Seaham housing development proves popular as half of the homes sell

Jul 6, 2020 | Local News

Half of the homes have now sold at a new development in Seaham, showing the strength of the property market in the area.

Five-star housebuilder Bellway Durham is currently building 75 new three and four-bedroom houses at its Byron Heights development, which is located just off Dalton Heights Road in the town.

The first homes were released for sale in October last year, and interest has continued to run high ever since – even through the lockdown, when three plots were sold off plan.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager for Bellway Durham, said: “The fact that sales have remained consistent, even through lockdown, shows that not only are we producing a popular, high-quality product but also that there is still a high demand for new homes in the area despite the uncertain times we have all faced.

“It’s easy to see why the market in Seaham remains buoyant. Byron Heights enjoys a great location close to the Durham Heritage Coast, just two miles from Seaham town centre and harbour. The town’s railway station is within walking distance, while the A19 is a mile away for road links further afield.

“We’ve recently reopened our sales centre and showhome an appointment-only basis at the development, abiding by safety guidelines and social distancing measures.

“For those who would prefer to find out more online, we have also provided virtual tours on our website so people can view properties from the comfort of their own living rooms. Either way, our sales advisors will be happy to provide more information to help them find the home which best suits their needs.”

Three and four-bedroom houses are still available at Byron Heights, with prices starting from £169,995.

Bellway has a five-star rating with the Home Builders Federation (HBF), which means more than nine out of ten customers said that they would recommend the housebuilder to a friend in the HBF’s National New Homes Customer Satisfaction Survey.
