With a great choice of different property types, Byker has something for everyone. There are smaller apartments suitable for single people or couples which are within walking distance of the City, universities and colleges, as well as spacious two, three and four bedroom family homes. We also have two sheltered houses schemes on the Estate which have recently undergone major refurbishment including extensive safety modifications making them two of the best in the City.
Properties in Byker offer lots of outdoor space where you can sit outside to meet with your neighbours or let the kids out to play. The Estate was designed and built to tie in with the landscape, so many properties have great views of the river and are south/south west facing so get lots of sunshine. We are currently working with residents on a £4 million environmental project which will make Byker even better.
Byker has a very diverse community. It’s a community which has a rich ethnic mix, which makes it a special place to be. In 2018 we won the Academy of Urbanism “Great Neighbourhood” award in the UK and Ireland and in 2019 were voted 24th best landlord in the UK and Ireland by Housing 24.
