Story Homes has a wealth of experience, which is highlighted in their properties at Magellan Park. Renowned for building in desirable locations Magellan Park is no exception; some of the houses here have views towards the Irish Sea. The show home opened recently and continues to impress visitors with its spacious interior and attractive exterior. Each property has been carefully positioned to create a street scene, which is pleasing to the eye, and which will ultimately create a community feel on this fabulous new development.
Magellan Park development offers a variety of quality 3 and 4 bedroom homes, beautifully laid out on the elevated site, overlooking the Irish Sea to the west and the Lakeland peaks to the east. Imagine living just a short walk from the coast yet being able to enjoy stunning views of England’s most spectacular natural landscape from your newly-built home. Open your eyes and you’re in Whitehaven, the North West’s best-kept secret tucked away on the Cumbrian coast, yet still within sight of the stunning Lake District National Park.
The fantastic mix of properties at Magellan Park ensures that this development appeals to people of all ages and at each stage of their property buying lifestyle; first time buyers and young professionals looking to live in a peaceful setting, but close to the town for work and entertainment. It is also popular with young families and those with grown up children looking to enjoy a tranquil location without been too far out from everyday life.
Whitehaven is a lovely historic coastal town with a Georgian port that continues to be a popular choice for those wanting the best of modern-day living. It has been highlighted in the national press as an ‘up and coming area,’ and benefits from having undergone extensive, yet sympathetic, redevelopment. The town hosts the Whitehaven Festival, now established as one of the biggest events of its kind in the UK. An extensively redeveloped harbour and new marina makes Whitehaven even more attractive is that despite its superb location - close to St bees at the start of the famous Coast to Coast Walk and with easy access to the M6 and good rail links sitting on the Cumbrian Coast Line- house prices here offer good value for money.
