With two confirmed sales, Dere Street Homes are confident that their exclusive Hill Top Farm development at Ramside Hall near Durham City will prove to be their most successful projects yet.

The showhome opening on October 10th attracted over 50 visitor groups eager to see the five bedroom detached Farmhouse design which occupies a prime corner location on the 13 home development. The visitors were not disappointed by the eagerly awaited opening, enjoying the rich tapestry of modern architecture and superb interior design that the Durham-based developer displayed.

Sales and Marketing Manager, Marie McQuaid, commented, “It was a fantastically successful weekend for us with such great feedback from our visitors that the whole team has been boosted. In truth, there was so many people wanting to look around the showhome and development, that we’ve made private appointments for many so that they have the time to consider their choices more closely.”

“An incredible amount of hard work went into the design, construction and interior design of this home but the end result is truly stunning. We will be releasing the next phase of our development for sale imminently and confidently expect to announce further sales very soon.”

The interior design makes the most of the light filled spaces with contemporary furniture and fittings perfectly matching the modern feel of the home, exemplified by the central ‘floating’ staircase that has attracted such attention from visitors. The superb open plan ground floor living space is complemented by the cosy family sitting room with one the home’s two stoves whilst the double heights of the great room and the garden room fill the home with natural light.

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.

Marie continued, “These are unique, design-driven and very bespoke homes and we’re very proud to have created such a high quality development.”

Located adjacent to Ramside Hall Hotel just outside Durham City, Hill Top Farm will consist of just 13 farmstead style, detached and semi-detached luxury homes which come complete with one year’s complimentary membership to both the Golf Club and Ramside Hall Hotel’s new Spa and Leisure Club.

Prices for the first phase of homes released for sale start from £425,000 with full details from Jan Gill, on-site Development Sales Manager 07983 080952 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk
