    The opportunity to purchase a magnificent family residence in an idyllic location surrounded by woodland and countryside whilst being in walking distance of Durham City Centre. This fabulous property and grounds really does offer best of both worlds for those needing to be close to the City centre/train station for commuting and requiring a peaceful secluded and rural home which describes Frankland Farm perfectly.

    Frankland Farmhouse provides one of the most attractive and impressive farmhouse properties on the edge of Durham City. The property enjoys a stunning setting within open arable fields and is surrounded by woodland with bluebells to the western elevation. The views from the house and principal bedrooms are directly to the south and look towards Durham City and its magnificent cathedral and castle. This view gives a dramatic backdrop to the property throughout all seasons.

    Frankland Farm is approximately 1 mile away from the city centre of Durham and within easy walking access to the riverside, central shopping areas and excellent local hotels. The farmhouse is set amongst open arable land, yet has the convenience of Durham centre at the backdrop of this magnificent UNESCO world heritage site. The property enjoys good accessibility to the A1M linking easily into Tyneside to the north, Sunderland and Wearside to the east and Teesside to the south.

    The property itself occupies gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 10 acres and includes three grazing paddocks to the southern and western elevations of the gardens. The drive leads to the beautiful open lawned gardens which are surrounded by a terrace and patio. There is stream that runs through the dene below. The dene is adjacent to the delightful woodland which connects to the fence enclosed paddocks. There is an eastern courtyard to the side of the house providing secure parking. The courtyard leads to a pebbled drive and fence enclosed courtyard at the rear and a newly built six car garage. To the side and rear of the property there is a double garage and an old stable which has three loose boxes.
