The Old School House

The Old School House

Offerton Coxgreen School and the adjoining headmasters house were built in 1878 to accommodate 150 children from the villages of Coxgreen and Offerton. Subsequently de-commissioned in 1968, the Old School House been used as a private dwelling and artist workshop.

  • An exciting development opportunity with a favourable reply from the City planning department to a pre-application enquiry for the conversion of the School into a seperate dwelling and the extension of the current School House.
  • The property has the benefit of a Biomass plant which currently produces an income of £300pcm paid quarterly. 

The property is set within open countryside at the foot of Penshaw Monument Hill and being within 500m of the banks of the River Wear and the Riverside Golf Club. The tranquil setting offers stunning views over open countryside and there are pleasant riverside and country walks together with mountain bike trails directly on the doorstep. 

In our opinion it provides one of the most exciting development opportunities to come to the City's property market in recent times.
