A new housing development taking shape on the site of the former Northumbria Police headquarters is nearing completion.

Ashberry Homes is building 69 homes at Bridgemoor at Jameson Manor, off North Road in Ponteland.

Construction work began on the site in 2019 and the final properties are due to be finished in early Summer 2021.

The development includes a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses, and there are now just two homes remaining for sale.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes Durham, said: “Bridgemoor at Jameson Manor has proved to be an extremely popular site, which is no surprise as Ponteland is a very-sought after area.

“As well as being surrounded by beautiful countryside and close to several well-regarded schools, the development is also well-connected. It’s just one mile from Ponteland town centre and eight miles from Newcastle.

“Demand has been particularly high since lockdown, with 17 homes being purchased in the last three months alone. We would therefore advise anyone thinking about buying a house at the development to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

“We are looking forward to completing the final homes in the coming months and welcoming more residents to what is already becoming a vibrant new community in Ponteland.”

Bridgemoor is part of the wider 275-home Jameson Manor development being delivered jointly by Ashberry Homes and Bellway. The site was purchased for £21 million from Northumbria Police in 2018, with the money being invested back into local policing. The site had been vacant since 2016, when the force relocated to new premises nearby.

The properties still for sale at Bridgemoor at Jameson Manor are both four-bedroom detached homes which feature oak internal doors, sash windows, and upgrades to tiling and turf to front and rear gardens. Prices range from £389,995 for The Hylton, a 1336 sq ft home, to £454,995 for The Hadrian, a 1550 sq ft house.
