AFFORDABLE housing provider Hellens Residential has delivered 11 new bungalows at Marley Fields in Wheatley Hill, with prices starting at only £108,500.

The two-bedroomed bungalows, which are available for affordable home ownership, are conveniently located east of Durham City, surrounded by beautiful open countryside.

Internally the properties provide a very high standard of specification. Each bungalow’s entrance hallway leads to an impressively-sized kitchen/dining area, providing a multi-purpose living space perfect for entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is the living room with French doors to a private rear garden with patio area.

The bungalows have two good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. Each home also has its own designated car parking space.

Affordable housing schemes provide homes at prices significantly below the prevailing market value for people who are unable to afford to buy or rent homes on the open market. They can be provided on a rental or home ownership basis.

“Our fantastic new Wheatley Hill bungalows are available to residents or employees in the local Durham area, providing much-needed affordable homes," said Kate Hellens, managing director of Hellens Residential.

“We want to help local people who are currently priced out of the housing market and struggling to find high-quality housing in an area where they want to live. The bungalows are proving to be very popular with small families, couples and individuals alike, who appreciate the practical and stylish design.”

Despite being situated in a beautiful semi-rural location, Marley Fields offers excellent road links which make travel across the region convenient. The A181 connects Wheatley Hill with the A19 and Peterlee to the east, with the A1 and Durham lying to the west.
