D’urton Manor opens its marketing suite to a roaring success

October 2016

We have started work on our new development at Eastway in Preston, with nine new homes already reserved.

D’Urton Manor is the ninth development launched by Story Homes in the North West and the marketing suite will open at Eastway on Saturday 5 November. The collection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes offer up to 2,671 square feet of living space and will be finished to the house builder’s high quality specification.


The development was highly anticipated with more than 350 potential customers having registered their interest prior to the launch. Six properties were reserved within the first month.

Sales Manager Clare Wilson, said: “This is a flagship development for Story Homes in the North West. We believe the difference is in the detail and our offer is different to that of other developers in the area. We believe our product brings something new to Preston but will be in keeping with the local area.

“The 300 family homes, which includes 45 affordable homes is a key development in the area. The development will also provide shops, a community space and a care facility. It is situated in a great location on the edge of the city and close to the M6 and M55 so is perfect for commuting.

“We are renowned for our striking and unique street scenes and our development will complement the existing area. Our D’Urton Manor marketing suite is now located on Eastway and our three new show homes will open early in 2017.

“Careful consideration has been given to the diverse range of house types which have been designed to meet the needs of modern living. We’re looking forward to meeting our customers and helping them to secure their dream home.”

Our houses include French doors leading out to the rear turfed garden, double ovens, gas hob, integrated appliances including fridge/freezer and dishwasher in the kitchen, as well overhead showers and extensive porcelenosa tiling in the bathrooms and en-suites. Each home also comes with a fully turfed front and rear garden and block paved driveway as standard (specification is plot specific – please see the sales executive for further details).

Preston couple Ian and Claire Barker were the first customers to buy at D’Urton Manor, at Story Homes’ exclusive hotel launch recently. The couple live around the corner, in a 3-bedroom semi-detached home, and had been waiting for the launch event. They reserved a 4-bedroom detached Salisbury and are looking forward to moving in 2017.

Ian said: “We love the unique design and look that Story Homes brings to a development using different materials, brickwork and styles to really make each house stand out. We are future proofing our life and looking for a larger property.

“The Salisbury is perfect for us offering more room for our growing family. We love the open-plan kitchen, dining and family area which covers the rear of the house, with French doors leading out to the garden. This gives our house the wow factor and will definitely be the heart of our home.”

Several incentives are available such as our popular Home Scheme or Part Exchange which is available on selected plots. Or the government’s Help to Buy scheme which allows customers to buy a new build home with only a 5% deposit.

D’Urton Manor is located on the north side of Preston and is one of the eleven key sites that has been identified as part of the 10 year City Deal signed by Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire Councils.

We currently have ten developments across Lancashire, Wyre and Cumbria, with a number of sites due to open in 2017.

For more information, please call in and speak to Tom who is available Thursday to Monday from 10.30am to 5.30pm, and is located on Eastway, Preston, PR3 5JE. Alternatively see our website for further details.
