New homes to become available
in popular market town
A group of three experienced local businessmen have
partnered to launch a local house building firm in a bid to
bring new, quality homes to Northumberland.
Emerging company Northumberland
Homes Ltd has announced its rst project
on Newgate Street, Morpeth, which will
see the former Registry Oce in Morpeth
carefully transformed into luxury
apartments, cottages and dormer
bungalows.
Much of the property, parts of which
were built in 1750 making this one of
Morpeth’s oldest buildings, is Grade II
listed. The company has pledged to
maintain much of its original architecture
during the renovations. Leading North East
property rm Bradley Hall has been
appointed to market the properties from
its Morpeth operations.
Gary Herron, Director at
Northumberland Homes Ltd said:
“Morpeth has maintained its position as
one of the most popular market towns in
the North East for many years, and it’s
popularity continues to grow. It’s a great
location which not only oers a range of
popular amenities, but also has maintained
its original architectural features.
“The site has a particularly interesting
history, having played home to some of
Northumberland’s most well-known
families in the 18th and 19th centuries,
acting as a school and latterly as the town’s
Registry Oce, until becoming unused in
2014.
“We will be sympathetically restoring
the building to keep the rich depth of
features of this historic property whilst at
the same time creating beautiful, spacious
modern apartments to live in. We have
also created several luxurious bungalows
all within what will be known as
Northumberland Gardens.”
Founding partners Gary Herron,
Michael Black and Peter Smith have
pooled their expertise to create a
professional and quality housebuilding
practice in order to meet demand in the
region. Gary has a background as a nance
and marketing professional, Michael,
specialises in, amongst other things, high
end kitchens and bathrooms while Peter
has a wealth of experience in working in
construction for national housebuilders
including Miller Homes.
The Old Registry includes mostly two
bedroom properties. There is also one
three bedroom duplex apartment and two
one bedroom apartments.
Northumberland Gardens also comprises
four bungalows and cottages.
Matt Hoy, Director of Estate Agency at
Bradley Hall said: “Northumberland
Homes Ltd is creating a number of
outstanding quality new homes in a
traditional setting. All apartments are
spacious and incorporate high ceilings and
many other traditional architectural
features.
“Impressive views are to be had either
over Newgate Street or the garden areas –
sometimes both. The bungalows have
been created to blend with both the Grade
II listed building and the surrounding
properties.”
