LOCATION and lifestyle have made new homes in South Liverpool a popular choice with discerning buyers and with the final properties at Mossley Gardens now on sale, those who want to achieve the perfect work/life balance will need to act fast.

Working from home for at least part of the week has become “the new normal” for many, with the advantage of freeing up extra time to spend with family and friends.

During National Work Life Week (October 11- 15), Elan Homes is highlighting the benefits of moving to a new home in the sought-after L18 area.

Sales director for Elan Homes in the North Marie Morris said: “There’s been a real shift in people’s priorities when looking for a new home over the last 18 months and achieving a work/life balance is more important than ever before. There’s been a real shift in what buyers want in terms of location and Mossley Gardens ticks all the right boxes and more. The homes we’re building are within walking distance of Sefton Park, close to the café culture of Lark Lane and in an area well-served by top performing schools. Liverpool city centre is just a few miles away for those who need to physically go into work, but many of the larger properties include a study or there’s the option to create a work from home space on the galleried landing or within a guest bedroom.

“Among the advantages of moving here is that instead of wasting time commuting, you could enjoy quality time with family or friends. It could also mean swapping a sandwich at your desk for a lunchtime stroll in Sefton Park – the perfect way to focus your mind and enjoy a screen break in the fresh air. Those who want to enjoy this kind of lifestyle will need to act fast – the final phase of homes at Mossley Gardens is now on sale.”
