Winter at The Woodlands is coming

November 2017

Join us this Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November between 11am and 4pm at The Woodlands, Shotley Bridge, for our Winter at The Woodlands event.

The festive event will give visitors a chance to explore the development’s two luxurious show homes, enjoy a mulled wine, mince pie and winter games, chat to Sales Executives about the collection of four and five-bedroom homes, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor.

The Woodlands, which was the first of our sites in the North East, launched in 2012 and is one of our largest in the region. Almost all of the 240 homes have been sold, with less than 10% of properties remaining available on the fourth and final phase. We expect construction to be completed during 2018.

The quality of the homes on the development and sustainability of the site have been recognised by the Insider North East Property Awards, UK Property Awards and LABC Awards over the last few years.

The development’s commitment to sustainability principles has also been rewarded. Homes at The Woodlands are built to meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes – a high benchmark for developers. They also meet Lifetime Homes design requirements and have been awarded the Secured by Design award for safety.

Lyndsey Walton, Sales Manager at Story Homes, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming families to our Winter at The Woodlands event this weekend. With this development nearing completion and a limited amount of homes remaining on the fourth and final phase, we are pleased to be able to offer visitors the chance to secure a new home in this desirable location for 2018.

“The views of the Derwent Valley, good transport links and high quality of the homes have proved appealing to customers since the start, and with most properties now occupied there is a thriving community on the development. We believe that we are offering something different from other developers in the North East, and we encourage those looking for a new home in the area to come along this weekend and see our superior finish and high specification for themselves.”

Those who reserve a home at the event this weekend will benefit from incentives such as part exchange on selected plots and floor packages, as well as having their holiday for 2018 taken care of with £5,000 of Virgin holiday vouchers.

Prices for homes on this development start from £229,950. For more information, call 01207 507784 or email
