Flagship Chester Gate development set to launch in Sunderland

  • 19th February 2021

The first phase of our eagerly awaited Chester Gate housing development is set to launch in Sunderland this weekend.

The development, which is built on the former Pennywell estate just off Chester Road, will feature a collection our exclusive two, three and four-bedroom properties on the first phase of the new gateway development into the city.

We’re offering a number of our popular house types, as well as two new bespoke house types, the Acer and the Aspen, which will create an impressive frontage running adjacent to Chester Road.

Located just a couple of minutes from the A19 and a ten minute drive from Sunderland city centre, our highly anticipated development will provide modern and spacious living spaces that are perfect for first-time buyers or those who are looking to upgrade their home.

The doors to the Chester Gate sales and marketing suite will open on Saturday 20 February and in line with current Government guidance, anyone that is interested in visiting the development must pre-book an appointment with our sales team.

All of the new homes also come with a two-year Gentoo customer care guarantee and a 10-year NHBC warranty as standard, providing peace of mind to customers who purchase the homes.

Anthony Douglas, Operations Director at Gentoo Homes, said:

“We’re extremely delighted to be launching the highly anticipated Chester Gate development – a site perfectly located at the gateway to Sunderland. This is a extremely important development for the city and a fantastic addition to our portfolio of existing luxury, high-quality developments in Sunderland. We’re extremely pleased with the level of interest we have already received in the development and look forward to welcoming potential customers to the sales and marketing suite.”

Nigel Wilson, Chief Executive Officer at Gentoo Group, added:

“Sunderland has a very ambitious target of building thousands of new homes over years to come and the Chester Gate development will play a vital role in achieving this alongside Gentoo’s already ambitious affordable homes plan. We know the redevelopment of the site is long awaited and we’re delighted with the range of high-quality new homes Gentoo Homes has on offer.”

Gentoo Homes is the private housebuilding arm of Gentoo Group. It is a profit for purpose commercial organisation that builds around 200 homes for sale every year. It plays a critical role in Sunderland by delivering high quality new homes that meet the housing needs of local residents, while generating a financial surplus that is reinvested in Gentoo Group’s provision of new affordable homes in the city.
