Early Sales at Wheatley Hill


County Durham-based developers, Dere Street Homes, have sold the first two homes at their latest development, Marley Fields, at Wheatley Hill, located to the east of Durham City.

The company are building some 107 new homes of eight different designs on a brownfield site just off the A181 linking the A1(M) to the A19 at Castle Eden. The development offers two, three and four bedroom designs of homes to promote 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 stylish collection ranges from the two bedroom Malden design, a perfect semi-detached starter home for couples or young families to the four bedroom, three storey detached Bedale family home.

The Malden is a two bedroom home offering a spacious and well designed interior. The entrance hall leads into a large open plan living space with a practical storage cupboard located under the stairs. The living area leads into the fully fitted kitchen where the back door opens onto the rear garden. A downstairs cloakroom is also accessed from the kitchen..

Both bedrooms are located on the first floor. The light and airy master bedroom includes fitted wardrobes, with a second, rear-facing bedroom as well as the family bathroom accessed from the landing.

The Bedale is a fabulous four bedroom family home offering superbly designed accommodation on three levels and designed for the larger family. The stylish fully fitted kitchen/dining room, utility room, understair store and cloaks leads off from the entrance hall with a spacious rear lounge area featuring contemporary French doors leading into the rear garden.

The master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite facilities, is on the second floor in addition to bedroom four and the family bathroom. The second floor has two further spacious bedrooms ideal for teenagers needing their own space.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Brian Smith, commented, “There’s been high levels of interest in Marley Fields ever since we put our first signage up from mainly local people but also from potential buyers from Durham City and the surrounding villages. The location allows easy access to both the A1(M) and A19 and is an ideal base for commuting across the whole region. We now have our Sales Centre open and were naturally delighted to take these first two reservations on the first phase of homes released for sale.”
