Whether you’re returning to the office, continuing to work at home, or doing a bit of both, leading housebuilder Barratt and David Wilson Homes is highlighting how its Woburn Downs development in Milton Keynes is ideal for all.

Recent research has suggested that many businesses will be adjusting to this new hybrid style of working, where a combination of working at home and commuting is required.

This is due to many companies looking to save money and be more environment-friendly by using less office space, as well as accommodating the employees who have enjoyed working at home. However, to maximise productivity and maintain relationships, many companies feel time in the office is also essential.[1]

For residents who find themselves in this situation, having the perfect workspace at home as well as excellent commuter links are necessary.

Many of Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ properties at its Watling Street development have dedicated studies or work spaces which can help to achieve a good work-life balance whilst working at home, in which socialising isn’t impacted by work, and vice versa.

Avoiding working from bed or the sofa can help to stop lapses in concentration and will make it easier to relax once your work is finished.

All of Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ developments in Milton Keynes are purposefully chosen with location in mind, and Woburn Downs is no exception. The development has the perfect combination of ideal commuter links and countryside living.

For example, the development is located less than six miles from Milton Keynes. As well as this, Bletchley Train Station is less than four miles away, from which you can reach London in less than an hour.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Northampton, said: “The country adapted extremely well during the first lockdown, when many people had to experience working from home for the first time. As the current lockdown is gradually being eased and the way of working is shifting again, we want people to know that we have them covered.

“We don’t want our residents to settle for either good commuting links or a nice space to work at home, when our Woburn Downs development can offer them the best of both worlds.”
