Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
6 Archery Rise is a fantastically light and generously proportioned 3-4 bedroom family home within walking distance of Durham City centre. It occupies an elevated position with panoramic views from the living room, which will treat you to stunning sunrises and sunsets. It has recently been fitted with a tasteful and timeless new kitchen, as well as a contemporary bathroom suite. The long front garden has a drive with space for four cars, in addition to a double garage. The outdoor spaces have been created to provide year-round enjoyment: the front garden is an absolute delight in spring with a carpet of snowdrops, leading to the front terrace, which is surprisingly private and a real sun-trap most of the day.

It is in the catchment area for St Margaret's Primary School, which is within Archery Rise and also Durham Johnson Comprehensive, both of whom have been rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted. It is also very close to the highly regarded Durham School.

Briefly, the house comprises of: ground floor entrance hall, three bedrooms and refurbished bathroom/wc, along with a useful utility room which offers access to the rear garden. On the first floor there is a spacious open plan lounge/dining room with views to the front, along with a fourth bedroom/study, well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom/wc. It has the added advantage of a double garage with additional parking on the drive for four cars and there are mature garden areas to the front and rear.

Archery Rise is a unique location within Durham City, with individual, well-spaced detached houses. There are beautiful walks direct from the house leading along the river bank, past the World Heritage Site, which is Durham Cathedral and Castle, leading into the City centre. Archery Rise is also well placed for access to the major road network or Durham train station with direct trains to London and Edinburgh and cross country destinations.

Subject to the usual planning conditions, the house offers scope for extension, in particular over the garage, for which there are concept architectural drawings.
