Stunning holiday house in Stanhope sold by Christie & Co

Specialist property adviser, Christie & Co, is delighted to announce the sale of the five star self-catering holiday house, Fairfield House in Stanhope, County Durham.


Fairfield House sleeps up to 24 guests and boasts over one and a half acres of exquisite landscaped garden. It also comes with a well-equipped games room, eight-seater hot tub, covered outdoor dining for 16, outdoor decking with BBQ and fire pit, and a tennis court with five a side football nets and netball posts.

This well-established and beautifully presented house also holds a ‘Visit England Five Star Gold Standard’ award.

Fairfield House is nestled on the edge of the small but picturesque market village of Stanhope, County Durham. Stanhope lies on the banks of the River Wear and is situated very close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house is circa 20 miles from Durham city and circa 30 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne.

The business was previously owned by Simon Heptinstall and Paula Carlington who have decided to sell in order to downsize their property interests and to travel more.

Commenting on the sale, Ms Carlington said, “As both a business owner and being a retired Chartered Surveyor, it was with some trepidation I retained Christie & Co to sell the business. I need not have felt any concern. From the very start, working with David Cash on most matters was excellent. He showed a great level of understanding, was extremely supportive when we hit a few bumps in the road and I do not believe the sale would have completed had it not been for his sheer tenacity. He is highly professional and genuinely caring. Whilst the sale is now done, I will genuinely miss working alongside him. If I embark on any other projects in the future, I will not hesitate for a moment to enlist Christie & Co again and would hope it was also David Cash… a true gent. “

The site has been purchased by Mr Daniel Bahmanizad. He comments, “It was great working with David and the rest of the Christie & Co team. This acquisition is a completely new line of business for us and Christie & Co provided the help and support we needed throughout the purchase. We are all excited at the challenge ahead and have Christies & Co to thank. We hope to work with them again in the future.”

David Lee, Regional Director at Christie & Co, comments on the sale, “I was very pleased to help Paula and Simon conclude the sale of Fairfield House, this fantastic property in a beautiful part of the North East will I am sure continue to be successful under the new ownership.”

Fairfield House was sold off an asking price of £975,000.
