Housebuilder acquires land to continue North East expansion

North East housebuilder Homes by Carlton is pushing ahead with its expansion strategy as the company acquires land to develop and complete its single largest site.

The award-winning County Durham developer, which has successfully delivered 50 homes on phase one of its Middleton Waters site in Middleton St George, has acquired the remainder of the land to complete the 198-unit scheme.

Middleton Waters, surrounded by ponds and country fields, is being developed in four phases over several years. Demand has been strong for the recently completed phase one with only one home remaining for sale.

Homes by Carlton will soon be launching phase 2, which will comprise 68 luxury 2,3, 4 and 5-bedroom homes, designed to a high-quality specification and with the family in mind. Construction is due to begin in the coming weeks.

Simon Walker, managing director of Homes by Carlton, said: “With recent investment into infrastructure and transport links, such as the transformation of Teesside International Airport – which is just a six-minute drive from our Middleton Waters development – Middleton St George and the wider area of Darlington is becoming an increasingly attractive place to live.

“The remaining phases of this scheme will be delivered over a four to five-year development programme and forms part of our commitment to invest over £60 million in delivering high quality homes throughout the North East. We’re excited to bring these homes to market and once again showcase our bespoke designs and high specification.”

Emma Worth, development manager at Homes by Carlton, added: “This 198-unit scheme will be the largest to-date for Homes by Carlton. We’re delighted to be expanding our footprint throughout Tees Valley and County Durham, creating a bespoke product that will fill a gap in the market for prospective buyers looking for something different in the North East.”

The housebuilder has a series of sites already well under development including Thorpe Paddocks at Thorpe Thewles; The Langtons in Redmarshall; and Eastfields in Whitton. Other potential sites are already in planning.

Homes by Carlton – supported by regional investment firm Growth Capital Ventures – is creating a significant pipeline at key locations across the North East and aims to deliver more than 500 new homes over the coming years.
