Only three, three bedroom townhouses now remain for sale at Dere Street Homes’ prestigious Longhirst Hall development.

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle. Located off the B1337 road, just a few minutes away from the beautiful Northumberland coastline and the new Morpeth Bypass, Longhirst is close enough to links to the new road to allow easy commuting to Tyneside and beyond, whilst being far enough away to retain its truly rural setting.

The original Hall dates back to 1828 when the Lawson family commissioned John Dobson to build their country residence – the same architect who designed Newcastle’s famous Grey Street and some of the region’s most elegant buildings – and has been described as his finest classical design.

The two storey townhouses offer extremely spacious, luxurious three bedroom homes which have to be seen to appreciate the true scale of the properties. An open plan family living area features superb floor-to ceiling Bi-fold doors opening fully onto the individual rear gardens which allow the indoor and outdoor areas to be truly combined. A separate family room, utility room and cloaks complete the ground floor with stairs leading to the first floor landing. The spacious master bedroom comes with full en-suite facilities and superb views over the rear gardens, whilst the front-facing bedrooms two and three share the large family bathroom.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, commented, “We’ve had huge interest in both the townhouses and the newly launched apartments with visitors often torn between the two. These final three townhouses have superb quality kitchen fittings – granite worktops along with integrated Bosch and Zanussi appliances as standard. The bedrooms are generously proportioned, with the master bedroom being an impressive 7.5m x 5.8m.”

“The apartments offer a unique opportunity to enjoy life in this peaceful corner of a private development. Each apartment is unique and has been thoughtfully designed to maximise space and create light filled interiors with a variety of high quality fixtures and fittings including granite worktops and integrated appliances as standard. The range of one, two and three bedroom designs means that there is something to tempt a wide range of buyers, from professionals to those looking to downsize. “

Prices for the remaining three bedroom townhouses start from £375,000 with prices for those apartments currently released for sale range from £149,500 for a one bedroom design to £289,500 for a three bedroom apartment. Full details are available from Joan O’Connor, Development Sales Manager, Thursday to Monday 10.00am to 5.00pm on 01670 791825 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk.
