A true hidden gem, Highways is a rare and outstanding opportunity to elevate a beautiful and substantial property into a superb family home with space for a potential business or the development of a further dwelling subject to permissions, in a convenient County Durham location.

For an equestrian family, it has stables and land, while a 60ft garage and workshops would seem to be ideal for those seeking storage for vehicles, either the owner themselves or tenants.

Extremely private behind stone walls and double gates, the house is approached via a sweeping, tarmac drive leading to a large parking area, detached garage and the attractive front door.

Whilst being in need of modernisation, the house currently has five bedrooms and four reception rooms over three floors. Again, the potential to create spacious interiors on a large scale is immense, and the outdoor area offers options for extending should additional space be required.

The house stands in established, pretty gardens with paths and planted borders that are well maintained and divided into different areas with hedging and walls. There is a pond, greenhouse and a raised stone patio overlooking the garden and picturesque paddock. Fully fenced and bordered by attractive trees it offers a tranquil home for horses at the end of the garden, with the timber stable block conveniently positioned nearby.

Beyond the many mature trees are fields and far reaching views of open countryside and the hills.

Highways is a delightful property and it is anticipated that interest will be high given the size of the plot, the facilities and the beautiful setting.


High Etherley itself is a pleasant village with a church, pubs and a rural character, yet is just four miles from Bishop Auckland and easily accessible from the A1(M) and other major routes. Including Darlington to the South, Durham City to the West.

Surrounded by open countryside and close to an area of outstanding natural beauty including the picturesque area of Hamsterley Forrest, where there is an abundance of outdoor activities and walking trails throughout the Forrest.
