The Durham House with gardens that impressed Alan Titchmarsh and has a medieval room

The historic Grade I listed mansion in Durham has beautiful gardens and an enviable position in the city center

Crook Hall is an impressive Grade I listed historic mansion with an enviable position in Durham.

One of the main features of the property are the gardens which have been described by famous television gardener and author Alan Titchmarsh as a ‘colorful flower tapestry’.

The property is for sale with a guideline price of £ 1.8million and is marketed by Savills, York and is set on 1.58 acres of land.

They say the gardens are designed as a series of rooms comprising the Cathedral Lawn, Shakespeare Garden, Silver and White Garden, and Walled Gardens with a larger lawned garden between the house and the lovely pond.

The property in Sidegate consists of Crook Hall with six reception rooms, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a medieval lobby with 6,517 square feet of living space.

There’s also the Coach House, downstairs offices with a one-bedroom apartment on the first floor with 1,053 square feet of living space.

The medieval hall is said to have been restored in the 1980s and, according to vendors, is well suited for commercial or private use as a party hall with a gallery of minstrels.

Overall this is a wonderful family home close to town amenities but with a rural feel as our photos on the Rightmove real estate website show.

It is within walking distance of Durham city center and train station and offers stunning views of a World Heritage Site
