Demand for home offices in Buckinghamshire makes leading developer prioritise properties that ‘work’ for you

The study in the Cambridge show home at Lavendon Fields

With working from home continuing to be the new ‘normal’ for many, having the right space to work from is essential.

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, is highlighting how the developer has responded to the new needs since the pandemic by putting together his top reasons why a David Wilson property might be the solution to working from home.

These include:

Redesigned wardrobe package

A new Wardrobe Package has been especially launched in response to the demand of people working from home. This includes a space-saving wardrobe which can be turned into a fold out desk, making it the perfect place to work from home. In particular, this is a great way for children to maximise the space in their room whilst having a designated area to study or complete homework from.


Show home inspiration

Since the pandemic, we’ve redesigned our show homes to demonstrate to property seekers how flexible our homes are for home working.

We now include a desk space in multiple rooms in our show homes, so people can see which space might work for them as a home office.

We have also noticed that many of our current residents are using a dining area as a space to work from. This is because many of our homes include both a kitchen diner, as well as a dining room. It is therefore clear to see how easily adaptable our homes can be to meet the needs of the new ‘normal’.


Energy efficiency

Working from home significantly increases the amount of energy your home uses through electricity and heating, which in turn will increase the cost of your bills. However, our homes save residents in their energy usage in many other ways.

In fact, our new build properties are designed using the latest methods of modern construction, making a David Wilson home 65% more energy efficient than an older house with modern day improvements.[1]


Location, location, location

We carefully pick the location of our developments so that residents gain the best of both worlds, country living and proximity to amenities. It is important to take breaks whilst working from home, and our residents can take a walk to many amenities. Many of our developments have shops, café’s and other essentials on site.

Our developments also include a large amount of green open space. For example, our Lavendon Fields development in Buckinghamshire is made up of 44% open space. This helps to give residents the motivation to get out and wind down after a day of working from home.

Furthermore, it is important to recognise that many people will be balancing both working from home and commuting to an office, now being coined ‘Hybrid Working’.[2] That’s why we’re proud to know that all of our developments have excellent road links and easy access to train stations to make commuting a breeze.


National pledge for future sites to have fibre connection

 Finally, as many households have a number of people trying to work or study from home at the same time, having a strong internet connection is crucial.

We’re future proofing our homes and have announced a new industry first service delivering fibre connection and a choice of 18 ISPs at our future developments. This means residents of our homes can be at ease knowing they are working with fast internet speeds.


David Wilson Homes’ Lavendon development in Buckinghamshire, Lavendon Fields, has a range of four and five bedroom homes available, many with study spaces ideal for working from home.
