Dating back to at least the early 1700's, Springwell Cottage was originally a stone built property. A brick front was put in place sometime after 1750 in keeping with the fashion of the day and this has been re-instated by the current owners. Extensive renovation work revealed that for a short period of time the cottage was occupied by two families but for most of its history it has been in single occupation.

Springwell Cottage was originally a farm before becoming the home of the owner of the toll road out of Durham. The property has been completely updated and extended by the current owners to offer an attractive and substantial family home. There are five principal reception rooms on the ground floor with the benefit of a 25ft kitchen/living room, utility room and shower room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two sharing a 'Jack and Jill' shower room, and a family bathroom. Externally, situated within the city, the property still benefits from a private garden.

Fieldhouse Lane is conveniently situated within the well established North End area of Durham City which has for many years proved to be extremely popular in demand. It is within walking distance of the immediate City Centre with its comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities and amenities, as well as the bus and railway stations. North End is also situated within walking distance of County Hall, The Land Registry, The University Hospital, as well as the well respected Durham Johnston School and St Leonards Roman Catholic School. It is conveniently situated for commuting purposes lying close to the A(167) Highway which provides good road links to both North and South.
