As more people work from home, the need for dedicated workspace is overtaking commuter links in buyers’ priorities and the new Elan homes in Castle Cary, Somerset balance both.
The final properties available at the Weavers Field development on Station Road includes generously proportioned four-bedroom homes set out over three floors and buying a home with an extra bedroom could enable the spare to be used as an office.
For those days when you need to physically be in work, the local station is within a two-minute drive or a 10-minute walk.
Tracey Ball, Regional Sales Director for Elan Homes, said: “Government guidance on working from home is being relaxed, with people being encouraged to return to the office from August but many have found that telecommuting rather than actually commuting works better for them. It’s caused a shift in buyers’ priorities as a study is now more important than being close to their workplace and as such they’re more inclined to make an occasional longer commute.
“Buying a home with an extra bedroom to use as a study, like the four-bedroom Chichester at Weavers Field, is an ideal solution. It’s so close to the station, putting Exeter and even London within commuting distance.
“It’s also perfect for those who are conscious about their carbon footprint as it’s set out over three floors, making best use of the land.”
Offering 1,604 sq ft of generous living space, the Chichester is priced at £450,000. It’s ready to move into with an upgraded kitchen with silestone worktop, integrated kitchen appliances and flooring throughout included.
The Chichester features an open plan kitchen and dining, plus dual aspect lounge. Both the lounge and dining area offer direct access to the rear garden via French doors. A utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, one with en-suite, plus the family bathroom.
The crowning glory of the property is the main bedroom, with dressing area and en-suite.
Along with the substantial Chichester, there’s also four-bedroom two-storey homes available in the final phase of Weavers Field, with prices from £350,000.
Situated on the edge of Castle Cary, Weavers Field is close to a selection of traditional shops and pubs. The historic Somerset town hosts a weekly market, with an excellent choice of primary, secondary and independent schools nearby.
