Success Story – Summerpark continues to thrive over a decade since launching

August 2019

It’s been more than 11 years since Story Homes began works at its Summerpark development in Dumfries, and the new-build homes at the development are proving to be more popular than ever.

Summerpark, which opened in January 2008, was Story Homes’ first ever development in Scotland and is still the biggest development in Dumfries and Galloway to date. Summerpark is now home to almost 350 residents, plus two family play areas that were provided for homeowners to enjoy, and the development has also received numerous awards in recognition of its quality.

Summerpark is a beautiful development of new-build homes, and every property is finished using a variety of high specification materials. Internally, the layouts have been designed with modern living in mind, giving home-owners more space inside and out.

Hayley Blair, Head of Sales for Story Homes in Cumbria and South Scotland, commented: “We’re extremely proud of our Summerpark development and what has been achieved over the last 11 years. Our aim was to create a beautiful development of high specification family homes that would offer homebuyers in Dumfries and Galloway the very best in new build properties. Over a decade later we’re thrilled to have achieved this goal, completing almost 350 high quality homes.”

Fiona Ure, Sales Executive at Summerpark added: “Working at Summerpark feels like we’re part of one big family. Over the 11 years we’ve seen our residents get married, become parents and even grandparents, and we’re really grateful to have witnessed these milestone moments for our customers. We very much feel like we’re part of the community.”

The properties at Summerpark have improved choice across the local housing market in Dumfries & Galloway and the development has helped increase direct and indirect investment in local shops, services and facilities. The development has brought economic benefits to the area during the construction phase, through land purchases, community contributions, sustaining jobs for local subcontractors and support for local businesses and supply chains.

Story Homes will continue to build high quality homes at Summerpark, with further phases of the development planned for the future. If you wish to find out more about Summerpark, please call our Sales Executives Fiona and Amanda on 01387 808236 or email
