The region’s leading property firm, Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, has reached the impressive milestone of welcoming £91.5m of new build properties to the market during 2018.
The success of the first half of the year is set to continue, and the firm predicts that it will comfortably surpass £100m by the close of the year.
Bradley Hall’s new homes division has been working in partnership with the firm’s recently launched land and development department to bring a ‘field to finish’ approach to housebuilding and sales.
Matt Hoy, director of Estate Agency, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for not only Bradley Hall, but also for the region as a whole. With new build developments comes new opportunities for a range of skilled jobs, a boost in the local economy and much needed opportunities for those looking for their first or next home.
“High demand for housing has been topical for some time, and we are now reaching a point where we can breathe easily knowing that we are on the path to resolving the ‘housing crisis’ within our region.
“We have been working on a range of different developments across the North East, from affordable housing to modern and contemporary mansions. We are a property agency which can offer a bespoke and high-quality service for everyone.
“The integration of the land and development department, alongside other specialist property departments within Bradley Hall, has provided us a full service, field to finish approach. We are able to take a new build project from the initial land acquisition process to completing sales of all units, providing housebuilders the most efficient service possible.”
The new build properties add to an already impressive portfolio of traditional stock which the firm is also marketing from its network of five residential offices in Alnwick, Morpeth, Gosforth, Sunderland and Durham.
New build schemes with Bradley Hall currently include premium style homes at The Fairways in Morpeth by national housebuilder Linden Homes and Barley Croft in Bedlington by local housebuilder Gatsby Homes. Modern mansions within Ramside Park, Durham are being marketed with the firm from £1.6m, each property coming with a complimentary membership to Ramside Golf and Spa, with other luxurious homes available within The Walled Garden, Gosforth built by All Saints Living priced from £795,000 to £835,000.
Affordable homes include Valley View and Woodhouse Mews in Gateshead, and homes and bungalows in Barnes View Sunderland.
Head of land and development for Bradley Hall, Jonathan Rudge, said: “The development sector, and specifically the residential development sector, has never had greater focus in the Government’s policy agenda. In the Housing White Paper Theresa May talked of the need to ‘fix our broken housing market’, addressing the decline in home ownership and committing to a long-term target of delivering 300,000 new homes across the UK.
“As a firm we are committed to providing a full-service approach to housebuilding in order to support this target and are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone just half way through the year. We have fantastic relationships with some of the leading national and local housebuilders and look forward to continuing to grow our client base and our reputation as the ‘go-to’ firm for new build homes.”
