The WhatHouse? team reports on our current favourite new build home for sale – today, it’s a luxury four-bedroom house type called ‘The Forrester’, which Dere Street Homes is offering at its Wynyard Rise development in Wynyard, in the County Durham countryside.

‘The Forrester’ can be found on Plot 43. It’s a property set out over two floors, with a spacious integral double garage accessible from the hallway.

There’s plenty of room for an eight-seat dining table, the kitchen area has a breakfast bar and there’s full-height bi-fold doors at the rear, opening out to the garden. This floor also has a cloakroom and utility room.

The hallway is a special feature of the home, as it has double-height glazing at the front of the south-facing home, flooding it and the staircase with natural light. Upstairs, all four bedrooms are sizeable doubles and come with built-in wardrobes. The principal bedroom has the luxury of a dressing area and an en suite shower room. To complete the home is the bathroom, with separate bath and shower.
