Quintessentially British, Durham City Mansion

Described as a “Quintessentially British Mansion” this rare piece of real estate really does look rather marvellous. You’ll get elevated views over the Cathedral and Castle, in-ceiling speakers throughout the 14 rooms, a handcrafted kitchen with Kashmir white granite and aubergine glass tops, a four oven Aga oversees a hand-carved walnut breakfast table. We could go on, but I’m sure you get the point. OTT for the OBE’s.
