Many people who were forced to work from home during the pandemic, are now looking to adopt the new hybrid style of working.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the proportion of workers hybrid working has risen from 13% in early February 2022 to 24% in May 2022, whilst the percentage of those working exclusively from home has fallen from 22% to 14% in the same period.

Brooklands is ideal for those looking for the new hybrid working model as a number of the properties have a separate study included, as well as certain apartments that have a single bedroom or spare bedroom such as the Finchley that can easily be converted into a home office.

The National Express Coach Station is just a short walk from the development and has direct links to major cities such as Birmingham, Nottingham and Cambridge, as well as Manchester.

Those needing to travel to the Capital can take advantage of Milton Keynes Station which is just a few minutes away and can reach London Euston Station in under 40 minutes.

Surrounding towns and cities such as Northampton and Bedford are also easily accessible by road as the development is only a short drive from junctions 13 and 14 of the M1, making the commute that much easier.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “The ability to hybrid work is a top priority for many buyers looking to make the move to a new home and we believe Brooklands is a fantastic location that offers the best of both worlds.

“Here, residents can take advantage of this brilliantly connected area which makes commuting across the country a breeze.”

Residents who join the community at Brooklands will benefit from a wide range of great amenities on their doorstep, including Brooklands Square and the Centre MK which has a range of independent eateries and shops.

There is currently a range of one, two and three bedroom homes available to reserve at Brooklands with prices starting from £226,995.
