Gilesgate, Durham City, DH1£640,000 Offers in the Region of 4 Bedroom House
Offering considerable charm and character, 173 Gilesgate is a substantial Period detached family home dating back to the mid 1700's.
It is a Grade II listed building and has for many years been sympathetically maintained and restored very much in keeping with its unique style and character. It also enjoys Cathedral views from the top floor bedrooms and garden.
It is a visually appealing property with gas fired central heating and accommodation arranged over 3 floors. One of its main and unexpected features is a private and secluded rear garden extending to just under half an acre which is indeed a rare find for city centre properties. It offers a feeling of 'living in the country' and is yet only a few minutes walk of the immediate city centre with its comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities and amenities. There are also colourful and picturesque walks along the banks of the River Wear, which again is only a few minutes walk from the property itself. It is also ideally placed for commuting purposes being just off the A(690) Sunderland Highway which in turn offers access to the A1(M) Motorway Interchange at Carrville and therefore also handily placed for access to the A(19) Highway.
