OPEN days will give house hunters the chance to look round a brand new development of luxury homes in the heart of rural Northumberland.

Partner Homes’ Thornton Gate will be open for viewings on Saturdays June 16 and 23 from 11am to 2pm.

And managing director, Leigh Cresswell, says those interested should act fast to take advantage of a special offer.

“For anyone who reserves before June 30 we are offering to pay the stamp duty – that’s a bonus of several thousand pounds to spend on furnishings, a family holiday or just to keep in your pocket!”

The exclusive new build development comprises just four four and five bedroom homes priced from £379,995. Thornton Gate is set in a sought-after location just five miles from the pretty market town of Hexham.

Buyers can choose from The Newbury with its separate utility room and study; the 2.5 storey Glenmore which has five bedrooms; or The Chestnut, with integral garage and French doors from the kitchen diner to the garden.

Each house has been sympathetically designed to be in-keeping with the charm and character of the local area, while inside a high-quality selection of branded appliances and carefully chosen finishes come as standard.

Extra touches like ensuite bathrooms to master bedrooms and plenty of storage help families manage busy lives, while open-plan layouts create elegant and contemporary living spaces.

Northumberland is the quietest and least populated national park in England and Wales – making it the ideal choice for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Located close to the historic Stanegate Roman road, Thornton Gate sits between the picturesque villages of Fourstones and Newbrough, surrounded by rolling countryside.

Easy access to the A69 and local railway stations means it’s an ideal location for those commuting to Newcastle – perfect for busy professionals looking for a better work-life balance.

Thornton Gate has been designed with sustainability in mind to create homes that save energy and keep bills to a minimum.

High levels of insulation, excellent gas central heating boilers and thermostatic radiators provide perfect control.

They are responsibly built too – Partner Homes has sourced the finest sustainable materials, including timber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
