Customer case study: The Emmerson

April 2023

Ben and Rachel moved into their 4-bedroom Emmerson in January, and have been enjoying settling into their new home, and its surroundings, on the Whins View development in High Harrington.

We recently asked them about their experience with us, and what they love about their new Story home.

Read our Q&A to find out what they had to say, or go straight to our guide about The Emmerson

What made you choose Whins View?

“Its central location between Workington and Whitehaven makes it really handy for work, and it’s close to the local shops. We also have family ties to the area.”

Why did you choose The Emmerson?

“We chose The Emmerson as we fell in love with the large lounge and the master bedroom, which both give us lots of space. Being a large family, The Emmerson is perfect for us.”

What do you love most about The Emmerson?

“We love the amount of space. The lounge and master bedroom are particularly spacious, but the kitchen is a also a great size, and all of the bedrooms are ideal for the kids, who all love their rooms.”

Which room do you find yourself spending the most time in?

“We spend most of our time in the lounge. It is a great space for us all to be together and it leads out to the rear garden, which will be great in the summer months.”

What do you like most about living in a new build?

“The space, the value for money, and the fact that we could move right in with minimal fuss. Also, the energy efficiency that comes with a new build home is an added bonus.”

Did you consider other housebuilders?

“Yes, we did consider other new build developments in the area, but we felt that the Whins View development was the best location for us, and  The Emmerson offered the best value for money.”

Did you consider a second hand property?

“No, we always preferred the idea of buying a new build.”

Would you recommend us?

“Yes definitely, we have three other family members all living in Story Homes properties, and we are all really happy with them.”
