New homes ticking boxes for remote workers in Wellington

New homes ticking boxes for remote workers in Wellington

With 26% of Brits planning to work from home either permanently or occasionally after lockdown, home office space is becoming increasingly desirable in a new home.

While once considered a luxury ‘extra’, a home office is now on more home movers’ wish lists as an essential requirement. Fortunately for remote workers in Shropshire, Anwyl has designs available to tick that box and more at Haygate Fields, in Wellington, near Telford.

According to a survey by market comparison website, two thirds of people say they are more productive while working from home, while 89% say they have reduced their expenditure by not commuting or buying lunch out.

In fact, the average home worker saves £44.78 a week or £2,329 a year – savings that could be put towards more space in a brand new home.

Anwyl’s designs at Haygate Fields include the detached four-bedroom Kingsley, priced at £357,995.  Ideal for families, the ground floor of The Kingsley features a large open plan kitchen, dining and family room that spans the rear of the property, with a separate living room, utility and study.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The main bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes.

Thomas Bradley, Anwyl’s senior sales manager, said:

“We have a superb collection of new homes available at Haygate Fields to suit a range of needs. For those who don’t require a dedicated study, the additional downstairs room in The Kingsley could be used instead as a play room or games room.

We also have other flexible properties available for those who may need a work space that perhaps doubles as a guest bedroom. For example, homebuyers moving from a three-bedroom home up to a four-bedroom property such as ‘The Cardigan’ or ‘The Farndon’ could utilise the extra bedroom as a multi-functional space that would suit a desk area and a day bed.”

Wellington offers remote workers the best of both worlds. An historic market town, it boasts a wide range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants while also being the northern gateway to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

When not working from home commuters have easy access to the M54 and Wellington train station. Rail connections are frequent and intercity with Shrewsbury and Wales to the West, and Wolverhampton, Birmingham and London to the East and South.

As a family run business, Anwyl takes a thoughtful approach to creating its developments, focusing on building communities that include new homes, green spaces, play areas and more.

The current range of three and four-bedroom homes at Haygate Fields is priced from £249,995.
