Internet use has more than doubled in the last decade and whether it’s for personal or professional use, Shrewsbury home buyers could enjoy faster broadband.
New broadband and TV infrastructure is being built to serve new Redrow homes at Lime Tree Meadows under a partnership with Virgin Media, with potential benefits to the wider community.
A massive 82% of adults in Great Britain use the internet daily and with a growing number of people regularly working from home, connectivity and speed are increasingly important for householders.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), says: “The rise of digital technology has changed people’s priorities when it comes to what they want from a home. Increasingly our customers want to know about broadband speeds, the providers that service the area and how soon they can be connected to digital communications.
“Partnering with Virgin Media means that residents of Lime Tree Meadows will be able to move in with a broadband and digital TV connection already installed. It’s particularly useful for those who spend at least part of their working week ‘telecommuting’ but also means they can continue their personal daily digital digest too.”
A study by the TUC found nearly a quarter of a million more people work from home than 10 years ago, saving them time and money on costly commutes and providing increased flexibility.
With this in mind, selected homes at Lime Tree Meadows, include dedicated office space.
“Our homes have been well thought-out to meet the demands of modern life,” Pauline adds.
“One of those demands, for over 1.5million people nationwide, is the room to be able to work from home, while still keeping their home office space separate from family life. The four-bedroom detached Balmoral includes a dedicated study and is a prime example of a property that makes achieving the work-life balance very simple.”
Offering 1,808 sq ft of accommodation, and on the market at £417,995, the Balmoral is a substantial family home. Along with the study, the ground floor features a dual aspect lounge, with double doors that lead through to the open plan kitchen / dining room with adjoining utility. There’s a convenient cloakroom on the ground floor; while upstairs two of the four bedrooms benefit from an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining bedrooms.
Lime Tree Meadows offers a choice of three, four and five-bedroom homes with current prices from £279,995.
Located on Ellesmere Road, the homes are within each reach of the town centre, which offers plenty of shops, restaurants and other amenities to cater for residents’ daily needs. The local station offers direct links to Birmingham and Chester with journey times of around an hour to each.
The fully furnished show homes, including an example of the Balmoral, are open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information see www.redrow.co.uk/lime or call 01743 384259.
