Following a flurry of reservations for apartments at Dere Street Homes’ prestigious Longhirst Hall development, only one two bedroom apartment remains with south facing views over the superb landscaped parkland of the original estate, but, it comes ready to move in for Christmas and is available for just £194,950.

Plot 34 is a superb first floor two bedroom apartment with both the master bedroom and open plan living room enjoying south facing views over the landscaped parks of the estate. With a generously proportioned open plan living room over 35’ in length and a family bathroom complete with separate shower cubicle, the apartment is fully floored with a mix of carpets and engineered oak flooring whilst the kitchen comes complete with granite work tops and integrated appliances.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor commented, “It’s a superb apartment and actually bigger in floor area than many three bedroom homes for sale elsewhere in Morpeth, but it’s the views over the parkland that really catch visitors’ attention, particularly at this time of year when the Autumn colours are producing such stunning outlooks onto the open fields and woodlands that surround the estate.”

“Each apartment in this idyllic location is unique and has been thoughtfully designed to maximise space and create light filled interiors with particularly well appointed fixtures and fittings including granite worktops and integrated appliances as standard. The apartments offer everyone a unique opportunity to enjoy life in this peaceful corner of a beautiful, private development.”

“We have some excellent deals available at the moment for Christmas completions which has given purchasers a great incentive to buy now. The three new show apartments are also attracting ever increasing numbers of visitors. Two of these apartments are really impressive, three bedroom duplex designs, featuring very generously sized open plan living spaces. The  ground floor show apartment also benefits from access to the mature gardens outside in addition to an internal front entrance.”

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle while being just a few minutes’ drive from the beautiful market town of Morpeth and the Northumberland coastline, a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Located off the B1337 road, and offering easy access to 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.
