With several finished and fully dressed apartments ready to move into, purchasers at Dere Street Homes’ prestigious Longhirst Hall development can be in their new homes in time for Christmas!

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.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor commented, “Longhirst is a very special place to spend Christmas, set within the estate’s superb landscaped gardens, surrounding woods and open countryside providing a secluded location with it’s very own community.”

“Construction work here is scaling down as we complete the final apartments after a very hectic Autumn which has seen fantastic interest and a number of reservations and completed sales. There has also been lots of movement in the second hand market allowing customers with a house to sell to finally reserve the home they have had their hearts set on.”

“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.”

“With the master bedrooms enjoying en-suite facilities, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, the specification will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers particularly those wishing to have the ease of an apartment but still have the flexibility for guests.”

“We have also opened a further luxuriously appointed two bedroom show apartment, providing an inviting option for those wishing to downsize or buy their first home. The apartments, ranging from one bedroom to three bedroom designs, are released for sale from only £140,000”

“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.”
