A new housing development in a picturesque Northumberland Village has been completed.
The £1.1m Tulip Mews development at Heddon-on-the-Wall consists of five stone built family homes with three and four bedrooms.
Kapex Construction, part of Newcastle-based Morton Group, where appointed as Principal Contractor by the developer Newminster Properties early last year to deliver the residential scheme which sits on a former brownfield site.
Designed by Sadler Brown Architecture, Tulip Mews consists of five timber framed homes with stone-built facades.
Development was halted for almost four months because due to the location of un-recorded foundation stones from Hadrian’s Wall. These were carefully recorded and removed from site allowing the scheme to continue
Partners involved in the Tulip Mews development included Sadler Brown Architecture, Silverstone Building Consultancy (project management), Sanderson Young (selling agents) and Adelphi Consulting Engineers (Structural & Civil Engineers).
Chris Nunn, Business Development Director at Kapex Construction, said: “Tulip Mews is a beautiful small-scale residential scheme featuring five high quality three and four bedroom family homes, located in the rural village of Heddon-on-the-Wall.
“The development has had some challenges, not least due to the site’s proximity to Hadrian’s Wall. The site was fully assessed in advance of building work starting, and the uncovering of a number of archaeological treasures from Hadrian’s Wall itself resulted in delays of a few months.
“It’s been a pleasure for us to work on such an outstanding residential development and I have absolutely now doubt that these beautiful, large family homes will sell very easily.”
