Images of how a 288-property housing estate in County Durham will look once it's built have been revealed as part of a campaign by the housebuilder behind the project.

According to Miller Homes, more than 600 house hunters have registered an interest in the new Fellside Gardens site overlooking the Lanchester Valley, at Delves Lane, Consett.

And now the company, which currently has ten sites under development across the North East, has released images of some of the 288, sustainable, homes that will be built.

Take a look at the homes below:

Many also incorporate high-specification energy-saving features such as external electric vehicle charging points, flue gas and waste water heat recovery systems and solar PV diverters which divert excess electricity to the hot water cylinder.

The properties have been finished in a variety of materials, such as stone and red brick and the four-bedroom Charleswood reflects the strong trend for painted wood panelling with complementary exterior paintwork.

“There has been considerable interest in this development,” said sales director Lauren Angus, “I would urge anyone interested in attending the event to book online as soon as possible.”
