Half of first homes released at Chancel Place sold in less than a month

October 2017

Half of the first homes released at our new development in the Northumberland village of Longhoughton have been sold within three weeks of its launch.

We had plans approved to build 66 new homes to the north of Station Road in March this year. Work started on-site during the summer, with the development – named Chancel Place – officially launching in late September.

Chancel Place comprises a collection of semi-detached and detached three, four and five-bedroom family homes across a range of ten house types.

Gillian Bell, Sales Manager at Story Homes, said: “We expected Chancel Place to be popular, but sales in the first three weeks have exceeded our expectations and indicate that there will be high demand for this development.

“We have had interest from a wide variety of buyers so far, including local residents, families looking to move out of the city, and even those searching for a holiday home. Longhoughton is a great place to live – residents can experience the benefits of rural village life combined with the close proximity of the coast and countryside, and excellent transport links to nearby towns and major cities to the north and south.

“We believe that we are offering something different from other developers in the North East with our high specification that comes as standard, from our partner brands such as Porcelanosa, Kelly Hoppen and Crosswater, as well as fully turfed front and rear gardens. We are now based on-site in our Marketing Suite, and are looking forward to continuing to meet potential buyers and introducing them to the development.”

As well as making a positive contribution to the area’s housing supply, the scheme will include the creation of landscaped areas and bring additional benefits to the community through direct and indirect opportunities for suppliers, contractors and local businesses in Northumberland.

In addition, according to figures calculated by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), the building of 66 homes will support the employment of nearly 300 people, including apprentices and trainees. We would like to invite anyone interested in working on our Chancel Place site, particularly bricklayers, to email to register their interest.

To find out more about living at Chancel Place, call into our Marketing Suite between 11am and 5pm Thursdays to Mondays, email or call Yvonne on 07870 881155.
