Dere Street Homes - Longhirst Hall

Longhirst Hall, Morpeth, NE61 3LL

From £135,000 to £275,000


Set amongst its own grounds and surrounded by trees and open green spaces, is the stunning Longhirst Hall.  Built between 1824-8 for local landowner, William Lawson, it is considered to be one of architect John Dobson’s finest buildings. The impressive mansion, with its extensive grounds, was bought by self-made coal mining magnate James Joicey in 1887 and it remained in Joicey hands until 1936.

The development consists of a range of thoughtfully detailed designs ranging from one, two and three bedroom apartments, three bedroom townhouses, right up to three, four and five bedroom houses with the grandest being the seven bedroom conversion of the original Grade II listed Hall providing some 10,325 sq ft of living space. There are also four other original historic homes for sale ranging from a five bedroom 6,542 sq ft home to a three bedroom former coach house all designed by John Dobson, the builder of Grey Street. In addition, the conversion includes nine large open plan three bedroom townhouses  and 13 one, two and three bedroom apartments together with two additional new build three bedroom homes – a total of some 30 properties.


Each apartment here is unique and has been thoughtfully designed to retain character,  maximise space and create light filled interiors with a variety of high quality fixtures and fittings including granite worktops and integrated appliances as standard. The range of designs means that there is something to tempt a wide range of buyers, from professionals to those looking to downsize.  The apartments offer everyone a unique opportunity to enjoy life in this peaceful corner of a private development.


Formed in 2001, Durham-based Dere Street Homes have built up an enviable reputation for the creation of not only small and exclusive developments, but also larger developments using a range of two, three and four bedroom house designs.

Whilst the projects may have differed, Dere Street Homes’ adherence to the very highest standards of quality, design, construction and finishing have remained constant throughout and their latest development is built and finished to the same high standards as previous successful schemes.
