First Time Buyers Love Wheatley Hill


Dere Street Homes’ Marley Fields development, at Wheatley Hill to the east of Durham City is proving particular popular with first time buyers. With prices starting at £155,000, the development offers a range of semi-detached and detached homes that are both stylish and affordable for all budgets.

Marley Fields will eventually contain some 106 new homes of thirteen different designs on a brownfield site just off the A181 linking the A1(M) to the A19 at Castle Eden. With two, three and four bedroom designs of homes, the aim is for a mixed development with prices to suit a variety of budgets from those taking their first steps on the housing ladder to growing families who wish to stay in the area but are looking for a bigger home.

Development Sales Manager, Brian Smith, commented, “We now have three sales and a further four reservations mainly from mainly local people but also from potential buyers from Durham City and the surrounding villages. The location here allows easy access to both the A1(M) and A19 and is an ideal base for commuting across the whole region. With our Sales Centre now open we’re seeing really good visitor numbers which will most probably increase even further when we the showhome opens towards the end of April.”

The Ellerby showhome is a fabulous four bedroom detached design with a double garage offering a spacious and well designed interior. The entrance hall leads either into a large open plan kitchen/dining area with access to a light and airy rear-facing garden room or into the separate living room to the front of the house. A downstairs cloakroom is also located off the hall.

All four bedrooms and the family bathroom are located off a central first floor landing with the spacious master bedroom including fitted wardrobes and en-suite facilities.

Prices for those homes released for sale at Marley Fields start from £155,000. Full details are available from Brian Smith, Development Sales Manager, Thursday to Monday 10.00am to 5.00pm on 07944 568720 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk
