Introducing luxury living at Dovecote Place.

Award-winning housebuilder, Story Homes, is getting ready to open the show home at its Dovecote Place development on Newburn Road, where more than half of the homes released so far have already been sold.

Located between the historic villages of Newburn and Throckley, the new development is one of Story Homes' 11 live developments in the North East. The housebuilder was granted approval to build the 70 new homes in February this year, and released the first homes for sale in March.

Dovecote Place is perfectly placed to enjoy semi-rural living and close proximity to the countryside, while being located only eight miles from Newcastle city centre and close to the A1 and A69.

The development features eight different house types - a mixture of semi-detached and detached three and four-bedroom homes that are built to the highest specification internally and externally.

On the exterior of the homes, a mixture of stone, brick and render have been used to give each home its individual personality, while complementing the local area and creating attractive street scenes. Included as standard are a large block paved driveway, turfed front and rear gardens, paved patio and external sensor lights.

Internally, the superior family homes benefit form light and spacious interiors, and open plan living spaces.

This includes bi-fold/French doors to patio, extensive tiling to bathrooms, bathroom fittings by Crosswater, Kelly Hoppen brassware and contemporary staircases with oak newel posts, handrails and painted spindles.

Story Homes will open the doors to its show home in late January - the four-bedroom detached 'Taunton', which is one of its most popular house types across its developments.

Lyndsey Walton, Sales Manager at Story Homes, said: "We have received a high level of interest for Dovecote Place - particularly with first-time buyers, which range from young couples to growing families. We expected this development to be popular, due to the quality and finish of the properties and the development's proximity to Newcastle. "The location is ideal for those looking for the benefits of semi-rural living, while being close to local amenities and having excellent transport links into the city centre.

"We are now looking forward to the opening of our show home in January and showing visitors what makes a Story Home different from other new builds, with our high specification that comes as standard."

Dovecote Place features certain house types that are well-suited to first-time buyers. For example, the 'Hastings' is a three-bedroom semi-detached property with driveway parking and 955 sq ft of living space. Story Homes is currently offering Help to Buy on this specific property, as well as selected other plots.

With the government-backed scheme, buyers only need a 5% deposit and a 75% mortgage, as the government will lend you up to 20% of the cost of your new home. You are not charged interest for the first five years and you can repay this loan at any time.

Lyndsey continued: "We want to support first-time buyers as much as possible, so we are pleased to be able to offer Help to Buy at Dovecote Place. We would encourage anyone looking for a first home in a fantastic location to get in touch to find out about the options available."

Prices at Dovecote Place start from PS199,950.
