Clifton proves popular with buyers as two Cumbrian sites sell out fast!

August 2013

Two of Story Homes most popular ever developments in Cumbria are almost sold out, a year ahead of schedule. Buyers have obviously fallen in love with ‘Clifton’ as both Clifton Hill Gardens in Clifton near Penrith and Mabel Wood at Great Clifton, Workington, have just a handful of properties left.

Now is your last chance to buy a beautiful Story Home at either of these sites. With demand and interest still high, the sites are expected to sell out in just weeks. Extra resources including local staff and sub contractors have already been employed to help complete the project ahead of schedule, ensuring the quality is in keeping with Story Homes reputation for excellence.great-clifton-homes

Clifton Hill Gardens is a development of just 48 properties, located in the ever popular village of Clifton, near Penrith. Story Homes started work on the site in June 2012 and the development will be completed by March 2014, a whole year earlier than expected. High demand for the properties in Clifton has seen the houses snapped up long before expected, with buyers even reserving the stunning Cedar show home weeks ago, just to ensure they didn’t miss out on the chance to live in their dream home at Clifton Hill Gardens.

Mabel Wood is a development of 46 properties in the village of Great Clifton. This is Story Homes’ first development close to the communities of Workington and has proved particularly popular with buyers looking for a quieter village life. Building work started in mid 2012 with properties released for sale from Autumn 2012. The popularity of the site has taken everybody by surprise, and the whole site is due to be completed by January 2014. Buyers have cited the location of the development on the edge of the village, the beautiful tree lined approach, easy access to the A66 and A595 and the views across the fells as the reasons for buying at Mabel Wood. Buyers have also claimed to be delighted with the high quality and specification of a Story Homes house and many have been waiting for a development of this quality near Workington for years.

The properties remaining at Clifton Hill Gardens are:

Plots 19 and 37 ‘The Hornbeam’ £249,950 – A four bedroom detached double fronted property. Plot 19 features a traditional stone fronted finish and plot 37 benefits from a large garden. Both houses have a breakfasting kitchen as well as a separate dining room.

Plot 28 ‘The Ash’ £276,950 – Stone fronted detached four bedroom property with beautiful views of local fells. This house also has a double aspect lounge and a great sized kitchen dining room.

Plot 29 ‘The Cypress’ £271,950 – A four bedroom detached property with feature entrance hall and a large private garden. The Cypress has fantastic French doors with extra glazed side panels, giving the kitchen dining room a spacious look and feel.

Plot 48 ‘The Aspen’ £195,950 – The last three bedroom property on the site, also featuring a south facing garden. The Aspen has a spacious kitchen dining room with French doors and also has an en suite to the master bedroom.
