To all those moving to Durham for the coming school year: A friend of mine has told me about a house that is open to rent. Let me know if you are interested, and I’ll pass along your details. It’s probably too far to walk into campus, but from my knowledge of the area it’s got a decent number of buses. Also, it’s in the neck of the woods of Keenan House and the University Hospital.
The property is located in Pity Me on Front Street, a short walk from the Arnison Centre (where there is local Sainsburys supermarket amongst other shops). It is approximately 3 miles into Durham City and on all major bus routes into Durham, Darlington and Newcastle.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 double and one smaller study or childs bedroom, a large recently refurbished kitchen with dinning area, large lounge and a decent sized bathroom. The rent is £495/month, and the tenant would be expected to pay the council tax and utility bills.
