Fred Story at Shotley Bridge

August 2012

Fred Story at Shotley Bridge to unveil not one, but two stunning new show homes tomorrow on August 23rd 2012. The new shows are located at their executive site in Shotley Bridge with representatives from HCA, Riverside and Durham Council also set to make an appearance.

The award winning Story Homes launched its fantastic new site at Shotley Bridge just over two months ago. ‘The Woodlands’ is an executive development of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties all superbly finished both inside and out, to a very high standard; achieving a Level Four status in the Code for Sustainable Homes.

The 31-acre site next to the new Shotley Bridge Hospital has homes for sale ranging from £219,950 – £339,950. Story Homes is renowned for creating aesthetically pleasing street scenes and for delivering successful community focused developments. The site benefits from being ideally located with god road communications and being located on the eastern outskirts of the town offering stunning views over the Derwent Valley.

Fred Story Homes are known for including many extras and our Shotley Bridge development is no different. Outside the properties are turfed front and rear gardens, patio (paved), block paved driveway and 1.8m high rear garden fence. It also comes with kitchen appliances, integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, fire/fire surround, down lights in kitchen and bathroom and ample electrical sockets all over. Additionally it includes the highest level of sound proofing, photovoltaic roof panels which generate electricity and exceptional thermally efficient build materials resulting in reduced energy bills.

The first show home is a 4-bed detached ‘Wynyard’ which is decorated with a sumptuous palette of greys and stables, complimented by contemporary black furniture; giving an elegant, sophisticated look. It is a superb family home with spacious kitchen/family room, featuring oak unites with a charcoal worktop and French doors leading to the patio and rear garden. Upstairs contains the 4 bedrooms, family bathroom and ensuite shower room too.

The second Shotley Bridge show home is a ‘Doxford’ house type and is also a 4-bedroom home, but with a different layout. The kitchen has a useful utility room and the dining area has double doors leading to the lounge; allowing the whole downstairs to open up into one big space. The house is decorated with neutral, timeless colours where cream hues with a splash of cranberry that marry well with the oak furniture to give a relaxed, easy going feel.
