Story Homes expands in South Lakes with key development in Kendal

September 2020

We are pleased to announce that work has started on site at our latest housing development in Endmoor, Kendal, named ‘Fellside Manor’.

The development, which is located immediately to the north of Endmoor off Sycamore Close, will comprise of 106 high quality two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, 35% of which will be delivered as affordable homes for local people.

We are currently in the first phase of site setup, which includes laying down the infrastructure, roads and sewers. The first homes at the development are set to be released in winter, with the show homes anticipated to be open in spring 2021.

Paul Fleet, Managing Director for Story Homes NW, commented: “The past few months have been challenging for those within the construction industry.

“We are seeing signs of recovery – our existing sites are performing well, our subcontractors are delivering and our sales rate is consistent which is why we are able to restart our build programmes in South Lakes at a quicker pace than we hoped.

“We are committed to giving more people across the county access to high quality homes. This development will not only improve choice across the local housing market but will also provide the much needed kickstart to the local economy that is required following the pandemic – sustaining jobs for subcontractors and supporting local businesses and supply chains.”

As part of the new development, Story Homes will make a number of contributions to the local community in Endmoor, and has pledged over £995,000 to the local area, including:

  • A community infrastructure levy contribution of approximately £600,000 to South Lakeland District Council. These funds are to be spent on local infrastructure and other projects in South Lakes
  • A contribution of approximately £288,000 towards the provision of extra school places in Endmoor
  • A contribution of £71,250 for fund secondary school transport for residents of Fellside Manor
  • A contribution of £36,000 to be paid to South Lakeland District Council towards improvements to existing play equipment at Endmoor Recreation Ground

With well-proportioned layouts, the homes at Fellside Manor will allow modern, open-plan living, offering lots of space inside and out. Each home will have a high specification throughout that includes a fully integrated kitchen and many other features as standard; such as fencing, turf, patios and bi-fold doors to name a few. The beautiful exteriors will incorporate stone and render, making the street scenes of the development unique.

Located close to the market town of Kendal, Fellside Manor is surrounded by the beautiful scenery both of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The development also has excellent transport links – it is close to the M6 motorway, and Kendal train station is just a short drive away.
