Situated in an enviable position on Church Lane in Whitburn Village, the development commands an exceptional location within the region and boasts easy access to amenities as-well-as being within one of the pinnacle areas in the North East.
The traditional material palette used in the development compliments the surroundings and offers a contrast to the contemporary built form of the dwellings.
The three floor, 5 townhouses have been finished to a luxury standard, with 5 bedrooms coupled with 4 bathrooms; two of which are en-suites finished to a high quality. The high specifications included underfloor heating to the ground floor, full wall and floor tilling, half height mirrored walls to all bathrooms as-well-as bespoke kitchens. Each property also had a central atrium which stretched from the ground floor to the top of the second floor vaulted ceiling.
The development includes a number of associated landscape spaces and features, which sit in harmony with the buildings architecture; enhancing the historical and ecological context of Church Lane. To the rear of the dwellings are private lawn gardens with a paved woodland walkway for the sole use of the residents.
The area has been landscaped to provide a woodland walkway, with seating areas and views over Whitburn Cricket Club as well as pergola and a large formal lawn. The previously damaged and vandalised tithe barn wall to the northern boundary of the development is one of the oldest walls in Whitburn and was dutifully restored as part of the project’s external works.
The development was constructed on behalf of Stella Property Investments and is a perfect example of our partnering philosophy. Tolent fully-funded the construction and were paid from sales receipts. Uner the model, Tolent received an agreed overhead and profit on their construction cost together with finance charges to cover the build period. Under the arrangement all the developer’s profit rests solely with the developer.
Church Lane demonstrates Tolent’s ability to deliver and fully fund a luxury housing development through collaborative working and spearheading innovative sales support initiatives; whilst paying homage to the local area and its rich history
“We are pleased to announce commencement on site at our prestigious development at Church Lane, Whitburn. Situated in a superb location adjacent to Cornthwaite Park, we aim to deliver a unique, contemporary development aimed at the discerning purchaser. We are delighted to have secured Tolent Living as the Building Contractor, not only a quality contractor but a Company strong in community engagement. The site has lain dormant and neglected for a number of years and together we look forward to integrating the site back into the village”.
