A North East property development company has acquired a sister site as it expands. Altoria Development, based in Morpeth, has announced that it is expanding into a second site, based in Stannington. Altoria was established in 2014 by husband and wife team Alan and Victoria Fleming, with an aim to produce bespoke bungalows.   Its first development, on Furrow Road, was launched in 2016. The first phase of 8 detached bungalows was sold off-plan, followed in 2018 by a further six.  The new site, Ridge Grove, will provide an exclusive development of eight detached bungalows, all of which will provide the opportunity for each buyer to customise their individual home. 
Vicky Fleming, co-director of Altoria commented: "We are very proud of what we have achieved at Furrow Grove and we are looking forward to continuing this success over the      road." Alan Fleming, also co-director of Altoria commented: "Our aim is to provide a luxurious home with high specification that comes included in the sale price." There is a very    high demand for this type of property within the local area."  Construction on site at Ridge Grove will commence in the coming months, with properties anticipated for completion towards the end of 2020.


Five years after launching a property development company specialising exclusively in building outstanding new bungalows, Morpeth-based husband and wife team Alan and Victoria Fleming are about to expand their portfolio of bespoke bungalows in Blyth.
Alan and Victoria’s business, Altoria Development, saw their first development form at Furrow Grove in Stannington which took the market by storm.  The quality and high specification ensured that all fourteen bungalows sold off-plan.  Some would say quite an achievement for first-time developers!  They are looking to match that success once more with their latest development named Oakfield Grove, marketed as an intimate development of four detached bungalows nestled into a cosy cul-de-sac off Inglewood Close in Chase Farm.
Alan said “we are very much looking forward to bringing our product to Blyth.  There is a clear demand for bungalows throughout Northumberland and we pride ourselves in the high-quality finish each home offers.  Remarkably before a spade was placed into the ground we have had numerous enquiries about this development”.
Altoria Development say their niche which sets them poles apart from other developers is their ability to offer a bespoke service that allows prospective purchasers to alter internal layouts and choose from a wide range of internal fittings to provide a new home that is fit for purpose.   Oakfield Grove will be approached via a private roadway off Inglewood Close.  Each home will be finished in a rustic red brick and a grey roof tile to compliment the nearby surroundings.   At approximately 982 square feet, each property will include two double sized bedrooms, family bathroom, kitchen, large lounge with French doors overlooking a private rear garden.  Hallway cupboard and integrated garage with electric door.
Victoria said “as with all of our developments we have kept the specification high and everything is included within the sale price so there are no hidden extras”.   Oakfield Grove includes as standard: a range of laminate worktops and co-ordinated cabinetry in a choice of colour, integrated Bosch appliances to include a tallboy fridge and freezer, induction hob, oven and extractor.   Choice of internal white door and door handle, choice of tiling to family bathroom, range of flooring included throughout the property and choice of electrical layout throughout.  Modern combination boiler with radiator system, turfed front and rear gardens and integrated single garage with electric door.  The couple saw construction commence in February and are aiming for an end of summer 2020 completion date which will see the first set of bungalow keys handed over.
Victoria added “completion day is the best part of my job.  I work directly with each buyer to design their perfect new home from internal finishes to landscaping.  So, when completion day arrives I’m privileged to walk the new homeowner through their bungalow, seeing their ideas become a reality.  It’s a very proud moment for all of the team.”   For a sales brochure or to request a site viewing please contact Altoria Development on 01670 432603 or alternatively visit the websitewww.altoriadevelopment.co.uk.


Two local businesses are joining forces to make sure occupants of a housing development on the outskirts of Morpeth, enjoy the warmest of welcomes when they move into their new homes.  Husband and wife team Alan and Victoria Fleming have started work on the construction of what will be a private, gated development of eight exceptional bungalows at Stannington Station, the first of which will be ready for occupation next spring.   And waiting to greet the new home owners when they move in, will be a luxury hamper of local goodies from the nearby award-winning Moor House Farm Shop owned and run by Ian and Victoria Byatt.   

Their family which has farmed in the area for generations, owns two mixed arable farms that rear the beef, pork and lamb sold in the farm shop along with a vast selection of top quality home-grown, home-made and locally sourced produce.  ​As Ian said: “We are delighted to be working with another local company and are looking forward to taking this opportunity to introduce ourselves to our new neighbours when they move into their Altoria homes.”   The Ridge Grove bungalows will be the second Altoria development at Stannington Station following on from Alan and Victoria’s first successful venture into house building at Furrow Grove, directly opposite the farm shop.

​The properties will be built to a high specification with underfloor heating throughout, bespoke kitchens with a choice of stone worktops and integrated appliances, internal oak doors, three double bedrooms with a Villeroy and Boch bathroom and ensuite furniture.  Flooring through the properties, double garages and landscaping are all included in the initial purchase price. In between the Stannington developments, Altoria built a further four bungalows at Blyth.   “We are creating a thriving community at Stannington where we are keen to help and sustain local business and services, so we were delighted when Ian and Victoria Byatt agreed to supply us with hampers to present to our new home owners,” said Victoria Fleming.   “The farm shop is a great asset to the local area, stocking so much home-made or made-in-Northumberland, produce, and has already proved so popular with our home-owners living in our first Stannington development.”

New build development company, Altoria Development, has expanded its portfolio of bespoke bungalows with assistance from St James’ Square law firm.  The latest construction work took place at Furrow Grove in Stannington, Northumberland. It comprises a range of detached luxury bungalows, all built to a high specification.  The Furrow Grove project started in 2016, with eight bungalows each designed to client’s tastes with cathedral windows and vaulted ceilings.  In February 2018, a further six bungalows were added to the development due to high demand.  St James’ Square partner and head of real estate, Martin Wilson, advised the development company for the duration of the project.  He said: “It’s been a delight to work with the team at Altoria Development, advising them throughout the process of buying, developing and selling these fourteen exclusive bungalows.  “It was no surprise how rapidly the bungalows in the first phase sold due to their individual unique designs. The success quickly led to the second phase of development and we’re pleased to have recently completed on the sale of the final bungalow.”

Alan and Victoria Fleming established Altoria Development in 2014 and specialise in bespoke, fully adaptable, new build bungalows.  Alan commented: “The team at St James’ Square are experts in their field, and we wouldn’t look any further for quality legal advice.  “Not only have the team managed all of the plot sales, they offered excellent guidance when complexities with the development arose.”  The next project for Altoria is a development of four detached bungalows in Blyth.
Victoria added: “We’re so pleased to be working closely again with Martin and the team on our next project in the Chase Farm area of Blyth. The exclusive two-bedroom bungalows will be released for sale later this year.”​

THE BUNGAlow developer


Altoria Development’s first project took them to Furrow Grove, Stannington Station to develop a disused nursery  site into an executive estate of eight detached bungalows.  The specification was high and the demand was phenomenal with all eight bought off-plan and now occupied.   In February 2018 planning permission was granted for a further six bungalows on the southern edge of Furrow Grove.  Construction commenced two months later with an upgraded specification yet still offering a bespoke build with an endless amount of choices for the buyer.  Four of the ‘new’ six are now complete and occupied with the remaining two currently under construction and expected to be ready by spring 2019. 
The bungalows have an exceptional specification included as standard in the sales price meaning that there are no hidden extras!  Externally each bungalow is brick built with delicate artstone quoins and pillars to the entrance porch.  Walking through the front door and into the vestibule there is a cloak cupboard with ample storage space.  The glazed internal oak doors invite you into the spacious hallway  with light exuding from the lounge.  The lounge itself has a vaulted ceiling and cathedral style window with French doors leading out to the south facing garden.   The large kitchen has an island with sink and choice of cupboards.  The worktops are granite and there are five integrated NEFF appliances included - fridge, freezer, dishwasher, over and induction hob. 
In addition, there is also a separate utility room and private office. There are three double bedrooms with an en-suite to the master.   The en-suite consists of a walk-in shower, choice of cabinetry, basin and WC.

The room is also fully tiled. All the bungalows have underfloor heating with zone control throughout and luxury flooring is included in a range of styles and sizes.  The gardens are fully turfed with landscaping and the remaining bungalows have a double garage with an electric garage door.  Plot 14 also comes with private electric gates! Furthermore, each new home is sold  with a 10 year structural warranty and  is Freehold.  The two remaining plots can be purchased and include all the above for £420,000 (plot 13) and £440,000 (plot 14).
