Introducing Beautiful Bishop’s Park
17 Apr 2019

Linden Homes is delighted to be bringing its vibrant and exciting take on new build homes to County Durham.

Following prestigious schemes in Morpeth and the Gateshead area, the housebuilder - with a mission to create a step change in the choice and quality of new homes in the region – will build a collection of two, three and four bedroomed properties at Bishop’s Park, Bishop Auckland.

With the sales office now open (6th April) visitors can get a glimpse of the lifestyle available at Linden Homes’ latest development. Early birds can take their pick of the two, three and four bedroomed homes available in the first release of properties, the first of which will be ready to move into by the summer.

The show home – a four bedroomed Goodridge - will be opening in July too, together with a view home – a three bedroomed Mayfield.

Ideal for first time buyers, or those with growing families, the homes will enjoy spacious layouts contemporary features and appliances and a superior standard of specification – as present in all Linden properties.

Well placed for local schools, Bishop’s Park is also perfectly located for commuters – close to the A1M motorway and just ten miles south of Durham and eleven north of Darlington. Hourly trains to and from Darlington and Middlesbrough also run from Bishop Auckland train station during the week, which is just over a mile away.

Known as the gateway to Weardale, Bishop Auckland is a bustling market town in the Vale of Durham, standing high above a meander in the River Wear it enjoys commanding views across the surrounding countryside.

The new development is just over a mile from the historic and scenic Auckland Castle along with its vast rolling grounds and deer park, which are open to the public and offer a picturesque and peaceful retreat for walkers. For those who like ‘To ruin a good walk’ as the old saying goes, the local golf course is just a short step from the development too.

Bishop’s Park is also less than two miles from local supermarkets and within walking distance of the banks and high street shops, bars and restaurants of the market town centre, ensuring that buyers will be well served by local amenities.

Finally, for those who like to get out and explore the great outdoors, this latest Linden Homes development is under an hour’s drive from both the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks.

Sales Director, Tracy Iles, says: “Details of the beautiful homes available can now be viewed at our on-site sales centre and our team can talk visitors though all the options and assistance packages that can help people make their dream move.

“For example, those with a home to sell might want to find out more about our Part Exchange** scheme, which could help to speed up the buying process. For those who qualify, we can buy their existing property. Estate agents value this home, a price is agreed and the purchase made – paving the way for a speedy move to a brand new Linden home.”
