Final release of homes at The Silks

Story Homes has released the final four high-quality homes at The Silks in Galgate, following unprecedented demand from homebuyers in Lancaster.

This final release of homes includes a choice of two two-bedroom semi-detached ‘Hawthorn’ housetypes and two four-bedroom detached homes – our popular ‘Durham’ and ‘Arundel’, each thoughtfully designed to reflect the architectural heritage of the development whilst incorporating a range of unique features designed to meet the demands of modern family living, elegantly and beautifully.

The Silks is an executive development of 71 homes, all designed and built to a high specification, with more than 35 families already moved in.

Story Homes’ prime location in Galgate offers homebuyers the peace and tranquillity of country living while staying convenient to the city of Lancaster.

The double-fronted Arundel is one of most popular four-bedroom family homes.

The large hallway is striking when entering the property, offering lots of space to create an impressive entrance.

The lounge spans the length of the house and brings the outdoors in with French doors opening to the rear garden.

The home is great for both family living and entertaining with a generously sized kitchen and dining room.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms, an en suite off the master bedroom and family bathroom.

Sales manager Clare Wilson said: “We’re delighted that more than 50% of our customers have moved in to The Silks and the development is really coming to life now.

“We are in the final stages and only have four homes available for sale including two two-bedroom semi-detached homes and two four-bedroom detached family homes, so there is still a good choice available to suit all budgets.”

The attractive Hawthorn, two bedroom semi-detached house, is available to buy through Heylo’s Shared Ownership scheme.

The spacious lounge, kitchen/dining area and WC can be found on the ground floor, with two spacious bedrooms and master bedroom on the first floor.

Shared Ownership allows customers to buy a share in a new home, ranging from 25% to 75%, depending on what they can afford.

Heylo Housing owns the remaining share and you pay a reduced rent on that share.

50% Ownership Example
Property Value: £165,000
50% Share Value: £82,500
Rent on unsold equity: £189.06 per month

Renowned for their stunning street scenes, the development boasts a stylish mix of attractive exterior finishes, complemented by thoughtfully designed interiors.

There really is something for everyone at The Silks.

For anyone looking to live in the heart of Lancaster city centre, Story Homes has another development ‘High Wood’ with a range of three, four and five-bedroom homes available.
