Retired Friends Opt For Three-Storey Living In Warton

Posted 4 January 2021 by Keith Osborne

Chris and Marlene sought out space and flexible living ,and found it in a brand new home at Highgate Park in Lancashire...

Two ladies who jointly bought a Barratt townhouse at Highgate Park are reaping the benefits of their three-storey ‘Norbury’ house type.

The layout of the property means having space of their own as well as somewhere to socialise together and keep each other company. Pooling their resources to purchase the property was also a great financial plus for both of them.

Retirees Chris (76) and Marlene (80) were keen to find a house that provided versatile space and found the ‘Norbury’ was the perfect match for their wishes.

Three storey properties offer flexible solutions to many challenges faced by a variety of buyers, with the adaptability of the layout enabling all occupants to live a flexible lifestyle with privacy.

Chris said: “We were delighted when we found a property to suit both of our needs. The layout of the home enables me to have the whole top floor to myself which I absolutely love as it means having a fantastic amount of space that I can personalise and make my own.”

Michaela Lancaster, sales director at Barratt Homes Manchester, said: “It’s no surprise that we’ve witnessed a rise in demand for our three-storey properties recently due to their versatility which suits many different buyers.

Highgate Park“Whilst these styles of homes provide the perfect space for growing families, they’re also very popular with friends or family wanting to buy together.

“With three floors available to residents, the opportunities to have your home exactly how you want it are endless, and our three-storey digital tool is the perfect opportunity to have a go yourself.”

Highgate Park, located on Texan Close, currently has a selection of three-storey properties available. There are a few of the ‘Helmsley’ house type, priced from £224,395, which offers two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, including one on the ground floor that could function as a home office. The ‘Brentwood’, at £240,995, is a double-fronted home with both a lounge and a separate family room, an open-plan kitchen/dining room, three double bedrooms (one with en suite) and a detached garage.

This development has some handy amenities, schools and transport links on the doorstep, and is just five minutes away from the beachfront of Lytham St Anne’s.
