A new housing scheme in Newcastle’s Lower Ouseburn Valley is proving immensely popular with potential buyers as work commences on the former Lower Steenberg’s Yard.
Brought to life by real estate firm PfP Igloo, the project will consist of 28 two and three-bedroomed luxury homes, alongside 9,000 sq ft of commercial space, and is expected to reach completion by spring 2021.
The Lower Steenberg’s Yard scheme is part of a comprehensive transformation of the Lower Ouseburn Valley which also includes developments at Malmo Quay, Spillers Quay, areas close to the Tyne Bar and a small site on nearby Maling Street.
Jan Dale, Director of North East executive estate agents Urban Base, is driving the sales after having been successfully involved with the award-winning Malings development on the adjoining site.
Commenting on the development, Jan said: “Following the outstanding, and unprecedented success of the Malings regeneration, a 70-home scheme, this new development offers larger mezzanine homes, all with their own front doors, and is long-awaited by the local community and buyers alike,
“We are delighted to report registered buyers are already waiting for the release of these exciting new homes, which will further enhance the lifestyle on offer to both work and live in the amazing village-community of the Ouseburn.”
Lower Steenberg’s Yard is steeped in history, opening as an imported cattle and sheep quarantine facility in 1876, the yard fell into several hands before becoming derelict in the late 1980s.
