Size matters when you’re looking for a new home and those sizing up their options once their children have moved into homes of their own could discover that there is no room for compromise with a visit to The Uplands in Shifnal.
Recognising that as people grow older their housing needs alter, award-winning Redrow has designed homes with more mature buyers in mind.
For example, the three-bedroom detached Worcester and Leamington style properties offer an abundance of space – perfect for entertaining friends or for when the grandchildren come to stay – yet are easy to manage and efficient to run.
They’re available at The Uplands in Shifnal, where a Worcester style show home is open for viewing.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), explains: “We’ve seen an increasing trend in people looking to move after their children have moved into homes of their own. We prefer to describe these purchasers as rightsizers rather than downsizers as they want to find a home that’s the right size for their changing circumstances. Their wish list tends to be for somewhere with fewer bedrooms but larger and better appointed, more storage, larger bathrooms with walk-in showers and a reasonably sized but easy to manage garden. The three-bedroom detached Leamington and Worcester house types fit this brief perfectly.”
Recognising that the kitchen is the hub of family life, Redrow has made this the focal point of the Leamington’s ground floor layout, with a combined kitchen, dining and family room overlooking the garden. There’s also a separate lounge, utility and convenient cloakroom.
Up on the first floor all three bedrooms are doubles, with the master bedroom boasting both a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite with an extra wide shower to complement the family bathroom.
Similarly, the Worcester, has open plan living at its heart, with a handy utility and cloakroom adding to ease of life and, again, with three large bedrooms and an en-suite to the master.
The Worcester is available from £314,995 and the Leamington from £339,995.
Situated on Wolverhampton Road, on the edge of Shifnal, the new homes at The Uplands enjoy a rural outlook. The town centre is easily accessible; while Telford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham are also within easy reach by car.
Show homes at the development are open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information call 01952 700678 or see www.redrow.co.uk/theuplands.
