Sea views and hidden coves - on demand
The real beauty of a home in Rivers Edge is knowing that you can leave the hustle and bustle of modern life behind, whenever you choose. From watching the ebb and flow of the river outside your window, and taking in panoramic views from Cleadon Hills, to exploring the scenic clifftop paths and golden sands of nearby Sandhaven beach, nature is never far away.
Wall-to-wall greenery and activity
If you love the great outdoors, you’ll also want to take advantage of the green spaces all around you. Kids will want to make a beeline for Rivers Edge’ own play park. Or, the free fitness trail and wide-open spaces of nearby North Marine Park.
Hit the surf at Sandhaven, walk the South Tyneside coast path or cycle the Keel Line Trail from Sunderland to home.
Alternatively, for a more laid-back weekend, take a walk to South Marine Park, where you can ride on the miniature railway, row across the boating lake, grab a cappuccino in the café or get inspired on the art trail.
Our sales lines are open 7am to 9pm, 7 days a week (including bank holidays).
