First homes on sale at ‘exclusive’ luxury apartment development in Morpeth

The first apartments at an ‘exclusive’ new development in Morpeth have been released for sale as work progresses on the luxury homes.

Ida Homes, which is based in Morpeth, is delivering 18 new two and three-bedroom apartments across two buildings at King Edward’s Place, off Collingwood Lane.

The development will feature seven two-bedroom apartments and 11 three-bedroom apartments, on land which formerly belonged to the neighbouring King Edward VI school. The housebuilder has released all 18 homes for sale. These first homes are due to be ready to move into in September.

Charlie Maling-Dunn, Operations Director at Ida Homes, said: “This is a much-anticipated launch of a flagship development for Ida Homes, showcasing our commitment to building homes of heritage in Northumberland.

“There has been a great deal of interest in these impressive apartments, which are situated just a 10-minute walk from Morpeth town centre. They have been designed to offer space, luxury and convenience. The largest of the apartments span 1,700 sq ft, which is typically the size of a family home.”

Every property will feature an electric vehicle charging point, its own private outdoor space and residents will have access to shared landscaped gardens and a communal patio area. The development features a secure private underground car park, with two spaces per home and a lift service to all floors.

As part of the planning agreement for King Edward’s Place, Ida Homes is to contribute £180k towards the provision of affordable housing for local people and £108k towards schools in Morpeth.

Charlie continued: “Alongside building these superb new homes, the financial contributions we are making as part of the development will deliver a significant upgrade to local facilities and will leave a lasting legacy for both existing residents and future generations in Morpeth.

“This development is the first new project to open for Ida Homes since the company was formed in 2022 and the design, which was praised by local authority planners, is one of which we are incredibly proud.”

Ida Homes is also building new homes in Belford and the company recently applied for planning permission to refurbish Shoreston Hall, which is located between Seahouses and Bamburgh.
