Home working is on the increase and those who buy a new home at Regent’s Grange in Chester could be able to spend more quality time with their families.
Situated just a short distance from the city centre, the development is just the ticket for those Chester workers who want their office to be close to home or for those who work from home, as many of the properties have either dedicated office space or an adaptable area for a desk and computer.
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Figures from the Office of National Statistics show a record number of people (£4.2million) people now work from home at least part of their week and Regus reports 37% of Chester workers are now based outside of their main office for more than half the week. The internet and the ability to work remotely has played a key role in this shift, along with people’s desire to spend more time with their families rather than enduring a lengthy commute.
“For those who work in Chester or who work from home, either part time or full time, Regent’s Grange is the perfect place for a family keen to readdress their work / life balance.”
Resident Phil Williams found that the four-bedroom Windsor house type was ideal for him and his family and also provided plenty of room to work from home.
He and his wife Stella have two young children, Amber, six, and Zachary, four. In his role as a business consultant, Phil often works from home so space to both work and play was important to all the family. The Windsor style home turned out to be the ideal choice for them.
“I use the fourth bedroom as an office,” Phil said. “My wife works in Chester so the location and size of the house has ticked all of our boxes.”
Other house types at the development would be perfect for homeworking too, such as the Oxford. All four bedrooms in this style home are doubles and with a large kitchen / dining area as well as a separate lounge, there is plenty of room to set up office space.
For those keen to find a better work / life balance and start a move to Regent’s Grange, current prices start from £309,995 for a four-bedroom Stratford house type. A range of more two, three and four-bedroom homes, including the Oxford and Windsor styles, are coming soon.
Boasting a highly desirable location in the sought-after village of Huntington, off Sandy Lane, Regent’s Grange is situated in close proximity to all the attractions of Chester city centre and the River Dee.
