Why three-storey homes are perfect for a healthy work-life balance
With many businesses looking to include more flexibility to work from home, the importance of creating boundaries between working and enjoying downtime is becoming ever more important. While open-plan spaces make for the ideal place to socialise and spend time together as a family, for some, associating the same space with different aspects of your life can make it difficult to switch off after a day at the (home) office.
The three-bedroom Clarendon II, available from £595,000 and also eligible for a stamp duty discount of £15,000 until June, provides the perfect balance of shared rooms and personal space, with three floors to help establish a clear distinction between work and home-life. Even better, the home is readymade, meaning the expert team has already done the hard work of decorating, furnishing and landscaping the garden, so house hunters can move in to a beautiful home straight away.
On the ground floor, a dining and family room overlooking the garden offers the ideal space to spend time together, while a separate kitchen provides time away from the hustle and bustle – meaning there’s less chance of you keeping an eye on your laptop while simultaneously cooking your dinner.
On the first floor, the lounge provides a comfortable space to unwind, while a room at the front of the house makes for the ideal home office. The addition of a second floor removes the temptation to pop into the next room to check your emails, creating the perfect retreat, with both bedrooms on the top floor featuring an ensuite for an added touch of luxury.

Sarah Boyce, Sales Director for the Thames Valley, said:“The Clarendon II is the perfect property for those looking for a home complete with a layout and design that offers a real separation between working and relaxing.
“The development itself is one of the most advanced NHS England Healthy New Town sites, with robust design principles in place to encourage residents to live healthier, more active lifestyles. From an abundance of green space to a whole host of community facilities, The Steeples really does ensure homeowners prioritise their wellbeing and make the most of much-needed downtime.
“Our showhomes are open daily from 10am – 5:30pm, and we’d encourage anyone interested to book an appointment to see the beautiful properties we have to offer for themselves!”
With three- and four-bedroom homes available from £545,000, there is already an established thriving new community at The Steeples, supported by the creation of a new primary school, community pavilion and sports pitches, as part of our commitment to the regeneration of the local area.
Not only is there a selection of excellent private and state schools nearby, but the John Radcliffe Hospital is also within walking distance. Located just off the A40 and a short distance from the M40, travelling couldn’t be easier, and with direct trains to London from Oxford or Oxford Parkway stations in less than an hour, you couldn’t be better placed.
