Houghton Hall, the former mansion house of the Hutton Family, stands tall as one of the most imposing and impressive buildings in Houghton-le-Spring. Located on the aptly named Hall Lane in the east side of the town centre, the residence is within walking distance of local shops, schools, and the business district. The property is steeped in history and is thought to have been built in the late 16th century, around 1589. Houghton Hall once belonged to Rev Robert Hutton, the Rector of Houghton-le-Spring and is now a grade 2 listed building.

This magnificent residence extends to nearly 12,000 sq ft of gross internal accommodation over 3 floors. Upon entering, you are greeted with a grand hallway and a self-supporting cantilever staircase, one of only three in the UK. On the ground floor, there is a large open plan kitchen/dining/family room, three reception rooms, a shower room, bathroom, and washroom with W/C’s. Additionally, there is a craft room, two offices, and a secondary staircase leading to the rear. At first floor level, there are four bedrooms, a washroom with cloakroom and shower, a bathroom, and a large games room and secondary living room. The second floor provides a further three bedrooms together with three spacious storerooms and the secondary staircase. Externally, the property benefits from a vast entrance driveway that is block paved and could accommodate up to 20 vehicles. There is a central tree in the middle, surrounded by lawns and bounded by a wall with iron railings. There is a separate entrance off Nesham Place that leads into a secure yard which, in turn, leads to the garage/former gym.
