Property description

TO BE SOLD VIA Online Auction until 29/03/2022 12:00. Fees apply


This former 4-bedroom end-terrace on Seymour Street is currently in the process of being thoughtfully converted into 2 separate dwellings:- A pair of flats consisting of 2 bedrooms with en suites to the ground floor and 3 bedrooms and separate bathroom to the upper floor. The property also has the potential to be a 5/6 bedroom HMO.

So far, the property has benefited from: A new roof with Velux skylights, internal fire safety doors, double glazing (some doubling as fire escapes), kitchen unit, central heating system with designer vertical radiators, full re-wire and accommodation for the en suites to the ground floor rooms. The upper floor is currently being re-configured to create extra rooms with a loft space large enough to potentially be a living area (with planning consent). Planning permission has also been granted for the construction of a conservatory/sun room to the rear yard.

Due to the proximity to the Bishop Auckland Hospital and train station, the property is an ideal investment opportunity of numerous aspects.

Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
