After launching less than two years ago, Northumberland’s award-winning housebuilder, Ascent Homes, is certainly making its presence known with nine sites either planned or under development throughout the region.

Ascent Homes is passionate about creating high-quality houses. Each development location is carefully selected in the most striking locations, from beachfront tranquillity to contemporary urban living to idyllic rural settings, all chosen to complement their unique homes which seamlessly enhance their individual surroundings.

Their first site to come to market was Windsor View in Newbiggin, offering a contemporary mix of 24 two, three and four bedroom homes in a stunning beach front location which has proved exceptionally popular, with only 5 plots remaining for sale.

This site was closely followed by Plessey Green in Blyth, offering a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes as well as two bedroom bungalows and apartments, providing family homes close to local amenities, schools and good transport connections.

The Maltings, in central Alnwick, was launched in January. The 37 carefully designed one and two bedroom apartments and penthouses are the result of a multi-million pound refurbishment of the former Malthouse. Marrying the history and beauty of Alnwick with an unparalleled take on contemporary living, The Maltings is a truly unique residential development in one of England’s most sought-after towns.

As well those currently on site, Ascent Homes has a number of developments coming soon across the region.

Situated in the heart of Northumberland, Allerburn Gate in Alnwick is a mix of 20 luxury, new build properties and conversions of existing buildings where you will find two, four and five bedroom properties – apartments, detached homes and bungalows.

For those who like the seaside, look no further than Ellington, a new development which will soon begin on the former Ellington Colliery site with a house style to suit everyone, offering apartments, bungalows, town houses, semi-detached and detached homes.

For city dwellers, Ascent Homes plans an exciting development of 11 four and five bedroom luxury homes in Jesmond.

With a land bank of five years plus and ambitious plans for the future, they are guaranteed to ‘ascend’ within the housing market.
