Construction firm completes 258 homes on former hospital site near Morpeth
A North East construction company has announced that it has completed work on the first phase of a new housing development near Morpeth.
Bellway North East has built 258 homes at Stannington Park and Stannington Mews on the old St Mary’s Hospital site.
The development has seen the refurbishment of the Grade II listed hospital chapel to create a new village hall and the conversion of the historic hospital administrative building into a gastropub.
With construction work complete on the first phase of homes, Bellway will soon commence work on the second phase of redevelopment at Stannington Mews.
Emma Chesterton, head of sales for Bellway North East, commented: “The wide variety of styles and sizes of the homes we have constructed at Stannington Mews has meant that we have attracted a great mix of buyers, with the one and two-bedroom apartments being perfect for first-time buyers while the larger townhouses have proven to be popular with families.
“Even though we have transformed the former St Mary’s Hospital site, we have been careful to retain a sense of its history, keeping the former chapel and administrative building to provide new amenities for local residents, as well as reflecting the architectural features of the former hospital buildings within the design of the new homes.
“This has been a landmark scheme providing much-needed new housing in a picturesque rural setting, so it’s no surprise there are now only a few properties remaining for sale.”
