Work has now officially started on the construction of 16 luxury 4 & 5 bedroom homes in Cleadon, South Tyneside.

Social business, Gentoo is developing the site which sits on the land once occupied by Oakleigh Gardens School.  The development has been eagerly awaited since Gentoo purchased the land from South Tyneside Council last October.

The start on site was officially marked with a sod-cutting by local Councillors, Margaret Meling and Joan Atkinson who showed their support for the development: 

Councillor Meling said: “This prestigious new development is a welcome addition to the range of quality homes in Cleadon Village. Even viewing the proposals from the plan the 16 homes look fantastic and are set in a lovely location. I look forward to the completion of the development and to welcoming the new residents.”

Phase 1, a selection of 6 homes, one of each house type which will be built on the site, are now release for sale. 

Hawksley Rise was created with something that Gentoo call the ‘art of living’ in mind.  They understand that a home is not just about the house that you live in, but the lifestyle it provides. 

Ian Porter, Executive Director of Property at Gentoo explains:

“Everyone has different priorities - whether it’s the perfect location; the quality build; bespoke fixtures and fittings; the extra space that you need; or somewhere where your children can grow up - we endeavour to offer a home that exceeds your needs and achieves your  ‘art of living’.

“We’re really proud of Hawksley Rise and we know that it is something really special due to the exceptionally high interest that we’ve had so far - before we’ve even launched the development.  It ticks all of the boxes - spacious, high quality luxurious homes in the ideal place, close to local schools, transport links and a selection of local amenities.

“These homes won’t be around for long, so if you’re interested, pop along to our open event to find out more.”

The first homes at the development located just off the leafy Sunniside Lane, are due for completion towards the end of the year.
