“Over the past two years, we have been looking at new build developments. A few friends had downsized, as we were looking to do so. After looking at other builders we were not impressed and decided against a new build even though in theory we were attracted to the idea of a fresh new home.
“We passed the Story Homes development often, and liked the look of the development. It was the perfect walking distance to our friends and family. The Cooper came up and we liked the sense of openness of the development and the green areas in-between the homes.
“We liked the hedging and planting around the houses. We also saw that the houses were also solidly built and well designed.”
“It is PERFECT. It is detached but not too big. It looks like a traditional cottage and therefore feels like it has some character already. We’ve downsized from a 4-storey Victorian terrace with tall ceilings but we can still fit some of our favourite pieces of furniture in The Cooper.
“The layout is symmetrical, and feels spacious because there are so many windows around the property. We feel every bit of space is well utilised. Grahame LOVES the garage – place for storing and tinkering.”
What do you like most about living in a new build?
“Probably the space, the energy efficiency and how low maintenance they are. As the development has grown and more people have moved in, it is really nice. We share and connect with everyone as we have common experiences to compare.”
