Final Home For Sale At Landmark Morpeth Development

Posted 17 August 2021 by Keith Osborne

The remaining property for sale at this restored manor house is a three-bedroom apartment set out over two floors...

Dere Street Homes is celebrating the success of its Longhirst Hall project in Morpeth as there is now just one home left for sale there.

Longhirst Hall itself was designed by architect John Dobson and built between 1824-8 for local landowner, William Lawson and the mansion and its grounds were later sold to a self-made coalmining magnate. Over its history, the building and estate have had roles as military accommodation, a conference centre and a hotel.

Now, the estate has been converted into a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom townhouses and three-, four- and five-bedroom houses in a combination of restoration and conversion of the original buildings and some sympathetically designed new build homes.

Longhirst HallThe apartments in Lawson Villas are all unique in layout and each has been thoughtfully designed to retain the character of the building while maximising space and creating light-filled interiors, which are both high on the list of priorities for today’s house-hunters. Offering the opportunity to enjoy life in a peaceful corner of a private development, they come with a variety of high-quality fixtures and fittings including granite worktops and integrated appliances as standard.

The last home for sale here is Plot 31, a duplex apartment. Downstairs in the open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with lots of worktop and storage space. There’s a spacious cupboard upstairs too, as well as the bathroom and three bedrooms. Bedroom one is a double with plenty of room for furniture, the other two bedrooms are singles but can be used for a multitude of purposes such as home office, gym, studio, hobby room or dressing room. This is on the market for £225,995.

Well-served Morpeth town centre and the A1 are only a five-minute drive away, the coast under 15 minutes away and it’s only half-an-hour into central Newcastle.
