Full description

Set amongst its own grounds, surrounded by trees and open green spaces, is the stunning Longhirst Hall. Built between 1824-8 for local landowner, William Lawson, it is considered to be one of architect John Dobson’s finest buildings. The impressive mansion, with its extensive grounds, was bought by self-made coal mining magnate James Joicey in 1887 and it remained in Joicey hands until 1936. Used in various roles over the next 40 years, it stood empty for several years before it was bought, restored and converted into a country house hotel.

A popular wedding venue, Longhirst’s many sporting facilities include cricket grounds, a golf course and all-weather, floodlit tennis courts, football and hockey pitches. The hotel closed in March 2014 with the whole property remaining empty until being purchased by Dere Street Homes early in 2016 and lovingly restored into five exceptionally spacious properties whilst also converting the later additions into luxurious houses and apartments.

The development will consist of a range of thoughtfully detailed designs ranging from two and three bedroom apartments and three bedroom houses, right up to three, four and five bedroom properties. The homes all come complete with stunning kitchens and bathrooms, open plan living spaces and extensive bedrooms with tranquil views over mature woodland and landscaped gardens. The large houses blend with the apartments to create a community in this beautiful setting. Set within classically landscaped grounds and surrounding woodlands, the development is within minutes of Morpeth Town Centre and has direct access to the A1(M) via the new Morpeth Northern Bypass.Plot 9 features an expansive open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with superb floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors which open fully onto the rear garden, truly allowing the outdoor and indoor living spaces to be brought together. A separate snug, utility and WC complete the ground floor with stairs leading to the first floor landing. The spacious master bedroom comes with full en-suite facilities, with superb views over the rear gardens, whilst the two front-facing bedrooms share the large family bathroom. Externally the property has a single garage with electric oak door.
