Great Chilton Farm is located about a mile outside of Chilton in a quiet rural location, with views over the surrounding countryside.



From Durham take the A167 south towards Chilton. At the roundabout in Chilton turn left into Laurel Road and follow the road for about a mile. At the signpost for Great Chilton Farm Cottages turn right and the property will be the first building on your left.



The property consists of a 0.38 acre plot with an original barn with a footprint of 226m². Full planning consent is in place for conversion to a modern 1.5 storey, four bedroom home. The consent is for a finished home of 270m². The plot is large enough for a spacious garden and patio/parking area. There is also a well fenced 1.6 acre grass paddock with a small wooded area, adjacent to the property.
