Only one hour after the show house opened at the Linden Homes’ Centurion Park development in Haltwhistle, the first plot was reserved with another reservation following on day two.
Demand certainly looks assured for this niche housing scheme, constructed from locally sourced stone and blending perfectly with its surroundings.
Councillor Alan Sharp officially opened Centurion Park and confirmed that there had been a lot of interest in the development by local people in recent weeks. He said:
“This is a real haven for modern living. I am delighted that Linden Homes, which develops all over the country, has chosen to build 14 new homes in our town - the first new development close to the local amenities of Main Street.
“I am also pleased that the old nursery gardens site, which had been neglected for many years, will now contain such a fine mix of housing with a house type to suit everyone. We need more housing here like this to keep the town vibrant and attract younger people to stay. All in all, Centurion Park is an excellent development of quality homes at affordable prices.”
The public certainly seemed to think so too with 40 individual viewings of the show home and view home over the first two days.
Regeneration director, Mark Wilson, added: “We are delighted with the reaction and feedback we have had so far. People love the designs and the location. I think it is going to be a very successful development for Linden Homes. We will be releasing details of the phase two prices for the larger plots, in a few weeks.”
Comprising a mix of three and four bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached homes with high quality fixtures and fittings, the homes at Centurion Park benefit from superb views to the south and each house type has a Roman name, in keeping with the heritage of the area.
