Why did you choose a new build over a second-hand property?
“We always thought we would buy a second-hand property and hadn’t really considered a new build. After discovering Story Homes, we quickly realised the benefits of buying new. The opportunity to move in without having to do any work is a luxury and you can personalise the house to your own taste and style.
“New builds are a lot more energy efficient than older properties too which will be hugely beneficial especially with the current energy prices.”
Does your new build have character?
“Story homes are full of character. I really like the exterior designs with the different brick types and stone sills and we could see the finer detail on the inside too with things like oak handrails on the staircase. We also love the addition of trees, plants and soft landscaping to the estate. This creates a nice feel as you drive through the development and makes it feel more established.
“A new build is like a blank canvas. You can make it entirely your own and it’s really easy to add character yourself. You can put your stamp on it through decoration and furniture.”
