Why Buy New

There’s nothing quite like buying a new home

It is one of the biggest and most exciting purchases you’re ever likely to make. There are a number of advantages to buying a new build home compared to an older home – and even more reasons to choose a Story home.

Modern Layouts

With well proportioned layouts, our homes give you and your family the space and flexibility to do more together. Whether it’s open-plan living spanning the rear of the property, or formal lounges for reflection and relaxation, a Story home is designed for modern life.

Brand New

There’s nothing quite like moving into a brand new home; fresh, clean and full of your own personality thanks to your unique choice of fixtures and fittings.

Energy Efficient

We are committed to reducing energy, water and waste in the homes we build, on our construction sites and in our offices.


Support and Guidance

Buying a new home can be the most exciting time of your life, but it can also be testing, with decisions to make and paperwork to complete. Our dedicated and experienced teams are here to support and guide you, every step of the way.


Cost Savings

With a high specification included as standard in a Story home, you can expect low maintenance costs, fewer repairs, lower fuel bills and there’s no renovation required.


Community Living

We build our homes in the best locations, because when you choose a Story home, you are buying more than just a house. You will become part of a new, growing community, in a place you can feel at home for years to come.
