There are many desirable housing locations right across the Borough.
Along the river, the Vivo Northshore development is emerging as a prime example, close to the stunning Infinity Bridge. The first of the initial 50 houses have been completed and are selling well to those who want to be close to the river, offering changes of scenery with the changes of the seasons. The second phase of 76 houses is under way.
Nearby is Whitewater Glade, a Persimmon Homes development off Portrack Lane, where two- to five-bedroomed homes and two-bed apartments are available on what was the site of the old Corus pipe mill.
Close to Stockton Town Centre is the Parkfield Phase 1 redevelopment, Nursery Gardens, built by Dunelm Homes which will provide 110 new homes when complete.
Various home ownership incentives are offered including the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme. The scheme is aimed at both first time buyers and home movers, for more information contact Help to Buy NEYH (North East, Yorkshire and Humberside) on 0113 825 6888 or visit the Help to Buy website.
Two continuing housing development success stories include the regeneration of Hardwick Estate with Meadow Rise in Stockton and Mandale Park in Thornaby.
There are also many homes close to shopping centres offering the convenience of being able to 'nip out' for shopping. Billingham College Gardens, on the former Billingham College site is a prime example, with the new residential development offering 176 homes.
There are also a fantastic range of houses available close to Stockton Town Centre in Norton whilst the redevelopment of the Swainby Road estate has seen the demolition of properties in readiness for houses to be built.
And in Ingleby Barwick, the UK's largest housing development, growth continues with Persimmon homes offering various schemes to help new buyers. The housing available in Yarm, the western and northern villages and at Wynyard continue to be much sought after.
