Great, but not what they promise.

Review Date Nov 2021

All necessary shops are nearby for groceries, DIY, house decorations, pharmacy, etc). No traffic noise and great scenery and walks nearby.

Please review your development:

Design is great, however not much effort on renewables. Suggest more auditing of subcontractors work by developer to ensure quality is being delivered. House is lovely and spacious. Garden space is amazing and big. Garage is exactly what I wanted. Poor aftercare service, had to be rude to get major things sorted even after 2 years!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Although promised being delivered quality this was not the case throughout the house.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

In all honesty sometimes it has been poorly and other times alright.

Story Holmes, a true home

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Nov 2021

The area we live in, is quite good, since it has 2 shopping centers around the area, making it very easy to go to, and buying groceries when you cant use the car.

Please review your development:

Story holmes as an estate is definately one of the best there is and there aren’t many downsides at all. However, the conditions of those living next to the construction is slightly poor, with the roads being extremely muddy and dirty, and when dry, the dust is quite bad.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I would have only wished for the roads to be clean, that’s is all.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

When we had cracks in our ceiling, they sent builders and got it painted.

Great first home

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2021

Good amenities nearby, nice friendly neighbourhood. Parking is limited in the development which makes driving difficult due to cars parked on the road

Please review your development:

The site manager was easy to deal with, and any issues we had when we moved in have been dealt with in a timely manner. The house was built well, other than a few snags which were resolved. Good access to the a6 and motorways, easy to get to Lancaster and Preston

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Not everything will be perfect straight away and that is okay!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

We had a list of snags on arrival which have been resolved

Buying with Story Homes

Review Date Nov 2021

The distance from our home to the shops in the vicinity is very convenient. We aren’t too far from where we do our weekly shop and we are only a short drive away from open spaces to take our children to. A negative is that parking for visitors is limited which causes an issue on birthdays etc. Also, we have been in our home for over a year now and we are still to have our road finished.

Please review your development:

The houses on the development are beautiful to look at and the layout of houses has been well considered. However, access to the cycle path is limited which makes taking our young child for a bike ride difficult, as well as navigating round the development with a pram. Property management and rectifying “snags” has been hit and miss since moving into our home.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish we knew what to look for when snagging. Story said they would not accept a list from a professional snagger, but I wish we had hired one regardless. Address any poor finishes as soon as possible, and before you do your survey.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Some issues have been dealt with promptly and as we expected them to be; however, others have been pushed aside or we have been told that they meet NHBC standards and that they won’t be resolved. It has been hit and miss, and I still get frustrated at the poor finish of some of our home.
