Find your dream home near the cathedral city of Durham
These new homes are in a sought after rural location not far from the beautiful cathedral city of Durham, with its culture, history and great shopping. With a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes available, and convenient access to the area's main road routes, there's sure to be something for everyone.
The development is just under 2 miles from the little town of Houghton le Spring, so there are good local amenities nearby. It's also close to the A1(M), with junctions outside Durham to the south and Chester-le-Street to the north, both just a short drive away. The location means that Rainton Gardens is an ideal place to call home if you need to commute. It's just off the beaten track but very easy to get out and about, a perfect combination. You can be in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in just over half an hour, or on the coast at Sunderland in about 20 minutes.
