Customer case study: The Sanderson

September 2023

Rebecca and Jamie, have been enjoying settling into their new Story home, at St John’s Manor in Callerton.

We recently caught up with them to talk about their experience, and what they love about the 4-bedroom Sanderson.

Read our Q&A to find out more or go straight to our guide about The Sanderson.

What made you choose St John’s Manor?

“The location of St John’s Manor really appealed to us. We love the semi-rural location with all the greenery and local country walks, alongside the convenience of being on the outskirts of Newcastle. The proximity to Ponteland was also a deciding factor as we regularly pop out for a meal at one of the many restaurants.”

Why did you choose The Sanderson?

“We chose the Sanderson as it ticked all the boxes for us. It has a large kitchen/dining/family area with plenty of room to cook, bi-fold doors to the garden, and an integral garage door, which is great as we’ve turned the garage into a gym. We also love the four spacious bedrooms, and the main bathroom, which has a bath and separate shower.”


What do you love most about The Sanderson?

“We love the kitchen/dining/family area, the kitchen area offers so much space for cooking and we love the 5-burner hob we upgraded to, the bi-fold doors are great on a summers day, and it’s lovely to sit on the sofa with a cup of tea on a morning.”

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

“We spend most our time in the kitchen/dining/family area.”

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

“We love the space, it’s always warm and it’s such a lovely blank canvas to make your own.”

Did you consider other housebuilders?

“We looked at other house builders in the area but nothing compared to Story Homes’ quality and specification.”

Would you recommend us?

“We absolutely love our home and have recommended Story Homes to many of our friends.”
