Open plan living proves a hit with downsizers

Ascent Homes has welcomed another resident to its Hemingway Court development in the heart of Ponteland.

Glenis Richardson made the move to the development after deciding that the maintenance and upkeep of her larger house at Darras Hall was more than she cared for.

Along with spacious accommodation and a community of mixed aged neighbours, her new home also provides her with a large balcony space to compensate for the loss of a garden.

Now settling into her two-bedroomed penthouse apartment, Glenis is excited about the future. She said:

“After moving from a larger property, I instantly fell in love with the development at Hemingway Court, as it has everything I was looking for. The penthouse is perfect for my needs and I love its light and airy interior and the amount of space it gives me.

“I’ve only moved a short distance from Darras Hall so I’m familiar with the village and I like fact that I have great access to local supermarkets, restaurants, bars and leisure facilities. It’s also a great community as everyone that I’ve met appears happy and friendly!

“The balcony gives me the outdoor area for my own manageable garden space while at the same time I also benefit from the colourful landscaping around the wider development.

“Moving to a new home is a big decision, particularly later in life, and the sales team at Ascent Homes have been so helpful, letting me take everything at my own pace, and always there to talk me through any queries that I had. I think I’ll be very happy here.”

Pauline Coltherd, sales manager at Ascent Homes’ added:

“Hemingway Court is obviously the perfect choice for Glenis, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the development. 

“We offer a great range of properties on the development attracting first time buyers, professionals and downsizers like alike. It’s been an absolute pleasure to support Glenis throughout the buying process and we will continue to be on hand for any after sales assistance she requires.”

Sales at Hemingway Court are going extremely well with over a third of the development now occupied.

The brand new show apartment is open Thursday – Monday 10am – 5pm.
