Dere Street Homes have opened a new Show apartment at their prestigious Longhirst Hall development. The three bedroom, duplex design features a superb open plan living area on the ground floor with en-suite facilities to the master bedroom, two further double bedrooms and an additional family bathroom to the first floor.

Dere Street Homes’ Development Sales Manager, Joan O’Connor, “We had a great deal of interest in the original two bedroom show apartment which was snapped up as soon as we released it. The new apartment is a bigger three bedroom duplex design built over the first two floors of the three storey apartment complex and features a very generously sized open plan living space with access to the gardens outside in addition to an internal front entrance.”

“With the master bedroom enjoying en-suite facilities, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom, the specification will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers ranging from young families to couples wishing to down size but still have the flexibility for guests.”

“Each apartment here 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.”

Surrounded by mature woodlands and the landscaped lawns of the original Hall, the Longhirst Hall 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.

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.  Development Post Code NE61 3LP.
