Find a new home at Monkswood
Monkswood is our collection of new homes for sale in the semi-rural town of Sacriston in County Durham. With three and four-bedroom houses available, first-time buyers through to families looking for more space will find something perfectly suited to their needs.
The fabulous cathedral city of Durham is just 3 miles away, so this is a great location to make the most of all that's on offer there. From the open air and covered markets to the independent shops and cafés in the cobbled streets leading up to the cathedral, from the new shopping centres to the riverside walks, there's something for all the family in this compact and friendly city. If you're looking for the buzz of a very different type of city life, head into Newcastle upon Tyne. It's 15 miles to the north of Sacristan and you can stop off at the famous Metrocentre on the way.
