Why did you choose Story Homes?
The family were ready to take the next step up the property ladder, having outgrown their previous home and in need of more space. They looked at a number of new builds in the area as well as second hand properties, admitting that “new builds were never in the plan as we always wanted an old house!” before being wowed by our show homes and deciding on a beautiful Emmerson.
St John’s Manor is situated in the village of Callerton, an attractive area that is only six miles away from Newcastle upon Tyne, and four miles from the prestigious area of Ponteland. Christine confirmed: “I love the location, we’re just on the edge of Newcastle so have the best of the city with the quiet village feel of the countryside and it’s a lovely area to go for walks. We’re also close to commuter routes for driving.”
What was the buying journey like?
The family bought off plan and travelled to other Story developments to get a feel for the quality in the show homes and see the characterful street scenes for themselves. Christine said: “We visited the The Ridings in Carlisle to see the Emmerson show home at the time, which gave us a better idea of the size. We also considered the Wilson which would have meant using help to buy, however we decided the Emmerson best suited our needs.”
“Amber was a great support, she always kept us informed and was never pushy. She always seemed to be open and honest with us which made the sales journey easy. We felt well looked after and valued.”
