Beautiful new homes within easy reach of town and coast
Our stylish new development Aspen Grove, situated southwest of Hartlepool, offers a fantastic collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes. The site is positioned to perfectly complement modern living, with shops and amenities in easy reach, the fantastic seafront, marina and nature reserve a short distance away, and plenty of schools and family-friendly provisions. Also benefitting from excellent transport links and an active local community, this is a great place to call home.
Our new homes here are conveniently situated close to the A689 which is the main route into Hartlepool. It only takes 10 minutes to drive into the town centre and even less to join the A19 at Wolviston. From there Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees are within very easy reach.
Living between the coast and the area's busy towns, opens up plenty of opportunities for work and leisure. It's the perfect balance for family life in this part of County Durham.
Just four miles away from Aspen Grove, Hartlepool features many boutique and high street shops, including a good range in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre.

There's also a wide selection of food outlets, bars and pubs, making it a great place for socialising. For those who like keeping active, there are sports facilities including football pitches, gyms and golf courses in the area surrounding Hartlepool.
When it comes to leisure, Hartlepool has so much to offer. The bustling marina is a great place for a stroll, and is also home to the Museum of Hartlepool and the National Museum of the Royal Navy with its superb Hartlepool Maritime Experience. You can follow the coastal path along the seafront to Seaton Carew, a charming seaside resort 3.2 miles from Aspen Grove. Here there's a wide sandy beach plus a play area, crazy golf and a golf course. Continue two miles south and you'll arrive at Teesmouth National Nature Reserve, a peaceful wetlands reserve with panoramic views and plenty of wildlife.
