On Site Amble

We are working with Home Group on a residential scheme on the outskirts of Amble to provide much needed housing in Northumberland. The phased development at Longstone Manor will see a total of 185 homes built over the next few years.

A mixed blend of family homes is being constructed across the site, including two-, three- and four-bedroom houses, along with one-bedroom tyneside flats and bungalows. The development includes homes for affordable rent and shared ownership, as well as outright sale through Persona Homes.

The neighbourhood design has a key focus on public open space with a rich biodiversity to maintain and encourage wildlife. A Sustainable Urban Drainage Scheme will also be constructed.

Esh has been appointed as the design and build contractor and will work in partnership with Curtins, P+HS Architects, Storm Tempest, AA Projects Ltd and Southern Green to deliver the scheme.

It is amazing to see from up high, the site's proximity to the coast and Walkworth Castle, and just how well the scheme sits within the local context.

The weather taking a slight turn, the perfect back drop to some of the pristine white render homes. A mixture of different brick types, render and weatherboard cladding materials were chosen across the site and identified in key locations, to respect the local context and provide modern homes.

A quick video showing one of the key focal points within the site; an area of public open space with enhanced drainage and landscaping features. A mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraces houses are fronting onto this area, removing vehicles from these spaces, enhancing opportunities for safe play and use.

A two bedroom house with a view through to the garden from the front door and elevated to sit well within the local context of Amble and existing housing typologies.
