It’s hard to imagine a more perfect location in the north-east. Park View lies along the eastern edge of Saltwell Park and just west of the sought-after Low Fell neighbourhood. A selection of magnificent one and two bed apartments and three, four and five bedroom homes, all designed to take maximum advantage of their unique location, the development sensitively blends reclaimed stone features, conservation-quality paving and beautiful landscaping – even the bollards are by the sculptor Anthony Gormley. Park View is destined to become a benchmark for modern, sustainable urban living.
Living in Gateshead
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as be a pleasant place to live.
Within the park, Saltwell Towers is a fantastic mixture of architectural styles with a gothic, fairy-tale feel, housing a cafe, information centre and exhibition space. Recently restored at a cost of £10 million, this is a truly amazing resource to have on the doorstep.
Tyneside has an exceptionally lively entertainment scene, with attractions like The Sage and the Theatre Royal complementing a host of smaller venues, bars, clubs, restaurants and cinema and theatres. The Little Theatre, Gateshead’s home of drama, is just yards from Park View, and the famous Shipley Art Gallery, one of Englands finest contemporary craft collections, is just five minutes walk away.
Education & Health
Ashfield nursery has a seven-acre woodland site around ten minutes walk from Park View, and the choice of primary schools within walking distance includes Kelvin Grove and Corpus Christie. Joseph Swan Academy, recently formed by the merger of two local high school is around a mile away, and the refurbished Gateshead Central Library is just a few minutes from the development. There are several nearby GP practices, including Dr Bryson & Partners at Fell Cottage Surgery, and a dental surgery just across Durham Road.
