Anvil Homes gets underway with new Great Whittington scheme

Northumberland-based Anvil Homes has started on site with the development of its new residential scheme in the village of Great Whittington in the Tyne Valley.

Briar Fields will provide ten individually designed four bedroomed detached family homes, the first of which will be completed in October of this year.

Anvil Homes is a family run business, which has been established since 1993 and specialises in bespoke rural residential developments. The company has won multiple awards for its schemes including Slaley Village and Orchard Gap in Hexham.

The firm uses the same pool of local sub-contractors and tradesmen for all of its developments and says the Briar Fields scheme will support 20 jobs during its 18 month construction.

Great Whittington lies seven miles North East of Hexham and the developer believes the site’s accessibility to the market town will make it a popular choice for families.

Alistair Carr, director at Anvil Homes said: “For this development we have designed ten very outwardly traditional Northumbrian homes, which are all double fronted and stone built with timber sash windows to blend sympathetically with the rural surroundings. Internally the properties will offer the highest levels of contemporary living, each one enjoying a unique character of its own. The specification includes bespoke kitchens, internal oak doors and under floor heating throughout the ground floors.”

Planning permission was granted by Northumberland County Council last summer for the Briar Fields development on land at Hill House Close on the north western side of Great Whittington village.

The firm has appointed Youngs RPS as selling agents on the scheme.

Kim Harrison, sales manager at Youngs RPS’ Hexham office said: “We are anticipating a high level of interest in Briar Fields due to the strength of its location and the quality of the build. Anvil Homes’ last development sold off plan and it would be fantastic if we could achieve similar results for them with this scheme. Great Whittington is a beautiful Northumberland village with excellent access to leisure amenities in Corbridge, Matfen and Hexham as well as a number of train stations and good schools in close proximity.”

Briar Fields is due to be fully complete in Autumn 2018.
