The Old Orchard Is The Perfect Choice For Flexible Working
06 Apr 2016

If predictions are anything to go by, flexible working will be integrated in up to 70% of organisations by 2020, according to a report by Lancaster University.

Award-winning housebuilder, Linden Homes is offering house-hunters that are keen to adopt more flexible hours and the space to work from home, properties in the perfect location.

Situated in the picturesque village of Charlton Marshall, The Old Orchard is a collection of new homes, ideally designed for people looking to turn their dream of working flexibly into a reality.

Close to the market town of Blandford, the homes are set in an idyllic location in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. Remote in its immediate surrounding, the development offers the perfect base for the peace and quiet needed to get your head down whilst working from home.

However, for the days when an office visit calls, The Old Orchard is also just a short drive from both Poole and Bournemouth, two of the fastest growing tech-hubs in the UK – which are both just 20 and 30 minutes by car respectively.

Susan Whiting, marketing manager for Linden Homes South commented on the increase of flexible working: “Working from the office is no longer seen as the norm. Times have changed and what works for one individual, does not necessarily work for another.

“The ability to work flexibly has many attractive benefits; doing away with the daily commute, freeing-up more time to spend with your family and the opportunity to enjoy a better work/life balance to name just a few. Simply put, working from home gives you more hours in the day to what you want to do.”

“The Old Orchard is the ideal choice for buyers wanting a home which can be adapted to suit a good work/life balance. There are a range of properties available and all homes can be flexibly arranged to suit buyer’s individual working and living requirements.”

The Old Orchard includes three bedroom detached bungalows, a two bedroom apartment, and a mix of three and four bedroom homes. Known locally as Walkers Field, the original apple orchard – from which the development derives its name – will be retained within the development. For families, there is also good quality primary and secondary schooling nearby.
