Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, Dere Street Homes’ Longhirst Hall development is enjoying a boost in visitors who are enjoying the beautiful location in addition to viewing the range of one, two and three bedroom apartments remaining for sale.

Having just sold The Orangery, the final luxury home conversion at the prestigious development, only apartments remain for sale but offer a range of unique designs for buyers as Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, explained, “Each apartment is unique and has been thoughtfully designed to maximise space and create light filled interiors with a variety of high quality fixtures and fittings including granite worktops and integrated appliances as standard. The range of designs means that there is something to tempt a wide range of buyers, from professionals to those looking to downsize.  The apartments offer everyone a unique opportunity to enjoy life in this peaceful corner of a private development.”

“The location here is absolutely stunning and now the rhododendrons are in flower, we have an entrance drive that rivals anything that Cragside at Rothbury can offer! The wildlife is also superb with deer and their fawns, hedgehogs and an amazing range of wild birds – it’s so peaceful yet within easy commuting to Morpeth, Newcastle and beyond.”

“The Show Apartment has also recently been sold so we hope to have the new Show Apartment open next week. It’s three bedroom, duplex design with a superb open plan living area on the ground floor with en-suite facilities to the master bedroom, two further bedrooms  and an additional family bathroom to the first floor.”

The development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle and is 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.

The apartments, ranging from one bedroom to three bedroom designs, are released for sale from £149,500 to £289,500.
