during their occupancy.
The property itself retains many period features including moulded cornices and ceiling roses, and four bay-windowed rooms. Internal inspection is necessary to fully appreciate the size and quality of the accommodation on offer. The floor plan briefly comprises entrance lobby, hallway, WC, open plan lounge and sitting room with bay windows to either end. On the lower ground floor there is a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom with Potterton combi boiler (replaced in February 2022) and door leading out to the terraced rear garden. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. On the half-landing there is an attractive stained glass period picture window. To the second floor there are two further bedrooms and an additional bathroom. Externally there is an attractive courtyard garden to the rear of the property with flowering shrubs and borders, as well as a detached two-room outhouse which could be converted to provide an office/workspace, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. With delightful rooftop views, all in all this is an impressive and spacious family home rarely available within Durham.
The Avenue is pleasantly situated, close to the heart of historic Durham City and to many of the University and College buildings. It lies within walking distance of a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities, the railway station and an excellent choice of primary and secondary schools. The Avenue is well placed for commuting purposes as it is a short drive from the A(690) Durham to Sunderland Highway which in turn provides access to the A1(M) Motorway.
