*Visit our fantastic show home*
Summerpark is Story Homes’ award winning, prestigious development of beautifully designed houses in Dumfries. This is one of our largest and most sought after developments and is ideal for those who want a peaceful location yet within easy reach of the town. The development offers 3 and 4 bedroom properties with phase three offering a fantastic array of styles including 3 bedroom bungalows, 3 bedroom terraced and 4 bedroom detached houses.

At Summerpark, we’ve combined the best of modern living. We’ve brought together a superb mix of properties, which exude kerb appeal, effortlessly blending traditional architecture with modern interiors. The development benefits from a picturesque street scene and a thriving community that has very quickly established a neighbourly environment.

The houses at Summerpark continue to sell well, largely due to the sensible prices for a quality home, and excellent location in a very good area, giving close proximity to road and rail networks and a supermarket and retail park just across the road.

The region is steeped in history, yet it offers a wide range of leisure experiences and activities to suit everyone. The town is probably best known for its links with the poet Robert Burns, where he lived from 1791. Dumfries offers all of the facilities expected of an important town including a swimming pool, parks, two golf courses, nightclubs, libraries, film theatre in the Burns Heritage Centre, as well as good shopping with a mix of major stores and specialist shops. The town holds an annual Arts Festival and the yearly Guid Nychburris Festival, with the Crowning of the Queen of the South and is a colourful and enjoyable celebration of its warm and friendly spirit.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

As well as the semi rural living aspect at Summerpark, the area offers superb local amenities including Tesco’s supermarket. You’ll also find pubs, restaurants, and shops plus other excellent local services associated with a thriving town, as well as several doctors’ surgeries and dental practices. For those who want to spend their leisure time shopping, Dumfries offers a good range of stores. Alternatively, The Lanes Shopping Centre in Carlisle is within easy reach. Both offer a full shopping experience... from clothes, shoes and cosmetics to books, DVDs and gadgets.

For the sport and leisure lover Dumfries’ ‘DG1’ opened five years ago and offers sporting, cultural and entertainment for the whole family with swimming pool, sports, fitness and beauty facilities as well as a programme of entertainment including music, drama, dance, comedy and classical ballet. Additionally Dumfries has its own ice rink which draws visitors from miles around.

The Dumfries and Galloway region is mountainous with many peaks over 2000 ft and Scotland’s most southerly point is The Mull of Galloway. The area has several claims to fame including that it was home to the world’s first Savings Bank, founded in 1810 and now a museum. The world’s first steamboat sailed on Dalswinton loch in 1788 and legend has it that Robert Burns was a passenger on the one and only voyage!


Dumfries has many nursery, infant and junior schools. Dumfries High School is the closest option for those moving up from primary school and there’s a bus stop just outside the Summerpark development.
