Show home opening at The Sycamores attracts more than 100 visitors at its launch weekend

January 2019

Our first show complex in Blackburn was officially opened by the Mayor of Blackburn with Darwen, Cllr Pat McFall, with the launch event attracting more than 100 visitors through the doors.

The 205-home development, The Sycamores, is located off Gib Lane and features a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes.

We invited the Mayor to perform a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the show complex at The Sycamores VIP launch event. The complex showcases three of our most popular homes – the five-bedroom detached ‘Mayfair’, the four-bedroom ‘Marlow’ and the four-bedroom detached “Wellington”, giving visitors an insight into the luxury lifestyle that a Story Home can provide.

The Mayfair is a beautiful house and the interior design of silvery blues gives a feeling of tranquillity throughout the house enhancing its features to set it above the rest. The show home displays the superior build quality and the features that come as part of our specification. Abode, the company commissioned for the interior design of the show homes took inspiration from elements around the local area to style the property.

This impressive home has the wow factor as soon as you open the door with the light and airy hall leading to the kitchen, dining and family area with its high end stylish kitchen from Nixons with integrated “A” rated appliances. The kitchen has been designed with family life and entertaining in mind – with full-height contemporary units using accent colours and contrasting features, an island with hob and breakfast bar. The design includes a partition in the dining area to zone a family area off as well as bi-folding doors to open the space up in to the garden – it really is the heart of the home and the perfect place to sit back and relax with the family or entertain with friends.

The design continues throughout the house and includes key pieces such as the media unit in the spacious lounge which also includes bi-folding doors which also open up to the rear garden area. Upstairs there are five spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom and bedroom two both come with boutique style en-suites including wall hung vanity basin units and a range of Porcelanosa tiling. The master bedroom features a show stopping floor to ceiling headboard which encapsulates the design flowing throughout the house. The children’s bedrooms have been brought to life – one is space themed with bespoke wallpaper of the moon and stars and it’s very own NASA space station; whilst another is Circus themed with beautiful feature wallpaper complete with its very own circus tent!

Speaking after officially opening the five-bedroom detached Mayfair show home, the Mayor said: “I was pleased to open the show home at The Sycamores development, and see first-hand how the homes look. It was a great opportunity to meet their team and customers, and find out more about the homes.”

We have seen strong sales at The Sycamores since the launch of its first phase in 2018, with significant uptake of the high specification homes in recent months.

Joanne and Daniel McKinlay attended the opening event, having already reserved a four-bedroom detached Warwick at The Sycamores. Joanne said: “We secured our home off-plan at the sales launch last year. It is great to see the development come to life with the impressive streetscene as you enter the development, the beautiful show complex and the views of the rolling countryside from the homes.

“We’ve travelled around Story Homes developments in the North West and Cumbria to view their homes and the quality really does stand out. It has been brilliant to see the show complex to give us an idea of how our home will look – giving us some interior design inspiration too. We absolutely love the design of the homes – it’s very contemporary and the design throughout each home is completely different, giving a good idea of what can be done.”

“We’re excited to move into our family home and making it our own. The Warwick really has the wow factor from opening the door with a large gallery hallway. The heart of the home will be the kitchen, dining and family room with bi-folding doors, which dominates the rear of the house and leads out to the garden. The perfect space for family time and entertaining.”

Richard Kitson, Head of Sales, said: “It was great to welcome our customers to our latest development in Lancashire and showcase our homes and the high specification which comes as standard. We’ve received a lot of interest in The Sycamores and have released new plots to meet demand.

“The homes at The Sycamores development have layouts to suit family and 21st century living incorporating a blend of different finishes. There is a rural feel as you arrive into the heart of the development, along with charming landscaped areas this development will be perfect for leisurely walks.

“Each home is finished to the highest specification, including features such as designer fitted kitchens from Nixons with AEG integrate appliances, Porcelanosa tiling and oak banisters with painted spindles.”

Located on the outskirts of Blackburn, The Sycamores overlooks picturesque countryside allowing residents to enjoy the benefits of village life whilst being within commutable distance to the city centre.

A range of four-bedroom homes are now available at The Sycamores starting from £267,995.
