Achieve the work/life balance in a new home in Worcester
Home working is becoming increasingly popular and buyers who do their homework will learn that new homes at Kings Park in Worcester offer the ideal solution
With more than 10% of people in the UK now spending some or all of their time working from home*, a number of properties at the Redrow development include offices or studies where they can do just that.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), says: “Technological advances means it’s now easier than ever for people to work from home. Many people now log on to their company’s computer system remotely rather than having to go out to the office, giving greater flexibility and helping them achieve the right work/life balance. We recognise that it’s important for so-called ‘telecommuters’ to have their own space where they can work away from distraction, rather than having to commandeer the kitchen table or the corner of a bedroom. With that in mind some of our larger properties, such as the five-bedroom Cheltenham, feature a study with ample space for a desk, bookshelves and filing cabinets.”
Priced from £414,995, the five-bedroom detached Cheltenham at Kings Park is a substantial home, set out over floors.
The expansive kitchen, breakfast area and family room is at the hub of the home. It’s complemented by a separate lounge, which offers a sense of privacy, and a dining room for more formal entertaining.
The study is on the first floor, along with the master bedroom with en-suite and dressing room. The other two bedrooms on this level share a ‘Jack & Jill’ shower room; while the remaining two bedrooms are on the top floor, along with the family bathroom.
Those who don’t need all five bedrooms could choose to give older children a TV lounge of their own or little ones a play room. Fitness fanatics could even make one of the rooms into a home gym to work out in.
The homes at Kings Park are also well suited to those who have to go out to work as the centre of Worcester is only two miles away and the M5 and M42 are within easy reach.
Buyers could find that a move to Kings Park works out easier than they could imagine. Homeowners could use part exchange and put their existing home towards the cost of a new one or secure a buyer via Redrow’s Mastermove service. Alternatively, those who have sold subject to contract could reduce the initial cost of owning a brand new home by up to 20% with the aid of a Help to Buy equity loan.
For information about the homes and the help available, visit Kings Park open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. Alternatively, call 01905 312623 or see www.redrow.co.uk/kings.
