The first thing you’ll notice is that the location is exceptionally quiet, the back of the property looks down onto fields, a valley and Neasham village in the distance. It has well laid gardens with a number of fruit trees and those all important entertaining and relaxing areas, you are in your own oasis with only the odd tractor, lamb or pheasant passing by. 

Suitable for a range of buyers: families looking for a rural location, but still close to schools and outdoor pursuits; retired looking for a quieter way of life and full time workers looking for somewhere to escape town/city life, but still be close to commuter links. 

You journey off Neasham Road to find it, passing a tastefully developed residential only park exclusively for over 45 year olds, there’s extensive fencing, walls, trees and shrubs to ensure tranquility. The front of the house has a really large parking area for a number of vehicles with a double garage to the right with remote controlled door. There are only four bungalows in the Potteries development, making this an extremely quiet and secluded community. Additionally the road ends at the Potteries development and is only used by the four properties, therefore there is no through traffic. 

It’s surprising to find that this property is only 10 minutes from Darlington, it’s also close to the A66 and A1, 45 mins to Newcastle and just under an hour to Leeds. There is a bus stop within walking distance - buses to Neasham/Hurworth and into Darlington and two stations within less than 10 minutes.
