Luxury Townhouses on Offer at Longhirst

Heptinstall 251A9947

The year has started well for Dere Street Homes with the sale of two of the five conversions of the original Hall at their Longhirst Hall development, and increasing interest in the three bedroom townhouses.

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the development offers residents the perfect location to enjoy the rural lifestyle. Located off the B1337 road, just a few minutes away from the beautiful Northumberland coastline and the main roundabout linking the new Bypass to Morpeth and beyond, 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 two storey townhouses have been converted to offer extremely spacious and luxurious three bedroom homes which have to be seen to appreciate the true scale of the properties. An open plan family living area features superb floor-to ceiling Bi-fold doors opening fully onto the individual rear gardens which allow the indoor and outdoor areas to be truly combined. A separate family room, utility room and WC complete the ground floor with stairs leading to the first floor landing. The spacious master bedroom comes with full en-suite facilities and superb views over the rear gardens, whilst the front-facing bedrooms two and three share the large family bathroom.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, commented, “We’ve had a great deal of interest in all the homes at Longhirst with the townhouses proving particularly popular. The quality of the kitchen fittings, with Bosch and Zanussi appliances coming as standard, together with the generous proportions of the bedrooms – the master bedroom is 7.5m x 5.8m. These stunning properties and the stunning location amidst the parkland and mature woods of the Hall are certainly providing our visitors with the Wow factor!”

Longhirst also offers five, five bedroom new built detached homes and a unique two bedroom detached home which has been completely refurbished from the Hall’s original Coach House.  In addition, the first of the luxurious conversions of the main Hall, which offer four homes of incredible proportions, and the two and three bedroom apartments will launch in Spring 2018.


Prices for the remaining three bedroom townhouses 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
