Street scene at Waterside in Cottam

We were drawn to the design of the houses, especially from the outside! Story Homes use a mix of materials like stone and brick which made all the difference for us.

The Home Move scheme was great. I didn’t have the hassle of selling my home on my own and there were no estate agent fees to pay either.

Using the scheme saved me the worry just knowing professionals that Story Homes had used before were doing the hard work for me.
