Dere Street Homes are opening up the final luxury home conversion at their prestigious Longhirst Hall development in a special Open Weekend May 18th and 19th with refreshments available for visitors.

The Orangery offers a three level, five bedroom period home of staggering proportions and includes a large gym, media room and home office located in the property’s lower ground floor.  The impressive ground floor features beautifully restored oak parquet floors throughout.  The bespoke 31’ by 30’ open plan kitchen with stunning central island unit leads to the living/dining area allowing you to be together whether cooking or relaxing. The Orangery room itself is perfectly placed overlooking the garden and offers an exceptional space for entertaining. Two large double bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities complete the ground floor. On the first floor, the magnificent master bedroom, spacious by any standards at some 31’ by 18’, features an ornate barrel-vaulted ceiling complete with the stunning original cornice, full en-suite facilities and a separate dressing area and is located on the first floor together with two additional double bedrooms.

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle. Located off the B1337 road, just a few minutes away from the beautiful Northumberland coastline and the new Morpeth Bypass, Longhirst is close enough to links to the new road to allow easy commuting to Tyneside and beyond, whilst being far enough away to retain its truly rural setting.

The original Hall dates back to 1828 when the Lawson family commissioned John Dobson to build their country residence – the same architect who designed Newcastle’s famous Grey Street and some of the region’s most elegant buildings – and has been described as his finest classical design.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, commented, “This home really has to be seen to be appreciated and is the final conversion of the original Hall which has now been restored and converted into five very large luxurious properties. The Orangery has some truly unique period features as well as the gym and media room, not mentioning the truly enormous living space it offers. There’s been a lot of interest so the Open Weekend allows visitors to view this superb home without an appointment.”

The Orangery is released for sale at £825,000.

With all the two storey townhouses now sold, the only other properties at Longhirst are the apartments ranging from one bedroom to three bedroom designs from £149,500 to £289,500.

Full details are available from Joan O’Connor, Development Sales Manager, Thursday to Monday 10.00am to 5.00pm on 01670 791825 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk.  Development Post Code NE61 3NA.
