New show home now open at Whins Farm Close, High Harrington

May 2014

Story Homes’ stunning development in High Harrington has just released its eagerly awaited new show home.

Set on the edge of this lovely village, Whins Farm Close brings to the market a collection of beautiful new properties; elegantly finished with natural stone, brick and render. The 3 and 4 bedroom homes have been designed in ten different styles and layouts; from bungalows to semi-detached and detached houses.

Whins Farm Close Show Home

Double Aspect Living Room

The show home, which is now open, is one of Story Homes’ high quality and high specification “Arundel” type houses. This fantastic 4 bedroom detached property has been designed with the buyer in mind and gives rural family living a modern, vibrant vibe. As soon as you walk through the front door the hallway is filled with natural light giving it that homely feel. The continuing colour scheme throughout the property features teals, blues and greens which bring a fresh spring look.

Story Homes is renowned for including many “extras” as standard and properties at Whins Farm Close is no exception. When inside the ‘Arundel’ kitchen, you will have the opportunity to see many of these extra’s such as dishwasher, fridge/freezer and stainless steel double oven.

The spacious, double aspect living room is filled with natural light, which shines through the French patio doors, and with feature fireplace and bay window, makes for a perfect family room.

The first floor comprises four bedrooms, again continuing the fresh spring style featured throughout the house. The master bedroom offers a relaxing retreat and comes complete with an en suite shower room. Two of the other bedrooms have been furnished with double beds and all rooms have ample sockets for keeping all those games and gadgets fully charged. The family bathroom has a grey and black modern look to it and comes with a separate shower and bath.


Exterior of the new ‘Arundel’ show home

Outside, the property has turfed front and rear gardens, a paved patio, block paved driveway and a detached garage. The show home has been designed by Dickinsons Furnishers who also supplied the soft furnishings with Vasey’s of Carlisle providing the stunning range of contemporary furniture and accessories.

Louise McGuckin, Sales director at Story Homes said “We are delighted to be bringing this fantastic development to High Harrington. It’s a perfect location for these high specification houses and demand has already been high with many visitors coming to the exclusive show home opening last weekend.”

“The show home itself looks stunning and ticks all the boxes you would expect of a signature Story Homes property. The development will also have an equipped play space, a public footpath linking to an existing footpath network, and access from the main road.”

“We are delighted to be able to offer customers this opportunity to take a look around our show home. We have another fantastic development at Cairns Chase in Stainburn, which will also have a show home opening in June.”

And if you’ve got a 5% deposit then you could be moving into your dream new build sooner than you think with the Government’s ‘Help to Buy’ scheme. With buyers nationally struggling to pull together large deposits, the Government is offering some safe options to support anybody looking at new build homes. Importantly, the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme still lets the buyer own 100% of their home. It isn’t just aimed at first time buyers however, and a number of Story Homes’ customers have already made purchases through the scheme.

The show home at Whins Farm Close is now open to the public Thursday – Monday from 10.30am – 4.30pm. For more information about the development click here.
