A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a truly impressive residence boasting an elevated position within The Dell, which is one of the town's most prestigious and sought after residential locations. Bishop Auckland is home to the spectacular open air night show Kynren-An Epic Tale of England and is ideally situated for local amenities with a broad range of schools, shopping and recreational facilities within close proximity.

Set over three floors, this substantial property has been carefully designed for comfort and mutigenerational living. Space is another important benefit of the design, with all the rooms being generously proportioned both in floor area and ceiling height.
