A housebuilder has been nominated for a national property award for its development of a new Lancaster estate.

Story Homes, which builds houses across Lancashire, Cumbria, North East England and South West Scotland, has been put up for Best Residential Development in Lancashire for High Wood, Lancaster, and for Best Developer Website.

Steve Errington, Chief Executive of Story Homes said: “To be acknowledged by these awards is a big honour.

“The UK Property Awards recognise excellence across the board and to be shortlisted for not one but two awards is a very high accolade and recognition of our achievements.

“These nominations are due to the hard work and dedication put in by our staff here at Story Homes.

“We are dedicated to achieving the best quality house building in the areas in which people want to live.”

Built on the former Lancaster Moor Hospital site, High Wood in Lancaster is a development of 197 new-build houses.

It is a sustainable community of three, four and five bedroom homes with a mixture of detached, semi-detached, terraced and town houses; designed and finished with a mix of natural stone, render and brick.

Story Homes worked closely with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to make the development on Quernmore Road possible.

The development also features outdoor space and new footpaths and cycle ways linking to existing networks.

Catherine Cannon, Story Homes’ marketing manager, who was responsible for delivering the website, said: “Story Homes’ new website was created to give customers the best-possible experience when viewing our developments.

“The company felt that the quality of our homes should be reflected in the website’s user experience, while also showcasing Story Homes’ company values.

“Since launching in autumn 2013, the site has proved popular with customers and we are obviously pleased with the recognition that has 
been achieved through the UK Property Award nomination.”

The winners of the UK Property Awards will be revealed on October 24 at an awards dinner in London.
