Design excellence award for outstanding development
The first development in the North East to win the coveted Built for Life award for design excellence, La Sagesse by David Wilson Homes is a truly outstanding collection of 48 bespoke homes in Jesmond, Tyne & Wear.
The development will include renovated and newly built apartments, four-storey townhouses, refurbished and new lodges, and luxurious detached homes.
In addition to the one and two bedroom apartments, properties range in size from two to three, five and seven bedroom homes – all located in the North East’s premier residential location, minutes from central Newcastle.
La Sagesse subtly combines contemporary style with traditional grandeur. From the sophisticated apartment blocks to the extraordinary detached homes, brick, render, glass, reclaimed stone and timber are beautifully combined to create unique exteriors. Interiors are just as impressive, with German-made kitchens, coffered ceilings, timber staircases and specially designed bathrooms.
Properties at La Sagesse include the Carham, which combines both space and luxury, including a terrace to the front accessed from the well-proportioned lounge, plus bi-fold doors leading from the kitchen onto the rear garden. The Carham is filled with light and offers a host of elegant living spaces across the ground floor. The first floor includes a charming master suite which is one of the five bedrooms, plus an additional bedroom on the second floor.
Another impressive home, Choristers B has open-plan living at its heart. It features a spacious family room and dining kitchen with separate utility, plus a beautiful living area with bi-fold doors that lead to the rear garden. Upstairs, there is a family bathroom, double bedroom and master bedroom with en suite.
Melrose House A1 is a delightful ground floor apartment offering space and style. The open-plan living area features a spacious lounge, dining area and kitchen finished with sleek German-made units. The master bedroom is complete with wardrobes and an en suite, plus French doors that lead to a charming private terrace. The property also includes a second bedroom and stylish family bathroom.
