Avant Homes acquires land in Burnopfield, County Durham to deliver £16.3m development of 59 new homes


14 Feb 2021

Avant Homes North East has acquired a 12-acre parcel of land in a desirable suburb of County Durham where it will build 59 new homes for sale in Burnopfield. 

The £16.3m development received planning permission from Durham County Council in February 2021.

Located off Barcusclose Lane just 10 minutes' drive from the A1(M) and 20-minutes from Newcastle city centre, the development will feature high-quality homes across a selection of Avant Homes' design-led three and four-bedroom housetypes.

There will be 13 house designs for buyers to choose from and 15 per cent of the homes across the development will be affordable.

Following the exchange of contracts, work on the development, which is named Fairway View, is set to commence imminently. The first homes are due to go on sale at the end of February with the showhomes to follow later in the year. The first completions are expected in autumn 2021 with the overall build of Fairway View estimated to take approximately two years.

In addition to delivering new-build homes for sale in Burnopfield, Avant Homes has also committed to a community contribution of £444,000 towards local education, the provision of open green spaces, transport links and a footpath surrounding the development.

Avant Homes North East managing director, Jennifer Tupman, said: "We're very pleased to have agreed the purchase of this site and we now look forward to taking the next steps in moving the development forward.

"Burnopfield is a highly desirable location and following the huge popularity of our Causey Heights development just three miles away in Sunniside, which is selling very well, we can see there is strong demand for our product in Gateshead and surrounding areas.

"Initial groundworks will commence shortly, and we will be revealing the first homes for sale later this month."

Located in County Durham, but on the boundary of Gateshead, Fairway View is in a desirable location overlooking Hobson Golf Course. The Burnopfield village centre is just a 10-minute walk from the development with a range of supermarkets, schools, and eateries to choose from.

Fairway View will be the fourth development Avant Homes North East has launched since the beginning of 2021. The four latest developments are located across Sunderland, County Durham, and Gateshead, and will provide 557 new homes for the region with a combined gross development value of £91.6m.
