Luxury Living At Landmark £2.25m Symeon Manor

Issue 100

Durham City's most luxurious new home is coming onto the market as the creation of the North East's most exclusive residential development continues.

Symeon Manor is a unique detached sixbedroom, six-bathroom property that sits independently within the landscaped grounds and woodlands at the centre of the historic Mount Oswald estate, just to the south of Durham City.

The £2.25m landmark property comes with a substantial private landscaped garden, a spacious three car garage, an open plan kitchen and dining area, a study and a home cinema space.

The substantial living room features French doors on two sides, allowing light to flood into the room, while there is also a utility room and cloakroom off the generous entrance hallway.

Five of the six bedrooms offer contemporary en suite bathrooms, while the master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and a large south-facing terrace.

Symeon Manor features underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, as well as a beautifully designed kitchen which includes Silestone worktops, high quality appliances and oak finished doors. The kitchen will be finished to the buyer’s specifications.

The property also includes a range of environmental design features including an energy efficient air source heat pump, solar panels, LED bathroom lighting and an electric vehicle charging point.

Symeon Manor is currently being built by Banks Homes and is part of the firm’s wider Symeon Court development at the Mount Oswald estate, which also includes four four-bedroom and four five-bedroom homes that are located nearby.

Durham City property firm Urban BASE is acting as sales agent for Symeon Manor and Symeon Court, where the first of the new properties are expected to be ready for occupation later this year.

The Mount Oswald estate was built at the turn of the 19th century and features a Grade Two-listed Manor House that is set to reopen later this year after a substantial refurbishment as The Story, County Durham’s exciting new local history centre and cultural venue.

Aisling Ramshaw, head of sales and marketing at Banks Homes, says: “Symeon Manor is a one-of-a-kind property in a magnificent location and represents the absolute pinnacle of luxury living.

“It has been designed to provide an exquisite combination of style, design, and functionality, and includes all the features you need to live, work and play in complete comfort.

“Mount Oswald is a dream location for families, commuters and countryside lovers alike, and as well as offering excellent transport links, it sits just a short walk away from one of the UK’s most beautiful and best-loved cities.”
