New sales office and showhome to open at Bowburn development

May 11, 2023 | Business

Bellway Durham is preparing to open a sales arena at new housing development in Bowburn.

The housebuilder is building 91 homes at Clarence Gate, which forms part of the Integra 61 commercial and residential scheme situated just off Junction 61 of the A1(M).

The developer is set to open the doors to a sales arena, with a new showhome and sales office off Rosalind Franklin Way in July. The showhome will be a four-bedroom detached Mercer house type.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager at Bellway Durham, said: “We are busy preparing the new sales arena at Clarence Gate so that we can give visitors the chance to more easily imagine what life might be like in a new home here.

“We have already received a significant number of enquiries from potential purchasers and the showhome will provide homebuyers with the opportunity to see a completed property on the development.

“There has been such strong interest here that we brought forward our launch date to December so we could release the first selection of homes onto the market. We anticipate that the mix of three and four-bedroom properties being delivered here will appeal to a range of buyers but particularly to families needing more room at home.”

Clarence Gate, which is situated just off Junction 61 of the A1(M), is part of the wider Integra 61 project, a mixed-used scheme which is set to create 270 new homes, 4,000 jobs and a £2 billion boost to the regional economy over the next decade.

Online sales giant Amazon has moved into its new two million sq ft fulfilment centre, which employs more than 1,000 staff. The Integra 61 masterplan also includes a 70-bed hotel, a care home, a pub/restaurant and retail units, while Costa Coffee has already opened a drive-thru outlet on the site.

Oliver said: “Bellway Durham is proud to be playing a key role in this incredibly ambitious plan which is the biggest mixed-use employment-led initiative the North East has seen for a generation. Construction is progressing well at Clarence Gate and we are hoping to be in a position to hand over the keys to the first residents in the summer.”
