There’s a Spring bargain to be had at Dere Street Homes’ Marley Fields development in Wheatley Hill where there’s a £10,000 reduction in the price of a four bedroom detached Ellerby home.

Kelly Dodd, Development Sales Manager commented, “We’ve sold 39 homes with 16 now completed so there’s already a real community here.  Here in County Durham there’s huge demand for new homes and the response to our development has been phenomenal, especially since we opened the showhome last May.”

“The fact that almost 80% of our purchasers come from within a 5 mile radius, shows the level of local demand here in Wheatley Hill and the surrounding area.  The provision of housing is vital for the regeneration of the village and we’re very proud to be playing our part.”

“The three and four bedroom detached homes are attracting lots of interest with the Ellerby and Westerdale designs being particularly popular. All the homes are attractively priced, thoughtfully designed and equally stylish.  The availability of Help To Buy is also proving a great incentive for our buyers while this month we’ve also reduced Plot 92, an Ellerby design, the same as the showhome, to £229,950 for a limited period.  Plot 92 is pleasantly situated in the centre of the development with an open aspect to the front as well as a large enclosed rear garden”

The Ellerby is a fabulous four bedroom detached home with an integral single garage offering a spacious and well designed interior. The generous entrance hall leads either into a large open plan kitchen/dining area with access to a light and airy rear-facing garden room or into the separate living room to the front of the house. A downstairs cloakroom is also located off the hall.

All four bedrooms and the family bathroom are located off a spacious first floor landing with the luxury master bedroom including fitted wardrobes and en-suite facilities.

Located to the east of Durham City, the development will eventually contain 106 new homes of eight different designs on a brownfield site conveniently located for travel, just off the A181 linking the A1(M) to the A19 at Castle Eden. With two, three and four bedroom designs of homes, the aim is for a mixed development with prices to suit a variety of buyers from those taking their first steps on the housing ladder to growing families who wish to stay in the area but are looking for a bigger home.

The Government’s Help To Buy scheme offers buyers of new homes an equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of a new built home. The loan is interest free for the first five years with interest only charged in the sixth year and thereafter and, in essence, means a buyer of a new built home only needs to find 5% of the cost of the home as a deposit, with the 20% Help to Buy loan making up the remainder of the deposit and a 75% mortgage making up the remainder of the total cost of the home.

Prices for those homes released for sale at Marley Fields start from £149,950. Full details are available from Kelly Dodd, Development Sales Manager, Thursday to Monday 10.00am to 5.00pm on 07944 568720 or www.derestreethomes.co.uk
