Demand Still Strong For North East Housebuilder

Posted 19 July 2021 by Keith Osborne

Bellway has seen lots of buyer interest in two developments starting to take shape in County Durham...

Bellway is continuing to see success in the new homes market at developments in the North East of England.

The first homes have been released for sale at Northdene in North Shields, where a new sales office has opened on site. This scheme will deliver 75 homes at to the site off Billy Mill Lane, transforming a disused patch of brownfield land into a new residential neighbourhood. It will include 56 homes for private sale and 19 homes allocated as affordable housing for local people.

With a show home set to open in October, the housebuilder has already seen considerable interest on what is coming up for sale. Emma Chesterton, head of sales for Bellway North East, said: “Northdene is a positive development for the area and is giving a new lease of life to an unloved former reservoir site by transforming it into a collection of new homes.

“Work is progressing well at the development and we are looking forward to welcoming buyers to the new sales office at Northdene so they can see for themselves the high standard of construction that is going into the new homes here. We are seeing a lot of interest in these new homes and families are particularly drawn to the close proximity of well-regarded schools in the area – such as St Thomas More Catholic High School, which lies less than half-a-mile away.”

Northdene is located a few minutes’ drive from the A1058 Coast Road, five minutes from the A19 and 10 minutes by car from both Tynemouth and Whitley Bay.

There’s a range of three and four-bedroom houses currently available to reserve at the development, with prices starting from £249,995 for a three-bedroom home. The sales office at Northdene is open by appointment only. Find out more at bellway.co.uk.


Meanwhile, the housebuilder recently handed over the keys to the final plot at Queensgate, a 10-year project which has delivered 474 new homes off Yarm Road in Stockton.

While the final occupants have been moving into their new homes there, Bellway Durham is marking a new era in Stockton by commencing work at Old School Gardens, a development of 80 homes set to transform a former school site off Blakeston Lane. Following an early launch at the beginning of the year, due to high demand for housing in the area, the first homes at Old School Gardens have already been reserved by buyers.

Hayley Teasdale, sales manager of Bellway Durham, said: “Queensgate has been a flagship project for our division, and we are proud to see it reach a successful end, in time to begin more housebuilding within Stockton. There is still a great demand for new housing here and we are looking forward to continuing our legacy within the area, by delivering a further collection of high-quality new homes at Old School Gardens.”

Once construction work is complete at Old School Gardens, Bellway will have delivered a total of 554 homes within Stockton. There’s a selection of three-bedroom homes currently available at Old School Gardens, with prices starting from £179,995. A three-bedroom ‘Harper’ show home is set to launch at the development in August. Find out more at bellway.co.uk.
