Two units on the site of 16 new homes at Buchanan Estates’ Southfields housing development at Acklington have now been reserved, with a great deal of interest shown in the development following its official launch over the recent Bank Holiday weekend.

Julie Walker of selling agent WalkersXchange, says demand is extremely strong for properties in Northumberland and has been amazed by the number of people interested in the Southfields development.

She said: “There isn’t much to see yet on the site as construction has only started recently, so we are advising interested purchasers to contact us directly or visit our sales office in Stannington for more information, where we can show them the house plans and provide a detailed brochure.

The Bamburgh, a five-bedroom detached home with main bathroom plus two en suites priced from £470,000.

“It’s been an incredible first weekend with 30 or so calls and enquiries via the marketing portals since the development went live from house buyers who are looking to buy in this part of the world. The standard of fit out and finish on offer at Acklington is extremely good, with the range of house types available an added benefit.”

Surgo Construction, a local building contractor, is undertaking the build, with the first units expected to be ready for occupation in the autumn with the entire development finished by the summer of 2022.

Buyers can choose from a selection of two-bedroom bungalows, three-bedroom semis, four-bedroom semis and four and five-bedroom detached homes designed in a traditional style with private gardens and garaging all set within a traditional courtyard arrangement.

William Davies of Buchanan Estates, the site owner, said: “I have every confidence that these houses will sell quickly as they are sensibly priced and appeal to a wide range of buyers - starting at £200,000 for a two-bed bungalow and rising to £470,000 for the five-bed detached with a variety of options in between.

“Our partnership with local building contractor Surgo Construction, who have an established track record for building homes of quality, should give any would-be buyers looking for a new home in Northumberland added reassurance.”
