Join us at our Home Movers event at Ash Tree Park this weekend

June 2018

Join us as we hold a Home Movers event this weekend on our remaining four homes. If you are looking to move home – perhaps to a new location in the picturesque Cumbrian town of Kendal or a slightly bigger place – but have an existing property to sell, then we can help at our mortgage advice event at Ash Tree Park in Kendal on Saturday 9 June.

The event is open to anyone looking for a new house in the area and aims to show people how a range of schemes can help those who may be stuck in a chain to unlock the door to a brand new Story Home. Financial experts from New Homes Mortgages will be on hand to help buyers through the buying and mortgage process.

Designed to help those who are looking for a new home or are struggling to sell an existing property – we have a range of schemes to help. Through Part Exchange, Story Homes act as a guaranteed buyer so there’s no risk of the sale falling through and no further delays to the house buying process.

Under Part Exchange, we obtain three independent valuations from trusted agents and then agree a price with the homeowner. Not only is all the hassle taken out of selling your own home but there are also no estate agent fees to pay and no risk of broken chains.

Independent financial advisor specialises in new build mortgages and works alongside us to ensure mortgages are progressed as smoothly as possible. They will be on hand to help customers work out their home buying budget and provide approximate mortgage repayment. With so many choices and options for mortgages, it’s important to know exactly what would suit you best to help choose the right property for you, and they are here to help.

Sales manager Clare Wilson said: “We know buying a new home can be a stressful experience, especially if you have a house to sell.

“Using our Part Exchange scheme makes the sales process a lot less stressful, as we will purchase your existing property allowing you to buy your dream home at Ash Tree Park and you don’t have to move until your new Story Home is ready.

“Ash Tree Park is set with views overlooking the Cumbrian countryside. We only have four homes remaining on this popular development. We’ve a range of four-bedroom three-storey homes and look forward to welcoming customers to this event to find out more about buying a new home through part exchange, our popular HOME scheme and also Help to Buy – no appointment is necessary.”

Homes here boast the highest levels of specification in partnership with leading manufacturers including AEG appliances, Porcelanosa tiling and Kelly Hoppen brassware and, as you’d expect from a Story Home, your home is built to our award winning standards.

Buyers are given as much choice as possible when making their home their own. When designing their dream kitchen customers can pick from a range of classic or contemporary units in a range of colours and style options from Nixons kitchens, matched with quality worktops and upstands. Homes come with stainless steel appliances including built-in double oven, five burner gas hob plus integrated appliances including fridge freezer and dishwasher, microwave and washing machine or washer/dryer, plus under unit and plinth lighting which completes the design. Our kitchens deliver quality, practicality and durability alongside outstanding design.

Our luxurious family bathrooms and en-suites are finished with superb detail from spacious walk-in showers with ceiling-mounted shower heads and stylish taps from renowned designer Kelly Hoppen to stylish vanity units with elegant vessel wash basins all are complemented with a range of Porcelanosa tiling for a beautiful finish.

The interior of the homes is finished in jasmine white and perfectly offsets the oak banister rails and oak doors with a choice of stylish door furniture. Our homes radiate light and space, further enhanced by stylish bi-fold doors, bringing the outdoors in and creating a seamless link to your paved patio and turfed gardens.
