Why choose a new build home?

March 2022

There is often a question over why customers would choose a new build over a second hand home, and the theory that you get more bang for your buck with an older property. Well, we beg to differ…

There are many advantages of buying a new build home with a major benefit being the sustainability and energy efficiency. Building sustainable homes and communities, working in an environmentally friendly way and protecting our surroundings is integrated in everything that we do – from sustainable urban drainage systems, to energy efficient homes and recycling across our sites and offices.

With a high specification included as standard in a Story home, you can expect low maintenance costs, fewer repairs, lower fuel bills and there’s no renovation required. Find out how a new Story home could save you money here. Sounds like a smart move to us! Plus, our homes are designed with flexible layouts to suit a variety of lifestyles and grow with you as a family.

We include features you wouldn’t find in a second-hand home, or that certainly wouldn’t come as standard, such as spacious open plan kitchens with integrated energy efficient appliances, large bi-fold doors that open out onto the turfed garden and paved patio and luxurious bathrooms with double ended baths, waterfall showers and Porcelanosa tiles – to name just a few. Whether you need additional space for a home office, playroom, snug or extended dressing area, we’ve got you covered. Discover the way to live in a Story home, it’s anything but standard.


We pride ourselves on looking at the bigger picture. We are committed to providing more green spaces, wider paths and improving community areas, creating a luxurious way of living that doesn’t end once you step outside of your home. Our street scenes are not to be sniffed at with our design team carefully plotting out a variety of house types, ensuring the overall look is diverse and characterful to last a lifetime.
