A one-bedroom neighbour to The Wolsey, The Tunstall stairs lead to a cleverly designed upper floor space, ideal for a study or den.

Throughout the 19th century, when Queen Victoria was on the throne and Durham’s coalfields put the North East at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution, some of the county’s most prominent figures would meet here, at 52 Old Elvet. Here deals were made, royalty was entertained and, when dinner was over, cigars smoked, and port poured, they would retire to a purposely-built billiard room to the rear of the building. Designed by Charles Hodgson Fowler – also architect to the Dean and Chapter of Durham – this vast, vaulted room, whose glass panelled roof is supported by polished timbers in the Art Nouveau style, has now been beautifully converted into two, highly contemporary, split-level apartments. Both entered from the rear of the building, they are noticeably more modern.
