Longhirst Hall, Dere Street Homes, Showhome Open

County Durham-based developers, Dere Street Homes, are reporting the first two sales of three bedroom townhouses at their prestigious Longhirst Hall development, located just to the north of Morpeth and minutes away from the new link to A1(M).

Dere Street Homes’ development Sales Manager, Yvonne Wilson, commented, “We had wonderful weather on our opening weekend and all our visitors were bowled over by the quality of the townhouse showhome and the location. Since that first weekend we have had many return visits with the first two sales coming last weekend from buyers who were making return visits.”

“The showhome is stunning with a tiled ground floor and an open plan layout leading right through to the Bi-Fold doors onto the rear garden which enables buyers to really bring the outside country into their own home. The quality of the kitchen fittings, with Bosch and Zanussi appliances coming as standard, together with the generous proportions of the bedrooms, the master bedroom is 7.5m x 5.8m and the stunning location amidst the parkland and mature woods of the Hall are giving our visitors the Wow factor and we’re very confident of further sales for the remaining homes.”

Whilst the original hall was designed built by John Dobson as a grand country house for the Lawson family in 1828, the new homes are luxurious three bedroom townhouses converted from the hotel’s Conference Centre, a later addition to the Hall.

Passing through the hands of some of the area’s richest families, the Grade II listed Hall was eventually converted into a 77 bedroomed hotel, hugely popular as a wedding venue with a 250 person function room in addition to 23 conference rooms.

The three bedroom townhouse showhome features an expansive open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with superb floor-to ceiling Bi-fold doors which open fully onto the individual rear gardens, allowing the indoor and outdoor areas to be truly combined. A separate family room, fully plumbed utility room and WC 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.

The nine two storey townhouses are all of a similar design with prices for the first phase of three bedroom townhouses starting £460,000.
