Northumberland housing scheme reaches major landmark

Anvil Homes, in Northumberland, has reached a significant milestone at its Great Whittington housing development in the Tyne Valley.

The housebuilder has welcomed its first residents at Briar Fields, following completion of the first new home. It has also announced the sale of a further three plots.

Briar Fields, which comprises 10 individually designed, four-bedroomed detached family homes, is located on the north-western side of Great Whittington village, four miles north of Corbridge.

The scheme started on site in May 2017 and is supporting 20 local jobs during its 18-month construction.

Alistair Carr, director at Anvil Homes, said: “We are very pleased with our progress on site at Briar Fields and particularly how well the scheme has been received.

“It was fantastic to see the first home in occupation before Christmas and we are pleased to have secured the sale of the next three homes. We will be fitting out the showhome over the next few weeks which will help to showcase the quality of life that Briar Fields has to offer.

“The specification includes bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, internal oak doors and underfloor heating throughout the ground floors, but a major attraction is also the village location in rural Northumberland.”

Anvil Homes is a family run business, established in 1993. It specialises in rural residential developments. Its Great Whittington scheme follows a number of successful developments in recent years including Slaley Village and Orchard Gap in Hexham.

The firm has now released new CGI’s of the next phase of development at Briar Fields, which is underway. Plot 8, Tarset Lodge, will be completed later this month and will be launched as the development’s showhome in February.

Briar Fields is due to complete in Autumn 2018.
