St Andrew’s View is alive with community spirit

St Andrew’s View is a development of 69 Story homes located in the beautiful village of Thursby.

With almost all of the homes at St Andrew’s View now sold, the development has the strong sense of community often associated with small villages and hamlets. The development offers the perfect opportunity to embrace village life, whilst having the benefit of being located only 7 miles from Carlisle city centre.

Whether it’s a retired couple looking to downsize, a growing family or a young professional looking for their first home, St Andrew’s View offers something for everyone. Shaun Robins recently moved into his four-bedroom detached ‘Wellington’ house type at St Andrew’s View with his wife and two children. He said:

“We are in love with the development itself, with its block paved roads, plus there will be a nice grassed area with trees opposite us once it’s finished. It is also refreshing to hear the sound of church bells ringing, as opposed to police / ambulance sirens which is what we heard when we lived in Carlisle city centre – it’s the little things that make a big difference.”

Car sales support manager Rachel Seal her husband Shaun and her 15-year-old daughter Olivia moved into their new-build home at St Andrew’s View at the end of 2017. Rachel had lived in Carlisle her whole life, but the family was keen to lay down roots out of the city after being inspired by other family members who made the move to village life. Rachel explained:

“I’ve lived in Carlisle all my life, but we’ve always had our sights set on Thursby as it’s just so idyllic, but close enough to the town centre so that all amenities are easily accessible. We began looking at options in the autumn, and as my parents already live in a Story Home and I’ve admired the quality of the build and finishing touches, we approached Story Homes to see what they could offer.”

Kenneth and Sonia Thorn purchased their new Story homes back in December 2018, opting for a three-bedroom detached ‘Banbury’ bungalow at St Andrew’s View. This is the second Story home that the couple have purchased for themselves, and their two daughters also own homes built by the local developer – making it four in total for the family. Regarding the couple’s favourite features of their new bungalow, they said:

“We love our lounge – it overlooks a large garden with trees to the rear. The development is in a lovely, quiet location and as we are just a short drive away from Carlisle city centre, we have the best of both urban and rural living.”

There are currently just two homes remaining for sale at St Andrew’s View – the four-bedroom, detached ‘Balmoral’ house type priced at £309,950.
