Living History at Longhirst


Dere Street Homes’ Longhirst Hall development offers five unique restorations of the original Georgian buildings which range from the magnificent seven bedroom Longhirst property, now sold, to the unique two bedroom detached Coach House now open as a view home.

The Coach House is a superb conversion of the Longhirst Estate’s original Grade II listed Coach House which has been totally refurbished internally to provide 1,600 sq ft of superb contemporary living space with a spacious open plan kitchen and dining space, featuring a fully fitted kitchen and a light-filled dining area. A separate spacious living room leads onto the external patio and garden via French doors.

To the first floor the spacious master bedroom enjoys en-suite facilities, including twin basins, whilst the second bedroom has access to the family bathroom adjacent. Externally, the Coach House enjoys a private garden whilst the original exterior fixtures have been carefully restored.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, commented, ”The Coach House really is an absolutely unique property which offers residents a slice of Northumbrian history but superbly converted for modern living and is proving very popular to visitors now the restoration is complete.”

Both the Coach House and 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 John Dobson’s finest classical design.

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle. Offering two and three bedroom apartments, three bedroom townhouses and detached homes ranging two to seven bedrooms, Longhirst Hall has a property to suit everyone with the townhouses and five bedroom homes ready to move into.

Located off the B1337 road, just a few minutes away from Morpeth and the main roundabout linking the new Bypass to the A1M) and beyond, Longhirst is close enough to links to the new road to make commuting from here into Newcastle and beyond very easy, whilst being far enough away to retain its truly rural setting.

Prices for those homes currently released for sale start from £399,950. 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
