West Chevington Farm is a new development of sustainably and environmentally-friendly built, luxury homes on a National Heritage listed Georgian farm site in Northumberland.
The first phase of the estate currently comprises nine stunning, country-style homes on generously sized plots, accompanied by landscaped community spaces and easy car access.
West Chevington Farm is inspired by the listed Georgian buildings of the site. Designed with the modern family in mind, generous open-plan living areas range from 1,500 to 2,700 square foot, complete with skylights, sun-rooms, bi-fold doors, balconies, contemporary courtyards, water features and beautifully landscaped walkways.
The properties are now available for sale and are being marketed by leading North East chartered surveyors and estate agents, Bradley Hall, from the Morpeth branch on 4 Newgate Street.
The site includes one converted Georgian barn boasting its original structure, as well as eight new build barns replicating the original style, using only the best locally sourced materials. A further 12 new build homes are also to be developed on the site, subject to planning permission. The development encompasses work from the best local talent – from BW Architecture and interior design ﬁrm Greatlook, to awardwinning landscapers, Glenn Kemp.
Greatlook have created a range of bespoke furniture and interior looks for West Chevington Farm. Fantastic open-plan living areas, stylish yet functional kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and beautiful bedrooms blend timeless aesthetics with contemporary twists and conveniences. Driven by their passion for well-proportioned spaces and innovative design, the unique character of the development reflects Greatlook’s creative vision. The local Greatlook team is available to consult buyers making finishing touches to homes. Additionally, Platinum Homes is committed to sustainable living and zero wastage, meaning every stage of planning and building is undertaken with the local environment in mind. This includes local oak wood, re-purposing broken rubble from West Chevington’s original site to use in roads and floors, and filtering age-old farm soil for plot gardens.
Largely untouched throughout the years, West Chevington is a small and friendly community, and one of Northumberland’s best kept secrets. The site is situated eight miles from the conveniences of Morpeth, and three miles from the spectacular Druridge Bay.
West Chevington sits in the ancient kingdom of Northumberland and is one of England’s best-loved areas of outstanding natural beauty. Home to more castles than any other region, the county boasts over 64 miles of coastline with unspoilt beaches, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and protected National Parks.
Northumberland is the least densely populated county in England, with only 62 people per square kilometre. Its history couldn’t be richer and more fascinating: scholar monks, Viking warriors, Roman conquerors and warring border politics over the gateway to Scotland.
Complete with charming hamlets and towns, powerhouse cities like Newcastle, excellent transport routes, and stunning countryside, Northumberland has it all.
West Chevington is a farming hamlet with history that can be traced back to the medieval times and beyond. Bordering West Chevington Farm is the West Chevington Farmhouse, a Grade II listed Georgian building – the only registered building of its kind in the North East.
Grade II listed buildings are subject to regulations which protect their historical and architectural significance. These buildings are of special interest, meaning alterations and building work can’t be carried out without written consent from the relevant authorities.
Platinum Homes has worked closely with Historic England from planning through to build to ensure the integrity of the structures are in line and in accordance with safeguarding legislation.
The Platinum Homes team has taken great lengths to minimise disruption to the local wildlife and environment during the construction of West Chevington Farm. Working with a local ecologist, the firm has protected and homed a family of barn owls within the estate, alongside measures to minimise the impact on their living environment.
The site has had several studies undertaken before and during the development process, in conjunction with the local council and environmental experts, so homeowners can enjoy the wonders of living amongst spectacular wildlife in Northumberland.
