HOUSEHOLD chores top the list as to why families don’t spend enough time together, but with a move to a new home that’s easy to maintain things could change for the better.
Designed with today’s busy lifestyles in mind, new Redrow homes at The Uplands in Shifnal are ideal for parents who want to free up time to have fun with their children.
Open plan layouts put the kitchen at the heart of family life, providing an inviting sociable space where everyone can gather.
A prime example of this is the design of the four-bedroom Henley show home featuring a combined kitchen, dining and family room spanning the entire width of the rear of the property. This multifunctional area enables parents to keep an eye on little ones while preparing dinner and then for all the family to meet around the table to catch up on each other’s news over a hearty home-cooked meal.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), said:
“Research suggests that two in five parents worry they don’t spend enough time with their children and top of the list of obstacles to that is household chores. What homeowners may not realise is that moving to a brand new home will not only give their growing family much-needed extra space, it could also free-up time as they won’t need to spend precious hours on repairs and renovations.”
“We’d encourage parents to visit the show homes at The Uplands and bring the children along too so that they can appreciate for themselves how the properties fit their family dynamics.”
The Henley also features a separate lounge for quieter moments, a utility to keep the washer and dryer out of the kitchen, plus a cloakroom all on the ground floor.
Upstairs, two of the four bedrooms in this generously proportioned home benefit from an en-suite, leaving the family bathroom to serve the remaining two bedrooms.
It’s not just the layout of the homes that’s been designed with families in mind.
The high specification includes family-friendly features such as soft close drawers in the kitchen, which give parents peace of mind that little fingers won’t get trapped.
The Uplands offers a choice of three and four-bedroom styles from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection. Prices start from £314,995, with a four-bedroom Henley similar to the show home available from £429,995.
