Perched on the south bank of the Tyne, and once a proud ship building community, the characterful Newcastle suburb of Hebburn has a proud history of making Tyneside great. The suburb, which is nestled between Jarrow and Bill Quay, is just seven miles from the City Centre and benefits from excellent transport links – it’s just seven stops to Central Station on the Metro – good schools and great riverside and park walks.

Close to your new build house, Hebburn Central is a stylish new community hub offering a gym, fitness classes, two swimming pools and a new library - as well as a range of meeting rooms and a café for the whole community to share and enjoy. Aside from a close community, your new build home in Hebburn has a good mix of shops lining the bustling high street, from your go-to supermarkets to quirky little independent stores. And if you're up for a bit of a browse, the Mountbatten Shopping Centre nearby has big name brands, cafes and bars, all under one roof.
