This contemporary ground-floor apartment makes the most of its layout offering a spacious living room/diner, a modern galley-style kitchen, a master bedroom with its own en-suite facilities, a second double bedroom and a well-appointed bathroom.

Fully double glazed and equipped with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system, the property is ideal for a young professional or perhaps a couple looking for their first home within a mile of the city centre and just 800m from the train station.



The front door opens onto a reception hall, fitted with a hard-wearing wooden floor, decorated in bright neutral colours and including internal doors to each of the rooms.
Another door immediately to the right also opens onto a cloakroom cupboard large enough to store household appliances if required. Another cupboard is also located on the left adjacent to the bathroom.

23’ 3” (7.08m) x 9’ 7” (2.93m)

Equipped with a stylish, wooden floor, the living room/diner is comfortably large enough to accommodate a large living area as well as a dining table and chairs, with ample natural light from three double-glazed windows and a separate picture window at one end of the room.

Heating is provided by both a wall-mounted radiator as well as a living flame gas fire, set beneath a solid timber mantle. The current set up uses one end of the room also doubles as an office space, with power sockets and a wifi connection beneath a work station.

Additional lighting is provided by an overhead spotlight array controlled by a dimmer switch with the sense of space and light enhanced significantly by a mirrored wall located opposite the windows.

10’ 8” (3.25m) x 5’ 10” (1.79m)

Another large mirror also adds light and a similar sense of space to the modern, galley-style kitchen, equipped with an electric oven and hob and a four-ring gas hob beneath an extractor.

A stainless steel sink and drainer are located beneath a picture window with ample storage provided by wood-finish base and wall units fitted above and below rolled laminate worktops.
The kitchen also includes an integral wine rack, a dedicated space for an upright fridge/freezer, overhead LED spotlights and splash-back tiles above all the surfaces.

8’ 10” (2.68m) x 8’ 2” (2.50m)

Bedroom 1 incorporates the en-suite and, as such, could be considered as a separate dressing room if the buyer decided to use Bedroom 2 as their main sleeping quarters.

Bedroom 1 includes a wooden floor, pleasant double-glazed picture windows overlooking shaded gardens and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.

The adjoining en-suite is equipped with a dual-flush WC, a pedestal hand basin and a tiled recessed shower cubicle and a second radiator beneath a wall-mounted towel rail.

13’ 9” (4.19m) x 10 ‘ 2” (3.09m)

The larger of the two bedrooms, Bedroom 2 includes casement windows overlooking the front of the property with a wall-mounted radiator beneath. The room is also equipped with a wood floor and an overhead spotlight array and is currently decorated in neutral colours.

8’ 4” (2.55m) x 6’ 9” (2.07m)

Similar in design to the en-suite in Bedroom 1, the house bathroom also includes a mirrored wall above the white panel bath, which includes mixer taps and a shower attachment.

The dual flush loo is located adjacent to a drop-in hand basin set within a double-doored vanity unit. A wooden washstand is positioned to the right while to the left is a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.


The apartment is within a Victorian-style block surrounded by pleasant, lawned gardens lined with mature trees and shrubs offering variety and shade. Off-street car parking is available for residents on a spur off Dryburn Way, with surrounding streets controlled by permit parking regulations.


Old Dryburn Way is convenient for the University Hospital and within easy reach of open green spaces, including Jubilee Walk and the Aykley Heads Recreation Ground as well as the Freeman’s Way Leisure Centre, which boasts a pool, fitness rooms and a gym.

Other amenities within easy reach also include the Aykley Wood Nature Reserve while the Durham Constabulary, the city’s Land Registry Office and the county council headquarters are all nearby.

Some services also run to the Arnison Centre at Pity Me just a mile and a half to the north which is home to a Marks and Spencer, Boots and Sainsbury’s superstore, a number of clothes brands and fast food eateries.

Central Durham and the River Wear are also less than a mile to the south and home to everything you would expect from a modern city centre, including more well-known high street brands, a cinema, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes and bars as well as the city’s famous cathedral.
Trains from the station just over 800m from the apartment also offer regular and direct LNER, TransPennine and Cross Country services to destinations including Newcastle, Liverpool, Edinburgh and London’s King’s Cross.
