Dere Street Homes have welcomed the first resident into their latest new homes development at Stanton Court, North Shields.

Mary Smith only moved a few miles from her former property in North Shields mainly to be closer to her daughter and family, as she explained, “My daughter, Fiona, had let me know about Stanton Court as soon as the developers had received Planning Permission and I’d actually bought it off plan. Now I’ve moved in, it’s just a beautiful home with a bigger kitchen and bathroom than I’d expected, but still very easy to maintain.”

Offering just 14 two bedroom courtyard and semi-detached bungalows, Stanton Court has been specifically designed for couples who may well live locally and wish to downsize now that their children have grown up and moved out of the family home, or be moving into this popular and well established neighbourhood.

Louise Kenny, Dere Street Homes’ IT and Sales Office Manager, presented Mary with a welcome bouquet of flowers, adding, “We’re delighted to have Mary as our first resident on the development and, with four homes already sold and another reserved, she’ll soon be joined by her new neighbours.”

Ideally placed for local amenities with superb leisure and retail facilities right on the doorstep, Stanton Court offers a safe haven in this quiet neighbourhood with easy access to both local facilities and the A1058 Coast Road to Newcastle upon Tyne or the Beach Road down to the magnificent Tynemouth and Whitley Bay beaches.

But, just as importantly, what the development offers in essence is peace and security. Set within a quiet and well established neighbourhood largely consisting of similar bungalows, this area of the popular Preston Grange suburb is mainly occupied by older families who enjoy the peace and quiet of an established and secure neighbourhood.

The homes are also being built to the very latest standards which incorporate extremely high levels of energy efficiency, thereby saving home owners money in the long run on their fuel costs. Prices for the first phase of homes to be released for sale start from £172,500 full details available from the Dere Street Homes on-site Sales Centre (open Thursday to Monday 10.00am – 5.00pm) or from Head Office on (0191) 373 6535.
