The opening weekend saw fantastic footfall throughout the day, with the lucky customers up early to reserve the first released plots. None more so than Newbiggin local Mr Jeff Gascoigne who was at the sales office from 7.30am to secure his mother her dream bungalow. Mr Gascoigne himself and his father attended the former Windsor First School (where the development is now situated). Mrs Gascoigne watched the school being demolished and saw the building work commence and has now reserved the first plot for her dream home in the village that she already lives and loves.

Ascent Homes are delighted to market this stunning beachfront development and only has 3 plots remaining to reserve on phase 1.The next phase which is likely to be released late Spring will coincide with the opening of the eagerly awaited show home which is the 4 bed Matfen overlooking the sandy bay.

Windsor View offers bespoke bungalows, semi-detached and detached houses as well as three storey townhouses. Each property has been designed to maximise natural light within the internal spaces. The three bedroom Trinity townhouse and the four bedroom Matfen also feature stunning roof terraces boasting striking views over the sweeping sandy bay and several of the properties also come with private garages. In terms of specification, kitchens are to be supplied by Symphony, tiling from Porcelanosa and bathrooms from Abacus, all providing a high-spec internal finish in order to match the breath taking location.

Ascent Homes is the house building arm of Arch, the Northumberland development company. Ascent Homes brings a fresh and frank mandate to provide quality homes which showcase the very best of local creativity and craftsmanship by utilising local architects, consultants and tradesmen to ensure its investment in housing has a direct benefit to the local economy.

Claire Scott, Ascent Homes sales manager, explains: “I’m delighted to open this beautiful beach front development and welcome our first buyer. Windsor View is a stunning location, which cannot fail to impress. We have worked hard to develop the highest quality specifications.
