THE DREAM is now turning into reality for William Kiely, Owner of Burgham Park Golf Club as he sees his new £15 million luxury development start to take shape. The development set between Morpeth and Alnwick, has now opened its doors to the public, with the eagerly anticipated show home now complete.
Construction of the Northumberland development began in August 2014 with the first phase of eight three bedroom, two storey stone built cottages getting underway. Once completed, the 235-acre site will boast 50 four-star cottages and new pavilion, restaurant and leisure facilities. The first eight properties are now complete with only four remaining. Buyers can also purchase cottages from the second phase as demand is expected to be high on cottages in the first phase.
The beautiful show home is now open and has a rustic and sumptuous interior, with under floor heating and double glazed timber framed windows as standard. A contemporary twist mixing plaids with more modern fabrics to evoke a Northumbrian feel. Buyers have a vast choice on interior choices to suit all individual tastes, with high quality fabrics including the likes of Harlequin, Sanderson, Osborne and Little and Jim Dickens. Buyers can also select their furnishing packages and kitchen ranges.
Mr. Kiely said: “We are very aware of our carbon footprint so have put measures in place to ensure we are doing our best to care for the environment. We have air source heat pumps for the under floor heating which will substantially reduce energy bills.
He continued: "We’ve seen an extraordinary interest in the development. The popularity seems to be the location just off the A1 along with the quality of the cottages. I’m sure the new Show Home will give prospective purchasers an insight into the special feel of the development and the beautiful surrounding countryside.
“It’s in a perfect location for golf enthusiasts but with Northumberland having so much to offer should appeal to a much wider audience.”
“The site itself offers breathtaking views of the Northumberland countryside and as is close to the golf course, clubhouse and restaurant - there’s plenty to do on your doorstep as well as exploring the Northumberland coastline and countryside.
“Once the first 50 plots have been sold, the next phase, is to start working on the two-storey pavilion which will provide homeowners with a spa, swimming pool, bars, restaurants and much more to really get you into that relaxed frame of mind. The final stage will be the creation of a world-class golf academy with teaching bays and a driving range along with other sports facilities.”
Burgham Park Golf Club has been in operation for over 20 years. The 18-hole golf course was designed by former Ryder Cup captain Mark James and has played host to several PGA North Region Championships. Northumbrian Hills will sit in the pitch and putt area between the 10th and 18th holes.
The show home is open each Saturday and Sunday 11.00am – 4.00pm.
