BARRATT North East is set to start work on a new development of homes for firsttime buyers and families in Spennymoor.

Merrington Park will provide a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes from its new County Range, some of which are being built in the North-East for the first time.

Work is due to begin on the site in Vyners Close soon.

Fenton Hewitt, the company’s sales director, said: “We’re really looking forward to starting this new development. Merrington Park is in a great location just off the A688, easy for commuting to all the region’s business centres and with schools and amenities – including the new DurhamGate shopping and leisure facilities – on its doorstep.

“We’re building three and four bedroom homes in the first phase, which will be ideal for first-time buyers and families. They represent excellent value for money and we’ll be offering keen prices and a variety of packages to help people move.

“The first homes will be released forsale early this year and we expect they will attract a great deal of interest. I would advise anyone interested to register their details with us to be kept up-to-date with the latest news.”

Barratt’s County Range designs blend traditionallystyled exteriors with freeflowing living spaces. New features include floor-to-ceiling glazed light pods which double the amount of window space compared to traditional patio doors, and redesigned kitchens with integrated dining and family areas perfect for relaxing in.

As fuel bills continue to soar, there’s good news for buyers in that these homes are around 40 per cent more energy efficient than houses built just ten years ago.
