COULBY Newham is one of Teesside's modern estates - development here only started about 25 years ago.

It has a good mix of properties. You'll find something for the first time buyer right up to large family homes.

And it's an area that's still developing with new homes continuing to be built.

Prices here have kept pace with the rest of Teesside and there's a good choice for buyers.

The area also boasts good amenities, including the Parkway shopping centre and Rainbow Leisure Centre.

There are also a number of schools close by to cater for all ages.

Stainton is close by, but has more of a village feel, partly because of its layout and rural aspect.

TS8 is still a very popular area and sales do well here.
