Less than two months after first launching, three of the 14 bungalows being built by County Durham-based developers, Dere Street Homes, at Stanton Court in North Shields have been sold.

The development consists just 14 two bedroom courtyard and semi-detached bungalows on the site of a former care home within the Marden Estate. It has been specifically designed for mature residents 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.

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 popular suburb is mainly occupied by older families who enjoy the peace and quiet of an established and secure neighbourhood.

Marie McQuaid, Director of Dere Street Homes, commented, “The reaction to the development has been very positive ever since we opened our Sales cabin in early February although we’ve had enquiries from the very first day we’ve been on site. The first three homes have all been bought by local people and we have many more awaiting the opening of the showhome in April so do feel confident that the reaming homes will also soon be reserved.”

Typical of the four designs is the Dunes bungalow offering a modern and easily maintained two bedroom home. From the front door, a central hall leads past the bedrooms into the spacious, rear facing kitchen and living room with French doors to the garden and a compact utility room off the kitchen. The family bathroom can also be accessed as en-suite facilities to the spacious master bedroom which enjoys the additional space provided by a large bay window.

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 on 07983 080952 (open Thursday to Monday 10.00am – 5.00pm) or from Head Office on (0191) 373 6535.
