Rural Lifestyle Close To Town
29 Jan 2013

For those seeking a rural lifestyle within easy reach of urban amenities, Linden Homes’ Howden Green offers the best of both worlds.

On the edge of Howden-le-Wear, yet just over 10 miles from Durham City centre and 13 miles from the A1(M), this small development has a great deal to offer.  There are only five well proportioned three and four bedroom homes remaining.

The Greta, a three bedroom family home, is one of the show homes.  From the entrance, a long hallway leads to the contemporary kitchen/diner. Designed for modern living, the open plan kitchen features wood finish work surfaces, white cabinets and state of the art fixtures and fittings, delivering style and functionality.

A wooden floor stretches into the light, airy dining area, overlooking the garden, which can be reached through French doors. The space is dressed with dashes of rich foliage green, perfectly complimenting the wood tones, to give a natural, earthy feel, in keeping with the countryside surroundings.

The hall also provides access to the garage, two storage closets, a downstairs W.C. and stairs to the first floor.

Here, a generously sized lounge is decorated in creams, platinum and splashes of green. Two windows allow in plenty of light, offering views over the garden. The master bedroom is also located on the middle floor and has built in his and her wardrobes and an en suite bathroom - also accessible from the hall via Jack and Jill doors. The décor here is luxurious chocolate and earth tones, contrasting strikingly against the subtle pale carpet.

The second floor has two further bedrooms, a double decorated in light mocha and a single dressed in a bright leaf green, featuring a skylight window. The family bathroom boasts high quality fittings and light coloured decoration.  It is modern in style and tranquil in feel.

All the properties at Howden Green are fitted with a modern gas central heating system and high levels of insulation designed to keep the home warm and cosy and the heating bills under control.

The show home is available for viewing at Howden Green, Howden-le-Wear, DL15 8BG, Thursdays - Mondays from 10am to 5pm.There are a Range of assisted purchase schemes available on selected plots.
