Mayor opens new Gleeson Show Homes in Peterlee

Gleeson Homes was joined by the Mayor of Peterlee, Councillor Scott Meikle and Chairman of Shotton Parish Council, Councillor Dixon Blakey at its Stephenson Court development on Stephenson Road, to officially open the new show homes.

New homes at Stephenson Court are now available to buy with prices starting from £92,995.  Christine Douglas, Sales Manager for Gleeson Homes said, “Our new homes are proving really popular with local people due to their affordable prices, with mortgage repayments which are often cheaper than local rent levels.  All our houses include a driveway and front and rear gardens and we also offer a range of schemes to assist first time buyers, such as the Government backed Help to Buy.  Stephenson Court is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and other amenities.”

On looking around the show homes, Mayor of Peterlee, Councillor Meikle commented, “I am very impressed with how affordable the homes are for local people. We are committed to supporting good quality housing developments that meet the needs of local people who want to own a home of their own.”

Chairman of local village Shotton Parish Council, Councillor Blakey, was also delighted and commented, “Gleeson Homes are making it easier for local young people to get onto the property ladder whilst involving the community.  We look forward to seeing further Gleeson developments in the area in future.”

MJ Gleeson has recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK due to the housebuilder’s use of environmentally friendly materials such as gravel on driveways, commitment to Living Wage and working closely with local communities in which they build through the Gleeson Community Matters scheme.

In addition to promoting home ownership to local young people and helping them to get onto the property ladder Gleeson is dedicated to making a difference in the community, by providing job opportunities for local people, offering apprenticeship schemes and providing sponsorship for local junior sports teams.

The Sales Office and Show Homes at Stephenson Court are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.  Click here for more information on the development.
