Local developer Story Homes has unveiled the first two properties in its new collection.

Visitors are invited to The Ridings in Carlisle to look around the four-bedroom detached Hewson and Emmerson properties which are the first Story Collection’ homes in Cumbria.

The two new show homes have been attractively styled by Story Homes’ interior designers Show Business Interiors.

The Hewson is a four-bedroom property with 1,560sq ft of living space and integral garage.

The kitchen/dining/family area spans the width of the back of the property featuring French doors to the garden and there is also a utility room.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms and a main bathroom with a separate shower. The master bedroom features a dressing area and en-suite, and the second bedroom is also en-suite.

The Emmerson is a spacious four-bedroom property across three floors.

The kitchen/dining area has a feature bay window, and the lounge runs across the back of the property, with bi-fold doors to the garden.

The master bedroom spans the length of the second floor and features a dormer window, dressing area and an en-suite with a walk-in shower.

Hayley Blair, head of sales at Story Homes, said: “These are our first Story Collection show homes in Cumbria and it’s fantastic to see these new house types being brought to life.

“This collection incorporates the best of a Story home in terms of design, elevations and unique street scenes, plus internal layouts that offer modern, open-plan living spaces.”
