A preview of Dere Street Homes’ exclusive Hill Top Farm development exceeded all expectations for the Durham-based developer with one home already reserved and several serious enquiries for the remaining 12.

Dere Street Homes’ Sales Director, Marie McQuaid, commented, “We held an informal preview to launch the brochure to those potential buyers who had registered to be kept informed at Bradley Hall’s Durham offices and were astonished at the level of interest this created.”

“The new brochure features superb CGI’s of each home alongside the floor plans in a very clear and easily understandable layout and the reaction to it was incredible with potential buyers clearly able to see the quality and unique design of the homes just from the brochure. Groundworks are proceeding well on site and we hope to be able to open our on-site Sales Centre at Easter.”

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 designed by award-winning architects, Barnett North LLP, located on the site of a former farm with superb views over Ramside Hall’s newly opened Cathedral Golf Course. All the homes come complete with one year’s free membership to both the Golf Club and Ramside Hall Hotel’s new Spa and Leisure Club, due to open in May.

The designs of the homes themselves blend contemporary design with traditional materials producing remarkable living spaces perfectly suited for modern living yet in tune with the traditions of rural architecture. Two of the smaller designs are the two bedroom semi-detached Hayloft and Cottage homes which feature an integral single garage, spacious open plan kitchen and dining area, and a superb double height garden room at the rear of the home with ceiling to floor fenestration which allows natural light to flow through both stories.

The staircase leads to a galleried landing which could also serve as a home office, overlooking the garden room with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and golf courses. The master bedroom includes a separate dressing room and comes complete with luxurious en-suite facilities which includes a large shower and freestanding bath. Bedroom two also includes en-suite facilities and a dressing area with a superb terrace overlooking the rear garden.

Prices for the first phase of homes will be released on Monday 16th February with full details from Jan Gill, Development Sales Manager 07983 080952 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk
