A story of space and style as Oakland Park comes to Morpeth

November 2016

Our Oakland Park development features a collection of just 39 homes which offer the highest specification internally and externally.

The range of eight new four and five bedroom house types have been designed exclusively for the development and will be the first in our 29 year history to be built to the new Signature specification.

On the exterior of the homes a mix of contrasting bricks, brick bands, tile hangings and timber detail will create attractive street scenes for residents. Most of the properties feature large bay windows as well as cream doors, large garages and block-paved driveways.

Internally, each home has been designed to offer light and spacious living space, with versatile rooms which can be utilised by families.

In line with the Signature range, the internal specification will include features such as electric garage doors, inglenook fireplaces and Laura Ashley kitchens as standard. Buyers will be able to choose between a range of modern and traditional kitchen layouts, which will include a range of high quality fully integrated appliances.

Extensive Porcelenosa tiling, double-ended baths, overhead showers and fitted vanity units complete the bathrooms and en-suites, while large bi-fold doors provide a social environment to entertain, leading onto paved patio areas and large fully turfed gardens.

Anita Onal, Story Homes sales manager in the North East, said: “The launch of Oakland Park in Morpeth is a significant step for Story Homes – not just in the North East but company-wide. Already well-known for our high specification homes, the Signature range goes one step further to offer customers a very superior finish.

“Our preview event last month was incredibly popular, with a huge amount of interest from customers who had been waiting for the development to launch. We now already have six of the plots secured with early bird reservations ahead of the full sales launch in January. It looks set to be in very high demand.”

The sales centre is expected to open in early 2017, with the show home opening in spring next year.

Identified by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in Britain, Morpeth combines countryside-living with a range of shopping and dining experiences. The centre of the market town is home to the famous Rutherfords department store and the newer Sanderson Arcade which mixes specialist boutiques with high street stores such as Hobbs and Laura Ashley. For food lovers, there is a range of independent tearooms and cafes, bistros and restaurants including the popular Bar Luga and more traditional pubs.

Anita continued: “The location of the development is fantastic. Situated up a quiet lane at the top of Potters Bank, the development will have minimal passing traffic and offer all the benefits of semi-rural living. However residents will benefit from excellent transport links with the A1 just a two minute drive away and the town centre of Morpeth easily accessible by foot.

The first homes which will be ready to move into are a five-bed Belfry and a four-bed Sandhills. The Belfry has a large kitchen / dining room, a separate formal dining room, living room with inglenook fireplace and also a separate living or family room.

Anita said: “The well-proportioned room sizes mean that the ground floor living spaces in all of the properties are really versatile. One of my favourite house types is the Sandhills which features a large kitchen and family room with bi-fold doors, separate formal dining room also with bi-fold doors, a formal lounge with inglenook fireplace and an additional reception room which can be utilised in many ways such as a study, snug or playroom.

“These are really beautiful homes which offer a huge range of lifestyle benefits for buyers.”
