New show home showcases work of renowned interior stylist

June 2015

Story Homes opened the doors of a brand new show home in Appleby in June.

The beautiful show home at the Orchard Place development in the town has been internally designed and dressed by interior designer Suzanne Webster, who counts Next, Harpers Bazaar and Cosmopolitan amongst her clients.

Story Homes’ Sales Manager Hayley Blair has been overseeing the launch of the show home and said: “We are delighted to work with Suzanne again. She has designed many of our show homes, producing work of outstanding quality which really showcases our high specification homes perfectly.


The elegant lounge enjoys garden views creating a light and airy ambience

“We are pleased that we can now show customers a finished home in Appleby and invite them to come along and visit our four-bedroom ‘Sandringham’ show home at Orchard Place.”

Suzanne Webster enjoys a successful relationship with the Cumbrian-based house builder and says: “I always enjoy working on show homes with Story Homes. Each home is different and a challenge: expectations are high, but I enjoy being able to experiment with new ideas and colour schemes.

“I love the fact that visitors get to see my work for real and can become inspired, taking away ideas that they can use in their own homes.”

The ‘Sandringham’ is a stunning four bedroom detached house with integral single/double detached garage boasting superb accommodation over two floors. To the ground floor is a spacious lounge with double doors to the garden, allowing the discerning customer to enjoy their garden all year round.


Practical and glamourous family room

This house offers plenty of space for any size family with an additional family room, a dining room and a kitchen/breakfast room. Suzanne has given the show home a truly sumptuous make over and her colour scheme certainly shows the show home off to dramatic effect.


Spectacular master bedroom with en-suite

There are four bedrooms to the first floor which are elegantly designed to compliment the home. Several of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, highlighting the practical and generous space with has been created.

Orchard Place has already seen nearly a dozen families buy their dream home from the first phase of the site and its appeal is far reaching, with customers moving from far and wide to enjoy the benefits of a Cumbrian lifestyle.
