Homes are snapped up as first houses in Wrea Green are released

Our eagerly awaited  Willows Edge development of exclusive new homes launched on Thursday 16 February at Ribby Hall Village.

Home buyers queued at Ribby Hall Village before the launch opened to get the first pick of the homes on offer. Buyers secured their dream homes and house hunters, who travelled from across the North West, came along to view our range of properties and find out more about our prestige specification.

More than 100 people attended the launch and Anthony Driver was the first person to reserve a home off-plan celebrating with champagne and flowers at the launch event with his daughter Samantha.

Anthony has family connections in Wrea Green and used to live locally before relocating to Kent 20 years ago with his family. Anthony travelled up to Lancashire on the morning of the launch event to secure his dream 4-bedroom detached dormer bungalow after having had his eye on the development for some time.

“I‘m relocating back to the North West with my job and I am looking forward to coming back home to live in Lancashire. It’s always been our plan to move back to the area as we have family and friends still living in Wrea Green and it’s a great village to eventually retire in.

“I have been looking at Story Homes for a while originally looking at their development in Clitheroe. I saw on their website Willows Edge was coming soon and this is a better location for me. The house offers me everything I want – it’s the right size for me and the family dog and when my children and grandchildren visit there is space for them to stay over and call home.

“I love the design of the home both inside and out – there is so much attention to detail that goes in to the homes. I am really impressed by the finish in the house and all the extra touches that come as standard – summer will be lovely with the bi-folding doors leading out to the garden from both the lounge and kitchen/dining area.”

Anthony’s daughter Samantha who lives in Preston said “Dad has such fond memories of Wrea Green and especially the Green and The Grapes pub. It’s such a great location for Dad to settle down in and there’s plenty of space for myself and the rest of my family to stay over and have somewhere to still call home.”

Finished to our Prestige specification, most properties will include bi-fold doors, a double oven, five-burner gas hob, dishwasher, double-ended baths and extensive Porcelanosa tiling in bathrooms and en-suites. Each home also comes with a fully turfed front and rear garden, and block paved driveway.

Sales manager Richard Kitchen, who was on hand to congratulate Anthony on his purchase said: “We are very pleased to launch Willows Edge and see so many people turn up to our event. The development is found in an enviable location and it’s fantastic to bring these new homes to buyers in Wrea Green who are looking for a lifestyle as well as a home.

“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to secure a new home for Anthony – the Richmond is a superb home offering him the space he is looking for. Willows Edge has 18 different house types to choose from and we are launching our Prestige specification in Lancashire at this development.”

“The collection of homes has been highly anticipated, with more than 300 people who have already registered their interest. With the first houses expected to be available to move in at the end of the year, we are anticipating a high demand for released properties following the launch.

Story Homes is launching their prestige specification in their range of homes at Willows Edge including high quality high specification kitchens by Symphony, ‘A’ rated fully integrated appliances, our luxurious bathrooms and en-suites are beautifully finished with the highest attention to detail. We also have an exclusive range of Laura Ashley kitchens which are customers can upgrade to!”
