Home of the Day – Apartment at Longhirst Hall, Dere Street Homes

Posted 15 January 2021 by Keith Osborne

Our favourite new home for sale is an apartment at Longhirst Hall from Dere Street Homes' development in Morpeth…

The WhatHouse? team reports on our current favourite new build home for sale – it’s a two-bedroom apartment at a special conversion/new build development of Longhirst Hall, a period building just outside Morpeth, Northumberland, from regional housebuilder Dere Street Homes.

The apartment on Plot 21 is actually a duplex with private entrance in the Lawson Square part of the gated scheme, giving it the feel of a house, with living and sleeping areas separated by stairs. In all, it provides a generous 891 sq ft of space.

The apartment comes complete with a luxury kitchen with integrated Bosch and Zanussi appliances, and granite work surfaces from Red Onion Design Studio. This is part of an open-plan living, dining and kitchen space with two windows providing lots of natural light and woodland view. Off this large room are a large storage cupboard and a WC. Upstairs are a shower room and two double bedrooms. This property comes with flooring included and allocated parking, and is priced at £215,000. Key worker buyers are invited to ask about a special deal as a ‘thank you’ for their exceptional services over the past months.

Longhirst HallLonghirst Hall itself was built between 1824-8 for local landowner, William Lawson and the mansion and its grounds were later sold to a self-made coalmining magnate. Now, the estate has been converted into a range of apartments and houses while restoring and retaining many original features, and there are some sympathetically designed new build townhouses.

There’s a three-bedroom show home here, open by appointment only from 10.00am to 5.00pm, Thursday to Monday.
