Story plans 194 homes in Penrith

The housebuilder is aiming to transform three fields off Inglewood Road into a large development with a mixture of bungalows, terraced homes and detached houses.

Set on nearly 23 acres, the site is connected to Story Homes’ Centurion Rise development.

Story Homes wants to build 24 affordable homes and 170 open-market houses on the land. Of the affordable homes, four would be two-bed bungalows, eight would be two-bed terrace homes, four would be three-bed semi-detached residences and another eight would be three-bed terraces.

The open-market homes would break down to 38 three-bedroom homes, 93 four-bedroom houses, and 39 five-bedroom ones. Most of these would be detached homes, with a few set to be townhouses, terrace houses and semi-detached units.

The average home size would be 1,356 sq ft, with the smallest being a 768 sq ft two-bed terrace house and the largest a 2,343 sq ft five-bed detached house with its own double detached garage.

All of the homes would have a private garden space and a 32-amp single-phase electrical supply installed. This would enable the residents to easily install an electric vehicle charging point in the future.

In a response to growing sustainability concerns, Story is designing the homes to have air permeability that is 50% better than what is currently required by building regulations.

The company has also said that it can recycle an average of 90% of its construction waste.

Designed by Pod created the layout of the proposed development, while Urban Green designed the landscape.

Penrith is starting to sprawl a bit with the new developments in Carlton village. Only problem is these all feel very car dependent. Is anything being done to address this?
