Regional housebuilder Homes by Carlton has started work on a housing development on land at sought-after Witton Gilbert, County Durham.

The County Durham-based company intends to build 29 homes on the site, which will now be known as Beauford Park. The development will be a mix of three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes designed to appeal to families.

Among these, Homes by Carlton is delivering a number of homes available to first-time buyers through the First Homes scheme.

Beauford Park represents an £8 million investment and forms part of a £60 million commitment from Homes by Carlton to deliver high quality homes throughout the North East, creating hundreds of jobs over the coming years.

Simon Walker, managing director of Homes by Carlton, said: “Thanks to its perfect location on the outskirts of bustling and historic Durham City and the clear demand for beautiful and practical homes that meet the needs of the local area, the interest we’ve had in Beauford Park has been exceptional.

“I’m excited to now be one step closer to bringing these luxury homes to market. We’re looking forward to showcasing our bespoke designs and high specification to prospective buyers in the area. As a growing regional housebuilder, we pride ourselves in building highly bespoke homes that consider the local community and environment.

“The development of Beauford Park will deliver much-needed housing to the area, allowing for a wealth of attractive options for home movers.”

Beauford Park is the latest Homes by Carlton scheme with a focus on luxury family homes. The award-winning housebuilder has a series of sites already well under development including Thorpe Paddocks at Thorpe Thewles; Middleton Waters at Middleton St George; The Langtons in Redmarshall; and Eastfields in Whitton.

Having delivered five schemes across the North East, Homes by Carlton is entering its next phase of growth.

Emma Worth, development manager at Homes by Carlton, said: “We are committed to continuing to build upon our reputation of delivering high quality, distinctly designed family homes in sought-after locations. Beauford Park is set to be another example of this commitment.”

“As we move through 2023 and beyond, we will deliver our pipeline of 500 new homes, and continue to add to it through strategic land acquisition.”
