North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Only eight homes left to purchase at sought-after Stockton development

All but eight homes have now been reserved at a housing development situated on the former Blakeston School site in Stockton.

Homebuyers have purchased 60 of the 68 houses being built for private sale at Bellway’s Old School Gardens development off Blakeston Lane.

The development features a mix of detached, semi-detached, and terraced properties for sale, ranging from three to four bedrooms in size.

It also includes 12 homes allocated as affordable housing for shared ownership and rent, comprising a mix of two and three-bedroom properties.

Hayley Teasdale, Sales Manager at Bellway Durham, said: “The demand for homes at Old School Gardens has been exceptionally strong, particularly in recent months when we have been averaging a reservation every week.

“This has been accompanied by an increase in footfall at our sales office with prospective buyers showing considerable interest, and we are therefore confident that the remaining homes will be purchased before long.

“Many of our buyers at this development are families with young children because it is in an ideal neighbourhood for raising children, with several local schools nearby. Rosebrook Primary School, which is rated good by Ofsted, is only a two-minute walk away while Harrow Gate Primary Academy and The Glebe Primary School are also within a one-mile radius of our site.

“Local residents and single professionals make up a significant proportion of buyers at the development. Those commuting to Durham, Hartlepool, or Middlesborough benefit from the close proximity to major road networks, including the A19 and the A66, as well as Stockton railway station which is less than a 10-minute drive away.”

The eight homes available include a selection of three and four-bedroom houses priced from £189,995.
