Doxford House, Warden Law Lane, Silksworth - Sunderland

Large house (previously known as Silksworth House), formerly used as a students' hall of residence. Mostly of the early-C19 but with some earlier features. The property is vacant but has recently been acquired by a new owner who has made the building weathertight and secure. Work has started to implement the approved planning consent scheme which will see the building returned to a single residence.
