1 The Towers is a rare opportunity to own a share of history wrapped up in a glamorous ground floor apartment. With far reaching views across the Durham Dales, it is one of six apartments converted from a Grade II listed 16th century building. Accessed via stone gate posts and a private drive, the three-bedroom / study property is safe and secure making it ideal for an array of purchasers or perhaps a holiday home. The sweeping drive leads to a large, gravelled car park surrounded by established gardens and trees, and the communal garden at the rear backs onto open countryside. Number 1 also has its own sunny courtyard garden with a summerhouse at the back. The building is accessed through a 16th century doorway with heavy arched door and an intercom system, leading into a communal reception hallway with lovely stone fireplace and arched window on the staircase. The character features continue inside the apartment with plaster moulding and timber sash windows and original shutters in the lounge and dining room, at the front of the property. This main reception space is very elegant and light with a feature fireplace, shelved alcove and neutral decor. Elsewhere this is a modern and comfortable apartment with gas central heating. Central to the layout is a large, contemporary kitchen comprising cream units with black worktops and space for daily dining. The master bedroom which has a large feature window, shares a contemporary family bathroom featuring a roll top bath. The property also benefits from a modern shower room situated alongside bedroom 3/study. As a leasehold property, it carries a monthly community charge which covers ground and gardens maintenance, window cleaning, Grade ll property insurance, reception and communal cleaning.
