Single storey living grows in popularity

13 August 2018

Michelle Baker, sales director at Persimmon Homes Anglia has outlined why single storey living is growing in popularity across East Anglia.

Michelle Baker, sales director for Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “Although they are one of Britain’s most desired house styles, only around 300 bungalows are built every year across the whole of the UK.”

“To address this gap in the market, we offer bungalows suitable for all ages at many of our developments across Norfolk.”

“The properties appeal to young buyers looking for contemporary apartment style living but with the added bonus of a garden, and to the young at heart who prefer the convenience of the single storey lifestyle.”

“There are also those who see it as a sound investment, making use of their bungalow as a second home or weekend retreat so they can take regular holidays in our beautiful region.”

At Beauchamp Grange, in Caister, Persimmon currently has a two bedroom Ripley style home for sale with a price tag of £224,995 or a spacious three bedroom Beaulieu bungalow for £255,995*.

With almost 20 years’ experience in the housing industry, Michelle has listed her top five reasons for single storey living:

  • Lifestyle – families will appreciate open floor plans and spacious gardens, letting them make the most of their time together
  • Safety – for those with mobility issues, bungalows are a safe and accessible option – with the living space on one level you don’t have to worry about getting up and down the stairs. Those with young families will also appreciate single storey living as it helps to increase safety and parent aren’t left worried about children falling down the stairs
  • Maintenance – with everything is on the same floor you don’t have to worry about tackling the stairs with cleaning equipment, or using high ladders for window cleaning
  • Efficiency – new-build bungalows are an eco-friendly option for those wanting to lower their carbon footprint, using less energy and are more cost effective to heat

Michelle added: “People choose bungalows for all sorts of reasons, but we suggest that buyers seriously consider the flexibility of the space and imaginative layouts when they come to choose their next home.”

“Buying a home tops the list of the most important and expensive decisions that people make in life, so getting it right is critical.”

Persimmon Homes includes bungalow styles at many of its developments across Anglia.
