The prominent site, just off Yarm Road was originally home to a sheltered housing scheme, which was decanted and demolished by Thirteen over five years ago.

We've delivered Trinity View in partnership with Engie who built the properties, supported by funding from Homes England. Other partners involved include P+HS architects and Identity consult.

The development is home to seven bungalows that are all energy efficient and include some integrated kitchen appliances, a wet room, external doors with level access and either a drive or off-street parking. They are all built around a beautiful landscaped courtyard.

Sharon Thomas, Thirteen’s director of new home delivery, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the demand we’ve received for these new homes and we’re proud to have worked with our partners to deliver such a fantastic scheme.

“All seven bungalows have already been snapped up as part of our over 55s Buyin Part with Shared Ownership scheme and we’re looking forward to welcoming the first residents shortly.

“The new bungalows offer lifelong, purpose built, easily adaptable and energy efficient homes for customers and they’ve appealed to those who have been looking to plan for older age or move out of the family home, as it’s too large and expensive to run.

“We really feel that the properties at Trinity View will offer their new residents a home that will allow them to enjoy and get the most out of life.”

Bob Beadle, construction manager at ENGIE, said: “The Trinity View development is an example of how accommodation for over 55s can become homes for life.

"The modern, energy efficient, homes are easily adaptable for the developing needs of residents meaning there is no need for homeowners to have to think of moving away if their requirements change.

“I’m proud to see ENGIE’s work with Thirteen is giving residents across the region the opportunity to live in high-quality accommodation that can help them to remain living independent lives for years to come.”

Helen Fielding, Senior Specialist for Home Ownership and Supply at Homes England added: “Homes England is committed to helping more people access better homes in the areas where they’re most needed.

“We’re pleased to have supported the development at Trinity View which will offer older people in Eaglescliffe purpose-built accommodation close to the heart of their community.”
