Home Is Where The Wi-fi Is
19 Oct 2020

The current climate has shown us just how easy it is to work from home, all you need is a quiet spot and broadband.

So, if that’s the case and you can choose where you want to live – rather than where you have to live – where would you move to?

Emma Smith, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes, commented: “So many people have changed how they live in the last few months and we’ve been receiving a high level of enquiries and reservations as a result. The current situation has highlighted what’s important to us all and lots of buyers are wanting to move to a larger property in a more rural location. Also, outside space has become a priority for many and a home office or a fourth bedroom – which could be used as a study – is being frequently requested.

“There’s no need to be in a busy city, if you’d prefer village life – you can work remotely, you just need space for a desk and broadband.”

French Furze has become popular with home workers and features 60 well-designed homes nestled in the picturesque village of Blackawton, set within the rolling South Hams countryside, near Totnes and Dartmouth.

Emma added: “Blackawton is a beautiful village with a thriving community; there’s a post office, shop, local pub, good school and a 15th century church. Plus, Blackpool and Slapton Sands are within easy reach.”

Nearing completion, there are just three homes available at French Furze. The Walden features an open plan kitchen and dining area with double doors leading out to the garden, there’s a separate living room, a utility room and a practical downstairs toilet. Upstairs there is a fantastic master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has a charming cottage-feel and includes a garage and parking.

The final four bedroom detached homes are available from £420,000 with 12 months mortgage paid (up to the value of £10,000) for reservations made by the end of November. For more details, or to arrange an appointment call 01803 701140.
