First homes released for sale at new housing development in Westerhope

Construction is progressing well on a new homes development in Westerhope, where the first properties are now available to reserve.

Ashberry Homes has released a range of three and four-bedroom homes for sale at Church View, off Whorlton Lane, with prices starting from £229,995.

Church View is a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes, with a total of 184 properties being built at the site, alongside public open space with footpaths and a children’s play area.

Eight discount market value homes are being built the development and will be offered to qualifying buyers as part of the affordable housing provision at the development agreed with Newcastle City Council. Prices for these homes start from £139,950.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes, said: “We are already seeing high levels of interest in these new homes at Church View, where we have now released the first phase of houses for sale.

“Church View is in a desirable location for buyers with Newcastle city centre five miles away, just a 15-minute drive, and open countryside within walking distance of the development.

“As a result, Church View is proving to be popular with commuters working in the city, but who want to live in a semi-rural location where they can enjoy easy access to the great outdoors during their time off.”

Church View is located on the edge of Westerhope and is four miles from Ponteland town centre. Commuters can reach Newcastle city centre via the A167.

The development is part of a wider scheme known as Callerton Park, which will bring 3,000 new homes, alongside primary schools, businesses and shops, to the area.

Oliver said: “There is a huge need for new homes in the region and Ashberry Homes is helping to meet this demand by releasing the first properties for sale at Church View.

“The three and four-bedroom homes now available are perfect for families and first-time-buyers, and we are booking one-to-one appointments for prospective buyers to visit the development and find out more.”

The sales centre at Church View is currently open by appointment only in line with Government advice.
