Story Homes

Founded in 1987 by current CEO Fred Story, Story Homes is the one of the North of England’s largest and most successful housing developers, building homes in Cumbria, North West and North East England, as well as in Southern Scotland.

Their primary goal is to design and build quality homes that people really want to live in, and take great pride in building high quality homes that enhance the lives of those communities in which they build housing.
