Welcome to 52

Welcome to 52 Old Elvet – a unique development of exquisite apartments at the heart of the city of Durham.

This elegant Grade II-listed Georgian mansion – which has welcomed a host of illustrious visitors, including HM The Queen – has undergone a spectacular £1.5m conversion. And the result is 12 stunning apartments, which beautifully combine the elegance of a bygone era with 21st century innovation. With original features and developed to the highest possible standard, 52 Old Elvet offers luxurious living in one of the most fascinating and beautiful cities in Britain.

Built around 250 years ago in the mid-1700s, 52 Old Elvet is, quite simply, a Georgian gem. Originally a family home, this three-storey, Grade II-listed townhouse shot to prominence in 1890 when it was bought by the Durham County Club from an Anthony Wilkinson Esq. for the sum of £4000. This exclusive gentlemen’s club was formed by 18 leading businessmen, MPs and aristocrats, including the Earl of Durham and the Marquis of Londonderry. And, over the following 126 years, 52 Old Elvet welcomed many more illustrious visitors, including royalty and as legend has it, HM the Queen who attended an event here as a guest of the club.
