The Durham Heritage Coast is perhaps one of the area’s biggest draws. If being close to the sea is something you’ve always dreamed of, looking for houses for sale in County Durham could be a great move for you. The wider region is home to industrialists, poets, and many media personalities, whilst the city itself houses two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle (now Durham University).
The city of Durham has a population count of over 65,000, and the present city can be traced back as far as 995 AD, with a rich history in carpet making and weaving. At the time of the Industrial Revolution, the city was also at the heart of the coalfields, which became the area’s main trade during the 19th Century.
Today, the whole of Durham’s city centre is a conservation area and, together with the famous Cathedral and Castle, there are also more than 630 listed buildings which add to its unique history and charm. The cobbled streets and amazing greenery certainly make it an incredibly picturesque location – one that’s a wonderful place to live and work without the high living costs experience in other major cities. In Durham, average property prices are considered to be very low, meaning that first time buyers will find it easier to get on the property ladder.
