Riverside living within walking distance of the historic centre of Durham

Durham Sands is our stunning new collection of homes in a riverside setting with the green space of The Sands on the doorstep and the city centre within walking distance. A new home here is in a quiet residential location with easy access to all that Durham has to offer. The main route out of the city via Gilesgate is close to the development, so living here is a convenient choice if you need to get out and about for work.

Durham is a lovely compact city with all the amenities you could want. Train services from the station take you into Newcastle-upon-Tyne in under 15 minutes and as it’s a mainline station, there’s an extensive list of destinations across the country.

The focal points for the city are the cathedral, castle and market square and you’ll enjoy all the independent shops, cafés and markets – there’s always a lively atmosphere in this friendly city.

Durham Sands Location Information

Local information

This is a city with something for everyone and all within each reach. The city centre has a mix of independent shops and new shopping malls. There are retail parks and supermarkets too, including a huge Tesco Extra just beyond Gilesgate. Sport, leisure and entertainment are all on hand, including the Freeman's Quay Leisure Centre, riverside playing fields, a Luxe Cinema and a theatre – not to mention the River Wear which offers plenty of walks and picnic areas as it winds through the city. The university is a bonus too, bringing a lively atmosphere to the city centre.

Lots to do out and about

Durham is a city with lots of green space. The Sands parkland is virtually on your doorstep and there are walks, woodland, playing fields and parks alongside the River Wear. Akyley Wood is a local nature reserve, Wharton Park has a café, play areas and miniature car track and Crook Hall is a Medieval hall with stunning gardens and activities to amuse children. The Durham Heritage Coast and the North Pennines are an easy drive away for a day out with the family.

Good choice of schooling

Durham has a choice of schooling for all ages, including the nearby St Oswald's C of E Primary and Nursery School and Durham Johnson Comprehensive. Both are within 3 miles of the development and are rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. There are several colleges offering further education, and of course the famous university is a key player in the city.
