The Glorious Goodridge At Bishops Park
11 Jun 2019

Linden Homes’ vibrant and exciting new development at Bishop Auckland is proving popular with homes selling quickly, from plan, within three weeks of release.

The award winning* housebuilder - with a mission to create a step change in the choice and quality of new homes in the region – is building a collection of two, three and four bedroomed properties at Bishop’s Park (DL14 8RG).

The first phase, with properties ready to move into within the next few weeks, comprises the two bedroomed, semi-detached Hardwick, the three bedroomed semi-detached Eveleigh, the three bedroomed detached Maddison and the glorious four bedroomed Goodridge.

A canopied entrance leads to a hall, which passes a large living room on the way to a fabulously equipped kitchen dining area, with modern, integrated appliances and access and views to the garden via patio doors. The ground floor also boasts a utility room, downstairs WC and integral garage.

Upstairs are three double bedrooms, the master with double en-suite shower, a single bedroom – which could double as a study or play room – and a pristine family bathroom.

Ideal for growing families, the Goodridge has been selected as one of the development’s show homes, scheduled to open next month. For now, a temporary sales office is operating from a cabin in Douglass Crescent, Thursday to Monday between 10am and 5pm.

All Bishops Park homes will enjoy spacious layouts, contemporary features and appliances and a superior standard of specification – as present in every Linden Homes properties.

Well placed for local schools, the development is also perfectly located for commuters – close to the A1M and just ten miles south of Durham and eleven north of Darlington. It 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.

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.

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.”

Of course, for those who qualify, the government backed Help to Buy** is available on all Bishops Park Homes – providing a 20% equity loan towards the cost, on which nothing need be paid for the first five years of living in the home.
