About Ian Henderson

I am a North Eastern lad, my wife of 49 years is from Winchester. Having lived all over the world we have finally come to live in the Durham area. Spent the previous 15 years in Spain but grew tired of the sunshine and so glad we did. This area is heaven on earth, ask my dogs, Niki and Gemma, both born in Spain but speak fluent English and now in their element !!

We had a holiday rental property in Spain and so enjoyed meeting and spoiling our guests decided to continue here in the UK. Come and visit this fabulous area, whatever you enjoy doing you will find it here, except perhaps sunbathing !!

Ian Henderson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Ian Henderson chose County Durham

Apartment Bijou is very spacious and discrete. We have tried to make it as comfortable as it can be, especially the bedroom suite. The bed has been carefully chosen. A Sealy bed fits the bill very well, so comfortable you won't want to get up in the morning. There is also a dressing room suite comprising a large bathroom with double shower and a large bath.

The dressing room has lots of hanging and shoe space, a spacious dressing table, ironing board with iron, cheval mirror and hair dryer. very comfortable indeed. The kitchen is very well equipped with all a person could want for full time living. while the lounge is equally well equipped.

In the lounge is a TV, DVD player with a selection of movies, can also play CD's, there are a variety of games including chess, dominoes, cards, jig saw, drafs and other board games. We have a selection of books on the book shelf in the bedroom.

What makes this apartment unique

The property enjoys a superb central location for all things Durham.

Newcastle Metro Center and the city night life are just 25 minutes by car plus of course for football enthusiasts we are pretty much equi distant from Newcastle and Sunderland.
