A superb detached home has become available at Dere Street Homes’ prestigious Hill Top Farm development, located adjacent to Ramside Hall Hotel just outside Durham City so that just two homes now remain for sale.

Dere Street Homes’ Sales and Marketing Manager, Yvonne Wilson, explained, “It’s obviously desperately unfortunate for the intended buyers who had reserved the property but are now unable to proceed with purchase, but good news for other buyers, as this particular property, Mill House, occupies one of the prime locations on the development with superb views to the west and south over the adjacent golf course so we expect that it will be quickly reserved again.”

Dower House, re-released for sale at £875,000, is a five bedroom detached executive home featuring large floor to ceiling windows which allow natural light to flow through both stories of the home, separate family and living rooms and a private driveway leading to an external detached double garage. The design also features an imposing double height hallway which leads to the grand open plan living room.


The luxurious kitchen and dining area is at the rear of the property with elegant French doors leading onto the garden adding to its light and airy feel with the separate utility area also having external access. The spacious family room flows from the kitchen and dining area allowing plenty of space for a busy household to cook, eat and relax, also benefiting from two sets of delightful French doors leading out into the garden. A separate home office provides a quiet study area.

Stairs lead up to a galleried landing and onto the five bedrooms and family bathroom. The rear facing master bedroom has full en-suite bathroom facilities and a separate dressing area, with bedrooms two and three enjoying en-suite facilities while bedrooms four and five share the family bathroom.

Also available at Hill Top farm is Mill House on Plot 9, a stunning three storey, five bedroom detached home which features an integral double garage, first floor living room and en-suite facilities to three of the five bedrooms. Mill House is available at £910,000.

Dere Street Homes’ Sales Director, Marie McQuaid, commented, “There’s been incredible interest in the 13 properties at Hill Top Farm and it has been one of our most successful developments. Buyers have appreciated the location and design of the homes whilst the high standard of specification has also been a powerful factor.”

Energy saving has also been a priority at the development with heat recovery systems taking the heat from bathroom and kitchen vented air to heat fresh air entering the homes. Under-floor heating to ground and first floors together with open fireplaces and tripled glazed windows create the best of both worlds – low energy utilisation with abundant light in the homes. The luxury homes also come complete with one year’s complimentary membership to both the Golf Club and Ramside Hall Hotel’s new Spa and Leisure Club.

Full details are available from the on-site Development Sales Manager, Thursday to Monday 10.00am to 5.00pm on 07983 080952 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk
