Liverpool homes have room for all the family
WITH more people now living with three generations under one roof new homes in the sought-after Mossley Hill area of Liverpool offer a solution that allows families to balance proximity with privacy.
Almost three quarters of a million families in Briton now live with at least two other generations, according to a study carried out for the Ideal Home Show.
The figures include young adults still living at home with their parents and older people who have perhaps moved in with their grown up children.
And at Carnatic Court in the popular L18 district, buyers will find spacious homes that offer a stylish, spacious solution to multigenerational living that can be adapted to meet the dynamics of their family.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, says: “It was quite common in Victorian times for three generations of a family to live together and there’s been a resurgence of this in recent years. The key to everyone living in harmony is space and with that in mind some of our new homes at Carnatic Court are set out over three storeys, giving a nod to the design of traditional townhouses of days gone by.
“They’re ideal for larger families as they offer a degree of flexibility to your living arrangements whether you have your parents living with you or your grown up children are yet to move into a place of their own.”
The five-bedroom Elmswood lends itself perfectly to extended families living together.
The combined kitchen, family room and breakfast area provides a sociable space where everyone can gather and spend time together. The ground floor dining room well suited for use a sitting room for grandparents, leaving the first floor lounge for younger family members.
With two bedrooms boasting en-suites, one on the first floor and one on the top floor, there are effectively two master bedrooms – one for mum and dad, the other for granny and granddad, leaving the children to share the family bathroom.
Alternatively buyers with their grown up children living with them may choose to let them enjoy the privacy of having a floor of the home to themselves and adapting the space to suit their needs perhaps creating a study or home office.
Current prices at Carnatic Court start from £429,995 for a five-bedroom Rosemount set out over three floors. The Elmswood is available from £459,995.
The exclusive development enjoys a sought-after location and offers a rare opportunity to own a brand new home in the popular Mossley Hill Conservation Area.
There are several top performing schools nearby making it well suited for those with children. The homes are also close to historic Sefton Park and a wealth of amenities on Lark Lane and Allerton Road; while the city centre is also within easy reach.
