Open day for town houses in rural idyll.

WITH a new showhome open, and following the completion of the residents' walled garden, a special promotional weekend is being held today and tomorrow at a new development set in glorious grounds.

The open weekend is being held at Axwell Park in Blaydon and developers DARE are hoping that as many people as possible will visit the impressive new homes. Many occupants of The Gardens, a development of modern townhouses in the grounds of Axwell Park, were initially only browsing when they came to discover the rural idyll. Sales manager Gwen Latimer said: "When our signage first went up people were naturally curious as to what was happening here at Axwell, with the estate and Mansion House having lain neglected for many years.

"Some people were out for a Sunday afternoon walk and couldn't resist coming in to take a look when our first showhome opened. We found that people were amazed at what was going on here, at the quality of the properties being built, the gorgeous views across the Derwent Valley and the fact that although in this peace and quiet, they were only a mile from the MetroCentre." Gwen added: "We seemed to hit the right note with couples who wanted some outside space as well as a good flexible layout inside."

The Gardens offer buyers a contemporary, easy-to-maintain home with good outside and inside space.

Each townhouse has its own extensive south-facing dining terrace accessed from bi-fold doors. Here they can sit and savour a glass of wine after a hard day's work and appreciate the stunning views.

Buyers can also look down on to the recently completed walled garden which is for the townhouse residents' use only.

The new showhome is the second at the development and again showcases a striking contemporary look, showing off the quality fixtures and fittings. The three floors of accommodation house four bedrooms.

Specification includes a German Wellman kitchen, integrated AEG appliances including convection oven, microwave and five-ring burner hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Bathroom fittings in the main family bathroom and the en-suite wet room are from Laufen and Vitra. A further contemporary designer edge is given to the property with bi-fold doors and a feature spiral staircase. All the townhouses at The Gardens have additional external parking and are highly energy efficient, featuring the latest heat recovery systems which extract heat from the vented air. They also offer a 10-year insurance backed guarantee.

DARE has restored the park and grounds at Axwell to their former splendour, including the wild flower meadows and woodland walks. The refurbishment of Mansion House will be coming soon.

Prices for townhouses at The Gardens, Axwell Park are from pounds 395,000.
