Ascent Homes are opening their latest show home on a new housing development of 38 homes at Plessey Road in Blyth.

The development called “Plessey Green” consists of 26 homes for sale, with a mixture of property types including 2, 3, 4 bedroom houses, 2 bedroom bungalows and 12 x (2 bedroom) apartments for private rental, overlooking Blyth golf course.

The properties provide a good range of family homes in an ideal location close to local amenities, schools and good transport connections for commuting. The homes are located opposite Blyth golf course within the heart of the community. The houses are of high quality with quite a traditional look with the use of brick and render and offering practical interior layouts. Ascent Homes are proud to be registered with the National House Building Council (NHBC), providing extra reassurance to potential buyers. All houses have private gardens and on-plot parking bays.

In terms of specification, the internal finishes are all high-spec with luxury kitchens supplied by Symphony, a choice of Porcelonasa ceramic tiling and bathrooms from Abacus, creating bright, superbly finished, modern interiors throughout. The show home will officially open on Monday 17th October and then will be open every Thursday to Monday, 10am - 5pm.

The site has been specifically designed to complement the existing houses in the area and has maximised the surrounding assets by positioning properties looking over the attractive Blyth golf course and Miners Welfare Park. Plessey Green will create a new community to integrate within the current community, and will enhance the existing environment by providing generous and high quality green spaces.

Prices start from just £116,950 for a 2 bedroom property and help can be offered from the government backed, Help To Buy scheme, bringing the price down to £93,560, with deposits as low as 5%. (subject to criteria). Please visit to view terms and conditions.

Ascent homes is an arm of Arch - the Northumberland Development Company - which is wholly owned by Northumberland County Council. Ascent prides itself on constructing good quality homes that enhance local communities and utilises local labour and craftsmen.

Local county councillor Deirdre Campbell, explains: “The Plessey Green site is in a prominent location close to town amenities, schools and good transport links. This is a fantastic development which is creating job opportunities for local people, and housing where there is a need for good quality homes. When complete it will improve and bring new life to the area.

Arch and Ascent Homes must be congratulated for the foresight to develop the site, and also for their plans to improve local roads and infrastructure. They have a mandate to utilise local Architects, consultants and tradesmen, so this investment in housing has a direct benefit to our local economy”.

Ascent homes has a number of sites under way including  The Malting’s in Alnwick, Windsor View in Newbiggin-by-the-sea, Orchard Dene in Jesmond,  and another prime location at Commissioners Quay in Blyth, as well as many more in the pipeline.
