Gleeson unveils new show homes in Chopwell

Gleeson Homes has opened three stunning new show homes at Moorland Green, its development in Chopwell.

To celebrate the launch of the show homes, Gleeson invited Councillor Lynne Caffrey, Chair Gateshead Health and Wellbeing Board; Councillor John Adams, Housing Portfolio Lead; Councillor Hugh Kelly, Housing, Environment and Healthier Communities Committee and Amanda Reed, Housing Growth Development Manager at Gateshead Council along to officially open the show homes with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Councillor John Adams, Housing Portfolio Lead for Gateshead Council said:

“These new homes are a fantastic boost for Chopwell, a beautiful part of our Borough that offers expansive green spaces perfect for raising a family. This is exactly the kind of new-build housing we need in Gateshead, as it supports our ambition to offer affordable housing that meets the aspirations of our residents. The sustainable heating installed in the properties is a welcome bonus too, given that Gateshead has pledged to be Net Carbon Zero by 2030.”

Featuring some of Gleeson’s most popular house types, at Moorland Green there are three, three bedroom show homes including the popular semi-detached Tyrone, the semi-detached Woodford and the detached Kilkenny all complete with gardens and off-street parking.

Sarah Marsden, Divisional Managing Director for Gleeson’s North Eastern Division said:

“I was delighted to have the opportunity to welcome the councillors to Moorland Green to officially open our show homes. Moorland Green is one of three developments throughout Gleeson that is trialling an air source heat pump in one of the show homes. It was a fantastic opportunity to show the councillors this and explain how we are focussed on becoming a more sustainable, economical company.”

Prices at Moorland Green currently start at £132,995 for a three bedroom home, with homes available to purchase using the Governments Help to Buy: Equity Loan, requiring just a 5% deposit.

Moorland Green is a stunning new development set in the semi-rural village of Chopwell, Gateshead. The former coal mining village is well situated close to local amenities, has great transport links and boasts a beautiful woodland of mixed conifer and broadleaf, covering almost 900 acres of the Derwent Valley.

A unique housebuilder, Gleeson builds high quality, affordable homes, for people that need them the most, in the areas that they want to live throughout the North and Midlands. This development of 205 homes  brings to the area a whole host of employment opportunities for local people, sub-contractors and young people looking to start an apprenticeship in construction.

The Sales Office at Moorland Green is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
