Situated in the west wing, The Egerton is a two bedroom apartment, and the only one within the main block which has its own private entrance from the side of the building.This discreet front door once acted as the service entrance, and now leads into what was originally the kitchen.

Now it is home to a bespoke living area and kitchen. This features one of only six ranges produced and manufacturers in Durham which are still in situ, and provides a focal point for the room which works in curious harmony with its contemporary island kitchen.

The fourth apartment in this beautifully restored building is one of two homes built into what was once a purpose-built billiard room. Back in the 19th Century, many of the country’s most prominent figures would meet at 52 Old Elvet to make deals and enjoy dinner before retiring to the billiard room – a vast, vaulted room with a glass panelled roof supported by polished timbers.

Part of this huge, stunning room is now The Wolsey, a beautiful two-bedroom home. Accessible from the rear of the building, it also houses a wrap-around staircase which leads to an upper floor area.

Like The Wolsey, the Tunstall has been created in the unique space formerly used as the billiard room. Designed by Charles Hodgson Fowler – who was also architect to the Dean and Chapter of Durham – this incredible room lends itself perfectly to this luxury one bedroom living space.

Due to the position at the back of the building, access to The Tunstall is from the rear of the building, giving a little more privacy. It boasts a calming, modern décor and like The Wolsey has a unique staircase which leads to a cleverly-designed upper floor space, ideal for use as a study area.

Wolsey:

Bedroom 1 - (132 sqft)
Bedroom 2 - (132 sqft)
Kitchen/Living Room - (283 sqft)

Tunstall:

Bedroom 1 - (132 sqft)
Kitchen/Living Room - (188 sqft)
